Where are we today? The FBI investigated without an investigation, Republicans will make a declaration without reporting anything, then force a vote, or not. Who knows? David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter are here to unscumble the obfuscating:
Donald Trump finally got his turn on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and the cheers were both deplorable and predictable. Some Senators were sort of concerned and kind of appalled. Greg Wednesday danced his round-up of honorable/horrific Brett and Bart reactions our way.
People who really know Brett Kavanaugh wouldn’t confirm him. People who really know Bart O’Kavanaugh stay well out of reach. Educated white women were already recoiling from Trump. Then came Kavanaugh. Republican women however, still really don’t like women.
Markos "kos" Moulitsas helps clear up the dissembling of terms everyone wish were never coined (FFFF, Devil’s Triangle, Boof) in the effort to drop Brett Kavanaugh (Cleveland Steamer) onto the Supreme Court. McConnell needs Kavanaugh as much as Trump does.
