wikipedia was altered in real time from someone inside the U.S. House of Representatives to refer to "devil's triangle" as a drinking game.

wtf

The only hyperbole is yours. If the President is engaged in illegal actions that are so egregious they can not wait until the end of their term they need to be impeached.

End of story.

Who cares? It IS a drinking game. ATS members have played it.

I personally never drank and could not tell you. I do know boof means fart though.

In essence, but publicly decrying his thoughts on unfair treatment by a political party, he's effectively poisoned himself to rulings relating to that party's plaintiffs, which unfortunately can be argued amount to a large amount of cases before the SC typically.

So then how did any SCOTUS get through their nomination?
They have all had real life experiances, if they discuss them they are poisoned against them?

From here on out any SCotUS nominee who has had ANY negative experience with ANY Republican ever is unfit for the position. Let it be known.

So let me get this straight. If someone treats you unfairly and you call them on it you necessarily must treat them unfair to retaliate? That's your argument?


Not quite. If someone is interviewing for the job of SC Justice of the US, a lifetime appointment, I would imagine they would be the kind of person to have enough control and forethought to not blunder into such a completely idiotic and moronic pitfall as Kavanaugh did. These are people we expect to the best in their field. If Kavanaugh is so emotionally swayed as to lash out in a fit of rage, its implied he doesn't have full control of himself as someone who could control their rage, and if he doesn't have full control, then there is the likelihood that his decisions are going to be affected by said rage.

It appears to me that none of them will be able to answer any questions in public.
I have never heard that before.
It is an interesting position.

I can only imagine you think your sitting in a room and can say 'end of story' and then walk out like a bad-ass and that's it, but unfortunately you're arguing with anonymous folks on the internet and there is no end.

My examples are not hyperbolic in the least, and just calling them out doesn't change that (much to your chagrin I'd imagine). Even something petty can serve to the benefit of both the President and the Senate Majority. You are living in a bubble of desire where you believe your righteous and virtuous Republican Senators (all of them) are so goodly and righteous that they wouldn't take advantage of illegality to their benefit. Perhaps you'd be surprised to find out that its almost the norm more than the exception among politicians.....

this confuses me more than any other part of this fiasco
were it not a drinking game would a consensual 3 way in high school disqualify him from service?

Your imagination keeps leading you down roads that don't exist. End of story isn't walking out or badass. It means that is the only way it should work. Your hypothetical where the entire system is broken so we need to break it further is fueled by your partisan hate.

Showing a propensity toward conspiracy theories, showing political bias and lying are real good reasons why he should move on. I hope the dumb bastard looses the job he has not. He doesnt deserve to be a judge of anything but a drinking game.

Its painfully simple really. All they have to do is not call out anyone specifically, and there can be no appearance of impropriety. Its like law 101, and the fact that Kavanaugh bumbled into it in a fit of rage is extremely telling of his actual 'worth' as a SC nominee. I don't begrudge the Republicans trying to put through the most partisan anti-abortion/anti-immigration/anti-presidential criminal vulnerability nominee they can find, I'm more just rather incredulous they're trying to shove this hack through when there are a dozen stone cold Evangelical Republican hitmen nominee's that would have breezed through this thing....

And I personally know and used the term boofed in the 80s. I never knew it as anal sex, but since both deal with the anus it's not surprising it has a dual meaning.

"The explanation of Devil's triangle does not hold water for me," said William Fishburne, who managed the Georgetown Prep football team while Kavanaugh was a senior.

Maybe you should run for senator so your opinion on supreme court justices qualifications will actually matter.....

Except that's projection on your part. I don't hate anyone we're discussing here, I'm merely calling out a constant aspect of human nature and how its foolish to think that folks are going to immediately take actions against the best interest of pure benefit to themselves. Its not a fairy tale idea or an outlandish theory, its literally a core aspect of being human. If the senate is the only entity to bring criminal charges against the president then there are going to be scenarios where the president commits crimes that benefit senators. To claim that the senate would never be in the situation is the acme of naivety.
