"A Disaster for Republicans"

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace had nothing but praise for Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

Wallace summed up Dr. Ford's testimony before the Senate as: "extremely emotional, extremely raw, and extremely credible."

He called the majority's cross-examination format "a disaster for the Republicans."

“Nobody could listen to her deliver those words and talk about the assault and the impact it had had on his life, on her life, and not have her heart, your heart, go out to her. She obviously was traumatized by an event.” 
He added, remarking on the structure of the hearing, “This is a disaster for the Republicans.” 
For Thursday’s hearing, Republican senators hired a prosecutor from Arizona, Rachel Mitchell, to question Ford. Democratic senators, meanwhile, have asked their questions directly.

Kavanaugh got his chance to redeem his reputation this afternoon. I'm not sure what to make of the faces of the women seated behind him.

It's the Democrats that are going to lose over this. Kavanaugh brought evidence, Dr. Ford brought emotions and nothing else. Honestly given how her accusation has fallen apart, witnesses contradict her for example, I think people believe her because they want him to be guilty, so they will believe everything he gets accused of, no proof needed.

LMFAO at the Russian Troll. Serial Violent Gang Rapist Black Out Drunk Special K needed rest breaks every 11 minutes between bouts of yelling, crying and snivelling.

And the ReThugs had to hire a woman to do their jobs.

Well, Gyor, that puts you well to the right of a Fox News anchor. Who'd a thunk it?

One way to tell a Russian troll is when they are all spamming the web with the same GRU IRA dictated comment.

Putin want's Special K on the bench, that's why Kennedy retired, ( to try to protect his Alpha Bank son from jail) and Igor Kirkin paid off Special K's gambling debts, ( $200k) and "loaned" him $900k "off book" to buy a $1.95 million Georgetown house.

Special K, if he makes it, will destroy the USA from the Bench.

The women in the picture are his supporters.

To his right is his wife and I am guessing his sister and parents ( the father isn't shown in this picture).

To his left is the wife of a Facebook executive named Kaplan.

They seem to reacting to the line of questioning.

ist Special K is not being questioned in that photo,

He's yelling his opening Statement.

So they are not reacting to "the line of questioning", they are reacting to his mix of yelling, snivelling and crying jags in his opening statement.

that hearing(and the news bites) ---with all these privileged men yelling, barking and snarling---well it was pretty disgusting. But Kavanaugh's performance, holy shit, that was shocking.

1) that he reacted with such trumpian tone deaf narcissism(do they breed this in america --or are are these clowns everywhere:((

2) how stupid and contrived the privileged white male politicians are---again for me it was a WTF moment--and I have seen stupidity in trump but I thought it was only a few, but jesus its all of the republicans:P(not sure if im naive, blind or just optimistic that there was still some hope for Americans and their corrupt system)

3) how do any of these guys, esp Kavanaugh pass the bar, become lawyers, move up thru the system and be this stupid.
I guess the privileged class really do have the money and name recognition to thrive in the upper echelon of society.

Beyond climate change, and war, what is really dragging the human race down, is this morally impoverished class of so called "leaders" of society.
its beyond cringeworthy---its truly frightening!
and I guess bottom line is ---why are the women always expected to suffer, clean up these messes and fix what ails humanity. Time for the guys to rise up and demand more from the politicians and the administration.
Glad Dr Ford stood up to that sniveling asshat, lets have more of this happen, and shake up this white male class of monsters that rule the courts, and washington>
sort of like the catholic church that has provided safe haven and a job for pedophiles:( Washington, the white house and the whole political system seems to be a club for sociopaths.
