Well, Now What?

Now that Bart O’Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the US Supreme Court, I think we have learned a few things.

First, Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski deserves some respect. She listened to her constituents, and voted in a way to represent their wishes. I hear that useless bag of creepy skin filled with idiocy and oozing out word jumbles known as Sarah Palin is threatening to primary Murkowski in 2020. Newsflash! Murkowski was already primaried in the last Senate election in 2010 by her beloved Republican party, and she still won the general election as a freakin’ write-in candidate. Do you know how hard it is to spell Murkowski?

Q: What Democrat looks like a Republican, talks like a Republican, and votes like a Republican?

What I Learned From the Ford & Kavanaugh Testimony

Here’s what I took away from the testimony provided by Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh.

  • Dr. Ford was calm, cool, and believable.
  • The hired interrogator for the Republicans, AZ prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, did more good for Dr. Ford than bad.
  • Rachel Mitchell did seem very intent on proving that Dr. Ford has flown on airplanes despite Dr. Gray’s claim that she has a fear of flying. I have anxiety over dental appointments, but still make them.
  • Lindsay Graham successfully auditioned for Attorney General. Careful what you wish for Lindsay.
  • I was confused by someone who was asked to revisit a sexual assault crying a lot less than someone who was perjuring himself.
  • Brett Kavanaugh likes beer, A LOT!
  • Brett Kavanaugh hates the idea of an FBI investigation, A LOT!
  • If Brett Kavanaugh is so belligerent and yells so much when he is sober, I hate to see him after a few drinks.
  • Who am I to say that Brett Kavanaugh didn’t have a few drinks as hearing prep?
  • Senators Chuck Grassley and Orrin Hatch are walking advertisements for term limits or at least a mandatory retirement age. Sorry Senator Leahy, but you would be collateral damage.

Despite what went on today at the hearing, and regardless of whether the Republicans decide to vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, I still think Attorney Michael Avenatti has a part to play in this pageant. Stay tuned.
