Dr. Ford’s latest excuse for not appearing before Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday: she has a fear of flying, and would have to drive across the country to get there.

I hitchhiked from Greenwich to California in three days in 1970 when I was 16, but I suspect Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser thinks it will take from today until at least a day or two past November’s election before she can arrive in Washington.

The Republicans should just end this bullshit and vote to confirm tomorrow, but Grassley has taken a more politically-savvy approach, and says the Judicial Committee will fly west to accommodate the liar.
