"Ruining Kavanaugh's life..." is just Republican manipulative melodrama.

How does it ruin Kavanaugh's life if he gets voted down and doesn't get to go to the Supreme Court? He just keeps his current job as a U.S. Circuit Court judge, a pretty cushy situation by most people's standards. This "ruining the guy's life" nonsense is just Republicans trying to play on people's heartstrings to sneak a guy onto the court who pretty clearly doesn't belong there. Sorry, but Republican leaders aren't known for their empathy; sneakiness, yes.

Ruining Kavanaugh's life? Please. There are a lot people in this country who are not on the Supreme Court.

2. Would you really want him to stay a judge?

If he is exonerated but not confirmed, because there is no oroving these allegations, every time he tries a case, I see a challenge.

They're robbing themselves of valuable campaign time, while showing America how unworthy of power they are, right before an election.

9. Well they really crossed the rubicon this weekend.

The utter stupidity, which apparently even the most hysterical 'Trump supporters' don't get, is that Kavanaugh has gone through background checks. And these were not just for judicial appointments. He also went through security clearance checks. I have been through them as have others here. Shit like this from high school or college to the degree they are now trying to present would not have slipped through the cracks in seven background investigations.

Drag this shit out bloody noses and all through out October.

18. When I initially was investigated for my security clearance, they went back to high school and asked

both teachers and the people who knew me about my character. Any incident like the one alleged would have certainly come to light. This whole charade is disgusting. And no, I don't particularly believe her or Ramirez.

20. Me too.

Buddies, teachers, band director (we did a lot of crazy teen shit on band trips!), college professors, roommates from college, women I dated in college, the full gambit.

It is beyond disgusting. I am livid and despite my penchant for swearing (my grandmother was Scottish after all!), I rarely get that perturbed by the political bullshit. This has struck deep nerves in me and I truly wish there was something directly I could do to fight this.

21. I generally dismiss hyperbole posted here about a second civil war.

The events of the past week have made me rethink that.

It is not about Kavanaugh or a generic SCOTUS seat,it is the left making no bones about how quickly they will shred the Constitution on a whim for political ends.

34. He may not sue them but ...

... they may be putting a really pissed off new Associate Justice on SCOTUS who, like Clarence Thomas, has a very accurate and vivid memory of what the Left is willing to do to get their way.

Not a good long tern strategy, to piss off a guy whose opinion might be the tipping point on things.

24. I look at the second civil war posts

mostly as catharsis. Folks are angry and venting.

I was just discussing with my woman over breakfast this very thing. It is not about any one thing over the last two years. It is about a pervasive pattern where Democrats are wiling to use any means necessary to maintain their grip on the levers of power. They will sacrifice anyone. They will deny the rule of law. They will shred the Constitution as you put it. They will lie and propagandize.

This Kavanaugh confirmation may be our Reichstag moment in history and that should scare all sane Americans, conservative or liberal alike.

27. I did.

It makes me want to puke. It may not mean much to many here, but I contacted the priest at our parish about this. We are doing a rosary for the family this week. We are reaching out to his DC parish to see if there is anything we can do for his family. I can no longer just rant and rave about this without trying to do at least some act of charity for this man and his family.

The irony is that I don't support Kavanaugh for the position. I think he is just another swing-vote Kennedy. He is a conservative but not an Originalist. But this is just too much!

"How does it ruin Kavanaugh's life if he gets voted down and doesn't get to go to the Supreme Court?"

It's the false accusations of rape, you fucking dipshit, not the vote that hasn't happened yet.

15. Really?

Are you really that fucking stupid?
Being accused of a sexual assault is devastating, especially if it's a false accusation, as it seems to be in the Kavanaugh case.

It doesn't matter if you're innocent, there are those who will always believe that you're guilty no matter what.

28. This has to be one of the most ignorant things I have ever read on this board.

I cannot imagine working my entire life and just as I am at the threshold of achieving the top position in my profession, I am robbed of the opportunity because of uncorroborated allegations from 30 years ago. He will forever be denied fulfilling his lifetime goal. Sounds like a ruined professional life to me. Not to mention his ruined reputation.

32. ''How does it ruin Kavanaugh's life''- You can't possibly be that obtuse, can you?

A coordinated smear campaign with no chance to face his accusers or defend himself is NOT the American way. But LW cowards dont want him to be able to refute the charges or defend himself

You want to lynch him

why? purely for political reasons
