Satire done right
Media outlets are agog, and some are even two gogs, over the latest allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. A woman who may or may not exist has given the New Yorker magazine details of an incident that may or may not have taken place but which has been confirmed by several witnesses who say they weren’t there. Writer Ronan Farrow says the possibly imaginary woman did not remember the time or location of the incident but that this is a normal reaction to sexual trauma especially when suffered by people who may not be real.
Hearing of the new charges, Democrat Senator Dick Durbin said, “I believe her, but then I’m a complete sleazeball so I never trust anything I say.”
Meanwhile, super-trustworthy porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti says he has a client who has extremely credible evidence that she has made up a story about Kavanaugh which, if true, would end his career. Avenatti said he could not give full details until there were at least a dozen cameras pointed in his direction, but he hinted the story involves six underage girls, a rubber chicken, a gang of pirates, three circus clowns and a graphic description of a sexual organ that may or may not belong to a woman who is absolutely sure Kavanaugh would have brutally raped her if they had ever met.
