"Race only seems to matter to you righties."
OMG!!! Don't know where to start with that one. Yours is the party of identity politics. Ingredients for separate thread.
Several women came forward with identical stories about Kavanaugh and you righties and MAGA fan boys simply laughed it off as "guys being guys". Since you fail to provide links, that speaks volumes about what you think. Just because you say something does not mean everyone MUST believe it.
It sounds like you believe Kavanaugh is entitled to the position but the people of Virginia do not have the right to elect who they wish.
It is interesting that none of this came out before the election. I wonder why? Maybe because you MAGA fan boys and righties believe you all are entitled to every position in the country?
:You say "identity politics" while Democrats say "giving a voice to ALL Americans".
The stories were identical because that’s what and how they were taught to say. Interesting how the DNC uses a particular phrase or buzz word and, sure enough, virtually every left-leaning media figure/organization soon begins using it, identical, to the syllable. And my lack of posting any links (sans request) somehow gets twisted into a conclusion about what I think? How are things in spin-dry country these days? The news was full of reports (hundreds, perhaps thousands) about claimed witnesses becoming forgetful, changing their story or backing out. But you want links. I’ve got better things to do than your homework but here are but a few:

https://www.weeklystandard.com/john-mcc ... -kavanaugh
https://www.dailywire.com/.../3-witness ... -party-ama
https://www.politico.com/story/2018/09/ ... etter-8369.
The guys I know weren’t laughing it off, and nobody I know took a “guys being guys” position on it. Do you have first-hand knowledge of this or is it another DNC talking point?
“It sounds like you believe Kavanaugh is entitled to the position but the people of Virginia do not have the right to elect who they wish.”
Quite a stretch. I believe the people of Virginia have the right to elect whomever they wish. If the image of a pickup truck with a Gillespie campaign sticker, confederate flag and Tea Party sticker attempting to chase down a group of young black, Muslim and Latino children was what made the difference, then the people got what they voted for. If Gillespie’s people did a better job of vetting Northam this thread wouldn’t exist.
You’d be surprised at how many people you refer to as MAGA fan boys despise Trump, or least think little of him. Many on the right agree with me. But his policies for the most part far outweigh his personal shortcomings. They had to vote for him though -- no way HRC.
Looking like Mueller will produce little or nothing, so the media will keep pounding away, chasing shadows. Congress will waste a lot of time going after Trump instead of legislating. Makes the voters happy, though.
Short of new developments, signing off now.
And Democrats IMMEDIATELY call for apologies and even resignations. A far cry from the Republican "oh, well.... just locker room talk..." and "oh, well.... they were young. Why ruin his career?"
The YUGE difference between Democrats and Republicans has absolutely and completely ZERO to do with the Russian plant in the White House doing Putin's bidding. Nice try at deflection.
