McConnell going deep on his strategy of “Don’t Blame Mitch McConnell if this Kavanaugh Thing Doesn’t Happen” https://t.co/5eIimYwkWw

The entire Republican party has devolved into an authoritarian cult where aging white men vow to destroy the world to protect the purity of their essence. And now everybody within earshot of the national news knows it!
Mr. Charles P. Pierce, “I am living in the middle of a pornographic Allen Drury novel—Advise And Lack Of Consent“:
…Anybody who tells you that they know what happens next is lying. So far, El Caudillo Del Mar-A-Lago is making brave noises. Senator Dianne Feinstein wants all hearings into the nomination postponed until an FBI investigation into this mess is concluded but, at the moment, there’s no stomach for what an FBI investigation might reveal. Senator Mitch McConnell, who warned the White House that Kavanaugh would be a tough sell, knew about the Ramirez allegations a week ago, so it is fair to assume that, whatever else may be out there, he already knows it, and yet he told the Values Voters Summit last week that he was going to “plow on through” with the nomination, which is a very unfortunate metaphor in this context. In addition, McConnell’s response to the news that the latest allegations were going to come up was to try and put the nomination into hyperdrive. However, McConnell is also pragmatist enough to know when to cut bait. If the Republicans decide to pull this nomination, it has to happen early in the week. Waiting until Wednesday—or, worse, until Thursday, when Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee—is completely untenable…
Fox News reporter:
Kavanaugh nomination is in trouble. That's why McConnell made blistering speech today. Baseball teams mail it in once they are out of pennant race. McConnell trying to get GOPers to run out out every ground ball in effort to salvage nomination. Kavanaugh lacks the votes right now

And so it was – a classmate who heard about it at the time told me he has thought of it every time he's heard Kavanaugh's name – for the last 35 years! https://t.co/T2dRDUvTG3

The answer, amazingly enough, was "really, really poorly."https://t.co/YTc4b8aIy6

The fun thing about tonight is that Republicans know now that Kavanaugh will not hold up under questioning in a hearing. He almost crumbled under THAT.

LOL, Kavanaugh denying underage drinking, claiming only the seniors were drinking, and only after they were 18.
That’s easily my new favorite lie in this whole thing.

Seriously — the Greedy Old Perverts Defense League are crawling out from under every rock…
No he did it so he could run the Reagan NSC’s effort to secretly sell arms to Iran for hostages to fund an illegal war in Latin America while his POTUS proudly boasted that “we don’t negotiate with terrorists” https://t.co/YOgI1xYRfa

Democrats have concluded Kavanaugh is guilty because of a Washington Post article and a New Yorker article. That's it. They've done it because they serve Moloch, not the American people.

Erick Erickson has clearly picked his hill to die on and I hope you will all join me in wishing him nothing but success in this venture.

That scores of disenfranchised Wisconsin voters holding ropes don't guide a shit-stuffed Macy's Parade-sized float of Merrick Garland to the air space above you & your lie-spewing keyboard, then puncture it with an anti-aircraft missiile? Proof that God is dead & karma, a lie. https://t.co/vzIAH23VSA
