    uno,

    You made a good point in the last thread just wanted you to know I saw it

    Can't substantiate or corroborate anything if you don't investigate.

    A reminder for Maine.



    That's all her opponent needs to run on.

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said she does not regret her vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, despite the vote becoming a key issue among Democrats hoping to unseat her when she is up for reelection next year.

    “I do not regret my vote in the least,” she said in an interview with The New York Times published Saturday.

    Well you know, if you let the FBI investigate, they can find out quite easily whether they are " unsubstantiated and uncorroborated". Just saying.

    Not really. The FBI has been taken over by Barr which is totally controlled by Trump. This is why Mueller was such a gargantuan disappointment and failed at his job.

    No sticky.

    Mueller could only do what he could do. The quote is "a republic, if you can keep it."

    The disappointment is the American people. We are the ones who let this happen. Nazism took root here because we were lazy, stupid, and unwilling to put our petty squabbles away in the face of an existential threat to democracy. You still see people doing it, right here, when they slag members of the coalition that can stop it.

    In a sane world this turns Collins' seat blue. I don't know how far Maine has gone into Snow Appalachia but if they have even a smidgen of intelligence left any reasonably competent Dem can bring that seat home.

    We'll agree to disagree. Mueller could have done more. He didn't.

    That’s from July, it’s not new. What is she supposed to say? That he’s a thug? She’s got more class in her pinky than any R voter can dream of

    Probably have to go back to the 19th century to find a SCOTUS justice who had anything less than complimentary to say about a sitting colleague.

    Remember they all managed to find nice words for Scalia when he was murdered finally choked on his own lung tar.

    Anything I've ever seen about the justices suggests that they all get along a lot better than most of us would expect, and some would hope. I suppose some people still find it odd that adults can disagree on a subject, even one of great importance, and not take that disagreement personally.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    I remember reading that RBG and Scalia used to get lunch together almost daily.

    They were both intellectuals -- who were they gonna hang out with, Rehnquist the used car salesman?

    They were good friends who spent Christmases together. They both liked the opera. And I'm sure they enjoyed the company of a fellow top tier, curious intellect.

    Scalia's problem was never that he was stupid.
