This would be a good moment to declare that I have lost all confidence in the American system of government, if I hadn't been saying that for years.

I was also thinking to myself that this fiasco is about the last straw for me and it's time to tune out all things political for the rest of my life. It's just getting too painful to watch in my old age.

And I still might end up doing that but I have to ask myself isn't that exactly what they want me to do?

I generally don't like Lindsey Graham, but he just gave a great oratory.

Uh oh, 3rd accuser now.
Even if you're generally inclined to believe the accuser I think they jumped the shark on this one.

Politics sucks and leaves nothing but ruin in its wake.
I have no argument, especially with your last line.
I wouldn’t want Kavanaugh tried (solely) by the court of public opinion.
(Deleting the rest of my drivel,while it’s still in draft form. It’s all obvious, and I’m sure it’s already been said in this thread, much of which I have not read).

p.s. Booker is kind of a dick, isn’t he?

Senators are supposed to be old. The word shares an etymological root with senile. Well, that was Rome, anyway.

If any of you guys are watching the hearings today, I cannot now imagine that he won't be confirmed, after only 10 minutes of watching.
I saw that it was on when I was at the gym, but I muted it. Can't be distracted during my swoletime!
She was believable.

But so is he. Tough to watch a guy my age cry when talking about his family.
:D It's almost like you would need some evidence to figure this out.

I wish these hearings would focus less on a few rape accusations and more on the serial rape, robbery, spying, kidnapping, murder and torture that Kavanaugh helped our executive branch participate in.

But alas the 4th is dead.
