Default “Brett Kavanaugh looks like some other guy!”

I have no idea who this “Ed Whelan” is (I followed a tweet from David Futrelle) or exactly what to make of these tweets, other than “it’s an attempt to distract from a very real rape accusation”.

I like how he's got "floor plans" of this "house" even though no one has said where this actually took place...

It's all speculations, coated in a thick goo of supposed "expert" opinion...

Ed Whelan has since deleted it and vaguely apologized. He said he posted it in haste or some such. Yeah, all that research on Zillow and Google streetview was done in haste

Curious that the guy being accused in this idiocy is one of the guys that signed a letter supporting Kavanaugh. Maybe he didn't appreciate being thrown under the bus.

OK, since the stupid thread is now gone, here’s a news story about it: https://mashable.com/article/ed-whel.../#lMx1yC7YpaqU

To sum up: Whelan put forth that Kavanaugh may not have been the rapist, because the party wouldn’t have occurred at his house. Instead, he found a much closer house that just happened to be owned by the parents of a guy that kinda looked like Kavanaugh if you put them both through a sepia tint. -Also, he posted the floor plans of that house, claiming they matched up with Dr Ford’s memories. That man, who was their classmate, is now a middle school teacher (and still looks like Kavanaugh if you squint). Dr Ford, however, insists that she knew both men and could tell them apart.

He looks like Kavanagh if you squint and you wear Orrin Hatch's magic glasses...

Makes perfect sense. All those white guys look alike, so lets just assume this woman who knew the guy was wrong, since hey, women are sort of crazy and unstable. Maybe it was that time of month or something, right?
