Flake, Manchin, Collins and Murkowski all had a private pow-wow together last night.


I would highly encourage you to rephrase that... some people might get the wrong idea. You know, like boof, fffffffourth of July and devil's triangle.......

Devils Triangle: I was in a fraternity, and there was no quarters game called Devil's Triangle. I literally laughed out loud when he tried to explain it away with that weak quarters game excuse. Every guy in a frat knows what a devil's triangle really is.

Why dont you guys just let it play out instead of playing Madam Cleo predicts...
You get all worked up over something that you think is going to happen but has not happened yet.
Just wait and see.

Actually that's what we have been saying. Rather than a media circus this should have been handled privately and then the results released. Except you'd hate that. Hypocrite.

How can you miss that this is obviously a politically timed stalling tactic?


The Republican "stalled"/refused a hearing for Merrick Garland because "it was an election year". Now, the Repulibans want to rush Brett Kavanaugh through confirmation because the elections are coming. Irony or hypocrisy?

And?

Just because there wasn't where you were at doesn't mean there never was one.

You do know that sometimes there are local and regional variants of things? Right? Even local and regional names for things?

Anyone who doesn't believe me obviously hates babies.

Psst... look at who's the supporting party of abortion. You're stating the obvious already. Just sayin'
So is it equally fair to speak in terms of 'the party of letting women choose' and 'the party of not not letting women choose'?


As in "letting women choose to kill a third party free of consequence" choice? Absolutely, I am opposed to that 'freedom of choice.'

And we care about an innuendo he made 35 years ago as a joke, assuming it's related to sex, why?

ETA: I played games in HS and college that we made up and you would never find on Google or anyone that has any knowledge of it.

I did not realize there was a Presidential election this year. Who is running?

It's exactly what Kavanaugh and Judge tried do with Dr Ford, but were too drunk to pull it off.

I grew up in the country. Devil's triangle was the area of a particular road where we would often hang out after school, or if we had one...a school fight would almost always happen there.

Different strokes for different folks.

Not sure why people keep repeating that. That will not apply until the 2020 cycle. There is no Presidential election this year. At least in the United States. Which is why even Democrat leaders are not using that right now.

You see if Democrats push that then the next Democrat President will be held to the same standard, which would be the first time in history that has been the case. You have clearly misunderstood that this is not a Presidential election year.

Double post. And no that's not a sexual innuendo...

You're not fooling anyone. If the Democrats had the majority in Congress right now, they'd be stalling all nominations just like they're trying to do now. In fact, someone mentioned that the Democrats are already holding up 150 current nominations for other positions they are refusing to fill. Turnabout is fair play.

Sure, its purely anecdotal, but its still suspicious akin to me using a descriptor like 'Gangbang' to label a frat game where we all sit around in a drum circle....

I don't think Booker is as exposed as you think he is when you read specifically about that confession.

Either way and more to the point, they are not going to be final nominees. They are just outfront to draw fire.

Just my opinion.

I often played something called Mao in college.

Not run across many others who know what it is.

Trump seems to think it's all about him. There certainly is a lot riding on a "red" or "blue" wave. According to Trump, a blue wave will equal impeachment. A red wave will mean he gets everything he wants. So yeah, this election seems to be very important to the President, Republicans and Democrats, like never before.

Its not the innuendo or the implication of having sex (via whatever codewords he and his friends used at the time) that's the problem, but rather him lying about it for whatever reason.

Because the standard Mitch McConnell espoused whilst delaying Garlands nomination for almost a year until it expired, was during an "election" year. Not a "Presidential" election year. A SCOTUS nomination requires the approval and consent of the senate in addition to the executive branch. Both offices are directly relevant to "election year" and there is very much a Senate Election in a little over a months time.

The Democrats don't have a chance in hell at impeachment. It would require a vote of 2/3 of the Senate and the Democrats will never win enough seats to make that happen.
