Kavanaugh’s Testimony: Here are the highlights (and lowlights)

Kavanaugh’s Testimony: Here are the highlights (and lowlights)

If you missed the hearing, we’ve got you covered.

Thursday, Judge Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Again. Kavanaugh came out swinging, clearly incensed that his name, reputation, and family have been dragged through hell these last few weeks.

If you missed the hearing, we’ve got you covered.

First, Kavanaugh’s opening statements. Long, but definitely worth the time:

And the highlights:

Flatulence. Because that’s where we are as a country.

Lindsey Graham tore.it.up.

Kavanaugh takes no crap from DiFi

Sasse schools Democrats on basic civics

Republican committe members doxxed

Whitehouse is a clown

Trump tweets

Overall a pathetic performance by the Republicans in questioning Ford.

Kavanaugh’s powerful statement FINALLY gave them some backbone, and Graham gave the speech Grassley the coward should have given a week ago.

I still think Flake and Collins are going to vote him down, but at least there was FINALLY some pushback to the disgusting slime being thrown by the Democrats.

    See how little it took to turn this around? Two men, telling the unvarnished truth! But apparently that was asking too much of the rest of the GOP members on that committee.

    No more RINOs.

honestly after watching today’s hearing – Grassley pooch kicked Kavanaugh’s nomination to try and protect the Republican “brand” for the coming election season

that is my initial take of it anyways

in football terms – it was like watching the worst onside kick in history

Ford was literally unchallenged on any testimony she gave while each and every Democrat tried to roast the Judge

Grassley from the day these ridiculous allegations were made handled it as poorly as one could have because instead of outright challenging the claims from the start, let that door get kicked wide open by trying to cater to the accuser who (still) has no evidence to back up any claim she made

today was just kabuki theater with one side |D| playing to win and the other side |R| playing not to lose

I hope I’m wrong but I don’t think Kavanaugh gets to 50

I think he is at 48, 49 after the Republicans performance today

The Ben Sasse Civics video isn’t linked to the correct video. It’s the Whitehouse video.

    And the second Whitehouse video is also the wrong video. This was from a prior session, about the federalist society. Nothing about farting or drinking games.

Missed it on purpose due to blood pressure concerns. Thanks for summing it up.

Now the democrats are talking about high school year books, barfing, beer and farts with a nominee to the Supreme Court? I am not sure if we should be laughing or crying?

Ok, question: If the Senate winds up punting on the vote say for example 49-50, can Trump recess appoint Kavanaugh to the SC during the Senate’s recess between the election and the new Senate being seated?

Seems it would be a very Trumpian “Kiss my grits” move. I’d stand up and applaud.

Mitchell was brought in to convince the wavering republicans, not to change any public opinion. And I think that she did enough on that score.

    Story is that a all-hands meeting of GOP senators was held last night and told by Michell she would never try to prosecute on the facts, or even apply for a warrant.

    This seems to have been effective.

Brett Kavanaugh has been through a Kobayashi Maru scenario. There is no way to win, and the person is judged on how he responds to the inevitable failure.
