Takes from Yesterday

GOP Sen. Jeff Flake just announced he is voting for Judge Kavanaugh. Did anyone actually think this fella would vote against?  Commentary doesn’t know anyone who respects this fella. He is all talk for sure.

GOP talking head Alice Stewart sometimes doesn’t stick to the GOP talking points. The following tweet isn’t a talking point, but it doesn’t have a point either. See here:

Optics are everything: Dr. Ford looked terrified, Judge Kavanaugh looks like he’s ready to go to war.

So, I had to retweet her with this:

Duh! I think Dr. Ford said she was terrified.

That was the first thing Dr. Ford said in her opening statement – that she was terrified.

Maybe @alicetweet should have said:

“Optics are everything: Dr. Ford shed a tear or two. Judge Kavanaugh sobbed throughout the first half of his statement.”

Dr. Ford held it together. He didn’t.

He sobbed. She didn’t.

He was evasive. She wasn’t.

Sen. Lindsey Graham made a fool out of himself, but that’s not news.

Everybody knows that Mark Judge can kill the Judge Kavanaugh appointment and that’s why the GOP Senators don’t want to question him.

If Dem Sens. Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar or Mazie Hirono had pulled a Sen. Lindsey Graham act, they would be getting scorched.

Same goes for Dr. Ford, if she would have had the tone and attitude of Judge Kavanaugh.

It is disingenuous for folks to say Dr. Ford was credible and she was assaulted, it just wasn’t Judge Kavanaugh. That’s preposterous.

The GOP Senators’ decision to bring in a female attorney to ask questions didn’t turn out so well as they ditched her during the Judge Kavanaugh questioning.

Sen. Ted Cruz and his GOP colleagues, except for Chair Chuck Grassley, never said hello to Dr. Ford. Disrespectful.

Blaming the Clintons? I guess you can blame Sec. Hillary Clinton for yesterday. If she had won, his arse would never have been appointed.

I agree with Judge Kavanaugh that his reputation has been destroyed. He should have read a Commentary of mine a while back. I think I said history would not be kind to those that work for or are appointed by Donald Trump.

My biggest take is that Dr. Ford is a person. The past couple of weeks, she was a news story. We saw her yesterday and the word I will remember most from her statement was when she hid in the small bathroom and waited and then heard Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge go “pinballing” down the staircase.

“Pinballing” instead of walking down the stairs. Descriptive for sure.

Then I saw this today:

Fox News has fired contributor Kevin Jackson over his tweet referring to the women accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault as “lying skanks,” the network announced Thursday.

“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor. His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of FOX News,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement.

Huh? News to me that FOX News has values. What are they?

Still at 100-58 because of a rainout last night. We still have 4 in B’More including a twin bill tomorrow.
