Perhaps someday, scientists will be able to definitively trace the synapse sequence in the mind of CNN host Alisyn Camerota. For now, it would appear to work like this: because Brett Kavanaugh might have thrown ice at someone in a bar, it "makes more sense" that he sexually assaulted Christine Ford and prevented her from crying out by holding his hand over her mouth.
That, at least, was Camerota's "logic" on New Day this morning. After John Avlon dismissed the alleged ice-throw incident as a "distraction" and "a degradation of the debate we're having," Camerota countered:
"I disagree. I think it's part and parcel of the entire thing. I think that if you are known as a belligerent, mean, fighting drunk that's relevant. I think that it's relevant to then a woman who says that you would corner her and put your hand over her mouth, somehow that, I think, makes more sense than if you were just a fun drunk who always fell right asleep. Okay. So I think that it is relevant."
That's a new one: guilt by ice-association. In fact, the incident reveals nothing of relevance about Brett Kavanaugh—but plenty about the absurd lengths to which the MSM will go in an attempt to sink his nomination.
