    The yearbook pic is real. The interpretations may be incorrect (hahahaha, no, they're not, but it's like 99% not 100%) and who knows about the KKK.

    Someone released a letter written Kavanaugh about beach week where he talked about prolific pukers. Gee, who goes on vacation with people who have such weak stomachs? Hoped they packed the mild ketchup to put on their spaghetti. (The Italian in me might be more offended by that than almost everything else.)

    Anyway, this is how he signed the letter.



    Guess that was another one of those "white lies" or "you can't call it perjury because you don't know if he's really lying" things when you recall leahy specifically asked him if he was the Bart in Judge's book.

    Ryan,
    Can the FBI actually get records like employment history and I guess tax information showing how long someone worked? I thought the only real thing they can do is conduct an interview via an FD-302 form. But the county police, I would think, could surely get as much as they wanted and at any time they wanted. Just assign someone to a/the "case."

    All these reports about how limited the investigation is still going to make it difficult on those three republicans.

    I turned on MSNBC an hour ago and Mitch was on the senate floor. You know, I'm willing to see both sides and consider everything, every possibility. But when he stood there and said one of the biggest problems was protesters standing outside of offices or following senators around the capitol or outside of Washington.
    That's something you absolutely will not do, Mitch! You will not blame the survivors, women and men who ten years ago probably would never talk about this stuff in public because they would not be supported.
    Times have changed. If only just in the last couple years.
    These people deserve to be heard by their representatives.

    Buck Up, Republicans. Next week your lives will go back to normal. You can handle this inconvenience for the time being.

    FBI report is 46 pages and shows not corroboratory information. Senate could vote as early as Saturday with cloture votes tomorrow around noon.

    If he's complaining about protests now, just wait. He hasn't seen anything yet. I truly hope the rage finally boils over. It has to.

    Well, I'm sure the democrats aren't going down without a fight. If they have to throw their bodies down on the senate floor to stop proceedings I wouldn't put it past them.
    Get ready for some screaming and some shouting.

    And please, boardmates, if you can.. call Sen. Collins and Sen. Murkowski. Just because they may not be your state's senator doesn't mean their phones won't ring from your line/cell. If a staff member won't take your message, which is rare, because you won't list your zip code. Bangor, Maine (04401) - Anchorage, Alaska (99501). Get creative with it.

    Most professionals I read/listen to say DO NOT DO THIS unless you live in Maine or Alaska. You're not their constituent. They don't care. And even if they do care, you're taking up the phone line from an actual resident. Committing fraud, however admirable the reason, is going to backfire. Bigly. If it turns out that they're using caller ID to track calls and all of these people are not calling from their states, why are they going to listen to ANY of the messages because the pool has been tainted?

    If law professors and church officials don't matter, then one former SC Justice isn't going to matter, but it's important

    I don't think we'll get a vote this weekend.

    MT Senator:



    If Flake, Markowski, Collins ALL commit to voting yes... maybe a DINO like Manchin... But it's going to be so close I don't think Mitch can chance it. If it's tie Pence casts the vote, but you gotta get to a tie for that. And what if someone else develops a brief elevator conscience?

    Plus tonight that partisan hack Bart published an editorial in the WSJ. So much for making himself look less like a party adherent. Just appear on Murdoch shows and write in Murdoch papers. Don't face the real scrutiny of ANY OTHER source, other than like Sinclair. Chickenshit. Anyway, the editorial itself is also extraordinarily unusual so it might not help his cause. It inflames us on the left, but I don't know if it chills out the independents, moderates, centrists.

    And more and more keeps coming out about what a crock the FBI investigation was. More time is NOT going to help him. It doesn't mean it's enough to stop this fiasco, but it won't help.



    Judge Kavanaugh told the Judiciary Committee under oath he never discussed Ms. Ramirez's allegations before the New Yorker article—now we know, from confirmed public reports, he asked friends to vouch for him before it was ever published.

    Any lawyer knows coordinating eyewitness accounts could constitute witness tampering. We don't know what Judge Kavanaugh said in the days before the New Yorker story broke, but it sure seems like something the FBI should've investigated, & may explain misleading testimony.

    I called Flake and Collins today. Forgot about Murkowski. Will do that tomorrow.
    And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
    And we'll live a long life

    The cloture vote barely passed, 51-49. It would be amazing if Collins and Manchin voted no in the final tomorrow.

    I really have no faith in that happening. All of these people lost whatever shred of dignity and morality they had the day McCain died.

    Really pleasantly surprised about Murkowski's no vote. Collins is supposed to announce her position at 3pm today. I am so sick of being disappointed by Collins. And if Manchin votes yes tomorrow than he is entirely useless to the democratic party. I don't understand politically how that helps him.

    If she's having to announce it, the answer is yes. If it were no, she'd say so quietly to Mitch who'd "reschedule" the vote and work on her more. They'd keep postponing it, not go for it. She wouldn't publicly embarrass him.

    Flake is a yes. So it's 51-49, but really 50-49 with the MT guy being away. Murkowski being a no would be a tie, with Pence as extra vote. If it's mathematically certain, Manchin will vote yes to cover his ass... and to be fair, what does it matter at that point?

    So that rapey piece of shit is going to be on the court. It sucks, but it's better to accept it now than be surprised tomorrow. He might make the court, but the reporters aren't going to stop. And if he's confirmed, it *could* help the blue wave, a wave that could impeach him. Which even if doesn't remove him, will embarrass and taint him further.

    It's not good, but it's not OVER. Just this chapter of the story.
