Your party pulls this crap all of the time and then asks for make-up sex because it is good for the country, ie, good for the Democratic Party. You tried to ruin this guy's life. When you play politics, and put everything on the line, and lose, you have to expect that the consequences are proportional to the position. Well, you guys probably just got screwed. If I were him, I would have been irate too,

If Kav gets confirmed, then I hope he takes special revenge upon your party's hopes and prayers. I hope he takes special pleasure in stopping anything that your party wants his vote for. Payback is a bitch, and if/when he is confirmed, the Democratic party will become his.

Tim

Remember Merrick Garland?

We got your payback right here.

I'm pretty sure it was you that said politics is a contact sport.

No, we ruined it. He will now be known all over the world as a rapist, a drunk, and a liar.
And Republicans will be know for seating a rapist, a drunk, and a liar to the supreme court.
Have a nice day.

Sweet ... I love it

Smear Campaign :: " a planned attempt to harm the reputation of a person or company by telling lies about them" Cambridge Dictionary

please lay out the plan you see. It must start in 1982. Dr Ford (then student Ford) concocted a plan with Democrat strategists knowing that in 2018 Mr Trump would nominate an extremist jurist for the SC. She would then lie in wait coming forth only at the last moment to falsely accuse the nominee of sexual assault. Incredible!

or inconceivable

I suspect every conservative suffers from political paranoia i.e. my words to denote a belief the opposition party is out to get them by nefarious plots and conspiracies.

Democrats mostly are not in favor of J Kavanaugh as he is an extremist, vetted by The Federalist Society, almost specifically to overturn Roe and secondarily to support other right wing agenda issues, as legalization and expansion of religious discrimination against those disfavored by fundamentalist denominations, etc. Democrats could not possibly stop the confirmation as Republicans control the Senate. Except of course to implement the extraordinary conspiracy conceived in 1982 (can you imagine asking a student in 1982 to falsely accuse a fellow student of sexual improprieties some time in the far distant future, which would destroy their life to become the Manchurian accuser? maybe in the fevered mind of a paranoid conservative).

But even more inconceivable is your thought J Kavanaugh once confirmed should begin a vendetta against Democrats. Look ... words are failing me as I think of what you are suggesting. Everything my ancestors fought for - out the frakking window. Everything the Founders thought, wrote, and hoped for - out the frakking window. Sounds like you want a Russian dictatorship as the New American Democracy. Maybe you want to round up Democrats and strap the suicide vests to them.

My God ... what has become of America ... I see madness coming from MA ... destruction of America ... and the author of those thoughts is Tim

Could you provide a short list. I am in need of some serious political education. If Democrats are doing crap, I want to know about it.

Quote:

So should I conclude Republicans would not said anything about ::
1. Pres Clinton getting BJ in WH
2. 7 political investigations into Benghazi
3. Russians surrounding either Clinton or Obama campaigns
4. etc

So what you are saying is don't bring up anything and simply confirm everyone nominated, even rapists, serial killers, tax frauds, etc. After all you wouldn't want to destroy their families.

I would expect those words from 3rd world dictators but not from an American. Am I mistaken in thinking you are an American?

My 13 Revolutionary War veterans would wonder if their blood was worth me reading what you have typed.

It must be nice to occupy the fantasy world you inhabit, Ma. Logic, reality, morality have no role to play. You can make any accusation, allegation, or assumption without reference to reason, reality, fact or consequence. It would, I think, be really funny (in a reality, comeuppance, irony kind of way) of you got to live in a real world as you imagine it to be. But, no. You'll collect your Social Security, apply for Medicare, and take advantage of all those perks Democrats have supplied throughout your lifetime. Of course, if you weren't an entitled, white male, you might see it differently.
