America watched three searing versions of reality television this week.Blasey Ford was a startlingly powerful witness before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday, in part because she had been unknown to most Americans before the cameras started rolling.Ford seemed in some ways a modern American "Everywoman," voicing publicly the often-hidden trauma that millions of women have experienced. Sometimes, when Kavanaugh spoke about the possibility that he might never teach or coach basketball again, he seemed to feel his life had been undone by the accusations from Ford and two other women.What Kavanaugh couldn't do, even in his poignant denials, was to erase the impression that Ford's testimony had left.This was a very different self-portrait from the quietly anxious Ford, or the indignant Kavanaugh. In his 75-minute news conference from the United Nations in New York Wednesday night, Trump was rambling, evasive, boastful, contemptuous.America is living under a volcano. Thursday's competing testimonies from Ford and Kavanaugh will probably make a polarized nation even more divided.
