Hey Murph! What a 48 hours! I was emotionally spent yesterday! You?

And depressed this morning until Flake’s turnaround.

Howdy. I am early…..good lord….what a roller coaster ride. Had lunch with a local judge. His perspective- the GOP recognizes that SCOTUS control is worth any gambit since it has emerged as both legislature and executive in a world in which gridlock governs the other two branches. Only someone with nothing to lose, like Flake would do as he did.

hi all. Tell me the news – has the committee bowed to FBI investigation?

It did. And so has the Senate as a whole and so has the President.

That’s the thing though, this shoving an attempted rapist onto the highest court in the land is so vicious and immoral, their conviction could be their downfall. If the FBI supports ANY of the claims against Kavanaugh, Murkowski and Collins are out and the GOP is more destroyed than it was.

let it be so, Ad.

PPO – Jeff Flake made a smart maneuver, he voted to pass Kavanaugh from committee to a full vote in The Senate, satisfying Repubs, but declined to vote for Kavanaugh unless the FBI had a week to do an investigation. Very smart threading the needle.

Murph–good to see you. Yeah, it’s been two days of crazy, hasn’t it? I think Flake is just covering his ass; he’ll still vote to seat Kavanaugh.

Ad, a great idea for tomorrow’s music thread would be a tribute to women everywhere. What would we dogs ever do without them?

I think Collins and Murko will hunt with the hounds and run with the hare and then toe the GOP line. All bluff and bluster. No more confidence in their integrity

I do not understand Flake’s motivation entirely…..his rep is one of a real conservative, with strong family/faith roots….he is leaving the Senate, he says, because he cannot stand the environment any longer….so maybe this is last stand on the moral high ground.

FD – The Repubs, especially in the Senate but the House too, are going down! If Kavanaugh gets confirmed anyway, women will turn out like a tsunami in Nov and if not, Repubs will stay home out of discouragement. Heads we win, tails they lose.

Ad–Flake may have delayed the vote for a while, but I’ll be very surprised (and pleased) if Flake, Collins, or Murkowski vote No on Kavanaugh. I’ll also be very surprised if the rapepublicans do anything with the information the FBI uncovers, good or bad.

Murkowski….won reelection against the GOP candidate and owes her political life to independents, tribal peoples, and democrats….Collins is in a state that despises its GOP governor and is very pro choice….

PPO – I think Collins especially but Murkowski too, want to vote for Kavanaugh and have been looking for cover for doing so but without cover, they can’t vote for him without losing their seats in 2020.

X–We all need a 12-step program, but in its absence, we turn to the Planet for sanity and just some good talk!
