Sociologist explains how Brett Kavanaugh brazenly misled the Senate Judiciary Committee  Salon.com

Many of us who watched Thursday’s Senate hearing spent much of the time cataloguing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s lies. After hours of testimony, during which Christine Blasey Ford answered questions about her alleged sexual assault, the financing behind her lie detector test, and whether she was really afraid of flying, viewers were treated to more hours of testimony from Kavanaugh, a federal judge who struggled to give a single straight answer.

Kavanaugh strained credulity when he argued before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the “Devil’s Triangle” — a phrase that appeared on his high school yearbook page — referred to a drinking game, a definition which, before Thursday, you’d have a hard time finding anywhere. (It actually refers to a sex act involving two men and a woman). He also unabashedly claimed that the term “boof” is a reference to “flatulence,” rather than other butt stuff, and that “ralph,” which means to vomit — implicitly from the overconsumption of alcohol — was a reference to Kavanaugh’s weak stomach.

    He’s a congenital liar, it appears…

    Not only the bald-faced lie about no connections to Yale, when it’s easily verified that his grandfather was a Yale undergrad…but his lies about his drinking.

    This Yale classmate has a different recollection than the unfit, despicable SCOTUS nominee:

      The American People are done with that story. Trump and his never ending dramas suck all the air out of the day, the weeks, the months. And those children are still being separated, move to abominable conditions…tents? In winter? I think it gets cold down there at some point.

      On and on it goes, unnecessary suffering compliments of those shameless republicans and the monster in the White House.

    Sprained my right foot and ankle stumbling down two stairs in the dark last night. Painful and swollen since 6 am.

    Lawrence H. Tribe writes about why Kavanaugh would have to recuse himself so often that he would just be a court ornament. Fails to mention that is now true of his Circuit Court seat as well.

    Kitten Calvin, taken care of by the Vet, this from friend Holly: “He’s all good! Clean as a whistle. I made friends with John so he is coming at 4:30 to pick him up. Test was negative, gave him flea preventative etc. He’s a healthy boy!”

    John picked him up, it very happy with Calvin, said he’s the friendliest cat he’s ever had, and the loudest purrer. He thanked me for the cat! I knew Calvin going to John’s house was a perfect match, he’s a great kitty dad. There are more reports from John, but I won’t bore you with them. He’s very happy with Calvin.

    He said he’s going to call him, “The Mayor of Cat.” For short, just “Mayor,” lol!
