I think we all saw this coming

Kavenaugh is done. Another victim has come forward and claimed he did the Clinton wiener -wag at a college party. She doesn't know the details, but says it happened.*

Politically, he must withdraw. It will cost too much political capital to push him through.There is no time to vet another candidate before the October session of the Court nor before the midterms. That was the point of holding onto Ford's accusation all along, n'est pas?

Maybe both women are telling the truth.

Maybe it is just the dirtiest of dirty politics. Will these accusers fade into history, the deed done? Will they insist the Judge be impeached from the Court of Appeals in ignominious humiliation

The rank politics of the timing sickens me. 

If it is just politics, the Democrats will be sorry. Mother Teresa is dead. No other candidate will be able to pass muster if they so much as spit on the sidewalk as a youth. And the low esteem we all hold Congress will sink yet more until one day a strong President and Praetorian Guard of bureaucrats decides Congress serves no function beyond  upholding the ceremonial pretensions of The Republic and a true dictatorship is born. 

Or Kavenaugh is a serial sexual miscreant. Time will tell.

I'm now motivated to vote in the midterms. 

*below the jump

Yes, call me even more skeptical of woman #2:

In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.

Even CNN and the NYT are a bit wary of this one.

So am i.
I think the phrase I heard that sums it up is if you said your car was stolen people believe until it's discovered otherwise. If you say you were assaulted you are instantly doubted.
He could have saved his ass by not being so cock (pun intended )sure.
I would have believed him better if he had said I did stupid stuff in my youth. Drank to the point of being an idiot. I do not recall such event happening but due to my stupid behaviors I cannot be 120 percent sure. Then state his known behaviors of good behavior and deeds for his adult portion of his life. I would have gave him a pass. Probably even sympathized with him. But when he did the what is is thing like Clinton. And stated it did not happen irra something another which I can't spell. Then hell no.
If you understood the history of the treatment of women and rights you would understand being a hammer will get your nuts crushed. Being kind, humble, and understanding will get us to stand with you. We are, most of us, compassionate by nature even in anger. But try to screw us over .....

So he should have lied...
Just to satisfy you.

He's not done.

None of the "witnesses" have backed up Ford, and this new allegation seems to have been made up out of whole cloth as well.

The Democrats will stop at nothing to prevent the Court from swinging right. They should remember what their false god told them: "Elections have consequences. I won."

This is a civil war. The fighting simply hasn't gone past words.

Yet.

Too many squishy Rs will not fight.

He is done in by rumor and innuendo. If this newest doesn't stick more will be trotted out tomorrow in an unending parade until 2 RINOs cave.

Storm's lawyer is already "dragging dollars through the trailer park" to see what he can find.

Of course if he is really guilty then he should be impeached. But we all know it is about the politics, not the "offense".

He wouldn't not be telling a lie to satisfy me. He would have been telling the truth of what is he has already known to do which was some hard ass partying. (From his yearbook and other past photo quotes etc.) And that he has no recall of said event. Seems clear to me.
There was some other things about him that has bothered me. 200000 in credit card debt fortickets, 92000 for country club memberships, 1.3 million or some other crazy ass figure for a mortgage. Sorry folks I would prefer someone with a little more conservative. Maybe that's the way of Washington but how can people like that relate to regular people. Maybe that's part of the problem. Let them eat cake.
Also if you talk civil war who are you fighting and for whose benefit. Is it really going to benefit you.
So are you going to line up and shoot your neighbors are you willing to die for their self interest. Or are you going to get Smart and start thinking about what is best for everyone and when other people are using you for their benefit.
Are you really talking about killing other people because they think differently than you. Because that is war. It is killing. Plain and simple. Just because they feel different and are trying to have their rights, thoughts and ideas represented as well. Killing oppressing maime destruction suffering.
I hope we are better than that. Even if it is just with words.
Our leaders should be doing better for us than that. We should be doing better than that.
