This is embarrassing for the GOP.

 

What are you talking about? Calling protesters insolent for demanding transparency while suppressing 90% of a nominee's documents is a SUPER good look. Along with pimping the nominee's book during an opening statement. Good fucking lord lol

"Hearings to appoint SCJ are a fairly new thing, we've only been doing them since 1916."

 

Do these people actually hear themselves speak?

Damn, I think we can get bi-partisan support confirming that the daughter is fine as fuck. 

Definitely not Kavanaugh's daughter.  The pic in Retread's post had a link with more details on her:

I love how they keep bringing up Bork, who fired Special Council Cox - who was investigating Nixon.

They don’t even hide their corruption.

Yep - she's got quite a resume trifecta: (1) deputy director of policy and communications for U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, (2) Special Assistant to President Trump for regulatory reform, legal and immigration policy and (3) senior counsel to Ken Paxton.  Wow, if accurate.

There is a 35 month document black hole on Kavanaugh’s history in the White House during the Bush years.  He wasn’t a private attorney.  He was being paid by US tax dollars.

That’s insane.

Why is Kavanaugh even there? 

Are they going to ask a question today?

Still going through opening statements from the judiciary committee.

The best part about what Ted Cruz is talking about is knowing that his positions will ultimately be on the losing side of history.

Because conservatism always loses to progressivism in a democracy.

The democracy has to still exist at the end for conservatism to lose.

Agreed, which is why I included the "in a democracy" part. That's key.

This morning they claimed they wanted to after around 2:30, then admitted it would probably be pushed back.

Yes Ben Sasse, we should be reticent to use power. And we should debate and vote. Maybe we should have a debate with all of the information you fucking moron

Sasse is doing the best job among the Republicans on this committee so far.

Which isn't saying much.

Why would it stop when POTUS managed to wrangle a BA from an Ivy and has somehow decided that's an elite club he not only belongs to but should advocate for?

I don't think it will, but I think it should. The jurisprudence of this nation shouldn't be shaped solely by graduates of a small cluster of law schools in the northeast.

I knew that was a fucked proposition when the idea of a SC justice out of UMich was considered impossible.  (Can't remember who that was.  All I remember was "wait, what?")

I'm sorry but this shit is corny as hell.

I bet you 90% of the intended audience doesn't understand the reference and I'll be glad if they don't.  They need to actually do their jobs and not be watching TV mini-series.
