There is no way to sugarcoat how bad things just got, and if there was, we shouldn't. This is a loss that will haunt this nation for decades.

The confirmation of #BrettKavanaugh has managed to confirm more than just a man, for many, its confirmed our worst fears.

It has confirmed that the @GOP is the most corrupt ruling party at the federal level in our nation's history. That they will do anything and everything to protect itself, including putting the survival of our Republic itself at risk.

Its confirmed that the real decisions are made before the questions are even formally presented, and that they really do not care what our opinions of those decisions will be.

And it has also confirmed that Donald Trump has a lot more power than we imagined.

Say what you will, but in the end, @SenatorCollins was more afraid of pissing off Trump than she was her own constituents.

She chose to set fire to her entire legacy in one vote rather than do the thing that would have secured it.

Think about that.

Kavanaugh will come to the Court at a pivotal moment, and make no mistake, this was no accident.

#Kavanaugh has indicated, well, actually affirmed, that he has no intention of recusing himself from any of the case types that most legal scholars have agreed he should.

Let's do away with any pretty words that would mitigate the damage Republicans have inflicted, shall we? Words like alleged and possible. They have no place in this conversation.

#BrettKavanaugh committed perjury. He did it openly and without blinking.

This should really surprise no one since he had already done so before, on more than one occasion. His own letters and emails prove that.

But what's a little, or in this case, a lot of perjury among such unamiable straight white dudes?

It's nothing I tell you.

It's hard not to wonder what cards they are still holding. What surprise they have yet to reveal that will make clearer #Kavanaugh's true / full significance.

Whatever it is, I'm sure it's not going to be pleasant.

Not going to be pleasant is, here, a terrible euphemism.

What I find remarkable is that #Kavanaugh couldn't manage even a little honesty in his ridiculously inappropriate Op-ed. In that apology he made the claim that he had no political dog in any fight.


Impartiality is a thing, but it's certainly not Kavanaugh's thing.

Come on. Seriously.

Tucker Carlson.
Ann Coulter.
Matt Drudge
Laura Ingraham.

These are his cohorts. This is his crowd.

Not exactly a group of wallflowers with no agenda.

#BrettKavanaugh's own writings clearly undermine the substance of his op-ed from first word to last.

We can bitch about all of the ways this is terrible all day. And trust me, we really could. The list is that long.

But short of impeachment we are likely stuck with this man until nature takes its course, or his liver.

It is going to hurt. Often. Too often.

But focusing only that would be to lose sight of the real issues.

Too few of us are too little involved in the actual democracy part of our Democracy.

Until that changes things lindse this will keep happening.

See our team keeps showing up a few players down.

Until we realize that the Presidency is often the least of the prizes, and that our votes or lack of them, have deeply cascading effects that land us in pools of #BrettKavanaugh's then nothing will change.

We have 30 more days to get our shit together.
