ONE OF LIFE’S LITTLE IRONIES

Brett Kavanaugh is now a US Supreme Court justice – for life.

The Palm Springs, CA anchor who imprudently came to Kavanaugh’s defense several weeks ago in a lengthy Facebook post is out of a job.

Kris Long, a former NewsBlues “Bonehead of the Day” who disappeared from the airwaves of News-Press and Gazette’s KPSP after his Facebook post of September 17th, resigned at the end of last week.

In a written statement on Oct. 5, Gulf California Broadcast Company General Manager Jerry Upham wrote that the Palm Springs station had accepted Long’s resignation “effective immediately.”

Long later deleted the post, but also defended what he had written.
“You are beyond dreaming of you think 17 year old boys are not going to misbehave from time to time as they begin to attempt relationships with the opposite sex. That is just the way we animals are made!” He then described the actions that Kavanaugh was accused of by Christine Blasey Ford as “some lesser miscreant behavior from four decades ago.”

Depending on who you’re reading these days, Dr. Ford 1) made it all up, 2) identified the wrong guy or;

Kavanaugh is 1) innocent, 2) the victim of a political hit job or, in the eyes of the formerly-employed Long 3) guilty of “some lesser miscreant behavior from four decades ago.”

Ever see the movie “Rashomon?”
