As I told my husband and friends, his mockery of Dr. Ford doesn’t surprise me in the least, which is why it doesn’t bother me. It’s par for the course for so many women who report and it’s par for the course for Trump. Nothing unexpected.

However, Trump has never shot par in his life. Just seemed like the best phrase to use. Think of it as a clever play on words. :)

If only “Teh librul gay mafia is persecuting me!!” didn’t hold so much purchase with the very same “liberal media” that these assholes rail against, to the exclusion of actual sane critique just because it came from ‘libruls’.

We continue to dance on the head of the GOP’s pin because no matter what they do, they’ll get the benefit of the doubt. We won’t. And they always seem to fucking win because of that.

Look at the constant re-litigation of the Civil Rights Movement we’re constantly doing, and apparently losing ground on because of the complete entrenchment of the GOP at ever single level of governance at this point, and likely not getting a lot of those advancements back…hell, if we ever even had them for real at all.

At my rep stefanik whose office argued that “tax cuts will help retirement durrr” and then went silent, only pointing to the bills passed by the reps and hanging up, when I call out that tax cuts generally effect Medicare, medicaid, and social security, and that it directly goes against her commercial for re election.

This is not surprising. At first, they were upset that Kavanaugh was being accused without any corroborating evidence.

Then, after Ford’s very credible testimony, they weren’t sure - Maybe he did it. Certainly, Ford’s sincerely believes he did. They could fall back on ‘innocent until proven guilty’, but in the end they knew that maybe, just maybe, they were going to elevate to the Supreme Court, a guy who threw a 15 year old girl on a bed and sexually assaulted her. That made them uncomfortable, that they couldn’t be certain.

Because the Conservative mindset is unable to tolerate uncertainty, they were not able maintain that uncertainty. It had to be one way, or the other. So, over time, they inevitably became certain that Ford was lying, that Kavanaugh was 100% innocent. The discomfort went away, replaced by the comforting certainty of being attacked by those evil Liberals.

You know, I hate to go all Godwin, but seriously, I can see how Nazi Germany happened. Watching people who try to be fair and think of themselves as rational fall into line behind Trump is frightening.

And although it’s tempting to think that they were always that way and were just hiding it, I’m afraid it’s not that simple. Bret Stephens wrote a piece today, praising Trump - whom he claims to otherwise hate - for standing up to that bully, Christine Blasey Ford. This fight really has united the Right, because it hits all their triggers - the sense of paranoia, the fear of being falsely accused, the certainty that the Left is every bit as bad as Trump. And it works with their need for certainty above and beyond truth.

There’s really no way to absolutely KNOW that Ford’s accusations are true. It ends up requiring you to make a judgement call in the absence of incontrovertible proof. You have to add up the evidence and come to a conclusion, knowing that it is a judgement call, knowing that your conclusion COULD be wrong.

That uncertainty is intolerable to Conservatives. It HAS TO BE one or the other. And concluding that Kavanaugh is innocent satisfies all their deeply held beliefs about meritocracy, about Conservatives being oppressed, and about women becoming too powerful. Once they decide that he’s PROBABLY innocent, the need for certainty drives them to conclude that he’s INCONTROVERTIBLY innocent. All the ambivalence they felt last Thursday washes away, leaving only certainty and incandescent rage that an innocent man has been slandered. And now, there is no way to move them from that position.

This is how it all ends.

Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Manchin’s motivation right now is that he’s comfortably far enough ahead that he’s actually voting what he wants to vote rather than how he’d vote if he felt there was a chance he might lose in November. That all he’s doing now is running up the score by possibly peeling away votes from the GOP.

There was a crime committed in a house.
There were witnesses.
There was knowledge of the person in question being capable of that crime.
When the crime was reported, it was kicked around until it was forgotten.
Except by the victim.
The perp was now in a position to hold one of the most powerful positions in law.
The victim spoke up.
The victim had reported the crime. Took a polygraph.Went to therapy. Told friends.
The accused threw a fit. Accused the victim of lying. His friends and owners piled on.
One after another people came forward verifying what the victim had told.
Yes.
She spoke truth.
So the friends and owners of the accused decided to let the FBI investigate.
They took them to the scene of the crime.
But entered no rooms.
They spoke to neither her or her assailant.
They ignored hundreds of people who attempted to contact them.
They released thousands of pages which the American public was denied access to.
They read these thousands of pages in mere hours.
Nothing.
Nada.
Zip.
Now that the fix is firmly in place the handlers and owners of the accused attack verbally every woman who ever stood up to say NO.
Because the mob never went away.
It moved UP.
Into the goverment, as mobs will when the Rule Of Law is nothing more than printed paper.

Yep. I’d also say it feels like the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, where the winning team starts to get sloppy because they feel confident there’s no way the opposing team can come back to even tie the game, let alone win in the time left on the clock. If they could leave early and just let a staffer vote in their stead, they would.

I am always skeptical of law enforcement. But everything I’ve seen on this screams that this was Trump trying to get one over on everybody. And that those “concerned” Republican Senators just wanted to be able to say “well, we got this from the FBI” without actually caring what was in it. So, yeah, not the FBI’s fault.

Posted this on FB a year ago today, in response to the usual suspects thinking there was something suspicious about the Vegas shooter having a dozen or more guns.

Firing a 100 round magazine non-stop [full auto} through an AR-15 will cause the gas tube to glow cherry red and start to melt. Continuous 30 round bursts will make the gun so hot it will malfunction in short order. It takes much longer for the gun to cool than it does to fire the magazine. That is the likely reason the Vegas shooter had a dozen rifles. He was alternating them while they cooled.

This is not surprising. At first, they were upset that Kavanaugh was being accused without any corroborating evidence.

Then, after Ford’s very credible testimony, they weren’t sure - Maybe he did it. Certainly, Ford’s sincerely believes he did. They could fall back on ‘innocent until proven guilty’, but in the end they knew that maybe, just maybe, they were going to elevate to the Supreme Court, a guy who threw a 15 year old girl on a bed and sexually assaulted her. That made them uncomfortable, that they couldn’t be certain.

Because the Conservative mindset is unable to tolerate uncertainty, they were not able maintain that uncertainty. It had to be one way, or the other. So, over time, they inevitably became certain that Ford was lying, that Kavanaugh was 100% innocent. The discomfort went away, replaced by the comforting certainty of being attacked by those evil Liberals.

yup

he has to be 100% innocent
otherwise it’s possible
