Images: The Hand
For courageous sexual assault victim Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the searing memory from her attempted rape was the laughter of drunken prep thug Brett "KavaNut" Kavanaugh and his sick sidekick from Georgetown Prep, Mark Judge. We can't escape the infuriating and powerful story she told of KavaNut's hand over her mouth while he was trying to remove her clothes: the silencing a female victim -- just 15 -- by a more powerful male, an obscenity which continued into last week's hearing courtesy of the all-white male Rethuglican Judiciary Committee majority. Two artists have captured the essence of the outrage. November can't come soon enough.
