you're right

my misquote

2018-10-06 18:24:54 UTC  

It's the work of the very same Dem machine that produced the Steele dossier.

2018-10-06 18:25:37 UTC  

but the point is the same. Despite how right he is to be angry, the degree to which he became emotional was a little troubling

2018-10-06 18:26:00 UTC  

Revenge on behalf of the Clintons is clearly involved at some level, it's more a matter whether they were involved with manufacturing the claims or merely promoting them.

The voting is about to begin

2018-10-06 18:26:31 UTC  

Though naming outside parties does put him in a bit of a bind, because it means that he'll probably have to recuse in the future

2018-10-06 18:27:07 UTC  

well, that Kavanaugh is now surely biased against Democrats, is totally their fault.

2018-10-06 18:27:11 UTC  

Scoob, you're behaving like a smuggie at this point.

2018-10-06 18:27:19 UTC  

like a what

2018-10-06 18:28:26 UTC  

oh those things have a name

2018-10-06 18:29:07 UTC  

MSNBC ran a headline the other day along the lines of "Is Brett Kavanaugh too damaged from the nomination proceedings to make a competent jurist?"

2018-10-06 18:30:19 UTC  

Which raises a big question: is it permissible for the fact that somebody was damaged by being put under so much unfair pressure during a nomination proceeding to affect their eligibility for the seat they were nominated for?

2018-10-06 18:30:34 UTC  

pls @ me when it's about to happen, i'll be playing NieR

2018-10-06 18:30:56 UTC  

Supreme Court Justices are supposed to be the most well-tempered people in the entire country, not able to be emotionally manipulated or angered to the point Kavanaugh was. They are supposed to be level-headed and impartial, no matter how partisan something may be.

2018-10-06 18:31:20 UTC  

I'm NOT saying he's unfit to be a Supreme Court Justice

2018-10-06 18:31:29 UTC  

it presents a slippery slope where it seems it is possible to, if you have a sufficiently-loyal partisan base, take almost anyone out of the running by a cavalcade of mere allegations.

2018-10-06 18:31:29 UTC  

As credible as Blasey-Ford was, she needed evidence regardless. Ramirez shot herself in the foot by asking if it was him. Swetnick was a goof with an outlandish story. Kavanaugh shouldn’t have gone all Q-Anon and gone Clinton conspiracy theorist.

2018-10-06 18:31:32 UTC  

but he's not perfect

2018-10-06 18:31:41 UTC  

I don't like his decisions, and I think he has baggage.

2018-10-06 18:31:58 UTC  

@Inquisition is right

2018-10-06 18:32:04 UTC  

Speaking of dowg.

2018-10-06 18:32:14 UTC  

My puppy brought in the newspaper in this morning.

2018-10-06 18:32:20 UTC  

Most wholesome shit I've ever seen.

2018-10-06 18:33:06 UTC  

But honestly, his predecessor was not much different

2018-10-06 18:33:31 UTC  

so if we need a somewhat unfair neocon justice to balance a somewhat unfair neolib justice

2018-10-06 18:33:36 UTC  

then it is not the most insane thing.

2018-10-06 18:33:42 UTC  


2018-10-06 18:33:49 UTC  

Fuck all you people not acknowledgin' my dowg

2018-10-06 18:33:58 UTC  

A plague on your bloodlines

2018-10-06 18:34:01 UTC  

now, it would be nice to have a court of nine fair justices

2018-10-06 18:34:15 UTC  

but if wishes were horses, I know what we'd be having for dinner.

2018-10-06 18:34:35 UTC  

I was waiting for you to post a picture or something @Scribblehatch

2018-10-06 18:35:03 UTC  

@Scribblehatch Don't you feel blessed?

2018-10-06 18:35:13 UTC  

;- )

2018-10-06 18:36:15 UTC  

Somebody find me eight more people with anywhere near the integrity of Neil Gorsuch, and I will gladly support their nominations.

2018-10-06 18:37:20 UTC  

Good luck with that. SCOTUS isn't going to be fixed until long after the legislature is fixed, which is probably not going to happen ever.

2018-10-06 18:37:28 UTC  

Tim should livestream the senate and make some comments 😃
