As I’ve mentioned, my favorite part of this whole whoop-tee-doo has been the idea that Doctor Professor Blasey Ford is, due to her fear of flying that prevented her from testifying on Monday, somewhere out there in middle America roaring down a highway with her pedal to the metal to get to Capitol Hill by tomorrow. Air travel is sterile and respectable, while cross-country road trips are the essence of Americana. The only thing more American than driving across the country is riding a raft down the Mississippi.
But now, the Daily Caller explains, it turns out …

Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford took a polygraph test in Maryland, far from her home in California, despite her alleged fear of flying.
Documents released Wednesday show that the polygraph test was administered to Ford on Aug. 7 at the Hilton Hotel in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, not far from the Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
This could be another one of my false memories, but I think I’ve stayed at that hotel. It’s right next to the Baltimore airport. I don’t think too many people stay there who don’t fly in. Maybe she drove all the way across the country and at the last moment wound up in an airport hotel because Priceline was offering a good price. But, more likely, she flew.
Dr. Prof. Blasey Ford’s July 30 letter to Sen. Feinstein said she would be on vacation in the Mid-Atlantic through August 7 (when she took the polygraph test) and would be available back in California from August 10. Perhaps she Cannonball Runned from DC to Palo Alto on August 8-9?
I like to think so.
