On Friday morning, Senator Susan Collins of Maine said that she would declare later that afternoon whether she would confirm or oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. For the women who opposed Judge Kavanaugh, many of whom had traveled to Washington from all over the country, her decision was their last hope. By 2:30 p.m., half an hour before she was due to announce her decision, Collinss office on the fourth floor of the Dirksen Senate building was filled with protesters, most of them women, and members of the press.
The crowd was overflowing into the halls and stretching close to the entire length of the building. The women began quietly to sing the civil rights anthem We Shall Overcome.
When Collins began speaking in the Senate, they fell silent. A woman held a phone to her ear and relayed the remarks word for word to the crowd. Collinss statement was hardly spontaneous. It was measured and deliberate. As it became clear that she was going to support the nomination, people began screaming at the television. Youre done, one woman shouted.
By the time I arrived in the grand, sunlit atrium of the Hart Senate Building where much of the opposition energy had been focused these past two weeks, the mood was entirely somber. Collins had just ended her nearly 45-minute statement with a vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh. The lines sung by the women outside Collinss office still rang in my mind:
We shall overcome. Were on to victory. The truth shall make us free. Someday.

Believe all women...even when they are lying!
If RBG retires or assumes Room Temp, they will go absolutely berserk........................

“If RBG retires or assumes Room Temp, they will go absolutely berserk........................”
Nasty old crone would never retire with Trump in office. So, I’ll take the latter.
I have fantasies of Ginsburg running over Breyer in the USSC parking lot. Gun it, granny!
Notice all the professionally made signs, with the same color and font.
Soros spent freely on this loss.
Why is there a picture of the Gilligan Island crew in that woman’s hand? Survivors??? OMG...these people are certifiable.
“There’s a reason you aren’t married.”
The gif in post 4 is an all-time great, but in this case it is probably in the most appropriate thread for it, ever.
Its distressing to see these misguided people suffering so publicly every time the president wins. It would be much more seemly if they suffered in private.
Liberals are incapable of using logic or they wouldn’t be liberals.
All of those cats alone in their apartments....so sad.
Get off my Lawn and stay out my Elevator.
It’s just possible that it was photoshopped.
I believe survivors.....
Even if the survivors are lying about being survivors.
I think I get it.
