In Which We Speculate Wildly About SCOTUS Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Kiss me, you fool!

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) sums up how the teenage Brett Kavanaugh (ALLEGED) sexual assault story is playing with the party of family values:

“The decades-old sexual misconduct charge detonated at the most critical juncture of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle — sending Republicans into damage control mode and leaving Democrats unsure how or whether to capitalize. …

“But after a tense 24 hours of speculation and partisan tussling over what one top Republican called ‘wholly unverifiable’ allegations, Kavanaugh remained exactly where he started: neither closer to nor farther away from the 50 votes needed to give President Donald Trump a second high court justice in two years. The two swing-vote GOP senators who hold Kavanaugh’s fate in their hands, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, made no comment Friday on an anonymous woman’s charge. …

“Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) plans to press ahead with a Thursday committee vote on Kavanaugh, and GOP sources said that nothing short of public skepticism from Collins or Murkowski would upend the party’s plans for a final Supreme Court confirmation vote this month on the full Senate floor.”

And last night (before I left for a concert at a local club), Scissorhead Jim Tarrant and I had an interesting conversation on the Twitters:

…which kina gob-smacked me. Being the naif that I am, I’m surprised that it never dawned on me that Grassley et al would round up 65 stooges to essentially lie to the Senate. D’Oh! But he’s probably right.

And then Scissorhead TexBetsy joined us with even more proof that ol’ naive TG is slipping in his dotage:

Eeek! It’s Jello Salad and early bedtime for me! Tex is always right.

So that’s kinda the state of play.

    So the evidence presented is circumstantial evidence of suborning perjury, provided the letter women were asked to be willing to swear under oath. Does this letter rise to the level of testimony at this point? Can you suborn false testimony?
    Having it ready so quickly is definitely evidence of some sort of fuckery, but what the term is I can not say.

    Let’s be honest: this Kavanaugh hearing is a shitshow. It’s a sham. The Republicans will do virtually anything and everything to shove him through confirmation. McConnell sees this as his life’s work and will not be stopped. They could produce a live video of Kavanaugh strangling a kitten and McConnell would wave it off and persuade all of the whiny wimpy Republicans to go ahead and vote him in.

    He will be confirmed.

    Brett Kavanaugh could shoot somebody on 5th Avenue and the republicans would still vote for him because intellectual conservatives are above the law. Party über alles.
