    So the President nominates a judge for a vacant SCOTUS position. The President is in the majority party along with this nominee, who could not possibly be any more clearly a deeply partisan zealout with no gray area left open for interpretation. As soon as this nominee begins speaking in front of a committee/camera, the sky cracks open and God himeslf dumps an an Olympic-sized swimming pool's worth of skeletons directly on top of this guy. Red flags are blotting out the sun. The flashing neon signs are burning out from overexertion.

    All of this happens and an entire half of the country is totally on board with their party responding to these events by... trying to jam through this nomination more quickly than they've ever done anything before, at any cost? In what conceivable universe can a person who knows even the slightest hint of how the US government works not be outraged?

    Because it bears repeating: their response to... 'unflattering' information from this guy's past is "Shit, we need to get this done ASAP" not the reasonable/expected response of "Let's look at this" and people are still able to support this shit? Christ, is there anything these people won't sacrifice to 'win'? I guess it's hard not to push all the boundaries until they break when the group that's meant to be a counter-balance can't stop eating each other for the length of an election cycle.

    Well, at the very least we can rest easy in knowing that this guy is definitely a regular human being who probably doesn't feel terrible pain when he puts all of his effort into twisting his face into something that other humans could recognize as a smile.



    P.S. Have you boofed yet?

    I think there's a couple reasons why they're so invested in Kavanaugh...

    First is just pure ideology. I think a lot of people forget this, including me: Ideology always wins every time. Clearly, the only thing they care about is the fact that this guy is on the far right and they can count on him to vote the way they want. That's all that matters. Just like they didn't care about Trump bragging about sexual assault. A guy can get a pass on just about anything if he promises to represent the kind of politics they want.

    But in addition to that, they probably don't want to to continue setting this precedent where a politician's career can be torpedoed by bringing to light a history of abuse, because in their minds, who knows who might be next? If this can happen to Kavanaugh, it can happen to anyone. It already just happened with Roy Moore. The possibilities are endless given that these fucking rotten abusive asshole are EVERYWHERE. Political campaigns cost a fortune and it takes a very long time to build a career, so they don't want this becoming the norm and potentially fucking up everything. This could end up gutting half their party. So they want to push Kavanaugh as a way to send a message, to clamp down on this rapidly growing idea that their personal history matters.

    This presser right now has to be the most off the rails thing yet. And no...I mean it. That's not hyperbole. They didn't give this asshole a script for this? He keeps interrupting reporters...he's fuckin' lost out there hahahaha.

    Gee, I wonder why they don't want Trump to sit down with Mueller.

    To be fair, this could end up gutting half of WASHINGTON, not just the GOP. Honestly, I feel like one of the safest ways to avoid putting absolute shitbag humans with sexually abusive pasts into office is voting for more women.

    Yes, #notallmen, whatever. Statistically though, I think you're much more likely to find a decent human being if you look for candidates without a dick.

    Hey, here's a radical plan that I've been following for most of my life: don't be an asshole.

    After telling a female reporter she 'never thinks', the White House actually changed the official transcript from "you're never thinking" to "you're never thanking". Article.

    These people are the filth of humanity.

    I take issue with the stuff he says at the start, about socialism, because the tariff wars and protectionism he’s engaged in sounds pretty socialist to me.

    now now @WorzelG , that's dangerously close to actually knowing what constitutes left/right. These days you are supposed to have a half baked, highly selective and partisan "understanding" of politics divined from youtube videos and memes

    I’ve lost it lately with what people support, it’s just really confusing and really has degenerated into pure insular hatred of foreigners (not just talking about the US here, but the US is so varied in population and was such a melting pot for differing cultures, I don’t really get the hypocrisy)

    If you're Donald Trump, the idea that you're expected not to sexually assault people probably is scary. The idea that you might be held accountable for it is scarier.

    Donald Trump: Young men should be scared, they might get punished for raping women!
    Anyone with some common sense: Ummmmmmmmm........................

For anyone that thinks this is an exaggeration, that's what it's called when the executive branch removes any opposition from power. If there is no one left to hold the Trump administration accountable for their crimes, their lies, and their failures to carry out their duties, we will be in a full-fledged dictatorship.

    They will point to the non-GOP that hold office, but as long as there are not enough of them to sway a vote, they serve no real purpose other than a shield the GOP can hid behind. And with the security measures to keep the midterm elections from being hacked having been shot down by the republicans, there's a chance that they will be able to keep their party in power through nefarious means as well. Trump's first Saturday Night Massacre happened last year, and no one did anything about it. The GOP will do nothing about it this time either. It's up to you.

    If you have friends or family members who are still republicans, it's now imperative that you try to change that. This goes beyond trying to keep the peace at family get-togethers, this is the future of the US, and that's more important than your familial relations. I'm willing to burn any bridge I have with my ignorant family members if it means getting even a couple to stand against this. I hope many of you are too.
    Settle down. You're getting hysterical. It's not that bad. I heard the same thing back during Bush Jr's terms.

    Itís just so messed up. I thought he was handling it really well for him until yesterday when heís like women are fine. Then mocking her. I just canít even find a way to properly express my dismay for this. Everything seems to be going backwards and getting fucked up and it feels like thereís no way to stop it.

    Are women above being mocked?

    My mistake. I thought the mocking comment was referring to a journalist.

    And don't you have anything better to do with your time? Let's think about this objectively. On a Nine Inch Nails message board on a weekday morning in a random political thread trying to troll just to get a rise out of people.

    That's your life.
