UPDATE: Here comes another one?
Huh… "Montgomery County investigators confirmed Monday they’re aware of a potential second sexual assault complaint in the county against former Georgetown Prep student and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.” https://t.co/85qeetYjiG

Trump is locked and loaded to protect frat bro Brett Kavanaugh this morning, while the reactions are flying fast and thick. (Personally, I'm happy about anything that makes Matt Schlapp cry.)
I did decide that whenever I'm introduced to Republicans, the first thing I'm going to say is, "So what's your kink?" And by the way, I'm hearing about other, more recent Kavanaugh stories out there. This isn't going away.
It is almost an axiom:
There’s never just one.

This Kavanaugh confirmation has transformed into a disgrace. How is it when Dems win their SC noms get an easy time, but ours get mauled.

If you're reminding Matt Schlapp about Merrick Garland, you may be making the category error of assuming Matt Schlapp gives a shit about what's true.

Worth remembering that Kavanaugh is a hard-line, radical right-winger who would surely bring down Roe v Wade, hammer workers' rights, and undermine government regulation. We were supposed to ignore all this and focus on how fine a man he is.

Failing to treat rape allegations against Brett Kavanaugh seriously sets a bad example, said one high school student. "Boys will learn that what you do in high school won't affect your future at all, so go do the damage you need to do now." https://t.co/bCddr5aCuh

Chris Christie on ABC, suggesting Kavanaugh's current position on the DC Circuit is up in the air: "The idea that he could go back to the Court of Appeals and continue to serve, if he's not confirmed, is really unlikely"

Independent @SenAngusKing on why he opposed Brett Kavanaugh's nomination from the beginning: "We only have 10% of the data" from the judge's time in the White House. "If somebody ... said, 'I want a job, but you can only see 10% of my work product' ... you'd laugh at them" pic.twitter.com/0UIs4hcpkq

Ed Whelan has changed his Twitter handle. He removed that he worked at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. He was put on a leave of absence to be reevaluated in a month. He offered to resign but the board refused.

Just like we cannot hear certain tones that dogs can, Republicans are incapable of hearing the words "Merrick Garland"

She’s “the only senator who asks every nominee, for any position, whether they have ever been accused of sexual misconduct & whether they have ever signed an NDA. She wants these answers on the record in case future information shows [they] lied.” https://t.co/c9giwR05Qw

Arm-in-arm, we march from the steps of the Supreme Court to the Hart Senate Building.

A few thoughts here: 1. High quality poll. 2. Gillum (as @taniel points out) continues to outperform Nelson. 3. A tied race in this environment and given FL's partisan leanings probably pts to Nelson being slightly favored. https://t.co/8YrVusxO0Q
