When it comes to the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, remember one thing: The math is the math is the math. Nothing else matters...Ten GOPers remain undecided. They are Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La.; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Bob Corker, R-Tenn.; Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.; Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; John Kennedy, R-La.; James Lankford, R-Okla.; Jerry Moran, R-Kan.; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; and Ben Sasse, R-Neb...Know this: a nominee on the verge of sailing to confirmation doesnt appear on national television with his wife to make his case.

Collins: I dont believe Kavanaugh will repeal Roe v. Wade
JEFF FLAKE SUPPORTS ADVANCING KAVANAUGH NOMINATION IF ACCUSER REFUSES TO TESTIFY
CORKER INDICATES HELL SUPPORT KAVANAUGH REGARDLESS OF WHAT TRUMP DOES
This is bologna. He’s at 49, minimum. Only Flake, Murkowski and Collins are in the air. Saying “Moran hasn’t officially announced support” is just goofy, like saying “only 20 Senators oppose Brett Kavanaugh” because Chuck Schumer hasn’t officially stated how he’ll vote.
Murkowski said that she wants to keep her vote to herself until after Ford puts on her show. Will she vote to confirm?
By the way, will the Committee keep us from viewing the hearing? Will it be private to suit Ford’s plotting and scheming?
And there are at least a couple of Democrat senators in Trump country.
Oh. “Urp” is dinosaur talk. It means barf. ;-)
He wont be short of votes after November. We pick up 6 seats. IMO
House gains between 5 and 15 seats
Jim Jordan is speaker after January
Hey. It can happen. Why anyone would vote democrat after all this is simply nutz
Clickbait from Pergram
On Kavanaugh. Talked w/multiple GOP senators today. Many are privately worried about the precedent which could be set to torpedo someones life and career based on allegations which are impossible to prove and date back decades.

Multiple GOP senators say they want to hear from Ford. Many of the senators confided in Fox that they could in fact vote against Kavanaugh if they hear something in Thursdays testimony which could influence how they see him.

So, it sounds like if they had to vote today, they’re voting yes though they could vote no depending on what Ford says, if she testifies.
Yike, what a fugly bi*ch.
These Senators will have blood on their hands with the destruction of the career and lives of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family. The Republicans completely botched this nomination process and allowed the hearing to turn into a circus. They should have shut down Diane Feinstein’s letter because of the late nature of of when she put it forward. They should have ignored the nonsense accusation just like the Democrats would have done.
Brett Kavanaugh has been falsely accused by lying women, coordinated by the evil left and they have allowed this good man to be viciously smeared in America. The only way these senators can remedy this horrific situation and the tainting of the life and career of Kavanaugh, is to immediately drop any hesitation by supporting and voting for Kavanaugh’s nomination. If not, they are 100% to blame for the smearing and destruction of this man. Good people have to stop evil. We know what the Democrats are now for sure and if these Republican senators don’t stop this evil by standing with Kavanaugh, they now take the blame!
Yes. This whole sordid episode in American history would end now, if either RINO Murkowski or Collins would act like a conservative for their state.
Flake is already gone. And we know Democrats and the media will be themselves as much as the GOP lets them.
None of them are undecided on Kavanaugh.
They are undecided - ie scared- how their vote could harm their reelection chances, fundraising, other perqs etc...
It’s all political.
Gofundme has been set up for Judge Kavanaugh:
NewsCorp execs endorsed John Kerry in 2004.
Fox News isn’t conservative
And that’s why she’s no longer the public face of Ford’s team of lawyers.
If all of those people are undecided, McConnell needs to be removed as majority leader.
The grotesque show is going far enough to make all sane voters feel slimy and nauseated, and it will go further. So voting yes to confirm will be like taking a shower for those four Republican senators who are playing head games for their small but noisy herds of mad cows back home.
More! More! ;-D
*Flush* *Calling earl again* “Earl!” *Flush*...
Yes. That seems odd. Hard to tell what’s going on there.
