Yes, in the politics of 2018, people literally sent letters to the Judiciary Committee explaining why “Devil’s Triangle” is a drinking game in support of SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Following the judge’s powerful testimony last week proclaiming himself innocent of the 36-year-old sexual assault charges brought forth by Christine Blasey Ford, the Left shifted their attack on Kavanaugh’s honesty by asserting he lied under oath regarding certain phrases he used in his high school yearbook: “Boof” and “Devil’s Triangle” — the latter being a drinking game, the former being flatulence.
Even though the words “Boof” and “Devil’s Triangle” may very well have had an entirely different meaning to a bunch of D.C. suburban teens in the early-’80s, Kavanaugh’s critics said the “Devil’s Triangle” actually meant sex acts involving two guys and one girl and “Boof” referred to, well, something very NC-17.
“For its investigation to be comprehensive, the FBI must also get to the bottom of what ‘boofing’ means,” Politico went so far as to say.
Due to this warped conspiracy theorizing straight from the pages of a Dan Brown novel, former classmates of Kavanaugh actually sent letters to the Judiciary Committee explaining that “Devil’s Triangle” is indeed a drinking game.
“‘Devil’s Triangle’ was a drinking game we came up with in high school,” said one letter signed by four former classmates of Kavanaugh. “It was a variation on the game ‘Quarters.'”
The letter stated that they do not know where the name “Devil’s Triangle” originated from but they never meant it as a sex act.
“If the phrase ‘Devil’s Triangle’ had any sexual meaning in the early 1980’s, we did not know about it,” the letter concludes.
The second letter signed by two former classmates also confirmed that “Devil’s Triangle” was a drinking game.
And there was this:
Obviously, this will do nothing to persuade the Left.
