Why does it have to be Kavanaugh?

John Oliver takes that question on. This segment is long at more than 29:00 minutes. There are a lot of good moments so it’s worth viewing the whole thing. But the answer to the question starts at about the 25- 28 minute mark.

  1. Yep, they just don’t care and that is not all of it, they say FU to minorities, women, brown people, black people, Democrats…

    Is that OK with you Flake, Murkowski, Collins to be made fools of? Is that OK with you, you mfucking traitor to the party, Manchin?

  2. In other news, this is what trump is selling to his motherfucking stupid brigade who are lapping it up because they are fools.

  3. He is like the stooge they always wanted on the SCOTUS. Something tells me Roberts court may not like this taint if it ends up sticking to the Court.

  4. Watch this! wow… at least reporter said ‘I’m sorry’ as in ‘what the fuck’. Show this to every woman voter and vote these motherfuckers out.

  5. So he is using blackmail on Lindsey Graham, right? If any of these motherfuckers are buckling to him over kompromat, I hope they have the integrity to leave. Just leave, go away for the good of this country.

  6. Enter Squire Gaine and Lord Cynical

    Squire Gaine: “What news on Mr. Flake and the investigation into our schemes? I must confess, I have spent two sleepless nights because of him. I have a carriage at the ready, and have arranged for a ferry to Calais, should I need to flee at a moment’s notice.”

    Lord Cynical: “My good Squire, you have no need for alarm. I must agree that Mr. Flake has caused a bit of consternation, but it is of no moment. You see, Flake is a man who delights in having the spotlight upon him, so that the masses will believe he is a man of substance. But there is no substance, it is all a gull, as you soon shall see.”

    Squire Gaine: “Ah, those words are a salve to my torment. But pray explain further.”

    Lord Cynical: “Mr Flake says words, but there is nothing of substance behind them; they are like the rock that looks to the untrained eye as if it shows gold beneath, but instead crumbles to dust when examined. It was always thus with Flake. In this matter, he thought to gain fame and compliments by calling for an investigation, but somehow neglected to call for it to be a meaningful one. Our allies in Parliament and on the throne pretend to go along with it, but in reality, there is nothing there, it is a sham entire.”

    Squire Gaine: “They are not then going to examine our underhanded dealings,, or the untruths we have told? And nothing about–”

    Lord Cynical: “Squire, you are a dedicated servant to our plans, but you fail to understand the true nature of Mr. Flake. Had he actually wanted an investigation to unearth anything deleterious, he would have managed to demand a full and fair perusal of the facts. Instead, he plays to the crowd, as always, while actually accomplishing nothing. Our allies gave directions that nothing should actually be investigated; and Mr. Flake is now nowhere to be seen, except for giving meaningless interviews to the press. And when the report, as ephemerally vaporous as a transient mist, comes in, and tells us nothing, Mr. Flake will smile placidly, and say that he is satisfied, that he has done a great service. The service, Squire Gaine, is all to Mr. Flake. I hear he plans to stand for Minister before long, but in his fatuousness, he does not realize that we see through all of his pretension and ambition. We will cut him off like a weed, as soon as this episode is over. He has given you and others a few moments of unwarranted anxiety, but not I. I know Mr. Flake, and I know how little is behind his words. A musket loaded with dust is not going to shoot down anything. And in fact, he may have done us an unwitting service, but causing us to look as if we are servants of the search for truth, and have nothing to hide. Bravo, Mr. Flake!”

    • Thank you! And St McPain is now campaigning from the grave against the Dem candidate in my congressional district (apparently filmed in 2016, and his family has disavowed the ads, but nevertheless…). Beware of Arizona Republicans in sheep’s clothing.

    • Love it.

  7. Just LOVE it!
    Thank you RD, always amazing posts.

  8. Off topic:

    Miniature house tigers–pets or menaces? 😛

    • Cats! You can’t live with them and you can’t live without them (once you have.) Kitty Bowl 2019! Be there or lose your hair.

  9. LOL, Yale wants to disown him, Harvard kicks him out, but Republicans want to put him on the Court.

  10. RD, this one is very easy. When your enemies hit one of your own with a vile calumny, then it becomes a simple issue of honor and justice. Not sure if your average lefty knows what those words mean, but that’s why it has to be Kavnaugh.

    • I need advice on honor and justice from a reactionary, and a white supremacist to boot, about as much as I need diction lessons from Elmer Fudd. 😛

      You lot know nothing of these things. Your righteousness is the righteousness of the scribes and the Pharisees.

      Your culture is a dinosaur, and I look forward to the asteroid which removes it from the drama of human cultural evolution–although I suspect the “asteroid” will be nothing more remarkable than simple demographics, combined with the growing righteous disgust of the youth of your own culture with your culture.

      The future is the rooster, Blizzy, and you (plural) are the dog.

      Now go play in traffic, you superannuated brat. The actual adults are trying to converse here.


  11. Wow, this is depressing. He is not even smart or intellectual or anything close to being scholarly. He is so unfit in all aspects!
