I'VE INVITED MIKE ROSEN ON TO DISCUSS HIS TAKE ON THE KAVANAUGH HEARING Why? Because I am guessing his perspective on things is going to be much different than mine.
THE THE HECK DID JEFF FLAKE JUST DO? Did Jeff Flake just open the door to an FBI investigation? He voted yes on the nomination but only on the condition that the FBI conduct a one week investigation into the allegations. But does he have the juice to do this? He certainly has created a problem for the GOP unless they told him to do it. Don't doubt that could have happened.
NOW HERE ARE A BUNCH OF ARTICLES AND COLUMNS YOU CAN READ ON YESTERDAY'S HEARING Most of which I will present without comment because I have my own opinions and these are just more opinions.
BYRON YORK SAYS SHELDON WHITEHOUSE IS A JOKE OF HIS OWN MAKING Read it here.
THIS COLUMN SAYS FORD IS BELIEVABLE BECAUSE SHE CAN'T REMEMBER Read it here.
THIS ONE SAYS FORD IS UNBELIEVABLE BECAUSE SHE CAN'T REMEMBER Read it here.
THE NEW YORK TIMES SAYS KAVANAUGH IS TOO ANGRY ABOUT BEING ACCUSED OF GANG RAPE Read their editorial here.
HERE MICHAEL BARONE DISPELS THE NOTION THAT JUDICIAL TEMPERAMENT MATTERS HERE And It's a rationale I had not thought of. Read it here.
THIS COLUMNIST SAYS FEINSTEIN PLAYED FORD LIKE A FIDDLE OVER ABORTION Read it here.
HERE IS A COLUMN BY A WOMAN WHICH CONFIRMS WOMEN CAN'T THINK RATIONALLY Because she has an entire column about how she was filled with rage and anger as a sexual assault survivor watching Dr. Ford testify "for all of us". That is all that it takes for her to decide Brett Kavanaugh is guilty, guilty, guilty. I'm sorry for her assault, but when she admitted she turned the tv off after Ford testified, she demonstrated that her column is nothing more than an emotional outburst to be taken as such.
LINDSAY GRAHAM WON THE WHOLE HEARING WITH THIS OUTBURST And he is 100% correct.
THE PROSECUTOR WHO ASKED QUESTIONS OF DR. FORD SAYS SHE WOULD NOT PROSECUTE Based on the claims of Dr. Ford. I do have to say that based on the standard laid out previously where you can have a bunch of evidence but as long as the were no intent to break the law(i.e. Hillary Clinton's emails) it's hard to argue that there is enough here to prosecute. Read it here.
GEORGE W IS TRYING TO DRUM UP SUPPORT FOR KAVANAUGH He's calling undecided Senators to urge them to confirm Kavanaugh. We'll see if it works.
