Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
There had to be one at some point. Holy cow, we had an actual slow news day on Saturday! Yes, friends, for literally the first time since The Campaign Update was initiated in July of 2016, we did not have multiple major news cycles in a single day.
The biggest news was that Serena Williams, the greatest womens tennis player in history, lost in the U.S. Open finals to Naomi Osaka, and decided to blame it all on the umpire. Williams was completely dominated in the match by Naomi Osaka, who won the first set 6-2. Williams decided to start fighting with the umpire after he noticed her coach signaling to her from the stands, which is supposed to be illegal in the game of tennis although everyone does it. Williams, seeing the handwriting of a loss on the wall, decided to latch onto the umpire as her excuse, threw several tantrums, and ruined the first major championship for Osaka in the process, as Williams behavior left both women crying at the trophy award ceremony.
Sportsmanship is a lost art.
If Ben Sasse left the GOP, would anyone actually notice? The other big news of the day was the statement by Nebraskas RINO Senator Ben Sasse that I consider leaving the Republican Party every day, as if anyone didnt already know hes a liberal dressed in a conservative suit. Democrats everywhere cowered in fear at the prospect of heaping a big helping of Ben Sasse atop their already steaming plate of smarm and hypocrisy provided daily by Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. Their party is already filled to capacity with grandstanding jerks it may be the one place in Donald Trumps economy that has no more job openings.
Yes, its caused by their professors. A new study by Brigham and Womens Hospital finds that 1 in 4 college students suffer from a mental health condition. No word if 98% of them are journalism majors, but it seems likely.
The Democrat Partys far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing weighs in on Kavanaugh. If youre a normal person, i.e., someone who is perceptive and cogent enough to actually live in the real world, you know that the Democrat Partys base today is made up of three wings: Its left wing, its far, far, far left wing, and its far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing.
Outside of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, both of whom make Joseph Stalin look positively conservative, most Democrat senators line up within one of the first two wings from an ideological standpoint. Given that neither Sanders nor Fauxcahontas sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, you might be surprised to learn that the partys far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing which is by far its largest voting wing today has actually not been satisfied with the mob rule, showboating antics of the Democrats during the Kavanaugh hearings.
Thats right these hipster/social justice warrior/Antifa nutjobs are actually angry at their party leaders for not going far enough. To prove it, a group of them, led by the despicable cretins who run the Womens March, DailyKos, Friends of the Earth and Justice Democrats, sent a letter on Saturday to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer excoriating him and other senate Ds for not going far enough and for the hienous crimes of wait for it oh, you have to wait for this one KEEPING AN OPEN MIND!
Yes, friends, any Democrat Senator who did not announce how he or she would vote on the nomination before the hearings had been held is now persona non grata among the lunatic major portion of their partys voting base. Heres an excerpt from the letter:
Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to Trumps attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court, the letter said. But unbelievably, nearly two dozen Democrats have still not come out against Kavanaugh, and just last week, you helped Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fast track 15 Trump judicial nominees. That is not the leadership we need.
Note how it defines Schumers duty: Its not to listen carefully to the nominees testimony, not to carefully read the massive documentation related to Kavanaughs background and prior court decisions, not to carefully consider whether or not the judge is qualified for the job, oh no. To the radical left, Schumers and his entire caucuss job is to oppose. Period. No matter what. Oppose for the sake of opposing, without consideration, without apparent thought.
Because any Democrat who lets actual thought creep into his or her head might end up deciding that the real enemy to our nation is not the nominee, but the motley collection of nutjobs, malcontents, spoiled babies and nitwits who make up the preponderance of their partys voting base, and we cant have that, can we?
This is the milieu that Sen. Sasse says he thinks about joining on a daily basis. Thats really sort of extraordinary, isnt it? The voters in Nebraska really ought to factor that into their decision making when their Senator stands for re-election in 2020.
That is all.

If Ben Sasse were as clear thinking as he is principled, he would be awesome.
Sasse is an a$$.
Who was that “Republican” senator the Cornhuskers elected who was always siding with the Democrats? He was close to Colin Powell.
If it meant they could impeach Trump.....definitely
Is there any point in the conformation hearings? It looks like each senator made up his mind on how to vote before the hearings started. I don’t think anything Mr. Kavanaugh says will change the mind of Cory Booker or Kamala Harris.
No you mean Bob Kerry.....he was a dem
The GOP should dissolve.
Any of them who want to be Democrats should do so.
Any who remain should become nationalists, and go split up the Democratic Party.
That’s exactly how Chairman Grassley views it. Since minds are made up, it’s pointless to prolong the ordeal by dredging up more information. The committee vote and whole Senate vote will go as scheduled.
I really liked his opening speech at the Kavanaugh hearings.
That being said, I think he is one of a few senators who dreams of being John McCain’s successor.
Give the guy a break----Schumer was busy speed-dialing EMS for Nancy Pelosi as she comes to grips with the pending Democrat annihilation.
>>Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead in complete opposition to Trumps USSC takeover. <<
Or, as democrats put it “reaching across the aisle.”
That being said, I think he is one of a few senators who dreams of being John McCains successor.
John who? ... Oh! Yeah! That’s right... HIM.
It’s so nice not to have him around anymore. :-)

Nebraska is the state that kept re-electing Chuck Hagel. I don’t think they’ve learned much since. The good news is that he thinks he’s too good for the Senate. We’ll see.
I like how he and flake (and others) are disenfranchising themselves. They refuse to see the writing on the wall and instead insist on pretending things are the way they wish them to be instead of the way they are.
Sasse has a brain - why won’t he use it?
They would if he denounced Christ and accepted their god, satan, as lord.
