September 29, 2018

Now, I am getting email from the Democratic Party soliciting donations based on Brett Kavanaugh.

Yesterday morning, I blogged about getting an email solicitation from the party, under the name of Cory Booker, that didn't mention Kavanaugh. I speculated about what that might mean. But yesterday evening, I got this email, from the party, with the subject line "Brett Kavanaugh" (signed by Seema Nanda, the CEO of the Democratic National Committee). Since I blogged about the Kavanaugh-free email. I've got to share the text of this:
After watching Republican senators' shameful performance in this week's Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, I'm more certain than ever that it is a moral imperative for Democrats to take back control of Congress this November and the White House in 2020.
Shameful? What was shameful?
Chuck Grassley shouldn't be chairing a congressional committee. People like Lindsey Graham shouldn't be Senators.
People like Lindsey Graham? What does that even mean?! There's a heavy moralistic tone here, but it's so conclusory that I see they're only trying to reach me if I happen to have already taken umbrage and am up for conclusory statements and slurs.
People like Donald Trump shouldn't be appointing anyone to a lifetime term on our nation's highest court., Lindsey Graham and their Republican colleagues...
That's how it looks in the original. Something got cut. I don't know why the DNC is centralizing Graham (other than that he made the most fiery statement during the hearing).
... have shown that they have no interest in seriously investigating the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh -- and Donald Trump has demonstrated time and again that he lacks the temperament and judgment to make an appointment to our highest court.
I thought Trump was making very sober choices, deferring to the experts on the conservative judiciary. I can't think of anything he's done wrong in picking Supreme Court nominees (other than that he's picking conservatives).
My promise to you as CEO of the Democratic National Committee is that I will do every last thing in my power in the next 39 days to fight back against these Republicans. Right now, I'd like to ask for your help.
"Every last thing"?
This Sunday is the final end-of-quarter deadline before Election Day, and every contribution made before Sunday at midnight will help Democrats take back Congress this November. If we do that, we can exert some real checks on this president and stop him from pushing through more extreme Supreme Court nominees.
And that's the problem, distinctly admitted. The Democrats oppose conservative Supreme Court nominees, and they need to win in the midterms to block them, and they're ready to do anything they can toward that goal.

ADDED:  I used the word "umbrage" and felt motivated to look it up in the OED. I'm using it correctly. It has meant "Displeasure, annoyance, offence, resentment" since the 1600s. One of the examples in the OED comes from George Washington:
1796 G. Washington Let. in Writings (1892) XIII. 263 Unless my pacific disposition was displeasing, nothing else could have given umbrage by the most rigid construction of the letter.
But the older meaning is shade or shadow, and it's still not obsolete to use it to mean, specifically, the shade created by a tree:
1849 C. Brontë Shirley II. ii. 34 She would spend a sunny afternoon in lying stirless on the turf, at the foot of some tree of friendly umbrage.

I can only imagine what Trump was saying when Kavanaugh just couldn’t pull himself together. I doubt Trump likes crybabies.

He is one.

When Kavanaugh gropes and grinds against that Supreme Court bench seat that he wants so bad, will he cup his hand over it to stifle a scream, just out of habit?

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“I know you wish for it real bad, try to avoid the total emotional collapse that can happen when you realize there is not a benevolent, protective, loving govt for you to depend on. Is sucks when your fantasies fail you.”

Actually this comment is a very apt one when directed to Kavanaugh. He expected Trump and the Republicans to back him up, no matter what.

Howard said...

Bart O'K: The gift that keeps on giving. I see that FBI has been called in after the GOP left Bart hung out to dry under a bus. Drago says it's just a flesh wound... we'll see.

If Reps agreed to FBI first, they would have saved time and money with Geiko and spared Bart from lashing his tongue. That's a tough visual to overcome and I bet it was a yuuuge turnon for DickinBimbo's. I still feel sorry for the guy and his family but really don't have strong feelings for the truth of the matter.

Howard said...

This hairball is for you, Howard.

Oh no! "Horrible things!"

Sounds vaguely specific.

Apparently nothing that any prosecuting attorney could find to take them up on.

And they're not claiming entitlement to a national office to represent us all. You know. People outside of MN or NJ.

Maybe you can be like Putin and recall state representation and races.

Assholes. You have nowhere left to go. Just accept it.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

How can you note anything in your paroxysms of coughing? Investigate the shit out of Menendez, I hear no liberals defending him.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

ooo the tired evangelical slight. Wow - that's new. Never mind that there are democrats who are evangelicals.

Should we round them up and cast them on the fire?

The one true religion is the mob-left.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

O'Kavanaugh feels he's entitled to rule on my rights.

I say he's not.

And he has no local constituency to back him on on that. Not in Minnesota or in New Jersey.

Bart O'Kavanaugh can suck a dick. April Apple's dick.

While his mouth is covered.

Whatever. You people are horrible. Just bottom of the barrel.

LOL - Nobody on the left is stopping Menendez or asking him to step aside.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

And if Menendez has already been investigated and no charges were filed, then what, maybe Bimbo should torture the truth out of him?

Rt1 Rebel said...

Keep underestimating Trump, it's your blindspot. Trump is remarkably quiet and demure the past few days. He's got something and is waiting. I'm drinking beer with my nephew who works for [redacted] and had dinner with Trump two nights ago. He was terrified about Trump 18 months ago, and he is delighted with him now. Says he's sharper and even more hilarious in person than at his rallies. This inside-baseball stuff is great. Wish I could tell you more.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

ooo the tired evangelical slight.

Oh I know. You Republicans are so libertine and protective of personal liberties. Sure.

All you want is someone to tell you what to do. No one listens to evangelicals any more so you do whatever the Orange Golden God says.

Nothing tired about bootlicking. It's happened for centuries.

But it's not really the American thing to do now, is it?

Conservatives can't come to terms with the fact that they have no real place in a country like America founded upon progressive enlightenment ideals. That's why they're so crazy.

In other countries they can rally around their ethnogenesis myths or actual national institutions.

But America doesn't have and has no need of those things so the conservatives just go crazy wild with anger.

Ohhhhh, I’m sooooo impressed Rt1 Rebel! I so believe you.

Do you really want to be lumped with these two idiots that post a hundred comments with no sense ?

Some sweet sweet liberty right there.

Listen to all this jabber about tearing down Trump w/o any concomitant talk of his replacement. Obviously, the Dems have never heard of the advantages of SN2 vs. SN1

No, I read this blog for the commenters except for a couple who are useless trolls.

Your comments used to be reasonable but you have caught this insanity that will destroy the Democrat Party.

Now its a constant repetition of DNC talking points to the extent that no one knows what, or if, you think.

Ritmo is an angry young man, I can't believe a mature adult would go on with the hatred he does.

Howard has posted some reasonable comments, even if I disagree.

FIDO said...

I'm sorry. Criticizing the Dems in a breezy way doesn't exonerate the support for the dismissal of a hatchet job and a violation of due process w Kavanaugh.

Gunner said...

It's very amusing how the Pee Pee Man writes many comments gay baiting Lindsey Graham, but Republicans are the intolerant ones.

Francisco D said...

Bart O'Kavanaugh can suck a dick.

In my continuing effort to suss out Ritmo's identity, I was hit with an insight from yesterday's drama:

It's Sheldon Whitehouse!. He has decoded Kavanaugh's HS calendar and yearbook and determined that "football practice" is code for gang rape. "Family event" is code for "Christine will suck my dick." There's more to come, I am sure.

Thanks Sheldon/Ritmo. You just gave yourself away.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

It’s out there if you care to look.

I don't.

Most people don't.

At least I didn’t fill my blog with stories about phony Brazilian hookers like you did.

Lol! The girl I dated wasn't a "hooker." Just because we had sex more than occurs in your own parched and passionless sexlife doesn't mean she was. And just because you're an incel who married the first and only girl you ever had sex with doesn't mean she was "phony."

Is it healthy for you to extend your childhood into your fifties like this? How do I ask an old man with the emotional/social maturity of a six-year old to grow up?

FIDO said...

And if Menendez has already been investigated and no charges were filed, then what, maybe Bimbo should torture the truth out of him?

The support of the Mendez claims can't pass reasonable doubt, not that they don't exist.

Same as Kavanaugh. Except there are multiple VALID claims against Menendez but for K, it smacks of repressed memories and TMZ.

But one you give the full protection of the law, and one you don't.

You read it to hear the sound of your own voice. To see the print of your own comments in text.

ALl I hate is arrogant stupidity. Be arrogant. Or be stupid. One or the other.

But if you do both, I'm a gonna call your ass out.

Howard has posted some reasonable comments, even if I disagree.

You don't have any appreciation for "reasonable." No narcissist - especially anyone as narcissistic as you - does.

What you appreciate is his relative inoffensiveness.

That's the only thing narcissists are impressed by. You can see it in the way Trump praised Ben Carson.

Innocent naifs. That's what you respect. Not reason.

Not now. Not ever.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

It's very amusing how the Pee Pee Man writes many comments gay baiting Lindsey Graham, but Republicans are the intolerant ones.

I don't care that he's gay. I care that he's a deflecting closet-case coward who can't come clean on what's important in life - whether in regards to his own identity or what's the more important issue at stake in the Ford-Kavanaugh issue.

Kavanaugh's entitlement is not more important than questions about his character and Ford's traumatization. Plain and simple.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

I'm glad that Jeff Flake decided to finally exercise some character - once the cameras left him with no choice.

What bravery.

Ray said...

If Menendez was a Republican he would be gone by now.

Same with Ellison.

It was amazing watching feminists destroy their credibility over Clinton.

I hope the same thing happens to the anti Kavanaugh forces.

Trump is a master of controlling the media narrative, so when he goes quiet you need to wonder why...
NAFTA seems to be at a crossroads, but I think he’s playing rope a rope on the nomination. No matter what, he can call out the wickedness of the anti Kavanaughs. But, he should wait a week so the Dems 100% (and gop enablers) own this smear.

@Michael K I would not rule out alcohol or drugs either. Ford is, after all, a surfer dude. You are a west coast dude yourself; how does the surfing scene tie into drugs? Someone certainly needs to explore Ford's need for counseling. She and her husband did not just go to their local clergyman. They went to a full blown psychotherapist. That sounds like serious issues to me.

Mac McConnell said...

You got to wonder about Ford's relationship with her family. Chrissy got legal advice from "beach friends" and Feinstein even though her two brothers are successful DC lawyers. Her family knows she is a loon.

I didn't say any such thing about CBF, but her history and her testimony speaks for itself.

Trump is down in West Virginia ensuring the end of Manchin. He and Heidtcamp and McCaskill and Tester and Brown and Baldwin and Nelson and Brown and Donelly all slimed their way through in past elections pretending to be "moderate" democrats while flake and corker slimed their way through pretending to be republicans.

More than half of those people will vote for Kavanaugh on Friday.

Most will still lose because of the disgrace the democrat party has become. 2 of them are already gone.

Rt1 Rebel said...

"I can only imagine what Trump was saying when Kavanaugh just couldn’t pull himself together. I doubt Trump likes crybabies."


So you don't like men who cry, and you don't like men who don't cry. Trump has a card he hasn't played yet. Brace yourself. How is that whole "Russian Collusion" thing going? Not a peep about that for a few weeks.

Achilles said...

On Aug 23rd known child rapist Bob Menendez, who only likes the newest youngest girls, led his opponent 43 to 37.

I wonder how the black vote is going to turn out for the pedo.

I bet we don't hear any more polls out of New Jersey.

People are pretending Missouri and Indiana are toss ups and that West Virginia "Leans democrat."

A dozen democrat incumbents are leading with less than 45% in the polls.

It is fun to watch the globalists fall.

Michael K said...

Halftime. I guess MacDonald's evening shift began.

The GOP has got to stay string but I wonder. The internet will seek out the facts about CBF. We already know about her house, that was remodeled in 2008 and is a rental.

More will come out. I would like the rest of her therapist notes.

Rt1 Rebel said...

It's a damn shame that the whole Russian Collusion investigation has been derailed to investigate a non-crime with no location, no date or time, no forensic evidence, and no witnesses that could change testimony without perjury charges.

Michael K said...

The Democrats hit another dry hole (so to speak) in the case.

The Montgomery County Police and State’s Attorney’s office responded to Democrats on Friday.

The alleged criminal acts of assault and attempted rape were both misdemeanors in 1982 and subject to a one-year statute of limitations.
Therefore, the alleged criminal act should have been reported in 1983 which would have been difficult since the victim has no idea what she is talking about and her “witnesses” ALL refute her allegations.


And there are no facts for the FBI to "investigate" so Inga and company will come up short.

Next is to learn how Flaky the GOP is.

Rt1 Rebel said...

I can't remember who said it about the dems/libs, "all they had to do is not act crazy,,,"

You're not taking the Senate or the House after this shit.

Trump is just waiting for Mueller to release his report.

Thank you liberal maniacs, you've just cemented Trump and a favorable House and Senate for another 6 years. And at least one more SC Judge. Good work, good effort!

Rt1 Rebel said...

Here's the thing... Trump was a lifelong Democrat, friends of Bill and Hillary, all of that... If the Dems would have just played nice, they could have had nice things, but they didn't. They effectively radicalized Trump into a their worst nightmare. And now they're doing the same with Kavanaugh. Whatever hope that they had with him becoming a moderate judge is gone, if he is approved, he's gonna fuck them every chance he gets, for decades. Dems are not long game thinkers.

Michael K said...

I agree although Trump was probably not gong to be a buddy of the Dims. Still, they really went nuts.

Rt1 Rebel said...

Trump works deals. That's what he does and the only reason he can be effective. Trump would have certainly reached across the aisle to the Dems on just about any issue. Once the Dems went all out on the impeach/collusion he was done with that. Trump also knows his enemies and how to destroy them. I'm standing by my statement that the Dems got the Trump that they deserve.

So when you fuck up with any ability to persuade anyone of anything, you threaten violence. Definitely a law-and-order way running a republic. When's the violent revolutionary coup planned? You must think you're like the delta force version of antifas.

In the meantime, go print out your sociopathic 6:53 comment, mail it to the FBI, and let them know that you're trying to figure out who you want to gun down individually in the meantime, before your overthrow of the republic and its laws gives you the license you crave to mass murder your way into total and complete power, since that's obviously all you're interested in anyway.

What's hilarious is that when sociopaths like you do mass murder and genocide your way into power, all you end up doing is turning your guns on each other. Violence as an end in itself has a way of not really practicing constraint. Funny, that.

Also, let me know how all the ilks are doing. Lol. Ilk. Come up with a more original word, why don't you?

Moronic douchebag. That's the kind of violent loser who thinks he's supposed to be running the country. What a joke.

If you have been on Capitol Hill you know that the buildings are all designed with "Members Only" elevators and hallways. There are Member Only cars on the trains that run underground from the office buildings to the Capitol itself.

If Flake was accosted in an elevator then he was using one in a public space since there was a secure elevator he could have taken.

Maybe he wanted to be accosted. And maybe some Soros operatives were happy to accommodate him.

It is all a show.

Liberals' hatred had driven them insane. They've become vicious, morally retarded assholes. Ford changed her story over and over and over. There is no possible way that an honest, moral person can believe her story. It is obviously BS. Obvious.

Hardcore, left-wing, pussy hat wearing political activist. That seriously damages her credibility because of her bias. She's a professor in Palo Alto. More damage to credibility. In psychology, a social science riven with post-modern rejection of the concept of truth in favor of power politics. Huge hit to her credibility. And she has financial and professional self-interest in abortion. More hits to credibility.


Becoming a huge hero to the left (see Anita Hill who was also PROVEN to be a liar) offers her an enormous financial and career incentive to lie.


She produces a story that has nothing to it. And then continually changes it every time she realizes that her old story has holes.


Who is so sick, so depraved, so illogical, so consumed with hatred that they could believe this crap?
