Congressional beers

Many interpretations are finding their way from the media, to the very people who watched another fiasco from congress. The news is out: [After Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s heart-wrenching and credible testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, pundits wondered whether Brett Kavanaugh would adopt a gentler tone during his own appearance.
He did not. Instead, he leaned in to being angry. He spoke in a near-constant loud monotone. At times, he yelled. At other points, his face scrunched up with rage, appearing nearly vicious. Unlike Ford, who was sympathetic, measured, and vulnerable, Kavanaugh was aggressive. Unabashedly emotional. Self-righteously angry even when he began to cry.]
Imagine if Brett Kavanaugh drank a few beers during the confirmation hearing. Imagine if the entire congress cared.
