    • And yes, Kavanaugh will be investigated and impeached.
      By whom? He's already been investigated and they found that the allegations lacked sufficient evidence to file charges. As for impeachment, good luck getting to 67.

      Complete and absolute dementia. People like you are what is wrong with this country.
      Smears, smears, smears.

      • Kavanaugh is mentally imbalanced and is unfit to be on the stand. One can just point toh is testimony. He's unqualified because of his mental issues. He looked bipolar on the stand. He is not fair and cannot render judgments correctly.
        Nothing of the sort was held of Kavanaugh back in 2003 when he was nominated for the appellate court then. Surely in the past decade plus he's been on the court, such instability would have become apparent?

                      Democrats at the time did not cite 'instability' as a justification for opposing his nomination to the DC appellate court, which they blocked for three years. I can only conclude that since they didn't cite 'instability' that Kavanaugh in 2003 did not exhibit these characteristics.

                      Given that Democrats in 2018 never cited instability as a justification for opposing Kavanaugh's nomination at the outset, I can also conclude with reasonable certainty that Kavanaugh never exhibited said characteristics in the decade plus he's been on the DC appellate court.

                      What is interesting is that folks like you only cited this *after* his speech where he called out the entire process as a circus. That strikes me as the complaint that someone would have when they've been justifiably called out and wanting to silence the speaker.

                        Here we go again with the bullshit... endless from Burger King.

                        https://youtu.be/Qn16DsftSjI - Listen to this on American bullshit. This country truly is full of ****.

                        First off, Kavanaugh showed that he is not fit to be a Supreme Court justice and several said that after the hearings.

                        You're stupid and always have been. You're incapable of paying attention. You're biased and stupid, and that is what makes it worse.

                          Which corroborates with my statement.

                          You're biased and stupid
                          I cited three facts. One, Democrats did not cite instability as a justification to deny his nomination to the DC appellate court in 2003. Two, nor did they cite instability as a justification to deny him his nomination at the outset. Three, that after the hearings had already been held and after he defended himself by calling out the process as a circus, after the allegations of gang rape and other nonsense, did the accusation that he's imbalanced emerge.

                          Why didn't the Democrats include that in their statements during the hearings?

                          • Okay can we get back to news worthy issues, and not your personal problems and shortcomings? Kavanaugh showed incredible instability on the stand. He doesn't seem like he can keep his cool.

                            BTW, Kavanaugh. Stolen memos. Perjury.

                            Already went through with this for you. Here is another meme:

                              And your guess would be wrong. Regular death threats have pretty much been part and parcel with being in the public eye for decades now. It is not just politics either as celebs routinely get death threats for mundane things like hosting TV game shows. It is just the modern world we live in and does not make any one side special.
