Another note on the sociology - this is also a bit of a watershed for sensible people of any political persuasion looking around and saying 'Wow, my side is awful'.

^either way this should be more than enough reason to not allow kavanaugh.
He doesn't think that intellectually disabled people have the right to even be consulted before a medical decision.
He doesn't think that intellectually disabled people are protected by the constitution.

Isn't that more than enough?

When it comes to this accusation, I have doubts about it's validity because of the timing, I'm not entirely dismissing it, but accusing someone of sexual assault/harassment has become a political move. It really shouldn't ever be used as a political move, because that makes people take it less seriously when it happens.

That is true and I won't deny it.
But this man still should not be on the court because of this.

Too late either way now, he was confirmed. 50/48

No we need to push gun control cases and get infringements on our rights rolled back.

One thing that confused me about Ford's testimony: why did she need caffeine? She kind of made a cutesy joke about it, but I found myself spending far too much time trying to figure out why she said she needed it. Was she tired? Why would she have been tired? So tired that she needed caffeine to function? She was assumed to be under duress. If I was under such duress but I wasn't tired, I'd just want to get through it, I wouldn't be like: "Hey, can I get a double cappuccino?"

Ooo, thankyou, very, very much!!

It was very difficult for me to call any of her poses, "pretty". LOL

I was glad to hear I was thinking along the right lines when I saw her do that head thing, and thought that she was feeling more confident.

Yesterday I read that she teaches this stuff to a class of CIA interns (or, something like that), and then, after watching this, and learning that she was PURPOSELY doing all this stuff..... I wonder if any of the "me too"ers would want to know this----probably not.

Also, in my reading yesterday, I found-out that she LIED to the committee when she said she had never coached anybody on how to pass a lie-detector test----she coached her retired FBI friend (the one she was staying with, in Delaware). It's absolutely amazing the amount of lying and manipulating this woman has done!!

Well, she got her 15 minutes..... She'll probably write a book, make a few mil----after the almost-mil she got off of GoFundMe (and since her lawyers and security, etc. were free, she didn't really incur that much expenses; so, she can put all of it in her pocket)..... She'll probably even be lucky enough to get a movie deal.....

Pathetic!

She probably didn't sleep much the night before, worrying / being anxious, etc.----I can understand that.

'Nothing to Gain,' Kavanaugh Accuser Raises Nearly $1 Million

During the crucible of Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearings, Democrats repeatedly asserted that Christine Blasey Ford had “nothing to gain” by coming forward with her explosive accusation of attempted rape against the Supreme Court nominee.

"You had absolutely nothing to gain by bringing these facts to the Senate Judiciary Committee,” Sen. Dick Durbin said during her testimony last month. This sentiment was echoed by other Democrats, who presented it as evidence that Ford was telling the truth. "I want to thank you,” added California Sen. Kamala Harris, “because you clearly have nothing to gain for what you have done."

In fact, Ford stands to gain some $1 million and counting from national crowdfunding campaigns launched by friends and other supporters, while she is said to be fielding book offers.

The potential seven-figure windfall, which she says she intends to cash in on – while still asking donors for more money – has some questioning her motivation for accusing the conservative judge after 35 years of silence, and whether it goes beyond personal or even political justice. Others worry the largesse sets a dangerous precedent: Crowdfunding, which unlike political donations is unregulated, could be routinely used in the future as a bounty for providing political dirt on opponents.

Two GoFundMe accounts have raised more than $842,000 for Ford, and the money is still coming in weeks after she testified and left the spotlight. The total does not include a third account collecting $120,000 for an academic endowment in her name.

I still want to hear audio of her voice in any context prior to the hearings.
