  1. Though he said he wrote the speech himself, there were significant echoes of 45.

  2. "...'Right now, we are watching one white cisgender man fall apart on national television from the rage, terror, and fear he is experiencing over the loss of his entitlement, his privilege, and his life-time free pass from accountability for his actions,' said CREDO Action Co-Director Heidi Hess in a statement. 'This is a microcosm of how all the intertwined systems and people that maintain systemic misogyny and patriarchy are reacting to losing their power. We are going to win, but they are not going to let go without a fight'..." (Common Dreams).

  3. “…After delivering a flailing, furious, and blatantly partisan opening statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Trump Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly and angrily refused to express support for an FBI investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegations or to encourage his friend Mark Judge to testify when given multiple opportunities to do so by three consecutive Democratic senators.

    “Asked by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) to turn to White House counsel Don McGahn—who was seated in the front row—to demand that the confirmation hearings be suspended for the sake of a full FBI probe, Kavanaugh ducked, dodged, and insisted that he is completely innocent of the multiple sexual assault charges against him despite the lack of a federal investigation. ‘If there is no truth to [Ford's] charges, the FBI investigation will show that. Are you afraid that they might not?’ Durbin asked. Unlike Ford, who said she supports an FBI probe, Kavanaugh refused to answer and accused Durbin of asking a ‘phony question’…” (Common Dreams).

  4. Four Key Takeaways from the Blasey and Kavanaugh Hearing:

    “…Dr. Blasey delivered raw, gripping testimony to the committee.

    “…Judge Kavanaugh was aggressive, tearful and partisan in his own defense.

    “…The committee avoided an Anita Hill moment, but Republicans made their fury known.

    “…All eyes will stay on the undecided senators…” (NY Times).

  5. “…[T]he American Bar Association took the extraordinary step of recommending the Senate Judiciary Committee pause on Kavanaugh's nomination until a FBI probe into the allegations is completed. The association had previously given Kavanaugh a unanimous "well-qualified" rating, its highest rating.’The basic principles that underscore the Senate's constitutional duty of advice and consent on federal judicial nominees require nothing less than a careful examination of the accusations and facts by the FBI,’ said Robert Carlson, president of the organization, in a Thursday night letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein. ‘Each appointment to our nation's Highest Court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote,’ Carlson wrote. ‘Deciding to proceed without conducting additional investigation would not only have a lasting impact on the Senate's reputation, but it will also negatively affect the great trust necessary for the American people to have in the Supreme Court’…” (CNN).

  6. Actually, Kavanaugh's behavior might be a woman's fault. His mother might not have toilet trained him properly. That's a very important thing in the early development of some little boys. If the little boy cannot properly rid himself of waste matter, he grows to be a man who is constantly full of shit.

    1. "...Freud saw the anus is the primary erogenous zone and pleasure being derived from controlling bladder and bowel movement. The major conflict issue during this stage is toilet training. A fixation at this stage can result in a personality that is too rigid or one that is too disordered..." (Sigmund Freud On How Potty Training Contributes To Well-Balanced Adults).
