    SCOTUS hearing

    Actually, I'm 100% correct....here's Biden's actual quoted text...from that right wing rag; the New York Times...Google....it's a bitch. But in a speech on the Senate floor in June 1992, Mr. Biden, then the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said there should be a different standard for a Supreme Court vacancy “that would occur in the full throes of an election year.” The president should follow the example of “a majority of his predecessors” and delay naming a replacement, Mr. Biden said. If he goes forward before then, the Senate should wait to consider the nomination. “Some will criticize such a decision and say that it was nothing more than an attempt to save a seat on the court in hopes that a Democrat will be permitted to fill it, but that would not be our intention,” Mr. Biden said at the time. “It would be our pragmatic conclusion that once the political season is underway, and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/23/us/politics/joe-biden-argued-for-delaying-supreme-court-picks-in-1992.html

    SCOTUS hearing

    What "laws" of the Senate has the GOP scrapped? ...and they aren't laws just for the record; they are just the parliamentary guidelines the Senate chooses to do business by. Surely you don't mean the Harry Reid change to the 60 vote rule on judicial positions do you (which he was told would come back to bite him in the ass)? Or, you don't mean adhering to the original Democrat rule of not voting for SCOTUS nominees in an election year do you (you know, Democrat Joe Biden's rule)? Please be specific which rules the GOP scrapped ... well, other than the rules the Democrats actually scrapped and the GOP just followed....and told the Democrats they would be sorry they did...payback is an absolute bitch...

    Things I Think I Saw: AU vs Washington

    The O-line opportunities have been well documented. Haven't heard a lot of commentary on no runs outside; well, the A gap...also, it seems all the ball carriers run straight up. If you look back at Mason, Barber and Kerryon, they were very good and getting low and finding the 2-3 when there was nothing. It seemed like no matter what; our guys would run into the wall straightup. Could be selective memory; just don't remember seeing very much of seeing what's there (or not there) and of getting low and pushing into whatever gap might be there.

    it represents 3% of the total documents produced...and they were trying to get info from a time before he was a judge...

    SCOTUS hearing

    I find your comparison a non-sequitor and full of factual errors. I don't think I've seen points mixed more since the one Senator this afternoon kept claiming what Kavanagh said in one case was what he really meant when he said something different on a different case...it was; well; as confusing as following your points above. I don't find legitimate efforts at Senators interrogating a SCOTUS nominee the least bit concerning or clownish. Those seem to be few and far between the last few days; but are part of the process and are meant to be enlightening. The two very enlightening things I have seen so far are 1) Kavanaugh is by far and away smarter than anyone of either party asking him questions and 2) he has the patience of Job...which I am sure disqualifies him according to some group setting in the gallery (because, Job was in the Bible and we have to separate Church and State don't we?). What is clownish is that the Democrat leadership has conspired with fringe groups led by the likes of Linda Sansour (arrested on day one of the hearing) to just disrupt and delay the proceedings....heckling for no other reason than to disrupt and delay the Constitutional process. This was completely orchestrated; scheduled, it's all timed to the point now that the guards in the room are standing by the next member of the ICP as they stand up. The best part is most of those being thrown out still manage to hold onto their selfie sticks; and I'm sure never lose the focus on their caterwauling mugs. The resistance just loves a good selfie (apparently). As to your claim of "lack of transparency"; more documents have been produced for Kavanagh than the last 5 nominees combined. So you're claim is patently; let's see; what's that term I'm looking for...I want to be accurate...oh yeah, just full of crap. We've even heard in detail about his scandalous love of basketball, fatherhood, beer even...OMG...he's a card carrying Bolshevik!!!! (just kidding, that would be John Brennan)....he's also been on Trump's list of 25 SCOTUS candidates thus giving "the opposition" plenty of time to dig up dirt on "Ward Cleaver". And given that most of the committee members have already said they would vote against any nominee put forward by Trump; it doesn't really matter what documents are produced now does it? He's also imminently qualified by every objective measure give his long track record on multiple courts and his top ABA rating. Just like Trump's previous selection; sitting justice Gorsuch....and hopefully his upcoming 3rd (and maybe even 4th ) pick.
