A few women were inside in various stages of relaxation. Feet dipped in tubs. Nails painted in pastel colors.
Above the bar itself, the television screens were full of tension. One showed Bill Cosby, hands shackled at the waist, not long after he was sentenced to three to 10 years for drugging and raping a woman. But before long, the news focused in on one story: whether the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would survive allegations that he drunkenly groped a year-old girl when he was a high school student more than 30 years ago.
Still, on this day, not quite 48 hours before Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was scheduled to testify in Washington, the talk in the salon was casual and directionless. The news was on mute. DeBlanco is in her late 40s. She has two sons, one 30, one A family member did it to her until she was 17, she told me.
But as for Ford?
As DeBlanco talked, I could see a woman two chairs away watching us intently. Leibman is 69, a retired teacher who worked in schools in the Bronx, upstate New York and here in suburban Charlotte. Something bad, if not worse. That I was a bad .
No one we know now is on the fence. Init was just acres of hunting preserve, covered in scrubby loblolly pines and oaks. It grew to be extremely popular—the schools were good, the land was cheap—and became an enclave of upper-middle-class homes, ballooning from a population of 9, in to more than 23, now.
The district has been held by a Republican sincebut the voting precinct in which Polished Nail Bar sits was almost perfectly split in election, with Trump winning by just four votes. This year, a Democrat named Dan McCready is considered a toss-up to win the open seat. Michael Bitzer, a professor of political science at nearby Catawba College. But, if those counties were, somehow, to start to swing more Democratic, it could be a of a coming blue wave.
The key in this, and other suburban areas, may be women. Places like, say, Ballantyne, where the Kavanaugh story has been closely watched. I talked to a dozen women here, asking for their thoughts about Kavanaugh and the accusations. Three of them brought up their own assaults, unprompted, while they tried to explain how they felt.
The story seems to be tapping a nerve among women nationwide. This week, the National Sexual Assault Hotlin e reported a 57 percent increase in calls. Earlier this week, before Ford had issued her emotional opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, before Kavanaugh had choked up defending himself, the battle Woman want real sex Harbinger North Carolina were drawn not by gender but by party lines. Above her, the flat-screen TVs flicked between political and the trial of Kevin Olsen, a former quarterback at UNC Charlotte and younger brother of a Carolina Panthers tight end who had been charged with raping his girlfriend.
Warlick, 21, was purposefully tuning out most of it. She just graduated from a medical assistant program and was looking for a job. But the one story that had broken through was the Kavanaugh nomination. It was a college setting. A guy she was seeing. But so far that experience had not morphed into animus toward Republicans. And she has no reason to regret her decision in to vote for Trump. I mean, I like him. On the other side of the shopping center from the nail salon, Deborah King was working on a waffle cone full of butter pecan ice cream.
Her 7- and year-old daughters were wildly playing in the outdoor food court in front of a Chipotle. King is a trust attorney who lives in Marvin, a few miles away. So for Mr. And, she said she thinks Trump is doing a great job. The argument stopped before it could pick up momentum. On Thursday afternoon, after nearly nine hours of occasional tearful testimony, pointed questioning and bitter recriminations between senators, I checked back with DeBlanco and Leibman. She fell asleep long before Kavanaugh testified. She still believes her. DeBlanco did, and it made her cry. She, too, is now more certain than ever before.
At one point Thursday, Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona sex crimes prosecutor brought in by Republicans to question the witnesses, asked Kavanaugh a series of questions about the definition of sexual assault. She referred to a manual whose definition included what Ford said she had experienced. Did you grind your genitals on Dr. Ford, Mitchell asked Kavanaugh. No, he said. That uncertainty did not seem to change the certainty of the women in Ballantyne, which, even after a painful and dramatic day of testimony, had not wavered an inch from where it was at the nail salon on Tuesday.
On that day, after two hours of talking politics, the manager asked me to leave. I thanked her and walked out, with the salon full of women, and the news still on mute.
