And now we go back 36 years to unleash that sea-wide net of alleged “sexual misconduct” against then-17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh, the net being anchored by the New Yorker magazine and keeled by top Democrat Dianne Feinstein, who received her seaman’s skills from former top Democrat Harry Reid.

As may be remembered, Captain Reid is best known for landing his biggest catches in 2013 using his new “nuclear option” rod and reel, allowing his hired fisherman, Barack Obama, to reel in three prized fish to be placed in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. And even better luck, his next cast allowed Obama to reel in that wily health care law.

As fisherman Obama said about other fishermen who didn’t approve of Reid’s “nuclear option” new rod and reel — they were using “reckless and relentless tools” and were just using “patterns of obstruction” to prevent him from real good fishing.

Feinstein and her crew should get off the dock. Long ago, they caught their limit.
