Good read ... LOL

[QUOTE]One of the more desperate shots across Kavanaugh’s bow came in this op-ed at the Washington Post from Antonia Noori Farzan. The subject? Bar fights and what they say about people.


Dad was not a large man (and neither am I) but he was still an Army sergeant [sic] through and through. I still remember clear as day the sight of him standing and backing away a few steps along the bar as the larger man approached. Reaching out with one hand he grabbed a cup full of those plastic stirring straws you usually get in drinks...


The fight was over. It was what my father used to describe as a two hit fight. “Me hitting you. You hitting the floor.”

I managed to avoid getting into any bar fights until the week I graduated from boot camp. Then I wound up in one at the enlisted men’s club at the base. I still have no idea how it started or who was involved, but it swept up most of the place. I hit a few people, a few people hit me, then the MPs broke it up. Throughout my twenties and early thirties, I was probably in between one and two dozen bar fights, faring better in some than others. I honestly don’t remember them all in detail.

So does it say something about men if they’ve been in bar fights? Does it make you more masculine and impressive? Does it make you crude and low class? Maybe it’s just something that a lot of us went through when we were young. What Kavanaugh was involved in doesn’t even meet the basic definition of a bar fight. In fact, throwing your drink at somebody would probably be looked at as more of a passive-aggressive move in some circles. And I highly doubt it says anything about a man in his fifties serving on the bench. But hey… it gave us all a chance to walk down memory lane for a little while and recall precisely how dumb we could be at times. So good job, WaPo. I’m sure one person who will enjoy reading about this over and over is Supreme Court Associate Justice (for life) Brett Kavanaugh.
