That was the old world, welcome to the new world.  I'm just happy to see yet another Ivy League frat boy get bitched slapped.  Deny him his throne and they'll find somebody somewhere just as bad but without the discoverable skeletons.

My major concern is that I have no idea what the majority of Americans think about all of this.  I'll bet everybody in Kentucky is praying for his nomination.  In fact, all he would have to do is pretend to repent and accept Jebus and all the good Xtians would jump on his bandwagon.

Look - they just want all fetuses to live so they can put them on death row.

Just some really confused people out there.

Or they'll live until somebody shoots them at school, or church, or the shopping mall, or the theater, or...

Really, hasn't that been Trump's goal all along? Look at everything else his 'administration' has defiled... Hell, they even defiled the word 'fact'.

Excellent article which expressed what I felt and feel better than I could myself. He really nails it.

The Senate on Saturday voted 50-48 to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Itís among the closest votes on a Supreme Court nominee in the history of our country, and it underscores just how divided this whole process has been.

On of the most important positions in our government and you don't even need 51 votes, much less a two third's majority. 

I guess Lawrence O'Donnell is right.

There is an unfortunate truth at the base of what most people are feeling tonight. And that truth is that the Senate is not a democratic institution. That is the sickening core of what we feel deep down when we watch the Senate work. The Senate destroys the American illusion of democracy as it was designed to do. We are allowed to ignore that uncomfortable truth most of the time. But not now. The Founders deliberately created an antidemocratic institution and called it the United States Senate.

We'll see.  In Texas the goobers in small towns outnumber the city people.

Democrats are definitely going to need a better turnout than 2016, Independents as well.

Well...I think that's what they're trying to measure with this kind of polling; voter enthusiasm. But, in general, I agree with you.

Two years ago, in my weaker moments, I would fantasize about beating up Trump supporters. Now I fantasize about beating up Democrats who stay home on election day.

You don't vote, you don't get to bitch.  Or crow.
