The Republican Party is HIDING over a MILLION pages of Brett Kavanaugh's record. (Most of it is from when he served in George W. Bush's White House.)

What are you hiding, @ChuckGrassley?

The American people deserve to know.

Let's be very clear here:


What are they hiding?

The American people deserve to know.

By HIDING Kavanaugh's record, the Republican Party is BREAKING THE LAW.

The Presidential Records Act is very clear that these files are part of the public domain and belong to the American people.

What are you hiding, @ChuckGrassley?

Yeah Brett Kavanaugh totally doesn't seem like an angry drunk.
This dude is scary.

Good morning everyone,

This is such an important day I could hardly sleep. I was up in the middle the night thinking about all the survivors stories I read this week. Millions & millions of women who’ve been raped, abused, harassed, intimidated and degraded. I shed a few tears.
I keep coming back to the same thought. The attitude of the Republican Party, of the entrenched corrupt members of power, all these sick (mostly) old (mostly) white men is this:

“Fuck you. We get to abuse you.”

It’s that simple.
When you boil down all the lies and evasions, rationalizations, attacks on character, bad-faith pedantic arguments, they simply do not add up.

It’s just a melee of of half-truths and brutal attacks.

There's nothing wrong with Elon Musk smoking weed on TV.

What's wrong here is that hundreds of thousands of black man are currently rotting in jail for far less.
Despite using marijuana at same rate as white people, black people are ARRESTED for marijuana at 3X rate of white people AND face much harsher sentencing.

6.7 million people, mostly men, were under correctional supervision in 2015—more than were enslaved in antebellum America.
A few facts:

There are roughly 2 million black men behind bars in the United States. (FIVE TIMES the rate of the gen population).

Of these, roughly one million are there for drug offenses.

Of these, roughly 40% are there w no public safety rationale.

This is called political courage.

Senator Cory Booker says he will release the confidential emails HIDDEN by the Republican Party to expose that they and Kavanaugh are LYING, even if it means he is ousted from the Senate.
It can't be overstated how much the addition of two black leaders, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, have changed the entire tone of this hearing.

They are brilliant, on-task, challenging the unspoken power dynamics and not here for the bullshit.
Mitch McConnell scorched the idea of norms and precedents when he denied Obama his constitutionally-designated Supreme Court pick.

This is why I admire what Booker is doing here. Throw out the playbook about "norms" and "civility" and go for the damn throat.

OK, Twitter, we're in these streets. What's the best PROTEST song of all time?

I'm torn between "The Times They are a Changin'" by Bob Dylan and "Killing in the Name" by Rage Against the Machine.

What you think?
These are great replies. Some of you really know your music. Not too sure on the death metal songs...

The early favorite seems to be "What's Going On?" by Marvin Gaye and I can't say I disagree...

I mean:
QUESTION: Why don't more artists make protest music in the modern era? Protest is clearly part of the culture right now.

Off the top of my head, I can think of "This is America" by Childish Gambino as the only "hit" protest song in recent memory. Maybe Kendrick "Alright" counts.

CYNTHIA NIXON: "Marijuana has been legal for white people for a long time. It's time to make it legal for everyone else."

God. Damn. Right.

Philando Castile was SHOT for it, so I'd say maybe there's an imbalance.

.@CynthiaNixon does not suffer fools:
