I have some points which might be of interest to those whose minds have not been completely captured by the national derangement- Generally, that we shouldn't be talking about any of this! The accusation is against a minor, about 35 years ago.

1. If she had reported it, I assume all the records would have been sealed, BECAUSE THEY WERE MINORS!

2. The statute of limitations exists for good reasons. one is the impossibility of even approximating a just decision 35 YEARS LATER, on accusations that we can't even be confident are real events.

3. If it all happened, approximately as described, it would say NOTHING of consequence relevant to the question of whether Kavanaugh will be good at his job, because what it would say is that teenage girls, being ignorant and silly, sometimes choose to be in situations they would be wiser to avoid, and teenage boys sometimes do the same, and, every now and then, the consequences are dire (or, as in the case described, almost dire, but still frightening).

Once, we had a reasonably workable system for avoiding most of this stuff- we routinely kept males and females separated, especially when they were young and barely in control of themselves. No system is perfect, but, it should be obvious, to those not entirely deranged, that what we had was better than just looking the other way, hoping that the "kids are alright", while hilarity ensues, and then trying to litigate it, 35 years later, in the court of public opinion, for political gain. Because THAT is crazy!

Those "Space Age" astronauts were men of boundless courage and determination: they strapped themselves in and stared not just death in the face but death in hideous and unknown ways. Yet they were also ordinary men, who were called upon to do extraordinary things and rose to the challenge.

The best news is, is that Obama isn't responsible for it.
