The thing that fixes America is reversing Citizens United. The thing that can do that is the Supreme Court. With the current makeup and Trump naming at least one more justice, that's unlikely to get fixed for at least a decade, probably longer.

People who treat Bill Kristol as a hero now are retarded. He's a conman trying to make up for his horrific views by suddenly being "enlightened"

He and Schlapp are no different except Bill still wants to be liked.

Not treating as a hero.

The only good thing about Kristol is his godawful views are at least somewhat consistent. All the neocons should despise Trump, but most of them fell in line because they don't actually have conviction in their beliefs.

Not you, bruv. Just a few hypocrites over at MSNBC. Kristol wants to be back in the spotlight and he knows he has to change his tune dramatically.

I've had a few DM convos with Bill (Twitter is a weird place) a few years back, he's personally a polite man willing to listen, but he's still the quintessential Bush neocon in a Michael Moore hat.

Same with Max Boot. He's trying to be "woke" and "regretful"

The minotity currently in power in that country is fucked. That minority will only grow ever more smaller minority. Their future is either an apartheid state or a fair, workable pluralism. And an apartheid state isn’t long term sustainable.

Supreme Court justices can be impeached by Congress. His statements yesterday can and will be investigated and evidence that he lied will come out. When that happens, the GOP congress that steamrolled his nomination for partisan reasons will be completely discredited. Fuckers are all exposed now. Prove he lied and bring down the house of cards.

Gop have, I think, so overextended themselves with Trump in the white house and now steamrolling a rapist to the scotus that it can all come down in one fell swoop. Furkers have far overeached to try to keep their minority rule for a little while longer.

Exactly. Neantherthal white mens can’t keep both ethnic minorities AND wominz down. Gop loses even a little bit more of the ladies vote and they are toast. In fact, not even sure you have to « prove » Kavanaugh lied, sufficient number of ladies and sympathetic mens may have simply been put off by the whole afair as is to wipe out the GOP.

This is all good, fellows. GOP is reaching the limits of its individualist and self interest to the max philosophy. The ideology itself contains the seeds of its own destruction.

I think Flake (and probably some other moderate Republicans not on the committee) are surprised and shaken that merely humoring listening to Ford was not sufficient cover for confirming the nomination.

So, after a week of investigation...they just drop all leads? Doesn’t make sense. These are crimes and can be investigated independently of congress’ mandate in this instance. Can also (and surely will be) privately investigated by journos and left funded groups. You can’t put this genie back in the box. Any Kav lie they can prove (and he’s already been so callous as to go on tv to make allegations he had to walk back from almost immediately) will make senators that confirm him look terrible. I think Flake and co are signaling « second thoughts » about confirming and looking for a way out.

Any Kav lie they can prove (and he’s already been so callous as to go on tv to make allegations he had to walk back from almost immediately) will make senators that confirm him look terrible. I think Flake and co are signaling « second thoughts » about confirming and looking for a way out.



Flake doesn't care. He just doesn't want to piss off his moderate electorate or the GOP/donors. If punting to an investigation ends the nomination in a way that's not him voting against it, he's happy.

The words, "He had a god-damned FBI investigaton! What more do you want?" will be a staple go-to for republicans for years to come.

What that FBI investigation entails is rather less impressive than its title.


    ● Voluntary interviews
    ● Voluntary document production
    ● No search warrants
    ● No grand jury subpoenas
    ● Witnesses can refuse to co-operate
    ● Others can refuse to co-operate

I think the larger problem for everyone here is the GOP may come back with a whole bunch of evidence that he perjured himself. I also suspect FBI agents may take this seriously due to the fact that they probably aren't huge fans of Kav's views on executive immunity.

So, after a week of investigation...they just drop all leads? Doesn’t make sense. These are crimes and can be investigated independently of congress’ mandate in this instance. Can also (and surely will be) privately investigated by journos and left funded groups. You can’t put this genie back in the box.

Flake isnt running again. This is it for him in the senate.
