I needed to have a long nap today after reading the news, and it wasn't enough. I need to nap for days, if not until something changes for the better.

You’re going to have to coach something when you start teaching civics. If you can chalk the field soccer might be ok.

Really? It was today that got you? Not the past two years? What’s it take for you to completely lose all hope?

Can't a hopeless person need a nap?

Break into congress and rape Trump's cabinet with a big strap on ***** then we can accuse them of lying when they show us the footage.

To be fair, I don't think we have anyone on the Supreme Court that's some kind of perfect saint. Other than Clarence Thomas of course because I believe in diversity.

He wouldn’t have gotten my job tearing up in the interview like that.

Despite this new hold people to inhumanly high standards with no chance of forgiveness or understanding culture we've molded I don't think anybody out there is a perfect saint. Though, I don't think most people have sexually assaulted others before.

Are we just concluding that Kavanaugh is a rapist despite the clear lack of concrete evidence?

One of things I never really talked about here but basically underlies my entire POV on Kavanaugh is this: guys like Chula voted a dude into office (Bill Clinton) who told us Juanita Broaddrick lied about being raped in 1978. Yet she's stuck by that story and never wavered. Despite that, she is not believed by a lot of people. So if the Dems and their loyal sheep don't believe her, why are they so surprised when the Republicans basically followed the playbook they wrote in the first place in regards to Ford and others?

Despite all that, I'm not somebody who would advocate Bill Clinton going to prison or that he didn't have any right to be President because of those allegations. Being able to corroborate evidence is important, and the recent FBI investigation didn't turn up anything that counteracted the statements others have given (which all amounted to "I don't remember being at a party like Ford described").

If people believe Kavanaugh is a rapist (which I don't think he is), then they should prove it. That's all it comes down to.
