Invisible Glasses

I am still scratching my head trying to figure out how all the Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee can turn their back on non-investigated sexual assault charges and vote to pass along SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh for a full Senate vote. Maybe it is because of the invisible glasses that Orrin Hatch wears that allows him to see the truth that we cannot see.

Maybe it is because Lindsey Graham can’t imagine sexually assaulting a female. I wonder what kind of kompromat the Russians are holding over Graham’s head that have made him take such a 180 degree turn and become such a Trump toadie. Just look at the change …

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.

 

Brett Kavanaught

When used as an adjective, the word ‘naught’ has these meanings …

naught

[nawt]
adjective
  1. lost; ruined.
  2. Archaicworthless; useless.
  3. Obsoletemorally bad; wicked.

I played a little fast and loose with Brett Kavanaugh’s name for the title of this blog post because he personifies that word’s definition now. His Supreme Court nomination appears to be lost and ruined. He will soon be viewed as worthless and useless to the conservative Republican’s cause. And if the accusations are true, he is morally bad and wicked, or at least was at one time. But that is not the problem I have with the Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS nomination.

Here’s Hoping Fantasy Becomes Reality

Another week, another loss for my family fantasy football team as I am now 0-2 in that league. Last week my team lost as the Hurricane Towels with this logo.

Trump Hurricane Paper Towels

Fortunately, Donald Trump’s visit to the hurricane-ravaged areas in the Carolinas this past week did not include tossing paper towels to the victims. Unfortunately, as he passed out meals, he was caught on video telling one victim to “Have a good time.” Yep, if being flooded and losing everything so that you have to accept meals from a career criminal is your cup of tea, I guess it could be a good time.

Week 3 of fantasy football is upon us, so I turned my attention to SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh for inspiration for a new team name. I had considered The KavaNaughties, but I felt that name was a bit too glib, and it trivialized and diminished the seriousness of his alleged felony sexual assault against Dr. Ford. Once again, as a Public Service Message in case Dr. Ford reads this blog (and why wouldn’t she?), I am pleased to mention that there is no statute of limitations for felony sexual assault in the State of Maryland. Just sayin.’

I am happy with the team name I chose that Brett Kavanaugh did inspire.
