"We're sexual misconduct law experts"
Whoo, boy.
Where to start with such nonsense?
How about the Constitution?

Based on your strong recommendation, Red, I read the article Josh posted. It makes a good case for tossing out the whole GOP arm of the Senate for pure blockheaded incompetence which is their strong suit.

I found the following passage especially on point,

Quote
The committee has every resource imaginable to design a meaningful investigative process that furthers Congress’s stated intent to prevent sexual misconduct. They have simply made a calculated decision not to do so and, instead, insist on an investigative process that cannot reasonably uncover the truth.

Surprised Josh didn't put this one up.


All along, York’s teachings grew stranger and stranger. He adopted the name “Chief Black Thunderbird Eagle” and announced he was the leader of a lost Native American tribe that fought early European colonization. He then declared that he was an extraterrestrial from the planet Rizq.

A pseudo religious cult led by a charismatic psychotic...

“I declare I’ve never heard of such a thing...” (clutches pearls)

Excusing racists?

Sad.

Kavanaugh is a United States first. The first Supreme Court nominee to have more Americans wanting him withdrawn or defeated than Want to see him seated.

If a Justice is imprisoned onstate charges, can he vote in cases before the Court? Is that something they’ll have to do through work release?

What?

Whoever heard of such a thing?

How about listing some of the superstars, like David Koresh, Jim Jones and Charlie Manson?

You know that guy, Michael the Blackman who goes to all the Trump rallies? The guy who holds up the Blacks For Trump sign? He used to be a member of a Miami based murder cult in the 90s.

Ever hear of these guys?

Yale Law alumni respond to the Kavanaugh nomination, the Yale Law initial response to the nomination, and more.

They have no doubt that Kavanaugh will overturn Roe v Wade, based on both specific prior decisions and Trump's stated intention or even vow to appoint to SCOTUS justices that would do exactly that.

It’s time to file ethics charges against Chuck Grassley. They can be resolved when the Democrats hold both houses of Congress this coming January.

 To Red, Kid, and others in the cracker contingent,

This is what your wives, daughters, and other women in your lives think whether they respect you enough to share their points of view with you or not,

Usual Republican Hypocrisy:

The same people who went after a credible victim of sexual assault for defaming Kavanaugh accuse A middle school teacher, with no evidence, of committing sexual assault in order to defend Kavanaugh.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/ed-whelan-judge-kavanaughs-defender-definitely-just-committed-defamation

Astonishingly, Whelan also tweeted the name, former address, photographs, and Facebook posts of this individual, who is a private citizen. Immediately, condemnations rained down on the once-lionized activist (a former clerk to Justice Scalia and head of the right-wing Ethics and Public Policy Center) from all quarters: conservative and liberal, public and private. Immediately, some wondered whether his tweets constitute defamation.

From Trump down the people running this show are bad people, who will lie and hurt whoever they need to in order to get what they want, however opposed their aims are to the will of the American people.

They are the worst this country has to offer. And they are in charge. For now

And yes, I’d say participating in said defamation would be disqualifying for a position on the Supreme Court.

Props to Morning Joe Show today for reporting on the Ford/Kavanaugh issue right down the middle.

"I cannot go to a place where I call (Ford) 100% telling the truth without also leaving room for the possiblity that she is not."

- Susan del Percio

Same analyst hits the Republican Party for having to go OUTSIDE their ranks to find a woman to question  Ms Ford.

There are still the whackjobs like Donnie Dueutsch - and there is Mika, who only cites polling when it sways her way - but the show is quite good in its current state.

Times are pretty good and getting better.
Unemployment is down, wages are up, the stock markets are running withe bulls and the tax cuts are pretty much paying for themselves.

Liken it to Clinton/Gore - which almost came to pass...

Thinking by 2024 they should run Chelsea.
