Culture War Roundup for the Week of September 24, 2018

Ford/her therapist are not releasing all the therapy notes, and nobody takes that as some kind of sinister plot (except for the people convinced it's all a sinister plot).

Well, that brings up an interesting question. Why shouldn't it be taken as a sinister plot? Or at least, you know, be seen as evidence her side isn't totally on the up-and-up?

Allegedly we all just want an impartial investigation to get at the truth, right? If so, this is the most useful evidence on Ford's side -- in fact, it is the only evidence on Ford's side, given that she has no witnesses or anything else to back her up. Why do we then look at her side concealing it from everyone, nod, and say "yup, that's perfectly reasonable"? I'm not saying give it to the news media (though ironically her partisans did do that) but, you know, give it to the FBI?
