Well if there's anything we know about male coaches or doctors of young girl teams is that they never molest anyone. Also owners of teen pageants never randomly burst into the changing area to see what's going on.

Not even fucking close. Every word of Thomas' "high-tech lynching" speech dripped with righteous indignation, but there was no whining/hysteria/shrieking.

Kavanaugh: Yeah, we drank beer. Me and my friends, boys and girls. We drank beer. I liked beer. I still like beer. Sometimes we drank too much beer. I liked beer. We liked beer. We drank beer.

Mitchell: How much beer is too much?

Kavanaugh: I dunno. Whatever the chart says.

Nailed it in one sentence, from what I can tell. Rebecca Traister’s new book seems to be quite well timed and I may have to read it.

(via LGM)

Whether or not he gets confirmed, I think at least the time leading up to the midterm elections will be even tougher for all of us than the last couple of years have been.

…also, this:




At this point, as a person who at least passes as a white cisgender male, I think I’d be OK with enforcing a moratorium against having white cis men in positions of governmental authority for awhile going forward. It wouldn’t actually be able to happen under the terms of the Constitution, of course, but it would improve things immeasurably if it did.

…also, too:



and of course I now have to post this classic Carlin routine

This must have been a trying day for that nice Mr. Kavanaugh. I expect that afterward he went home, stripped off his shirt and tie and put on his sexy jacket and translucent robe. Then he sat down to the best damned spaghetti and meatballs dinner ever, courtesy of his wife, who was compelled of her own free will to undertake a special study of cooking.

For post-prandial recreation, I expect that the dear man had congressional relations his wife (with or without her consent) on the dinner table, provided no little ones were present. The man’s utter devotion to the tender sensibilities of the little ones, like the not-raped girls on his basketball team, is mighty white of him.

Fun rant thrad

Richard Lather on Twitter: "only a tiny percentage of lawyers get anywhere near the supreme court in their careers and they are virtually all hand-picked beneficiaries of self-reinforcing, self-appointed set of privileged snobs ensconced in sinecures at a handful of self-designated elite institutions"

There's this weird thing in man game dynamics in this here country, where if you can make the other guy look whiny and snivelly, you win, regardless of who is or is not the just or the injured party. Basically, the complainy guy loses. I'm hoping that dynamic emerges and BK is so damaged they abandon him.

Seriously, if this (now) explicitly partisan candidate gets the seat, I'm officially, absolutely and irrevocably cynical about politics. Well maybe not irrevocably, but not without some drastic, drastic changes from the way things are going now.

Seems relevant that the calendar Kavanaugh presented as exonerating actually mentions a gathering that sounds exactly like the one Ford described: Kavanaugh is pressed on the key July 1 entry in his calendar. But only to a point. - The Washington Post

A gathering for "skis" in July. While I'm sure Kavanaugh might try to tell us it was about skiing, we're not fucking idiots and it means "brewskis", i.e. beer. At the gathering? Mark Judge, PJ Smyth (two people mentioned by Ford) and "Squi", aka Chris Garrett, who Ford testified she had been casually dating that summer. Date is a month before a time period that Mark Judge's book says he would've been working at a local grocery store (August 1982)... which is where Ford said she saw him 6 to 8 weeks later.

Now how could Ford have known that Kavanaugh would have a date on his calendar (or even that he still had a 1982 calendar) with a gathering indicating alcohol, Judge and PJ in the two week time frame she would need?

It's Kavanaugh's position that basically he never knew her and no such party occurred. Yet he presented this calendar himself, corroborating her account of the basic outline of the party, who was there and when it occurred!

Unfortunately, the Democrats didn't ask any questions about this specific entry, possibly because they didn't see this piece during the hearing...

The Jesuit thing was more symbolic, but this could actually be big:

American Bar Association tells Senate: Delay Kavanaugh until FBI investigates assault allegations - CNNPolitics

McConnell won't care, but some other senators might. At this point, I'll take any legitimate help we can get.

I thought there was at least a chance Kavanaugh could present some truly exonerating evidence, but it seems to me to be clear that he has none. Given in particular that "skis at Timmy's" entry, I'm now even more convinced that Kavanaugh did it.

I will say that there's still, perhaps, some ambiguity about what Kavanaugh remembers. After all, he was a sloppy blackout drunk. He might not remember the event (but I wouldn't say that's guaranteed). But I do know Kavanaugh is a lying liar and he's lying when he says he knows it didn't happen. He may be lying about not remembering her or that party, he may not be. But he's lying for sure when he says he never got wasted.

And even if he doesn't remember the party at all because he got so wasted, it's also quite likely he remembers stepping over the line with other women. It's unlikely that he only ever did this to Ford or Ramirez when he was completely blacked out and has no recollection of ever doing anything like these stories. Acting indignant like he'd never ever behave that way... I'm not buying it.

When the Democrats have the House (and hopefully Senate), they need to carry out a proper investigation of Kavanaugh. Regardless of the outcome of his confirmation vote.

Bloomberg on the reactions to Dr. Ford's testimony from Fox News

From the linkThe reviews are coming in for Christine Blasey Ford’s Senate testimony on Donald Trump’s favorite network, Fox News -- and they aren’t good for the Republican Party.

Fox News panelists discussing Ford’s testimony during a break in the Senate hearing called her credible, and one -- anchor Chris Wallace -- said her recounting of an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was “a disaster” for the GOP. Kavanaugh denies the allegations. “I think Dr. Ford is exceptionally credible,” Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said.

They're still going to ram him through this morning it seems.

Flake has already confirmed he will vote yes and I don't expect any other GOP wankers to do anything different.

How anyone could watch that whiny, pissy, man-baby yesterday and still want him on the Supreme Court is just shameful.

But of course, the GOP has no shame. None. At. All.

No.

He would have to be impeached to be removed from the court, but Article III judges can certainly be indicted.
