As Twitchy reported Monday, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team, while supposedly readying Ford for her sworn testimony on Thursday, was still trying to negotiate the conditions of Ford’s appearance, objecting to the idea that the Senate Judiciary Committee had hired an experienced sex crimes prosecutor to do some questioning.

Ford’s team is getting some backup from sources like the New York Times who are calling the idea sexist, as well as from Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, who calls the Republican senators cowards.

But wasn’t the old complaint that all GOP members of the Senate Judiciary Committee were old white men? And that they couldn’t possibly be expected to sensitively question an alleged sexual assault survivor?

Well, forget about all that. Now those same senators are cowards for bringing in a female attorney specializing in sex crimes.
