False Alarm

I suggested in Rationality that I had a little theory.  As I started writing to develop it, I discovered that the Democratic strategy as it developed in the Kavanaugh hearings was not some new thing I was discovering, it was just a variation of The Toxoplasma of Rage.  Embracing ever-more farfetched claims and tortured explanations was only a way to keep showing ones bona fides, one's loyalty, one's status as a foxhole friend.

I mean, anyone can be loyal to you when you're right.
