Good evening, humans! How fare you this night? What’s that – me, you ask?
Yeah…the mind and body weren’t very cooperative today. Since my normal response to lack of cooperation (Editor’s Note: …i.e., setting the offending party on fire…) yes, that, didn’t seem appropriate seeing as how it was MY mind and body, I just had to grin and bear it. Well, bear it – grinning being decidedly not my thing and, frankly, very disturbing the few times I’ve attempted it. I’m fairly sure it has something to do with the horrific, Lovecraftian monstrosity that I call my face. Regardless, despite the mental and physical fog, a particular piece of lunacy leaped out to pierce the shroud and assault my mind, common sense, and sense of basic decency (Editor’s Note: and you know that’s really a low bar coming from EWE!) exactl- hey, watch it!
Upon seeing this, my immediate, gut reaction was something like:
Upon further time to process the Senator’s comments and stance, however, my calmer, more nuanced response was:
You know, this is going to sound selfish and petty, but…why do I have to do this? Why? For fuck’s sake, it is 2018 – why in the hell do I need to waste a single iota of my time and energy explaining why it would NOT, in fact, “be hard for senators not to consider who he is today” if Kavanaugh, a nominee for the Supreme Court of the United States, sexually assaulted a woman in high school. And is lying about to this very day, displaying no remorse or recognition that his conduct was improper. Why do we even have to fucking HAVE this discussion? What in the actual FUCK is wrong with you miserable sacks of watered-down carbon that this is something that even needs to be addressed whatsoever? (Editor’s Note: Sorry – he’s a little cranky tonight.)
Listen, what a lot of people may not know (although you’d sure think a goddamn sitting Senator would know it) is that Supreme Court Justices are open to impeachment and removal for “high crimes and misdemeanors” much the same way as a President. And that, short of the Justice retiring voluntarily or dying, is the only way they come off the bench. With that kind of job security comes a high standard of behavior that we hold our Justices to. This means that if Bill Clinton can be impeached over a white stain on his intern’s dress, while Kavanaugh is alleged to have teamed up with a fellow classmate to sexually assault and attempt to rape a young woman, then that should damn well disqualify him from even being considered for placement on the Court in the first place.
Which brings me to Orrin Hatch. You pathetic, sniveling, arrogant, senile son-of-a-bitch. You actually said, to national media, with a straight face, that even if Kavanaugh’s accuser is telling the truth, he should still be given serious consideration for the Supreme Court based upon “who he is now?” Well, Orrin, let me give you a little insight into that point of view. If you assume that his accuser is telling the truth, then Kavanaugh is someone who committed sexual assault, and possibly rape, in his late teens. When confronted with this fact, his response has not been to acknowledge his wrongdoings, admit them, illustrate how he has changed and grown, express remorse, or otherwise demonstrate anything in the way of character development. His response has been to deny any wrongdoing on his part, deny even being present, and call his accuser a liar. So, Orrin, if under your scenario his accuser is telling the truth, and Kavanaugh continues to deny any responsibility, that not only makes him a sex offender but a liar. And that doesn’t sound even remotely like someone that should be placed on the highest court in the country, even to a feeble-minded simpleton like you, does it, Orrin? Because if it does, then not only should Kavanaugh be swept out of Washington and back under whatever dark hole he crawled out from under, but maybe you and your fellow slime that place party line over good of the nation should join him there. – EWE
