Midterms are about base sentiment and this will sure-as-shooting get sentiment in an uproar. But given the already howling-mad condition of those clustered around the partisan poles, one wonders what further intensification is possible. At a certain point, the people screaming “feminazi” and “pig” at each other through clenched teeth can’t be intensified any more before they spontaneously combust. And little piles of ashes are darned hard to get to the polls.  But what about the non-immolation set? There’s not yet been any methodologically sound polling to assess where voters nationally are on the accusations and the nomination in the wake of Christine Blasey Ford’s claims. But if what we saw previously on the pick holds true, we’d imagine that there is more opposition than support for the nomination, but that’s something like a third of the electorate is undecided or only lightly attached to either position.  To state the obvious, much will depend on what is revealed (or withheld) and the means and timing of what transpires. Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is trying to walk the fine line between pushing the matter to conclusion and railroading a lifetime appointment to the most powerful court in the land. Democrats, as they consistently have been throughout the process with Kavanaugh, are ham-fisted in their efforts to seize on the controversy.  But that does not mean that Republicans couldn’t still end up overreaching themselves. It would be dire for the GOP to push the nomination out of committee without a hearing only to have it fall apart in the full Senate. The reason Republicans on Judiciary want a hearing with Ford so badly is that they fear new allegations or details after they vote.  That’s a reasonable fear since Democrats certainly would like nothing better. The longer Kavanaugh twists in the wind, the more flies he will attract. We have read in recent days about the sexist conduct of Kavanaugh’s college fraternity, the louche conduct of his prep school
