Fred Guttenburg, father of one of the Parkland shooting victims, has done a pretty good job of dressing down Brett Kavanaugh for complaining that his family is "totally and permanently destroyed" by the sexual assault allegations leveled against him by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. But I don't think he went nearly far enough, so I'm going to pile on:
Judge Kavanaugh, you have no clue what having your life ruined even looks like, let alone having come within artillery range of actually having it happen to you. You are living one of the most privileged lives ever lived by a human being in the entire history of our species. You are one of the most elite and powerful citizens of the wealthiest and strongest nation in the history of human civilization. You have a healthy and intact family, a roof over your head, hot and cold running water that you can drink without getting sick. You have a secure job that you will likely keep despite the credible allegations of criminal behavior that have been leveled against you. You have not been charged or perp-walked. You have not suffered brutality at the hands of law enforcement. You have not been convicted and served time for a crime you did not commit. You have not been the victim of sexual assault. The only thing that has happened to you (so far) is that someone levied a charge against you that has (so far) delayed your confirmation to the Supreme Court. If that is the worst thing that ever happens to you in your life then you are fortunate indeed. It is pathetic that you would complain about it at all, let alone in the petulant tone of a spoiled and entitled adolescent. The only disgraceful behavior here is yours and that of your supporters.
Seriously, dude, man up. The charges levied against you are serious and credible. If you really wanted to clear your name, you should have done it by calling for an FBI investigation, not by whining and sniveling about how unfair the process has been. Life has not been unfair to you. The thumb of fate has tilted the scales heavily in your favor. Even if these charges are false (doubtful) and even if they end up derailing your nomination to the Supreme Court (also doubtful) you will hardly be the first person in history who failed to get promoted for some random reason. These things happen in life. Deal with it.
