"The consequences will extend long past my nomination."

Yeah, we know. That's why you can never sit in the SCOTUS.
That's why you were never supposed to sit in the SCOTUS.
That is why you must never be allowed to sit in the SCOTUS.

I think Grassley is about to have a stroke.

Dr. Ford is the worst possible witness for the GOP: She is a credible victim as well as an expert in the psychology of memory, trauma, PTSD, etc. They can't impeach her. Kav looks like a spoiled entitled rich brat throwing a tantrum next to her. If they confirm him anyway, they are doomed in November. When the Democratic House opens investigations that DO subpoena all witnesses of all events, etc. Kav is disgraced.

They should do him the favor of not confirming him now so he doesn't have to commit suicide later. He can just go back to being an appeals court judge. Confirming him destroys him.

People used to have more sense about skeletons in their closet, and keeping a low profile.

I'm seeing that Donald Trump's week at the UN is going no better than Brett Kavanaugh's hearing.

Republicans are certainly entertaining.

Well, that's the problem with being an idiot. You can convince other idiots that everything is hunky-dory, but eventually reality comes a-knocking. This is the time that competent con-men skip town.

It seems clear from what I have been able to watch so far that Mitchell, the prosecutor that Republicans brought in to act as fig leaf, believed Dr. Ford. That's when the GOP kangaroos decided they had to take over. She might have secured an indictment before the grand jury retired.
