Radical Centrism has NO WEAKNESS

Anything it debates WILL LOSE

Judge Kavanaugh's mention of particular parties as being categorically hostile to him, however warranted, shows that he has baggage.

2018-10-06 19:15:32 UTC  

I took the JBP comment as saying Kavanaugh should make his resignation a public statement. Kind of like "A pox on both your houses. I quit."

2018-10-06 19:15:48 UTC  

I did not take it that way.

2018-10-06 19:15:54 UTC  

What gave you that impression?

2018-10-06 19:16:06 UTC  

Which is still dumb, but makes sense if JBP is trying to take some high principled stance.

2018-10-06 19:16:11 UTC  

(other than the fact that the statement, at face value, does not square with what he usually says)

2018-10-06 19:16:12 UTC  

I'm gonna call the vote 51-49

2018-10-06 19:16:32 UTC  

right down party lines with 1 or 2 outsiders

2018-10-06 19:16:44 UTC  

Daines is absent.

2018-10-06 19:16:59 UTC  

And Murkowski said she's voting 'present'.

2018-10-06 19:17:09 UTC  

i'm gonna call it 51-48-1

With that one vote suggesting Styxhexenhammer as Supreme court judge

2018-10-06 19:17:22 UTC  

IF she does what she says, and IF Flake doesn't Flake, it'll be 50-48-1

2018-10-06 19:17:39 UTC  

Pence only gets a vote if it's a tie.

2018-10-06 19:25:10 UTC  


2018-10-06 19:25:48 UTC  

Quorum dispensed with.

2018-10-06 19:28:43 UTC  

Why are they always bringing up Trump

2018-10-06 19:29:53 UTC  

That's their platform.

"lolol doesn't belong on the bench because chosen by the president" — Chuk Shoomur

2018-10-06 19:30:46 UTC  

"far-right organizations"

2018-10-06 19:31:01 UTC  

i.e., the republican party

2018-10-06 19:31:12 UTC  

i.e., half the country

2018-10-06 19:31:18 UTC  

> ignominiously

2018-10-06 19:31:58 UTC  

So after the votes are cast, somebody needs to give me a quick rundown on the Kavanaugh "don't investigate the president" rhetoric

2018-10-06 19:32:30 UTC  

Isn't it incredible.

2018-10-06 19:32:40 UTC  

That Lincoln got more votes out of the democrats for getting rid of slavery.

2018-10-06 19:33:28 UTC  


2018-10-06 19:33:35 UTC  

Don't act confused.

2018-10-06 19:33:37 UTC  

Don't argue.

2018-10-06 19:33:37 UTC  

I think everyone in my dorm is also watching this at the same time

2018-10-06 19:33:40 UTC  

Just say "Yes"

2018-10-06 19:33:46 UTC  

so from what schumer is saying the democrats are painting themselves into a corner.

2018-10-06 19:33:48 UTC  

Ugh... the SCOTUS is not there to protect anyone. It's there to uphold the US Constitution.

2018-10-06 19:33:52 UTC  

because this is nearly unwatchable

2018-10-06 19:33:57 UTC  

they now have to impeach kavanaugh (assuming he's confirmed)

2018-10-06 19:34:10 UTC  

and if that happens shit will hit the fan
