  2. Mr.Vito says:

    More shoddy reporting today I see.

  3. Todd McCain says:

    We just live in a time where the rush to be first outweighs the accuracy of the reporting.

  4. janz says:

    I continue to be surprised that Gillum, a virtual unknown candidate with whiffs of scandal behind him and tied to the extreme social democrat agenda, is managing to stay ahead of DeSantis

    Then there is this American Thinker article pointing out perjury hedges seen in the actions of Ford, who started the deceitful, dishonest ball rolling to dismember Kavanaugh’s character and reputation. It is even implied that Ford was a frequent traveler to Hawaii, which contradicts her ploy to stall these hearings by alleging she was fearful of flying.

  5. lisab says:

    feinstein now also calling for postponement of thursdays hearing, until fbi can investigate new allegations

  6. Todd McCain says:

    Feinstein played this well; gotta give her that. If Kav ever gets on the court, he will exact his revenge.

  7. lisab says:

    feinstein now also claims that kavanaugh will be biased against democrats because of the current situation

    and therefore cannot be placed on the court

    Sorry Di. Payback is …..

  9. NYCmike says:

    “What the New Yorker has done to Kavanaugh with their bogus story is nothing but yellow journalism. It’s shameful.”

    -And then Robbie, in the next sentence, would advise Republicans to dump him.

    What a weak creep!

    Robbie,

    Read that letter, then roll it up, and have someone slide it down your back to reinforce your spine!

  12. Chicon says:

    Tough one for Robbie. He hates Trump and wants to see him embarrassed. On the other hand, the Judge served in the Bush Administration…..

    Watching the Republicans handle this is instructive. The spineless wimps running things are one reason the electorate – especially Republicans and indies – hired Trump.

  13. Chicon says:

    11 – good to see.

  14. NYCmike says:

    Chicon,

    I don’t have a YUGE problem with how Grassley and them have handled it.

    They had to deal with flakes like Flake, Murk, Corker, Collins – so they had to slow walk it a bit.

    “CG” did have a good take on it, I’ll give him that.

    Patience has allowed the story to be the Democrats and the accusers stories going up in flames.

    NOW, with Kavanaugh ready to fight, the game has turned back in our favor, even if the woman dares to testify on Thursday. Seeing that DiFi is trying to delay again, leads me to believe that won’t happen.

  15. GPO says:

    another story will drop- its a race to Thursday- if it gets to that day she will not testify and he gets confirmed

  16. Todd McCain says:

    #CreepyPornLawyer;

  17. NYCmike says:

    They can drop all the stories they want – they are all b*llsh*t.

    The Democrats don’t care one iota about female victims of sexual assault. They will end up hurting other women who have remained silent out of fear, depression, embarrassment.

    Next to Democrats, Trump is like a Good Samaritan.

  18. GPO says:

    I would have vote for “Against Hillary” but you could only find that on the ballot in those fancy voting machines they have in the wealthy suburbs of Philly where Bitter lives. Here in the backwaters of York Co, where they still use papyrus ballots, it wasn’t an option. Of course, it is still better than where Walt votes, I hear they use colored pebbles.

  22. jason says:

    Would have vote?

    I blame it on those one room schools in the Andes.

    If Flake votes NO, that is fine. Pence pulls it over the top. You don’t have to get the committee blessing to get a full vote.

    26. And everyone was all gloom and doom over two polls just yesterday.

    Latest Trump approval polls:

    49% Rasmussen
    46% Fox News
    44% NBC News
    40% Gallup

    About 45% percent average. What happened to concerned trolls claim Trump’s popularity had fallen into the mid-30% range?

    Folks, it seems they still do not have a deal. The accuser still wants more conditions.

  34. Phil says:

    Easy prediction.

    With Kavanaugh coming out today and flat out saying he is for sure testifying Thursday, Democrats have now failed to intimidate Judge Kavanaugh into withdrawing. That was their game up until now. Ford won’t testify Thursday citing some accuse like she “doesn’t feel safe” or some such BS. Democrats will now launch another bogus accuser before Thursday to get Kavanaugh to withdraw. It’s there only move now and it is obviously predictable. The only question is how they choose to time it. My guess is tomorrow probably tomorrow night.

  35. Todd McCain says:

    Guys, the wanted him to withdraw so the red state dems didn’t have to vote. McConnell says either way there is going to be a vote.

  36. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    So the newly ordained leader of the opposition to Kavanaugh is an attorney who represents porn stars. There are a lot of people who believe pornography film makers and those affiliated with them commit a form of abuse.

    Like others, suspect Ford does not want to testify, and the Democrats are doing everything possible to try and prevent it.

  37. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    I like the way Kavanaugh is going on the offensive. Was originally lukewarm on his nomination, but now he is coming across as tough as nails. It will be quite a contrast to Ford, who is in hiding and not doing any interviews.

    These ain’t the wimpy Republicans of the Obama years.

  38. Todd McCain says:

    Kav is gonna put his revenge on the court. He should HATE the dems.

    Also, let’s hope that Goober Graham can persuade those wobblers.

    Finally, keep calling those R senators on the “judiciary” committee.

  41. Tina says:

    She likely fails to appear. Will make some bs story up that she cannot drive there, she is scared, Graslsley changed the terms.

    All Grassley said was Thursday is fine and we set the rest.

  42. Hugh says:

    She’s not showing up is my best guess unless Grassley caves on all their demands. I think today’s hit job gave him more leverage with the gop senators.

  43. Phil says:

    McConnell’s statement on the floor of the senate just now was good to see. The red state Democrats will have to show their colors. No withdrawal of the nominee. They get no cover. Voters in their red states get to see where they come down before November. Same with the timid Republican four. No cover. They will have to cast an actual vote. Frankly, I am confident in The two chicks and even Corker. Not The Flake but with the others we don’t need him.

  44. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    My hunch is McConnell is the actual one calling the shots, in consultation with Collins, Murkowski and Flake.

    Trump showing remarkable restrain. Imagine after Thursday he will have a lot to say.

    Megan McArdle and Mathew Continetti bring up an interesting point. https://twitter.com/asymmetricinfo/status/1044234367093133312
    In theory, second accusers were thought to be immediately and totally fatal. However, with the way Democrats have run this process (lies, smears, extreme unfairness, obvious bad faith), they’re only getting 90% of Republicans to rally behind Kavanaugh even further.
    In many ways though, this was actually very smart of Democrats. Because not 100% of Republicans will. There will probably still be enough Quisling Republicans to take down Kavanaugh, which means that as a result of extremely obstinate and low-road Democratic tactics, the conservative base will only be MORE outraged when the Republican Party folds. This is a far worse outcome for the GOP than if the nomination simply totally collapsed and the GOP ran away screaming (to another conservative nominee who would have time to nominated). The fact that Brett Kavanaugh is certainly innocent has proven to be bad for the GOP – if he were an actual rapist, the GOP could totally throw him away like we did to Roy Moore. Instead, we’re going to drag this out until the nomination fails in October/November.
    The Democrats have more or less run this process perfectly, while the GOP can’t be thought of an independently functioning actor (just dancing to Democrat strings as Democrats tighten the noose). I guess pretty representative of how US politics works.

    Republican favorability 45
    Democrat favorability 44

    I’m still waiting for the Party ID numbers from September to pop up.

    From May to August they averaged 45-42.5 D-R

    ……………………

    “Only one other time in the last decade has the Republican Party had a significantly higher score than the Democratic Party. That one exception came in November 2014, immediately after elections that saw Republicans capture control of the Senate and expand their majority in the House, when 42% rated the GOP favorably and 36% the Democrats.”

  62. Phil says:

    So, looks like stormy’s attorney really overplayed his over the top “rape trains” BS. The lefty media is really distancing themselves from that one. It’s soooo outrageous they recognize what it is doing to the left’s credibility.

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh, during a soon-to-be widely-watched television interview, just admitted to being a virgin throughout high school and college. I know of no man who would ever want to admit that in public. Most would not unless it was a “I have no damn choice” moment.

    I’d rather admit I did it!

    I dunno if I want a guy who couldn’t get laid in a women’s prison with a fistful of pardons on the Supreme Court!

  68. Wes says:

    That pretty much negates the idea Kavanaugh is some kind of predator/rapist.

  69. Tina says:

    It may be a rebuttal to Avenati, who will bring forth a woman in 48 hours regarding the gang rapes.

  70. Wes says:

  71. BayernFan says:

    -Robbie, the rock-ribbed “conservative” Roman Catholic, would allow this man to be the victim of this smear campaign.

  75. BayernFan says:

    He’s doing better now

  76. Hugh says:

    Sounds convincing to me. He would not claim to be a virgin if it’s not true. I agree that if what was claimed by rameriz happened it would have been talked about all over at a school like Yale.

  77. Wes says:

    It’s sad when Supreme Court nominations devolve into discussions of the nominee’s sexual history because of slanderous accusations.

    He’s like Felix Unger– chicks dig that!

  81. Paul says:

    From Mark Judge’s book and Kavanaugh’s yearbook entry, it is clear a fair amount of partying and drinking happened. And one can be a virgin and drunkenly try to have sex with someone.

  82. Hugh says:

    Paul are you a dude? If you are going to be the kind of guy Who gets drunk and gropes someone you are going to be the kind a guy who gets drunk and had sex with someone. A guy with his talent and intelligence at Yale could get laid all he wanted.

  83. Paul says:

    If he’d stop thrusting his penis in faces, he probably could’ve gotten laid sooner.

  84. Wes says:

    That’s really reaching, Paul. Then again you did claim Kavanaugh used a phrase from a fictional fraternity in the Law and Order franchise.

  85. Wes says:

    Paul is the perfect embodiment of the limitless sleaze the Left will go to to not only stop a nominee from being confirmed but try to destroy the man in the process.

    “with his talent & intelligence”?

    er, apples & oranges there, in my recollection! A red GTO convertible might have helped.

  89. Wes says:

    Ted Kennedy served in the Senate for 46 years despite drowning a woman he planned to screw and trying to rape a waitress on top of Chris Dodd.

    Now the Dems are trying to tear a man down on unfounded accusations far less serious than what Kennedy actually did.

    Hypocritical bastards.

  90. Paul says:

    I do think this whole thing is fizzling for the Dems. Avenatti may be to late for the party.

  91. mnw says:

    A guy who hung on to his calendar for 36 years probably WAS a virgin ’till he was 35.

  92. Phil says:

    Avenatti won’t be a plus for the Democrats. I can tell you that right now. Kavanaugh helped get girls drunk so guys could run rape trains on her? Good luck with that one.

  93. NYCmike says:

    Yo….

    I will never forget the great defense of Bill Clinton, that included Leahy and Feinstien — “It was just oral sex.” These people are the biggest hypocrites on the face of the earth. Isn’t it enough to hear that Ford’s lawyer tried to defend Al Franken — when there were pictures.

    I am becoming more and more convinced that, especially after seeing the conviction in the Judge’s face, the fire in it, she is not going to testify. It is only Monday. Mark my words something will happen on Wednesday where these snakes will claim that it will be unfair and she won’t come.

In fact I believe all the little Democratic staff are finding the person that Brett scored with when he was sixteen. I bet my bottom dollar that some person is going to come forward and claim that his favorite mello song was “Tonight’s the night” by Rod Stewart and of course his favorite party song was “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by the one and only Meatloaf.

    LOS ANGELES – A third woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct will come forward in the next 48 hours, according to Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film star and alleged President Donald Trump mistress Stormy Daniels.

    Following a Monday hearing over Daniels’ lawsuit against Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen over a hush-money deal, Avenatti told reporters he has been hired by a former employee of both the State Department and the U.S. Mint who has information of a sexual nature about Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge.

    “It will relate to how they behaved at countless house parties,’’ Avenatti said.

    Avenatti also told reporters the woman, whom he did not name, has multiple security clearances and will “literally risk her life’’ by coming forward. He called her “100 percent credible,’’ saying she has multiple witnesses to corroborate her story and would be willing to take a polygraph if Kavanaugh does as well.

    –He could have been much older or much younger than Kavanaugh…
    –as he ran away, he said his name was ‘Rhett’…but ‘Rhett’ sounds a lot like ‘Brett’

    AND she NOW SUDDENLY remembers she THINKS that he had initials on his hooded cape of “BK”!

    So it had to be Brett Kavanaugh…..!

    SO OBVIOUSLY THE BOOBIE GROPER WAS BRENT KAVANAUGH!

    – Yes. Still, they had multiple chances to cancel the hearing last week, but continued to extend the deadline. And because Grassley, probably at the prodding of other members, continued to negotiate, it allowed these other liars to come out from under their rocks.

    Jimmy Kimmel Suggests Cutting Brett Kavanaugh’s Penis Off If He’s Confirmed

  179. lisab says:

    (CNN)A mystery super PAC that spent nearly $2 million meddling in the Arizona Republican Senate primary was revealed to be funded by Democrats after the group’s August Federal Election Commission report was published last weekend.

    That super PAC, blandly titled “Red and Gold,” was able to conceal its donors — and thus its links to national Democrats — and avoid disclosure until after the election with a tactic increasingly used by other Democratic super PACs this cycle.

  180. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    This NYT article should help McSally(R) a bit in her AZ Senate race. It deals with resume enhancement by her opponent, Sinema(D).

    “Krysten Sinema (D) may have pulled a Julia Salazar and “exaggerated” her hardscrabble background. Turns out billing records show her parents regularly paid their utility bills which means contrary to her claims Sinema grew up with electric light in her home and the “abandoned” gas station she lived in was actually owned by her family as it belong to her grandparents.” (H/T: RRH)

  182. Test says:

    What?

  183. DW says:

    I doubt Ford will actually testify. This has always been about (in no particular order):

    1. Delaying past the mid-term election to see if Dems can capture the senate and scuttle the nomination forever.

    2. Seeing if by some lucky chance a credible accuser can be drawn out via ‘METOO’

    3. Seeing if they can cast this whole thing in a way to make Kavanaugh look guilty and the GOP leadership like they are covering it up to whip up the leftist vote and women’s vote for fall elections.

  184. Todd McCain says:

    And here comes the #CreepyPornLawyer like clockwork; I think Kav will be confirmed, but again shows us why the delay was a stupid move by Grassley — it allowed them to dig other people up and that was the point.

  185. Hugh says:

    Lesson learned for the future when Ginsburg is replaced. I can just imagine the chit show the creepy porn lawyer is planning

  186. DW says:

    “The GOP’s Least-Worst Option Is If Kavanaugh Withdraws — And Soon” – Nate Silver.

    Of course he roots for that, he wants to see the discouraged GOP base not show up for the election this fall. And look at the precedent set. All it takes is a flimsy accusation to ruin anyone.

  187. GPO says:

    I disagree with dumb move by Grasslwy, ccouldnt be seen as unsympathetic to Ford and by all accounts had people that wouldn’t move forward without getting to where we are now. With everything going on I am most encouraged by Collins statement yesterday that she is almost there

  188. dblaikie says:

    I believe the crucial day is not Thursday but tomorrow because I don’t believe she is going to testify. Of course, unlike the MD of old, I am not all seeing, and I could be wrong. But I don’t think I am. If I am right then the frenzy to have some GOP moderate come out and declare against Kavanaugh is going to be intense.

    However, the real fight will be in the Democratic caucus. If the Senate GOP is seen going to the mat for the Judge they will survive — especially if Corker or Flake who are lame ducks with Trump hatred are the no votes. But if there is a vote it will flush out these red state Democrats. Joe may be slightly ahead now with a weak opponent, but if he votes no he will probably lose. He will prove to his folks in West Virginia that he is not independent. The same holds true with Hedi and all the rest.

    Now as far Collins goes she is not a lame duck. Same with Lisa. They are not stupid. If they vote no it guarantees them a rough primary when they are up for reelection. Mark my words GOP voters will not forget this if they vote no.

    All these middle of road moderates want to hide in the grey areas of politics. Yesterday that grey area died!! If there is a vote there is no place to hide. BRING ON THE VOTE AND LETS LET THE FOLKS KNOW BACK HOME WHERE ALL THESE PEOPLE STAND!

  189. Todd McCain says:

    Yes, there should be a vote either way; make the red state dems hold their feet to the fire.

The rallies appear to be growing in attendance as well…close to 2016 levels. That Gallup poll yesterday is a great sign there will be no blue wave. I think we gain a few seats in the senate and the house will be close but a thunk we pull a small majority.

  211. Hugh says:

    Got it. However I don’t think it holds water based on what we know now. I see zero republican no votes. Collins is the biggest risk and she showed her hand yesterday. Again that assumes nothing new that is material. I think the republicans are sick of the games and threats.

  212. mnw says:

  218. dblaikie says:

    Would not read much into what McConnell said. “We will confirm Kavanaugh” was to a partisan gathering. “We will have an up or down vote” was on the Senate floor where he needs to respect those who have not announced which way they will go.

    Documents obtained Monday by Breitbart News indicate Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has enlisted an “experienced sex-crimes prosecutor” to handle questioning at Thursday’s hearing on the 36-year-old sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

    I agree with Jason. The Republican caving is over. There will be no further retreat.

  250. lisab says:

    so …

    a.) if the republicans hold together, will any dems cross over from red states, or do they all have to vote “no” now?

    b.) what happens if the witness shows up but is nothing great, and the republicans still don’t have 50 votes? that is, what happens to flake, collins, etc.? i know the midterms would be bad, but will their be any punishment? in theory, collins could cross the aisle.

  255. Phil says:

    I have to say that so far I have gotten a pretty good vibe from Collins. I can tell you this – if she votes yes you won’t see Flake or Corker vote no. That’s all the cover any Republican needs. She is the key and it would indicate some courage on her part. Corker and Flake? Voting no would be about as cowardly a thing as could happen. They don’t face the voters – and for them it would simply be submitting a job application to CNN.

    RE: Flake’s net worth

    Said to be one of the 5 poorest members of Congress. $690000. He WILL need to do something that pays after he leaves office.

  270. lisab says:

    Lisa, he’ll have his pick of job opportunities from the left
    ——————

    i don’t think so, unless he goes full joe scarborough, and i think that job is taken.

    the thing is, flake like collins, are useful to the dems, but they are not dems.

    i think no one in the dem party picks up flake’s phone calls in the future

    and

    only gop-never-trumpers will, if kavanaugh is confirmed

    if kavanaugh is not confirmed because of flake, other never-trumpers will lose their seats

    Avenatti, after claiming new accuser would emerge in 48 hours 24 hours ago, now says it will “probably be in 36”. Meanwhile, he shut down Twitter account because of “trolls”.

  273. hugh says:

    I interpret Collins comments to be positive versus negative. I think all Collins is saying is that if rameriz wants to testify she must first go in front of the senate investigators to which the attorneys for her said all the information they will get is by reading the new Yorker. Collins would prefer she testify, but she is not going to so nothing more to see here.

  274. Phil says:

    I doubt Ramirez refusing to talk to investigators or submitting a sworn statement is going to exactly help with Collins or anyone else.

    “That is looking a gift horse in the teeth, it gives Ford to opportunity to tell any lie she wants and there will be no follow up.”

    -Why can’t outside counsel ask follow-ups?”

    Well, if you have 11 GOP Senators asking questions, you have the opportunity for a lot of them to have time to analyze the answers and think of follow-up questions.

    The counsel will have to do the follow-ups on the cuff and will not have the same political acumen a senator who has probably done hundreds of hearings. I really don’t see the counsel as challenging any of the answers.

    You put more faith in bloviating Senators like Flake, Corker, Murk, Collins, etc than you would in a person who does this for a living??

    You are a much looser A-Hole than I thought possible.

  281. NYCmike says:

    In my experience watching these Senators, and House persons, they have an agenda beforehand, and stick to it, no matter what answers they get.

    Usually very unproductive.

  286. NYCmike says:

    Odd, I asked “-Why can’t outside counsel ask follow-ups?””.

    jason said they could ask follow-ups, but that it would be better for 11 political hacks to do that job.

    NOW, jason says that there are ZERO people in this country who cross-examine witnesses as a day job…..

  287. jason says:

    You put more faith in bloviating Senators like Flake, Corker, Murk, Collins, etc ”

    Absolutely. They know this is political circus, their specialty. The other side does too.

    And of course, you are too stupid to know Cork, Murk and Collins are not even on the Judiciary Committee,

    The senators I would expect to ask the tough questions are Graham, Hatch, Grassley, Cruz, Lee, Tillis, tec.

  289. jason says:

    OW, jason says that there are ZERO people in this country who cross-examine witnesses as a day job”

    No what I said is this is NOT a courtroom, and yes there are not a lot of people who ask questions of sexual assault accusers in senate hearings for a living.

  290. Phil says:

    Wait a second. Nelson up 7?

    How does that suddenly happen?

  291. jason says:

    I don’t think a Q poll showing Scott at 46 in FL is fatal to his chances.

  292. hugh says:

    Scott will win FL. Nelson doesn’t even have any ads up at this point and scott does. No reason whatsoever for Scott to have dropped. It is just a bad poll.

  296. jason says:

    but that it would be better for 11 political hacks to do that job.”

    Yep that is the way it has worked for ages.

    Now because the GOP is afraid of the optics of mean white men badgering a poor woman as portrayed by the MSM, they want to hide and abstain from their duty as members of the committee, setting a really bad precedent that will not not only backfire in the future, it will give Ford a license to lie her head off without any pushback.

  297. hugh says:

    much better to have a prosecutor do the questioning. She would get a pass from the senators. I also think she is more likely to bail without the dem senators able to have her back.

  298. jason says:

    i think the problem is they don’t want a white male senator asking her questions

    they probably want a hispanic or black woman”

    Yes, but that is a cop out.

    A white male is entitled to ask fair questions just like anyone else.

    Pretty soon if a Native American is on the stand, you will have to dig up a tribal lawyer to ask questions. Transgender, will have to be an LBGT whatever lawyer.

    This is a slippery slope.

    Let the Judiciary Committee members ask the questions like it is always done and stop worrying about what the MSM wants, they are going to attack you anyway.

  299. jason says:

    LGBT not LBGT

  300. Redmen4ever says:

    Q and Vox/UVA/Reuters find Trump well underwater in Florida. Gravis and Morning Consult find him treading water.

  301. jason says:

    This is not a courtroom. There will be no “prosecutor”.

    And yes, the only explanation I can think of for them to refuse this golden gift horse of a counsel asking questions is that they won’t have the Dems to run interference.

    Still, they come out way ahead on the exchange.

  302. jason says:

    I see NYC has chosen to leave after voicing his objections to people who are not even on the Judiciary Committee asking questions.

    Sen. Hirono on Kavanaugh: GOP Can’t Face Idea “Women Do Not Sit Around Making These Things Up”

    OK, and Democrat activists don’t grab a rifle and shoot up the GOP baseball practice either.

  304. Todd McCain says:

    My one concern over Gillum was that he was going to increase AA turnout dramatically and swamp Scott. DeSantis needs to get that campaign in gear and get out and campaign. Safe spaces like FOX NEWS only interviews aren’t going to cut it.

  305. Redmen4ever says:

    I have a repressed memory of once stopping at a gas station to ask directions.

  306. CG says:

    In 1992, it came out that Mazie Hirono’s political mentor, Daniel Inouye had been accused of rape by his longtime female barber.

    The current Senator has never expressed any concern about the matter all these years. After Inouye died, it has come out that other women have alleged similar mistreatment.

    I don’t know if he Inouye was guilty or not, but I sure know that Mazie Hirono is a complete and utter hypocrite.

  307. jason says:

    I think GIllum will turn off some people too, might be a wash.

  308. jason says:

    I have a repressed memory of once stopping at a gas station to ask directions.”

    Wow.

    Real men don’t ask for directions.

    I prefer to get lost. My wife will testify to that.

  309. CG says:

    DeSantis got off to a bad start (whether his comments were misconstrued or not), and perhaps I underestimated the political strength of Gillum.

    Nonetheless, this is a Bernie Sanders vs Donald Trump proxy war in a swing state that went red last time, if there ever was such a thing.

    He’s going to be asked all sorts of questions about the “toxic masculinity” in his HS yearbook. The left doesn’t even yet know how far they will have to sink.

    It’s because he was embarrassed by a 4Chan prank. The “woman” who had him blaring about a new Kavanaugh accuser and Rape Gangs was the girlfriend of a 4Chan guy. When she went dark, he realized his big reveal was a hoax and he was gonna look like a punk.

  313. CG says:

    I don’t necessarily see this as a voting issue beyond specific Senate races where Senators up for reelection may have to answer for their votes on the confirmation.

    These are polarizing times and people who feel strongly as it relates to how Kavanaugh is being treated tend to already know where they stand politically, for the most part.

    As long as nothing completely unexpected comes out Thursday, Republicans should vote to confirm, whether the public opinion polls are supportive or not. They already crossed that threshold in hitching their wagon to Trump. They might as well go all out., “damn the consequences” for something fundamentally important that will matter long after Trump.

    Right, I do too.

    And while I don’t agree with some of his policies, I think he has been pretty right, just and decent as President.

    And yes, I admit that is kind of surprising.

    But that is why most Republicans support him.

  324. CG says:

  328. ReadyFirst says:

    It’s been about week and it’s the same discussion. Take the vote. Nothing will change except the name or substance of the next accuser/excuse. Btw, Ford will not testify, why should she? She’s accomplishing her objective by not testifying. GOP, take charge and take the vote before the wobbly knees give out.

  329. jason says:

    nd his character and integrity, both private and public, is irrelevant as it relates to the policy or political ends justifying the means….”

    I think his character and integrity compares favorably with a lot of the people accusing him of not having character and integrity, especially in the MSM.

  330. CG says:

    Whether she testifies or not, Kavanaugh will, which is what he wants, and I think he will walk away from that, as difficult an experience as it may be, all the better for himself, his family, and for history.

    Then, the vote will be held. If his accuser was not willing to testify under oath, that should certainly play a role in the mind of anything who is considering a no vote.

  331. Waingro says:

    Murk worrying me a bit with this statement.

    LISA MURKOWSKI SPEAKS … NYT’S NICK FANDOS: “‘We are now in a place where it’s not about whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is qualified,’ Ms. Murkowski, a key swing Republican vote, said in an extended interview in the Capitol Monday night. ‘It is about whether or not a woman who has been a victim at some point in her life is to be believed.’ …

    https://www.politico.com/newsletters/playbook-pm/2018/09/25/kavanaugh-saga-far-from-over-311873

  332. Waingro says:

    The “out” if you will for Collins and Murk is to say the evidence is “inconclusive”. And then fall back on his qualifications to vote yes and ram him through.

  333. CG says:

    345. Not everyone views it as a competition or a zero-sum game (if I did, Trump would still be way worse than anyone else to whom the comparison is being made. His character and integrity, especially in the context of the Presidency are a disgrace on a hourly basis, regardless of the good Supreme Court nominees someone else introduced him to.)

    Justifying his faults by some sort of comparison to others will never be ok for me. Whatever “side” I am on, I want my “side” to not have to rely on who is slower to go to the bottom.

    Whatever one wants to say about the “left” or the “MSM”, those of us who are lucky enough to live in America should know what character and integrity have been and really are and it does not apply Donald Trump by any stretch.

  334. ReadyFirst says:

    343. Jason, I would agree with most of that except I think the trade issue is a TBD. At first, I was very concerned about Trump pulling a smoot-hawley with tariffs. The new Mexico deal and probable Canadian deal have given me second thoughts. If Trump can pull off a China deal then he’ll look like the smartest guy in the room when it comes to trade.

  335. mnw says:

    That is ominous. If she had said “who CLAIMS to have been a victim” it would be less so. This is sometimes called “begging the question.”

  338. jason says:

    Sorry, Ready, but his trade policy is the exact blue print of the protectionist and isolationist agenda of the AFL-CIO for the last 40 years. A “new deal” doesn’t erase the damage already done to farmers and other major segments of the economy, and to the ideals and principle of free trade that we should be encouraging around the world, not bashing. His trade policy is a complete disaster if you believe in free trade, free markets and free enterprise. If you don’t, then it’s just wonderful.

  343. DW says:

    Murkowski: “Kavanaugh confirmation not about qualifications, but about believing victims.”

    I agree. Kavanaugh is the victim of slander and I believe him. He is far more credible than Ford.

  344. CG says:

    Personally, I would put Trump last on any list when it comes to respecting the Presidency, but it is telling that the comparison only gets made to Clinton or Obama.

    Why can’t it be that someone can claim that Trump is up there in terms of respecting the office, with the Presidents we actually like? Why can’t he measure up in that regard to Reagan or to Lincoln or to whomever? (I know there are Republicans here who somehow hate Lincoln)

    It’s because even his “fans” know how lacking he is. All they can rely on is “whataboutism.”

  345. jason says:

    I have seen nothing comparable to debasing the office of the Presidency since he has been elected by Trump, certainly not to the level of Bill Clinton who was having sex with an intern and groping women in the Oval Office, or Obama who spent 8 years tearing his own country down and using the Presidency as a personal fiefdom from where he used the WH Communications Office to impose a Pravda style propaganda machine.

    I think comparisons ARE useful if we want to make general bombastic accusations.

    I certainly put Reagan ahead of Trump in that regard.

    I have been clear that Trump is no Ronald Reagan.

    But Reagan left office in 1989.

    I think a comparison with more recent Presidents is more appropriate.

    I put GWB ahead of him too.

    The truth is I think Trump respects the office and I have seen nothing since he was inaugurated to the contrary.

    If you want to bring up Stormy or Hollywood tapes or whatever fine, he is no paragon of virtue.

    And btw, he certainly exhibits character by trying to deliver what he promised, even if I don’t support everything he promised.

    Trump got elected because of a ridiculous online conspiracy theory.

  361. jason says:

    ridiculously discredited “Gateway Pundit?”

    Corey only believes is highly credible sources like the Huff Post, New Yorker, and MSNBC.

  362. Robbottie says:

    “Wow, you really have to have TDS to compare Trump to Avenatti.”

  363. Robbottie says:

    “Trump got elected because of a ridiculous online conspiracy theory.

    Who knew?”

    He meant Russian trolls and Putin.

  364. CG says:

    Trump got elected in spite of his having dishonestly been the mouthpiece for a ridiculous conspiracy theory (and he found some new ones during the campaign too, such as Ted Cruz’s father killed JFK), so if it didn’t hurt Trump, it might not hurt Avenatti.

  365. CG says:

    Considering their record, as it relates to falsely identifying mass shooters etc, there is no universe in which the “Gateway Pundit” has an ounce of credibility.

  366. CG says:

    I can’t access Twitter or 4Chan at work, and of course I believe Kavanaugh is innocent as I have repeatedly stated, but is this Avenatti was duped story being reported anywhere other than right-wing media?

  367. jason says:

    such as Ted Cruz’s father killed JFK)”

    Is that why Trump got elected?

    You really think that?

    Or was that a 15 second non-issue in a 2 year long campaign?

    And actually, that is not even through, Trump said Cruz’s father WAS WITH Oswald shortly before Oswald killed JFK.

    And Ted is a bigger man than you are of course, he doesn’t have TDS and he would have good reason to.

  368. jason says:

    Through? Huh, true.

  369. CG says:

    Ted Cruz is a “servile little puppy dog.”

    His father was not with Oswald.

    Again, you seem to have an issue accepting that Trump got elected *in spite of* this and the Birther conspiracy he was the mouthpiece for, and all the other crazy things he said.

    So, Avenatti , who says he may run for President, may be thinking it won’t hurt him either.

    The truth is so blasé this days when the ends justify the means…

  370. Robbottie says:

    Outside of Right-wing outlets, is there anyone who is saying Kavanaugh is being railroaded?

  371. jason says:

    Trump got elected in spite of his having dishonestly been the mouthpiece for a ridiculous conspiracy theory”

    You mean the birther thing years before?

    Frankly, I think there were a lot of other issues that got Trump elected, 1,000 more in the minds of voters than that.

    Some people actually move on, Corey, I know it’s hard for you to understand that.

  372. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    So the Quinnipiac Florida Senate Poll shows Nelson(D) going from a 45/45 tie earlier this month to a seven point lead. Let’s fisk it:
    1) Scott(R) leads by 8 pts. with Whites whereas he was +11 earlier this month.
    2)With AA’s, Scott went from 5% earlier this month to 10% in today’s poll.
    3) I hope you are sitting down for the Hispanic analysis. Scoot was up a net 20 pts. with Hispanics earlier this month and is now down a net 30 in today’s poll. THIS IS A 50PT. swing with a group which comrrises about 15% of the Florida vote.

  376. jason says:

    Again, you seem to have an issue accepting that Trump got elected *in spite of* this and the Birther conspiracy he was the mouthpiece for, and all the other crazy things he said.”

    Not really. I am ok that he got elected in spite of birtherism, his disgusting attack on McCain’s service, his calling a federal judge a “Mexican”, etc.

    If you remember, one of the reasons I was so opposed to him was the same reason I was so opposed to your candidate, I thought stupid statements made him a certain loser in the GE.

    But I was wrong, people decided to judge him on other things than I did. And once he became President, I think its fair to judge him on new data, not what happened during the campaign. So that is what I am doing.

  377. Robbottie says:

    “You mean the birther thing years before?”

    No, I told you. He means the Russians. Did you know HHR was infested with Russian bots?

  378. CG says:

    If Avenatti gets in Democrat debates, he may do very well, considering the cast of character he may be up against. (Apparently on the issues though, he may not be ideologically leftist as the party wants)

    He does indeed have a lot in common with Trump (although I think he is more intelligent) and while that is a bad trait, it does have political appeal.

  379. jason says:

    I hope you are sitting down for the Hispanic analysis. Scoot was up a net 20 pts. with Hispanics earlier this month and is now down a net 30 in today’s poll. THIS IS A 50PT. swing with a group which comrrises about 15% of the Florida vote.”

    The good news regarding her statement is that Kavanaugh is more than qualified so she is a yes vote based on that. She, like Collins, Flake and others have pretty much said yes unless Ford can convince her of Kavanaugh’s sexual transgressions.

    What bugs me about this whole Greek Tragedy is that the GOP squishes say NOTHING about the devious moves of their Democrat colleagues. Are they that dense that they are completely unaware that they are being played?!

    If there’s a vote on confirmation on the Senate floor, you can’t be sure all Democrats will vote no.

    According to Vox, 3 Rs are not announced (The Flake and the Weak Sisters)

    6 Ds are also not announced (Tesler, Manchin, Heidkamp, Nelson, Donnelly and Jones).

    All other Rs are announced or leaning yes, and all other Ds are announced or learning no.

    I figure Nelson votes no but only at the last minute so as to minimize the damage.

    If Heidkamp is toast, she votes no. If Manchin thinks he’s so far ahead he could take a hit on gun rights, he also votes no.

    This leaves three Jones (whose seat is up two years from now), Donnelly (from a midwestern state rated as a toss-up) and Tesler (from a rural state rated as lean D).

    This may be a case where we win either way; possibly by winning on confirmation, in any case by forcing a vote, and possibly by forcing Tesler and others to reveal their true selves.

    Bost is facing his most difficult challenge to reelection yet. That cannot be denied and anybody who would claim so is dumb.

    I have said that I think he is a slight favorite to win reelection and that there at least two more vulnerable GOP incumbents in IL.

  414. Bitterlaw says:

    I suspect that Kavanaugh wore OP shirts and shorts. Not disqualifying but too 80sin hindsight.

  415. CG says:

    The Democrats are still asking for the hearing to be delayed until former foreign exchange student Long Duc Dong can be located to testify as to what Kavanaugh was like at parties..

    (this joke went nowhere last week, oh well)

  416. mnw says:

    correetroll is full of trollskit

    “But… he shot a dog once”!

  417. CG says:

    Nobody is denying Bost shot the dog. He is a hothead. Maybe Congress needs hotheads.

    What you said, months ago, was that Bost was beloved in his district and had no enemies.

    No, he has lots of enemies, whether there are enough of them to cost him reelection or not. Bost likes the fact that he has enemies.

  418. Bitterlaw says:

    The only person on Earth who is definitely not multiracial is Walt. Being the first human sets him apart.

  419. lisab says:

    interestingly enough, ralph taylor would have been considered black in some southern states

    so should he not get preferential treatment?

  420. mnw says:

    I have the advantage of having owned a home in Bost’s district for 20+ yrs, & knowing Bost’s DEM opponent personally for 10 yrs or so…

    But li’l trollycorrree knows EVERY gd thing about it, doncha, troll?

    Take your eeyore zh*t & go get f’d.

  421. jason says:

    The Avenatti thing could be a prank itself, but its strange the rumor has been around for several hours and Avenattin has not denied it.

  422. CG says:

    Strawdog, you claimed here months ago that the current opponent of Bost raised less money than the 2016 opponent. I linked to the actual numbers would proved you had no idea what you are talking about.

    I know how fragile you are, but you have to accept correction when it is needed.

  423. CG says:

    So, you know Brendan Kelly? So what? Have you ever met Bost himself? How can you make the magic determination on the race without “knowing” them both?

    As of today, I think Bost wins the race by 5 points or so.

  424. Robbottie says:

    And at your age, you probably have a UTI, which is causing your confusion. Also, CG is pretty sure you have TMJ and hypothyroidism.

    I think he has his head up his “adz.” I don’t know the medical term. I’m only an amateur doctor.

    And I am holding mnw personally responsible if his Cardinals (remember how he used to spam this site with poems devoted to them?) do not beat the Brewers tonight…

    Lisab hardest hit. Dunkin’ Donuts and CVS pharmacies make up 75% of tbe businesses in Boston.

  428. CG says:

    Democrats should subpoena Billie Jean from “The Legend of Billie Jean” who can testify “Fair is Fair” and also that reporter chick from “Just One of the Guys” who can insist that her friendship with Kavanaugh caused her to expose herself to him while wearing a tuxedo.

  429. Robbottie says:

    “I’m only an amateur doctor.”

    WHAT!?!? I spent $40000 on the hip replacement, you quack!

  430. DW says:

    MD just posted this on RRH:

    “Flake being an idiot wouldn’t surprise me but seeing as the outside counsel suggestion was made by Collins, I doubt Murkowski would use that as an excuse to vote no.”

  431. Mr.Vito says:

    Gallup party ID dropped for September: 47-44 D-R

  432. CG says:

    And you still aren’t very hip… but few math majors are.

  433. CG says:

    Is MD being pro-Kavanaugh on RRH and anti-Kavanaugh on Twitter?

    RRH does get talked about a lot on here. Not sure why.

    I left the GOP after Trump won the nomination and did not vote for him in November. The left’s descent into madness since with their treatment of Kavanaugh and now chasing Senators out of restaurants is my breaking point. I’m voting straight GOP this year. https://twitter.com/EsotericCD/status/1044416154834554880 …

    In 2012 I came across a phenomenon I called “broken glass voters.” Those were the people who after four years of Obama would crawl over broken glass to vote for Mitt Romney even though they weren’t quite sure about him. I honestly thought — or at least allowed myself to think — that they’d be enough to put Romney over the top, which was one of the worst calls I ever made.

    This year I’m seeing a lot of comments like Peter Cook’s above, people who have seen the Left’s descent into madness and will hold their noses and vote straight GOP.

    Will there be enough of them to keep the House?

    Stay tuned…

  435. Mr.Vito says:

    So, the numbers that were published from May to September average D+2.6.

  436. jason says:

    RRH does get talked about a lot on here. Not sure why.”

    I have never been there.

    I can follow everything here.

  437. jason says:

    Well I certainly will crawl over cow piles to vote a straight R ticket, even if I didn’t vote in the PA primary and don’t consider myself a Republican anymore.

    Trump is scum. I am relieved that he is appointing Federal judges and Hillary is not. Both can be true.”

    Bitter is compelled to call Trump scum everyday as some sort of penitence for voting FOR scum.

    But who am I to judge, many A-holes are f–cked up.

  440. lisab says:

    rumor has it avenatti got played by 4chan

    apparently they set him up with a “third victim”, who wanted $75k to testify

    avenatti offered $20k

    and all that symbolism in the yearbooks for sex parties and such … 4chan just made it up 🙂

  441. jason says:

    Avenatti is denying it, could be a hoax.

    But Twitter is full of “accusation that he has been pranked is credible, demanding FBI investigation”.

    Cuomo says global warming not coming fast enough for

    “ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed the upstate weather
    for prompting New Yorkers to flee to other states.

    Cuomo told reporters Tuesday that while job losses and high taxes once drove people to leave New York, his administration has ended that trend and improved the local economic situation.”

  443. jason says:

    for NY, that should say.

  444. lisab says:

    he turned his twitter off

    so it may be true

    and … supposedly he was supposed to go on msnbc last night to release the info on rachel maddow’s show … and he did go on …

    but he had to backtrack everything

    FL

    Nelson 48

    The Florida numbers concern me the most; two credible polls now have shown Nelson retake the lead.

    dear michael,

    i am a kavanaugh victim …

    i would be happy to drive to dc for thursday’s hearing

    Sheeple,Jr.- No
    DW- No

    lisab-yes
    Cash Cow-yes

    She will come testify, but early on will faint and collapse and have to be rushed to a hospital (observation)…which will postpone the hearing for at least one more day to give the “Legions of Satan” 24 more hours to dig up some other kooky vermin…er…women…to cook up some other make believe accounts of Kavanaugh pinching their bums or boobs.

  449. Cash Cow TM says:

    I hear Dr. Ford is also demanding that all testimony in the hearing be conducted in either Swahili or the Click-Clack tongue.

  450. mnw says:

    Murkowski is really more ominous by far than Collins.

    In a CNN interview, Murk was asked if she would like to see “a full FBI investigation” of Ford’s accusation?” She answered, “It sure would clear up a lot of unanswered questions, wouldn’t it?”

    I still shake my head in wonder that AK sent THIS to the Senate.

  451. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “RRH does get talked about a lot on here. Not sure why.”

    Why talk about another board here? Why not just post on that board?

  452. DW says:

    466 – you forgot to include that she is a princess from Nigeria.

  453. Cash Cow TM says:

    The comparisons are astounding.
    ################################
    Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s theatre.

    Dr. Ford will assassinate the character of Kavanaugh in a theatre of the absurd.

  454. DW says:

    “It sure would clear up a lot of unanswered questions, wouldn’t it?”

    Murk admit’s she a dolt?

    What’s the FBI going to do, get a 1985 DeLorian and convert it into a time-machine?

  455. DW says:

    465 – it is Marist. I already posted my lengthy expose on them from 2014 and all those senate races where they were wildly off.

    cosby got 3 to 10 years

    no bail

  460. CG says:

    Oh, I thought it was if he would “kill” in prison.

  461. mnw says:

    Fwiw, McConnell repeated today after a GOP luncheon that he “believes K will be confirmed in the very near future.”

    Corker sounds more Yes-y than No-y to me. Could be my imagination.
