Judge Shredder

Brett Kavanaugh was, as expected, evasive in most of the questions presented to him that didn't involve his favorite writing utensil (sigh) but it was his use of the word "hypothetical" in the following subjects that stood out:

Is the pre-existing clause of the ACA illegal: Hypothetical

Must a sitting president respond to a subpoena: Hypothetical

Can a sitting president be indicted: Hypothetical

Can a president pardon himself: Hypothetical


If t-Rump doesn't allow the FBI to re-open its investigation of Kavanaugh then this nomination is as illegitimate as this presidency.


Brett Kavanaugh's experience with young women seems to boil down to:

1. Sexually assaulting them.
2. Deciding if they can have a legal abortion.

That's not a judge. That's a Puritan who'd punish women for being witches if he could.


The Brett Kavanaugh hearing is a job interview. That's really all it is.

Now think: Would YOU hire a guy to head your legal department who will only let you see 10% of his resume? And who, in the middle of the interview, had someone accuse him of sexual assault? And let's not forget his references, especially the guy who's famous for dealing closely with the Russian mafia.

Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't hire to pitch hay to horses.


You ever get the notion that Republicans think this Supreme Court judge-selection thing would be SO much easier if young women would simply allow themselves to be sexually assaulted and then never say a word about it?


"The Senate GOP was 100% OK with having only 8 Justices sitting when Obama was the one nominating. McConnell and cronies even suggested they would delay 4 more entire years if Hillary won the election. So any claim of urgency now is merely more hypocrisy/lies." - Tony Coletti


Reagan's Iran-Contra scandal resulted in many convictions of top-level aides, almost all of whom were pardoned by George H.W. Bush.

Robert Mueller seems to be taking an approach in the Russia investigation that actually prevents t-Rump from pardoning the guilty as he slowly closes the noose on the Great Orange Quisling's corpulent neck.

Go get 'em, Bob!


The GOP arbitrarily changed the rules of SCOTUS selection, hid important information about Kavanaugh behind a "constitutional" smoke screen, and then continued to back the man even though there's allegations of sexual assault in his past.

Kavanaugh is not a judge. He's a nuke aimed at the heart of this republic and the GOP can't wait to detonate him.


I am the Red Hen. I am Maxine Waters. I am Patricia Okoumou. I am Kristin Mink. I am Robert De Niro. I am David Hogg. I am Emma Gonzelez. I am Mike Avenetti. I am Stormy Daniels. I am Rachel Maddow. I am Pickaxe Guy. I am LeBron James. I am Robert Mueller. I am Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I am Peter Strzok. I am Elizabeth Warren. I am Heather Heyer.  I am Beto O'Rourke. I am Andrew Gillum. I am Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. I am Botham Jean. I am Plaid Shirt Guy. I am Ronan Farrow. I am Christine Blasey Ford.

Fuck Trump.

Senator: will you support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic?
Kavanaugh: I'm sorry. I don't deal in hypotheticals.

Kavanaugh's like a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, shoved up Chuck Grassley's asshole.
