    How about that, the accuser wants an investigation and the accused isn't too thrilled with the idea. Also Kavanaugh said he is willing to do whatever the senate wants so, you know, shut up.

    It's really shameful.
    I was wondering when the whining would start, looks like it started early. Unless Kavanaugh withdraws sometime within the next 48 hours looks like Androidpk was wrong AGAIN.

    If the trio have flooded us in tears over the past 48 hours I can't imagine what we're in store for if Kavanaugh is confirmed.

    What it boils down to is that you don't understand anything.

    Coming from the creep that tried to publicly humiliate a woman after he listened to her masturbate.

    Not sure why you'd create a false statement by me and put it in your signature. Seems kinda creepy...

    Corker has announced he's voting for Kavanaugh. No one is surprised.

    Yeah no surprise there.

    Jeff Flake is playing conflicted, but I'd be shocked if he voted no at the end of the day.

    At this point, we're relying on the conscience of Collins and the political calculations of Murkowski. Murkowski already has reasons not to vote for Kavanaugh even outside of the sexual assault allegations.

    I think at this point the GOP calculation is that any more time to discuss this is going to be bad for Kavanaugh, and, meanwhile, that if they can push him forward there will be no more press cycles around the accusations (which is unlikely)

    Let's just throw this out here: can you imagine if Dr Ford had acted the way he did today? Republican men aren't going to understand this, but every woman who watched this today saw the double standard clearly on display. It was every meeting we've ever sat in. It must be so nice to be able to interrupt everyone around you, show abject disrespect for them, refuse to answer questions, yell, shout, and cry...and to not have your temperament or fitness for a job questioned.

    Lucky.

    I have a brother who has lived here most of his life. He's here illegally from the Philippines, and today I sat around and wondered how many more times I'm going to get to see him. If Trump does what he promised- will my brother be forced to leave? He barely knows the Philippines- this is his home. Where would he even go? He barely knows the family over there. And I know some of you here can't wait for my brother to leave because you feel like he's taking something from you, and he deserves it. And some of you will just find this so hilarious. But he's my brother. And I love him. And now I find myself wondering if in two years, he'll be at Christmas with us.

    A colleague of mine showed up to work on the edge of tears today. Mike Pence is already talking about the LGBTQ rights he's looking forward to dismantling, and he's one of the most anti-gay elected officials in the country. He's responsible for one of the freedom to discrimination/freedom of religion bills. Her sister called her up sobbing, terrified of what this is going to mean for her. I broke down too- what does this mean for my other brother who happens to be gay? What about all of my friends?

    I get how this is some major political victory for some people here. And how it's just hysterically funny to others. And I get how some of you just feel like this is no big deal- because for you it may not be.

    But for some of us- this is beyond terrifying. I'm so scared for my family that I'm literally sick to my stomach.

    Oh and before she accuses me of being sexist don't worry, I think Androidpk and cwolff are way worse at letting their emotions and feelings dictate their politics than you are.

    It's an entertaining read, that's for sure. Very hypocritical to accuse Kavanaugh of temperament when his family is receiving death threats due to this political smear job.

    This is the scariest political moment in my lifetime

    -GOP 2016- who has staved off an internal civil war for another four years and will now have very little standing in the way of their misguided vision and who proved that targeted voter suppression and white racial resentment are enough to keep their power, even while losing the popular vote.

    -White Nationalism- because they finally got back into the national spotlight, and because their champion Steve Bannon is likely to have a prominent political position soon

    -Robert Mercer- who funded Trump's primary super pac, Breibart.com, and the Clinton Cash book- proving that with enough money you can invent reality.

    -Democrats in 2020- because this is building the pieces required for a democratic wave at just the right time, much as the reverse was true for republicans in 2010

    -Putin- who got *exactly* what he wanted- an isolationist US with crumbling faith in democracy


    Losers:

    -Democrats- who are now paying the price for deciding to give in to pro-business sentiments

    -People of Color- who are feeling the consequences of the end of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act

    -Muslims- who should be genuinely afraid right now

    -Immigrants of all kinds- who should also be genuinely afraid right now

    -22 Million insured under the ACA- the bill needed to repeal it is already ready via the reconciliation process and only needs a majority vote to pass

    -The people who voted for Trump- who are about to realize that the master's tools will never dismantle the master's shed

    -Women- who have been reminded that even if they're 10x as qualified as the guy they're competing with, he still has the upper hand

    -Europe- who will have to deal with an emboldened Russia and an unpredictable US who can no longer be counted on to fulfill the treaty obligations that have stood in the way of further Russian aggression

    -GOP 2020- because Trump will tear them apart and walk away laughing

    -Free Press- because now they have to deal with the fact that their desire for ratings got a decidedly anti-free press President elected


    Both the people who supported Trump and the people who opposed him but stayed home or wasted their vote on a third party candidate- you just got the President you deserve.
