..."false memory" could be offered as sufficient evidence to basically ruin an entire career devoted to public service? I don't believe we can establish a precedent of factually vacant, but emotionally compelling accusations being sufficient weight to ruin someone's life...

Ok, my take on yesterday (thread):

It was supposed to be a dispassionate, bipartisan search for the truth concerning some deeply troubling, highly credible allegations. During Ford’s testimony, it was treated by both sides with the seriousness it deserved.

Then came #Kavenaugh
Guilty or innocent, I’d expect him to be upset. What I didn’t expect was the total abandonment of decorum, maturity, good-faith cooperation, and pursuit of truth. He shouted, interrupted, evaded, and outright refused to answer questions.
It was beneath the dignity of the position he’s nominated for, and what’s worse, he actually *framed* his recalcitrance in partisan terms—sweeping generalizations and even conspiracy theories about an entire political party, in an effort to shift both blame and focus.

I’m only posting breaking news/ hot takes/pithy rhetorical analysis/puns/selfies from #TribFest18 for the next few days.

Starting now.
At registration I’ve already run into two people I know—a former student who wants to go into publishing marketing (and working the @BookPeople table) & a former Aggie Agora speaker. Also bought @TheRickWilson’s book and hoping to find him irl so he can sign it for me!
Y’all! So excited to see @DLind @cjane87 & @mattyglesias talk about the weeds of Trump’s boarder wall. #TribFest18

Linda Sarsour gets arrested again continuing to violate Sharia (Islamic law) w/ her form of Jihad, she proudly proclaims.
I'm still waiting for her mugshot w/out her hijab which is another violation under the very law she advocates.
Where's Linda Sarsour's mug shot w/out her hijab? I don't believe she was ever booked
It looks like they released her just as they did in NY when she was arrested at Trump Tower
She openly promotes Jihad against our government
How is she not listed as a #RadicalLiberalTerrorist ?
Let's not forget that not only does she advocate for Sharia & call for Jihad against US Gov & @POTUS
#Q uestion
Who gave her a pass to get into the #KavanaughConfirmationHearings ?
Linda Sarsour "Fighting Trump is JIHAD, Muslims have NO need to assimilate"
