Politics is more bitter in 2018 than it has been since 1860. (And it’s the same party driving the controversy: Democrats!)

Max Weller: “Remembering” alone is insufficient. How about proof meeting the legal standard?
N.L.: That’s my point. We’ve got a massive, governmental version of he said, she said and there’s no way to prove anything. For this, they’re willing to ruin a man’s life and reputation. I have a daughter, and I want her to feel empowered to report anything close to a sexual attack and be taken seriously. I also have a son, and I don’t want him to live in fear that someone after the fact, with no date, place or even details, can accuse him of some horrific crime – and he can have his life upended simply because she said so.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford
This Bette Davis-inspired performance would be worthy of an Oscar nomination, if it were in a movie. It should remind all of us that members of the mental health professions (Dr. Ford is a psychologist) may suffer more often from mental health disorders than the general population. See Why Shrinks Have Problems published in Psychology Today.
Granted, the Homeless Philosopher is NOT a shrink. Still, I know crazy when I see it, and I see it not only in Dr. Ford and the other accusers of Judge Kavanaugh, but in their rabid supporters as well.
Frankly, I see no long-term political gain for the Democratic Party. Delaying a floor vote on the confirmation in the Senate, to wind up with an inconclusive FBI investigation, only moves the latest Dem FAIL that much closer to the mid-term elections. Also, in the grand scheme of things, ensuring a conservative-leaning SCOTUS for decades to come is far more important than whether or not Nancy Pelosi once again picks up the gavel in the U.S. House.
BTW, I’ve never seen the moderate Republican senator from South Carolina so fired up over anything: Lindsey Graham erupts during Kavanaugh hearing.
It’s time for this senile old fool, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), to retire. And she should take Justice Ginsburg with her!
There is an element of hilarity here, as there nearly always is in politics. Some of the more unhinged Dems believe that defeating Kavanaugh means that the Senate will then take up the already-failed nomination by President Obama of Merrick Garland (every time I hear his name, I think about Christmas decorations). WTF? Put down the crack pipe!
