They're going to try to put this guy in come Hell or high water

Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh has calendars from the summer of 1982 that he plans to hand over to the Senate Judiciary Committee that do not show a party consistent with the description of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, according to someone working for his confirmation.

Because as every teenaged boozing partier knows, you put the dates of those parties on a calendar.
The calendars do not disprove Dr. Blasey’s allegations, Judge Kavanaugh’s team acknowledged. He could have attended a party that he did not list. But his team will argue to the senators that the calendars provide no corroboration for her account of a small gathering at a house where he allegedly pinned her to a bed and tried to remove her clothing.
Just like the written testimony of 65 women whom he didn't try to rape.
The calendar pages from June, July and August 1982, which were examined by The New York Times, show that Judge Kavanaugh was out of town much of the summer at the beach or away with his parents. When he was at home, the calendars list his basketball games, movie outings, football workouts and college interviews. A few parties are mentioned but include names of friends other than those identified by Dr. Blasey.
Hey guys, do you still have calendars from 35 years ago? Do they have your movie outings on them?
[Ford] has said she believes [that party] was during the summer of 1982, and she remembers wearing a bathing suit with other clothing on top of it, suggesting the party might have taken place after a swim outing at a local country club.
Maybe Kavanaugh could make it even better if he'd produce calendars for '81 and '83 as well.
The calendar pages are one-month pages with each day in a small box. Unusual for a teenager, Judge Kavanaugh seemed to keep track of his days even during summer vacation. The pages show typical teenage activities from the era, including “beach week” after the end of the school year and nights at the theater to see “Grease II,” “Rocky III” and “Poltergeist” with friends.
Hihgly unusual to create and so unusual to keep as to beggar belief. Judge Kavanaugh knows one thing for sure: documentation tops memory in courts.
His friend, Mr. Judge, is mentioned, but the others from that night are not. “Go to Judge’s,” he wrote in July 28. A few parties are listed and with them the names of several friends he apparently went with.
Okay, that does it. Bullshit.

No, really, they need to ask to see his calendars for all years in 1980.

UPDATE 9/26: The calendar.

Whether it helps or hurts Kavanaugh is disputable.  (Not to mention, whether the entries were all made in 1982, and what the scribbled out entries are.)

Holy Child Party. Grounded three weekends?  Why?

Beach week.  Party.

Go to beach for weekend.  Anne Dougherty's party.  Richie Stanton's party.
And, there's a cover over some words on the 16th about where he went for the weekend before being copied.  The 18th says "come back from St. Michael's."  If that's all the 16th entry said, why cover it?

Where's August?  School's out in July and August.
