If you thought ‘comedian’ Jimmy Kimmel’s comment on Monday about cutting off Brett Kavanaugh’s “pesky penis” represented a low point for Democrats, then you don’t know Democrats.

On Tuesday, The Washington Post published a piece contesting Kavanaugh’s claim that he couldn’t have committed the acts he is being accused of since he was a virgin in high school and college. But if Post writer Eugene Scott had paid attention to the transcript from Kavanaugh’s interview the night before with Fox News Channel’s Martha MacCallum, which was the jumping-off point for his article, he might have noticed that the judge’s claim specifically addressed the accusation of gang rape leveled by porn lawyer Michael Avenatti. (Scott earns extra credit for making the same mistake that Avenatti made in an appearance on CNN the same day.)

The redoubtable far-left Tinseltown denizen Jim Carrey weighed in with a tweet, accompanied by one of his famous drawings, that accused Kavanaugh of “partying and pillaging” his way to the Supreme Court. The effort causes one to ponder whether the reason Carrey is so fascinated with pictures is that he can’t read.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Finally there is criminal defense attorney Yodit Tewolde, who was a guest on CNN’s “Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin” on Tuesday. The segment was intended to focus on the breaking news that Bill Cosby had been sentenced to three to 10 years on sexual assault charges, but Tewolde went off-script:

I’m looking at people actually saying and applauding the judge [O’Neill] and his sentence and then in the same breath wanting to defend Kavanaugh. It’s disturbing to me because … this is a monumental, defining moment this week when you have someone like Cosby going to prison and then in the same breath having Kavanaugh possibly going to the highest court in the land. Anyone that’s defending Kavanagh could not in the same breath now applaud this verdict that this judge has handed down … it just doesn’t make sense.

If Tewolde is aware that Brett Kavanaugh has not been charged with a crime, then she is not showing it.
