    This is a LONG article about Kavanaugh lying and dissembling before the Senate committee under oath. As an American it's difficult to read this and the included transcripts and not get pissed off. He is on the horns of a dilemma and I understand that. Either tell the truth and be disqualified because of his past behavior or lie and be disqualified for lying. He chose to grandstand, lie and fight back with any tool at hand i.e.; Clintons, liberal groups and other perceived enemies while also attacking and sneering at the Senators who were there to ask him questions. How can one rule on the law after displaying such a lack of respect for the legislature?

    There is no way to read this and think to yourself, "Ya, this guy should definintely be on the U.S. Supreme Court."

    Take this exchange for example:

    WHITEHOUSE: So the vomiting that you reference in the Ralph Club reference, related to the consumption of alcohol?

    KAVANAUGH: Senator, I was at the top of my class academically, busted my butt in school. Captain of the varsity basketball team. Got in Yale College. When I got into Yale College, got into Yale Law School. Worked my tail off.

    or this one:

    KLOBUCHAR: OK. Drinking is one thing, but the concern is about truthfulness, and in your written testimony, you said sometimes you had too many drinks. Was there ever a time when you drank so much that you couldn’t remember what happened, or part of what happened the night before?

    KAVANAUGH: No, I — no. I remember what happened, and I think you’ve probably had beers, Senator, and — and so I…

    KLOBUCHAR: So you’re saying there’s never been a case where you drank so much that you didn’t remember what happened the night before, or part of what happened.

    KAVANAUGH: It’s — you’re asking about, you know, blackout. I don’t know. Have you?

    KLOBUCHAR: Could you answer the question, Judge? I just — so you — that’s not happened. Is that your answer?

    KAVANAUGH: Yeah, and I’m curious if you have.

    Or this one where he flat out lies:

    BLUMENTHAL: [In law, there’s a Latin phrase that means] ‘false in one thing, false in everything.’ Meaning in jury instructions that [prosecutors tell] the jury that they can disbelieve a witness if they find them to be false in one thing. So the core of why we’re here today really is credibility. Let me talk…

    KAVANAUGH: But the core of why we’re here is an allegation for which the four witnesses present have all said it didn’t happen.

    cwolff, I'd say I agree with you on about 50% of issues. Obviously I'm on the other side of this one, but your posts are making continually less logical sense as you go here. So I'll just say this instead. It's a retort at about the same level of logic as you're displaying right now:

    I'm saying Kavanaugh lied under oath and his behavior before the senate shows he's unfit to be a Justice on the Supreme Court.

    What about that is Illogical?

    If you don't mind, take the time to flesh out what you're saying and even let me know how you'd do what I'm doing, but in a way that makes logical sense. I'm interested to see what you say though this is a big ask and don't feel obligated to do it.

    The part where none of that is true.

    Agreed that it's difficult to see them pushing the vote. I think they'll hold it even if they don't have the votes (which they most likely will).

    I agree with CWolf that even when you set aside the sexual assault allegations, his blatently partisan attacks along with the fact that he lied multiple times under oath (and already had a history of that) make him grossly unqualified for this position.

    But our politics have become so toxic that he could have murdered a child during his testimony without losing a single Republican vote.

    Hey everyone, here's a shocker! After the false rape allegations wasn't enough to sink Kavanaugh's confirmation time4fun found yet another reason she thinks he's unqualified!

    You mean the reason that existed even before the sexual assault issue came out.

    You mean the things she's specifically referring to in his last appearance before the senate?

    time4fun, I hope you're not spending too much on your white knight here, he sucks at his job.
