As if anyone needed reminding, this whole Brett Kavanaugh debacle started when somebody leaked a letter that Sen. Dianne Feinstein had been sitting on for six weeks detailing an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh while he was in high school.

That was it — that’s why the Senate Judiciary Committee bent over backward to get Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to testify, even if they had to fly to California to interview her.

But as plenty have noticed, the goalposts keep moving; after Kavanaugh angrily defended himself against allegations of sexual assault, the focus turned from his testimony to his temperament — was he just too out-of-control to serve on the Supreme Court?

And now the New York Times is looking into a time Kavanaugh threw ice on a bar patron back in college because they have to print something while the FBI does its seventh background check.

Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker came right out and admitted what most of us know; it’s no longer about whether Ford’s accusations are true, but whether Kavanaugh is the right person for the job — and as he’s a conservative, or course he’s not.

Yeah, Booker, you were supposed to keep that part about his innocence or guilt not mattering quiet.

Democrats certainly seem to be less-than-confident in what another round of FBI interviews on which they insisted will turn up.

“He used language that frankly shocked a lot of us” — are you OK, Cory? Would you like a tissue?
