If people really were so certain that Kavanaugh is guilty, they wouldn’t constantly be dishonest about absolutely everything.
You have a lot of people who really really want him to be guilty, but people who honestly think he’s guilty? Not so many.
Did Kavanaugh sexually assault for 36 years ago? I don’t know. But most of the stuff you people are seizing onto is stupid nonsense and the reason you’re doing it because you’re bad people and dumb partisans.
Jennifer Rubin is the centrist Alex Jones.
So either it’s a gang rape ring or a one man getting his reputation smeared unlike we’ve ever witnessed before. One or the other.
Won’t it really hurt Ronan Farrow’s reputation if all he got was that vague recollection of pants maybe being pulled down but completely missed the gang rape ring?
It’s almost impossible to take this all seriously. It’s like a bunch of clowns emerging from a clown car to tell you you have cancer.
The saddest thing is seeing Trump and Avenatti snipe at each other when it really seems like they should be best friends.
What I least understand is that in Swetnick’s statement she seemed to say she went to multiple parties where she knew gang rapes were happening and just avoided the punch.
But maybe that’s just because I’m one of those introverts who would seize on any excuse to avoid a party.
If every time a Senator spoke, we just replaced their words with the sounds Charlie Brown’s teacher makes, we’d be no less informed.
Seasonal Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups — one shaped as Christmas trees, eggs, or pumpkins — are the best as they’re like a peanut butter cup that’s all middle.
If Kavanaugh is innocent, then this is an unbelievably awful thing that’s happened to him and his family.
Don’t try to shame someone for yelling at a Senator. They should all be yelled at constantly by everyone.
A lot of people are very certain about all this. They’re called sociopaths.
What is the mass of the entire universe and why that number?
I believe too much of the universe is hidden from us for us to even make a good estimate of the mass, but we’re pretty sure it’s not infinite. Which means it’s mass must be a specific number and there has to be a reason it’s that number and not another.
Man, you have to cut through a lot of journalism to understand what’s going on these days.
The left won’t rest until everyone who was on the fence in 2016 votes for Trump in 2020 just to spite them.
My favorite take is: “He can’t be impartial now that we’ve worked so hard to destroy him.”
The surprised reaction to Kavanaugh getting angry kept making me think of this.
My wife has ruled out “James” as a name for our new son because she knows that the first time he falls while learning to walk I’ll start calling him “Slippin’ Jimmy”.
What if all the Dems accomplished was to radicalize Kavanaugh before putting him on the court?
I think after that hearing we can all agree that putting 17yo Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court would have been a bad idea.
It’s not fair, but I wonder if part of it is more people can see themselves in Kavanaugh’s situation than Ford’s. I don’t think a lot of men know what being a victim of sexual assault is like, but everyone can imagine themselves being wrongly accused and their lives destroyed.
We’ve all seen the sociopathic partisan mobs that will just gleefully tear people apart, and we’re all scared of them because we know there is nothing you can do to ensure they won’t just turn on you. It’s pure evil and we all fear it now.
I don’t get people saying it’s a negative Kavanaugh yelled at Senators. I have a lot of trouble trusting anyone who treats politicians with reverence.
I wonder if the other accusations ended up helping Kavanaugh. We’re used to one accusation leading to others throughout the professional career, but the other accusations were all vague details of him as a teenager pretty much proving there wasn’t anything more.
A week long FBI investigation? Mulder and Scully never needed more than an hour.
“Mulder, we’re off the UFO case. We need to find evidence of sexual assault at an unknown place at an unknown date from 36 years ago.”
“Is the Cigarette Smoking Man behind this?”
“No. It’s much much dumber than that.”
The left seems sure Kavanaugh is as horrible as they are.
If the FBI finds that Kavanaugh has lied about anything, they can charge him with slerjury, which is a combination slander/perjury. I know what I’m talking about as I read the Wikipedia article on “laws”.
So while you’re all trying to prove that 17yo Kavanaugh was kind of a dick based on things written in his yearbook, there are still no allegations from his 30 years of professional life?
Isn’t Beto the privileged frat boy you all imagine Kavanaugh to be with even more evidence to back that up?
Eh, why am I pretending anyone actually cares about any of this and it isn’t all just partisan BS?
The lesson of this Kavanaugh stuff is the same as it’s always been: Everyone in government is horrible. Don’t trust any of them. Limit their power as much as possible.
I could see someone being up to “pretty certain” Kavanaugh is guilty, but the ones who act absolutely certain and are gleeful about tearing him apart don’t give a damn about Ford or sexual assault. They’re just partisan sociopaths.
Let’s not let all this Kavanaugh stuff distract from the fact the Supreme Court is stupid, illustrated by the fact that people are still going on about a stolen seat since when people randomly die is supposed to show who “owns” it.
I wonder if having terms for SCOTUS would make it less stupid? Seems like a band aid though rather than a real fix.
Remember when all that was going on with Kavanaugh was people lying about him calling birth-control “abortion inducing drugs”? Seems like such simpler times.
Finally checked out Deadwood which caused me to finally check out Justified. That latter show feels almost quaint, though; it feels like forever since I watched something that was episodic.
Only watched first season of Deadwood because that’s all they had on VidAngel. It’s a little much for relaxing watching it in the evening with your wife.
playing NES Pro Wrestling with my daughter
“Do they have a girl character to choose?”
“No. This was before they knew they’d get in trouble if they left that out.”
A winner was me, BTW, but it took three rounds.
I forgot that the NES version of Double Dragon was two player alternating. That is so so lame. I’m considering getting that Capcom bundle for Switch to show my kids some proper arcade beat ‘em ups.
Finally saw Solo. It was fun!
I saw Kathleen Kennedy got extended for three years. Don’t know what to think about that. Force Awakens was an absolute bullseye for a soft reboot—hard to imagine anything increasing Star Wars enthusiasm more.
Rogue One was a perfectly cromulent movie, which was kind of amazing hearing about the trouble behind the scenes.
The Last Jedi, well, some people liked that, but it felt to me like Rian Johnson took a big dump on what JJ Abrams was trying to do and killed all my enthusiasm for the story.
Following that, Solo kind of flopped—when it was as least as good as Rogue One. It ain’t looking good and JJ Abrams has to right the ship. How much of this falls on Kennedy? I dunno.
BTW, we need a Lando movie starring Donald Glover. He was a joy every time he was on screen. Can’t believe Glover hasn’t had a big movie hit yet.
The Solo movie was a lot of fun, and I correctly predicted the final line of it.
“Chewie, it’s time to go vest shopping.”
And at the end when SPOILERS Darth Maul appears and Duel of the Fates plays and Darth Maul ignites His double lightsaber for no reason, he should have said “By the way, I’m Darth Maul.”
So with the total focus on trying to prove 17yo Kavanaugh drank too much, am I to assume that Kavanaugh’s 30 years of professional life are completely unimpeachable?
What makes this all unseemly is it’s starting to feel like a teenager is on trial for not being up to the standards of a SCOTUS. And it’s like people have given up trying to prove Kavanaugh committed sexual assault so they’ll settle for implying it.
It’s really hypocritical for the Democrats to act all concerned about Kavanaugh’s teenage drinking when Ruth Bader Ginsburg regularly shows up drunk for oral argument and they’ve never said a word. Once she forgot her robe and wore a black trash bag.
Snopes will back me up on this.
So we’re watching TV, and my 5yo turns to me and says, “Socialism is just a regressive idea born of a fear of loss of control of things that never could be controlled.”
And I was like, “Shut up. I’m trying to watch DuckTales.”
If people don’t think the FBI is doing a good job of investigating Kavanaugh, they should hire a private eye like Veronica Mars or that male version of Veronica Mars, Sherlock Holmes.
My guess is Kavanaugh is innocent. When you look at his 30 years of professional life with no allegations, that seems to really outweigh Ford’s 36yo accusation lacking details and no corroboration by anyone else. But I’m no particularly good judge of character, so whatever.
Those acting 100% certain Kavanaugh is guilty are horrible horrible people, though. You are the worst. As however bad you imagine Kavanaugh is, that’s what you are.
You almost got him, guys. If the FBI can prove Kavanaugh threw ice, that should be it for him.
We’ll all have to stop reading Harry Potter soon—there’s a lot of fat-shaming of the Dursleys in it.
I’ve never heard the terms “boof” or “devil’s triangle” before, so it’s hard for me to not look at people who are absolutely certain of what those means as bunch of weirdos. FBI should check them out.
sprays a SCOTUS with a high-powered hose throughout the confirmation hearings
“Hmm. This guy is reacting much differently than other SCOTUS nominees. I wonder why that is?”
You could have a “Remember when…” type show that would just be Trump scandals from a few months ago.
“Remember when people pretended to be outraged that Trump called MS-13 gang members ‘animals’?”
Here’s me getting in a bar fight. If you put me on the Supreme Court, I will fight them all! I will fight the all and I will win!
I’ve never actually been in a bar fight. I’ve never even been in a bar argument. I’m delightful at bars!
Going to be fun with the next SCOTUS nominee where the new standard is do everything you can to destroy his life and then see if he gets snippy.
“So, Goldfinger, do you want me to talk?”
“No, Mr. Bond. I want you to die.”
turns on laser
“But I thought this was a job interview?!”
“Don’t get snippy with me! I knew you didn’t have the temperament for this!”
It really seems like they’ve given up on the sexual assault charge and are trying to convict teenage Kavanaugh of being kind of a dick. Are there any scandals about him that aren’t old enough to run for president?
This is all so bizarre and everyone is just crazy awful garbage people. A fair outcome might be Kavanaugh dropping out and most Senators and most people in the major news outlets resigning as well.
Trump attacking Ford is one of those scorpion and the frog sort of things.
ME: “That’s it, kids. You have five more minutes.”
SIRI (on my watch, completely unbidden): “Setting a timer for five minutes.”
ME: “Hm. Thanks for the assist, Siri.”
With the new WatchOS, you can activate Siri without any special voice command. It hasn’t always worked for me, but that was the first time I saw it go off accidentally.
