Repeat because on topic:

The GOP knows that if they back down, they will lose face among supporters, and these people are known to hold a grudge.

They know that they will lose support among moderates, but they are counting on these people being fickle and having a short enough memory that they can be won back over.

So given this lose-lose situation, they will go with the option that gets their Man of Choice in for life and worry about damage control later.

I saw a great documentary on PBS last night, “Dark Money”.

There’s some generalized background on how dark money PACs work, what they do and how and why, and how they neutered the FEC, but the framing story is a specific Montana case (with some diversions to Scott Walker and Wisconsin).

“Conservatives” never existed. It’s what our right-wing authoritarians call themselves when civilized people are in power. It’s a mask.

As a musician playing in night club bands long ago in Hawaii, I saw way more than my share of bar fights and there’s nothing glamorous or exciting about them, trust me.

My first concern was always just getting out of the way.

Rather than ask why it is that women’s lives would be so much different if they simply didn’t have to worry about being attacked, Nichols focuses on the mechanism by which that would come about, and gets all ‘NotAllMen’ about the concept.

A New Front in the Kavanaugh Wars: Temperament and Honesty (NYT)

WASHINGTON — Democratic efforts to highlight sexual assault charges that are more than 30 years old have been dismissed by supporters of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh as the dredgings of ancient history. But the judge’s response to those accusations has raised new issues that go to the core of who President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee is right now: his truthfulness, his partisanship and his temperament.

For Democrats determined to derail Judge Kavanaugh, his performance last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee — his dissembling about his teenage years; his playing down drinking in high school and college; his raw, angry emotions; and his broadsides against Democratic questioners — is proving to be a new avenue of attack, if the accusations of sexual assault are not enough to swing the votes of three key Republicans and two undecided Democrats.

My father died when I was young and I grew up with just my mom and older sister. I learned that women were to be respected and treated properly and could never in my life force myself on a woman who was not interested or think of using violence to settle a dispute or get my way.

I succeeded twice. The third time I ended up with a bloody nose.

Heh.

Unfortunately, about the one constant principle of Donald Trump’s business career has been that no matter how malodorous his “deals”, he has always been sure to hire enough lawyers/PR flacks/toadies to spray enough of the “perfume” Sweet Smell Of Success* to mask the stink. Even if just long enough for the air to clear (and The Donald make away with a bundle).

One time in a bar restroom, two guys on either side of me started mouthing off at each other, then one of them pulled a knife. I got out of there fast! One time leaving a bar some guy started mouthing off at me, and I walked away. I haven’t been in a fight since elementary school.

HappyWarrior  Oct 2, 2018 • 12:42:15pm

I’ve been in fights, done stupid shit when drunk, I’m not proud of them. I can only hope to learn from them. The thing though is Kavanaugh is a guy IMO who has abused alcohol for much of his life probably. And it got covered up as he moved up the ladder. I honestly could live with some of it if he hadn’t hurt women like Dr. Ford because of his drinking but it’s the lack of accountability. It’s the lies. It’s the lashing out DID YOU at a senator whose father is a recovering alcoholic. It’s the phony self-righteousness he went after Bill Clinton with. It’s that he really had no business getting a judgeship in the first place in 2006. It’s how he continues to very much be the same guy who is remembered as a nasty drunk. I don’t know if he still drinks or not but he hasn’t learned. Does he deserve to be impoverished because of it? No, but he shouldn’t be trusted with the Supreme Court.

I got attacked once by a drunk guy, while drunk in downtown Chicago, but not at a bar. I restrained him using minimal force, and got arrested for protecting myself, when in many states I could have legally shot my attacker. Not that I’d want to shoot the guy. I’m pretty sure that would fuck me up for life.

Don’t know if I should link to it or not but Wittes has decided that Kavanaugh wouldn’t get his vote if he were a Senator. I think Wittes early on in this whole fiasco let his personal friendship and like of the man get in the way. And you know I honestly get that, we want our friends to do well which is probably why so many of those people signed that statement. I’m not excusing that mind you. But I think so many people formed a positive impression of Kavanaugh from either working with him on the Clinton shenanigans, in the Bush WH, or for him in his current job as a judge. He obviously isn’t an asshole all the time. And I think when you form friendships, you ignore things in someone that you wouldn’t in someone you disliked or even were neutrally disposed to. And I think that happened here. I think at the end of the day, Kavanaugh did perjure himself and there needs to be some repercussions for that and he definitely doesn’t belong on SCOTUS. I just hope he can make genuine amends to the people he’s hurt because of his drinking. Whether that takes total sobriety or reflection, that’s up to him but he needs to do that rather than get a lifelong appointment to SCOTUS or his current job.

I’ll link to it. It’s a reasonable read.

Wittes caught a lot of flak for defending Kavanaugh after his earlier hearing. His is a valid viewpoint, and he saw something different in Kavanaugh from what many of us saw. Plus, you know, Wittes is also a big friend of Comey, who has his own flaws.

This reads as heartfelt, and heartwrenching, and I think it’s a good take for any moderates or Conservatives who care more about the country than the GOP.

It was inevitable that Trump would nominate at least one Supreme Court Justice, that his nominees would be terrible for progressive causes, and that given the composition of the Senate that we’d be powerless to stop it. Kavanaugh is something different, and Wittes gets to the heart of that.

Thanks man. One of my reasonable conservative friends linked to it. She hates Trump but she’s definitely not crossing our way anytime soon. But you’re right. Kavanaugh would be something different. It’s almost why while I would oppose the nomination, I could kind of live with someone more ideologically conservative but more ethical and less partisan motivated than Kavanaugh. I don’t think Amy Barrett is that person tbh but there’s gotta be some conservative judge somewhere that fits that.

It was a good thing my gym card had fallen off earlier in the week due to flimsiness not anything I did. I’ll freely admit here that I’ve done stupid shit. Not anything illegal but shit I would be understandably uncomfortable talking about in the Senate which is why if I ever made it as far as Kavanaugh, I would probably respectfully ask that my name be withdrawn from consideration.

My favorite Ebay listing - seller placed a watch on the platen of a scanner. HORRIBLE pictures, but good enough for me to know it was a model that, when cleaned up nicely, goes for >$60 routinely.

I got it for $8. Case, dial, and hands in excellent condition. Movement cleaned up well*, and I saved about $50 on one of the more iconic Elgins of the 1950s.

*After I got rid of an Exxon Valdez worth of oil - why do some people think a watch will run better if you fill it with oil?

538’s House election forecast has trended towards Republicans since September 30, three days after the Kavanaugh hearings this past Thursday. The same thing has been happening in their Senate forecast. It’s too early to say this is a trend, but Greg Sargent has said that the GOP’s strategy in defending Kavanaugh is “pure Trumpism” - angrily defending the accused, and denouncing the mere suggestion of wrongdoing, as Trump did when his 19 accusers came forward, and after the Access Hollywood tape dropped.

Republicans and right wingers LOVE this shit - standing up to the “libs” and “Feminazis.” Ultimately, it worked for them in 2016, and they seem to be banking on it working again this year.

I’m sure there will be. I had no idea what was going on the first time I got an alert buzzer from my phone years ago. My phone had never made that awful noise before.

I did not get a phone to give other people the ability to use it as an alert system, and had not heard about the alerts. I’m not opposed to them, but it was surprising to me.

Like many here, I guess that I never had any interest in getting hit in the back of head with a heavy beer mug, or stuck in the face with the shattered end of a bottle or glass.

Like a few here, I have had to settle up and quickly leave a place or two when I have seen the start of one. And not gone back to that particular bar. This happened more than once back when I was in the Army in Oklahoma and Arkansas.

A friend who was an enlisted man in the marines (in the 1970’s) used to talk about how his squad, as a group, would take a new squad member to a bar and get him drunk. If the new member got drunk and became a fighting drunk, they would do their best to keep him away from alcohol. And definitely never invite him to go drinking with them.

So, yes, if I knew somebody was a fighting drunk, I would make it a point to not go drinking with him (or her). And if they think that makes me less of man, I am fine with that.

I’ve read several pieces where ‘Republicans who hate Trump’ are said to be outraged at the treatment of Kavanaugh.

And of course, I’ve read a LOT MORE THINGS where women are outraged by the continued defenses of Kavanaugh.

In the end, I guess it depends on who’s more motivated.

If women would just deny Republicans the ability to reproduce it would solve this problem, but Republican women seem to be into being oppressed.

re: #60 thecommodore

538’s House election forecast has trended towards Republicans since September 30, three days after the Kavanaugh hearings this past Thursday. The same thing has been happening in their Senate forecast. It’s too early to say this is a trend, but Greg Sargent has said that the GOP’s strategy in defending Kavanaugh is “pure Trumpism” - angrily defending the accused, and denouncing the mere suggestion of wrongdoing, as Trump did when his 19 accusers came forward, and after the Access Hollywood tape dropped.

Republicans and right wingers LOVE this shit - standing up to the “libs” and “Feminazis.” Ultimately, it worked for them in 2016, and they seem to be banking on it working again this year.

This exactly. But it requires the GOP to hold both houses. (Unless Parscale and the Mercers can get the Russians to successfully hack every House race.)

Heh.

Unfortunately, about the one constant principle of Donald Trump’s business career has been that no matter how malodorous his “deals”, he has always been sure to hire enough lawyers/PR flacks/toadies to spray enough of the “perfume” Sweet Smell Of Success* to mask the stink. Even if just long enough for the air to clear (and The Donald make away with a bundle).

*usually out of their asses, but who’s going to notice??

It appears that hasn’t changed. Trump’s lawyers are now threatening the NY Times saying they are reporting bogus statements on Trump’s business wealth and they are going to sue, sue and sue some more.

I think they need to realize Trump is now less than a paper tiger when it comes to those threats to sue.

Thanks man. One of my reasonable conservative friends linked to it. She hates Trump but she’s definitely not crossing our way anytime soon. But you’re right. Kavanaugh would be something different. It’s almost why while I would oppose the nomination, I could kind of live with someone more ideologically conservative but more ethical and less partisan motivated than Kavanaugh. I don’t think Amy Barrett is that person tbh but there’s gotta be some conservative judge somewhere that fits that.

I wonder if Kavanaugh was such an UB40 fan that when he saw the guy he thought was the lead singer he started staring at the guy wanting to get his attention so he could go up to him and hang with him.

The guy got weirded out by the attention and said something like “leave me alone” and Kavanaugh got belligerent and started mouthing off and the next thing you know the guy got sick of his shit and took a swing at Kavanaugh.

I bartended at a punk club in Downtown Houston to pay for college. It was the place where frat boys and rich assholes went to observe what they thought were deviants in their natural habitat.

Fights were ALWAYS started by some frat boy or rich asshole pushing one of the regulars. Every…fucking…time. And instead of breaking them up we’d let the regular give the guy a couple of good punches and kicks with their Docs before we’d save them. No need to rush.

Based upon some points in the Kavanaugh story. (And admittedly, some assumptions on things that I have seen)
- he apparently would go in with a group of ‘friends’ rather than go one on one
- that this was not their first time (think the Rehoboth mention)
- they would select a victim (stared at one man to the point he told them to cut it out)
- they would swarm that chosen victim. (In a crowded bar, 3 or 4 people standing around can prevent friends from reaching the victim to assist him. And take potshots when the victim is distracted by others.)

You know, speaking of drinking age, one thing from Kavanaugh’s testimony struck me. He indicated MD’s drinking age was 18 that summer (1982), which may be true, but also irrelevant, since he was 17.

But the other thing is, the way Maryland raised its drinking age to 21 was by making it so that nobody born after June 30, 1964 would be allowed to drink till they were 21. Kavanaugh, having been born in 1965, would have been KEENLY AWARE of that, so much so that even today he’d surely remember it - legal drinking would have continuously receded before him for 5 years.

So, to say ‘the drinking age was 18 then’, it’s a remarkable bit of misdirection, which he didn’t need to do. He could have just said, “Sure, we were underage, and we drank anyway”, and nobody would have thought worse of him.

The name of the series is 1983. Here’s a bit more about it:

Poland’s first original Netflix series, ‘1983’, is shaping up to something pretty special if this teaser is anything to go by.

Directed by Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland, ‘1983’ follows a fascinating premise that’s not a million miles away from the likes of ‘The Man In The High Castle’ or Robert Harris’ ‘Fatherland’. Set in an alternative Poland twenty years after a terrorist attack changed the course of history and kept the Iron Curtain standing across Europe, an idealistic law student stumbles across a decades-long conspiracy that threatens to upend years of totalitarian rule in the country.

Hey OA if you’re here. But did Brandon Guyer make the Tribes’ playoff roster? If he did. Your team is my team this postseason but regardless they’re going to be my AL pick/hope. If not though, I may have to root for Colorado or Milwaukee.

A minor point and a day late: I want to return to the John Oliver takedown of Kavanaugh this Sunday: after much thought, I found Oliver’s treatment of the calendar needlessly cruel and unfair. For whatever reason, the father decided having a detailed calendar was a useful tool for the family and it was important to Brett to emulate his father. It does not help our cause when we mock someone who was a teenager at the time for trying to live up to his father’s expectations and model himself in his father’s footsteps. It remains important to Brett; we shouldn’t abandon compassion.

I don’t even know anymore honestly. Most people I know thought he was a bit of an obnoxious asshole even in 2005 when he made the GWB remark. My joke was more that Kanye only cares about Kanye.

I agree that we shouldn’t abandon compassion, but I think Bront was taking advantage of any compassion out there when he tried to portray his emulation of his father with the calendar as something that would make his testimony more believable. It didn’t. The tears only made it worse. He was taking advantage of his father’s good name (making an assumption here that this has some validity) to defend his own sullied name.

Some weather guy claims that Swetnick approached him at a bar—leading him to immediately believe she was a prostitute, because he’s fat. He alleges that she is an “opportunist”; that in contacting Swetnick’s father to get Swetnick’s phone number, the father relayed that she had psychological problems; several references to the author of the letter being a Democrat; and finishing up with the grand finale that he doesn’t believe Swetnick for no particular reason other than she’s a slut, since the author apparently doesn’t know Kavanaugh at all.

Oh, copious references to him being a blubbering Christian who was really torn on whether to disclose this information to his new-ish wife.

Pretty reprehensible letter, all in all. Doesn’t really address what happens to Swetnick if she’s lying, but that’s just a minor detail.

That’s why I’d be very surprised if he came here. The race between Cruz and Beto is very tight and he’s not going to risk being attached to a Cruz loss.

Plus he can’t go anywhere near the cities.

He is being considered. He has a sore shoulder, so it may be iffy. He usually shares right field with Melky Cabrera and Francona likes him against lefties.

I expect him if he is okay to play.

It’s gonna be a tough series against the Astros. But we played them fairly tough this year.

So is the Cruz/Beto race really THAT tight?
And the TX GOP doesn’t think a Royal Progresse by the Orange Emperor wouldn’t boost Rafael’s chances ?

Heh. Autocorrect suggested “chancres”

He had no knowledge, direct or indirect, of what happened in the 1980’s and so is irrelevant to the actual matter. Indeed, the psychological problems that her father alluded to could very well have arisen because of trauma she experienced when she was in high school. But that’s pure speculation on my part. Really disgraceful letter.
