    Some folks are only gonna learn the hard way: #ETTD (Everything Trump touches dies). This is one time I've got to agree with Carl. I'm seeing too much of this sort of thing from white journalbros. They just keep telling on themselves.

    What's amazing is that Kavanaugh's defenders have claimed that Ford is smearing an innocent man with false allegations so in order to defend him they...smear an innocent man with false allegations, essentially using the "all white people look alike" approach.

    Right? Her sitting up there talking about "sisterhood?" Ugh. Just stahp.

    Going back to Hirono's comment that men should shut up and stand up, I know what she meant but framing this as men vs. women ignores how many men are victims of sexual abuse too. Look at Jim Jordan who turned a blind eye to hundreds of abused men at OSU. When we make this about men vs women we lump male victims in with their victimizers.

    That's the Narcissistic Personality Disorder. He can't admit he was wrong. The only way Kavanaugh is out is if he chooses to withdraw.

    Let's get clear here. Nobody's jumping to Ellison's defense. This isn't about there being no proof. This is about the accuser saying she has proof and refusing to produce it. Most women don't have that option. There's no proof about Kavanaugh because is incident happened decades ago but even then we have her therapist's notes and remarks that she's made to loved ones over the years. These two situations are not remotely comparable. I'm just trying to figure out if your insistence that they are is ignorance or trolling. I actually think it will be worse. Back then the GOP tried to pretend they were decent people. Now they've fully embraced cruelty and deviance.

    That's some epic whataboutism. Ellison's accuser claims she has a video of him assaulting her but she refuses to produce it. Do you know how many women out there wish they had incontrovertible proof of what happened to them? That doesn't make any sense but it brings up a good point. There are plenty of conservative judges out there without all the baggage of Kavanaugh but they want this one because of Trump.

    He hasn't been discharged. He's been removed from the rescue effort and they've started an investigation. There's a whole long process before he gets kicked out, assuming he does.

    The thing I love most about the Manafort deal is the asset forfeiture. Mueller's investigation just paid for itself. In fact it can fund itself well into 2019 and that's just from Manafort. Once they start going after the Trump/Kushner crowd this thing with make a pretty nifty profit.

    If Trump pardons Manafort then he gets hit with state charges and the fact that he accepted the pardon will be used as evidence against him. He also loses Fifth Amendment protection which means he has to answer all questions about Trump honestly or get hit with perjury charges so he ends up in jail anyway. Or worse they extradite him to the Ukraine which would be a death sentence.

    Given the recent polling, I'm cautiously optimistic about November. Trump's polling with independents has gone into the toilet. It started happening after the Manafort conviction and Cohen guilty pleas and the Nat'l Enquirer guy flipping. That's when reality-based people had to face up to the fact that this isn't a witch hunt. Then came Trump's shameful behavior after McCain's death. I expect to see another drop in the next round of polls thanks to his embarrassing behavior yesterday and what will no doubt be a disgusting response to this upcoming hurricane. The hardcore MAGAts don't care but the people who voted for him "shake things up" didn't mean disrespecting a POW and doing a fist pump at 9/11. The real issue with a Trump for these people is that he's exhausting and it's no longer worth the trouble of trying to defend him. Those people may not vote Democrat but we might be able to keep them depressed enough to stay home in November.

    I agree that Obama has become a global figure. Much like MLK, Cesar Chavez, Gandhi, Mandela, Clinton, and Carter. These were all men (yes, men because men had the power) who came up from humble beginnings, They were flawed and imperfect but they did their best to leave the world a better place than they found it.

    The murder mystery atmosphere around the op-ed is a perfect example of what's gone so terribly wrong with the country. Once again we're back to being a reality show. The press is right on board with their ridiculous pieces analyzing the syntax. "Ooh they used "lodestar" so it must be Mike Pence." The press has learned nothing. The NY Times is just completely up its own ass smirking like the cat who ate the canary. The only good thing that comes out of this is the fact that Trump is obsessed with finding out who wrote it and is making the lives of the people in the White House hell. I hope he goes all out: polygraphs, truth serum, cavity searches. Anybody working in that White House deserves every bit of pain he can bring.
