This from @guypbenson is comprehensive. #HoldTheVote, both in @senjudiciary this week and Senate next and allow voters in November to judge their senators on the ballot accordingly. Of course Dr. Blasey Ford will have ample opportunity to state her allegations often, but delay
after the allegation has been in the ranking member’s possession for so long and not raised is to diagram a destructive playbook for every future nomination. Senators should have to exercise their judgment and be accountable for it. #HoldTheVote. Tomorrow’s and this week’s shows
and the following week’s until the vote will be little else besides updates on #Florence recovery and #HoldTheVote.

I invite and welcome @sbg1 on my show almost weekly because she’s a smart, I formed, funnily liberal, but her conclusion in this piece —“For his part, Kavanaugh will take a seat on the Supreme Court forever shadowed by allegations that few will believe fully disproved”— is wrong.
In a nation of 330 million a few percent will always talk about the allegation as though it met the minimum standard @SenatorCollins described, but there will be no shadow as that will be a distinctly #BlueBubble point of view. @SenatorCollins spoke for the fair minded and the
reasonable, not those bent by ideology, and insisted that accusations must meet the “more likely than not” standard we live our lives by every day. The noise from the left, indeed the screaming of the mob, hates that standard, but it saved #JudgeKavanaugh and his reputation is

It will keep falling because Americans are fundamentally decent and fair minded, #JudgeKavanaugh obviously qualified, he and his family tortured because the left demanded it, and the process so transparently deceptive. I hope his daughters and wife can come to forgive the Ds.
Of course I am assuming his conformation based on early, whispered assessments that —as expected— Dr. Ford’s account could not be corroborated. But the nomination could still fail and, if so, the GOP’s majorities and perhaps the party will be shattered for years. Because of the
manipulation of a woman who wanted only to be anonymous, who could have remained anonymous, and because of the unleashing of the worst McCarthyism since McCarthyism. It is a sober lesson on the frailty of due process and the rule of law that this is even close.

Good morning. Today's show is a replay of the high and low points of yesterday's hearing on #JudgeKavabnaugh, from the high points of his opening statement and @LindseyGrahamSC to @SenBlumenthal mangling "falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus," Senator Spatracus w/ a focus on choice
facing Senate, and the hope that all 51 @SenateGOP --aware of @JoeManchinWV rule: "There has to be more than just an allegation"-- will vote to confirm #JudgeKavanaugh, defend his honor, his family's reputation, future nominees and the reputation of the Senate. First full Senate
vote is Saturday at noon. An allegation that is 37 years old, which didn't even become verbalized for 30 years, cannot grow in significance because of the obvious trauma the accuser has suffered. Hoping @JeffFlake leads the way with his explanation in Committee today, and others

The senators involved in this charade and ambush have set for themselves, their children and grandchildren the inevitable trap —“Didn’t you/your father/mother/grandparent vote against #JudgeKavabaugh based on a mere allegation and one much rebutted. And
you are asking us for fair play?” Decency, ethics faith will protect many of them but not all people are decent as we have seen in this process. Some scheme to destroy. This is ammunition in the slander wars, a playbook, and it will haunt those who don’t reject it loudly.
When @LindseyGrahamSC invoked Justices Kagan and Sotomayor he was sending up a flare that those days are over if this works. It’s going to burn down the remaining courtesies of the Senate. Beginning with the next nominee —if #JudgeKavanaugh isn’t confined— who will move in

Judge Garland is a fine man, as Judge Kavanaugh has testified. @senatemajldr, using majority, declared #NoHearingsNoVotes, pursuant to the “Biden Rule” and the people voted. The smearing and politics of personal destruction never directed at him, or Justices Kagan/Sotomayor. And
lest you forget, though I doubt you do, the maneuver of nominee blockade was invented by then Judiciary Chair Leavy in 2001-2002, and of judicial filibuster by Leahy and Minority Leader Reid in 2003-2005, until threat of nuclear option by Leader First brought about “Gang of 14.”
When Harry Reid deployed #TheReidRule —that rules of a continuing body could be changed by simple majority— Harry Reid brought down all remaining guardrails and made judges simple majority votes. Now @senatemajldr should —if smears against #JudgeKavanaugh work— use #TheReidRule
