I know I'm coming in late in the game here but just wanted to throw my opinion in the hat, saying I do believe Mormons are more likely to be supportive of sexual predators because they have been trained to overlook this in exchange for supporting men in power.

I am skeptical of that. Show me the Democrats that were voicing support for Kavanaugh before the process blew up with the allegations.

Did you see Orrin Hatch's impression of Ford to a reporter? He called her "attractive" and "pleasing." 'Twas a very strange answer, one that doesn't even pretend that he knows women are actually people.

Yes I saw that. He is a terrible human.

Also, the way he complained about the porn star attorney made me wonder if he actually feels the same way about pornography that the church leaders do.

They weren't putting up much of a fight and Schumer made a deal at the end of August to fast track Trump's judges. https://www.truthdig.com/articles/schumer-cuts-deal-with-mcconnell-to-fast-track-7-trump-judges/ Why do you think Feinstein held onto the Ford information for so long? What do you think would have happened had she brought it out in July? Certainly the coveted FBI investigation would have been done and the nomination delayed. But it didn't happen that way.

Without looking at the interview, Hatch's response seems to be part of the "she was probably assaulted, but doesn't remember the attacker." An "attractive" and "pleasing" woman is attackable by just about anyone, just not our boy.

If that is an accurate narrative, there's more than one explanation, including one where the Democrats never wanted him.

Kavanaugh appears to be far from anything Democrats would want:

I agree and it seemed most democrats wanted Sanders as well. Most don't want all the wars and want medicare for all, not the Obama insurance lobby sell out. However, "democrats" like Feinstein and Schumer are there to listen to those from the 1% who donate heavily to the democratic party.

I know, right?.

I was pissed off when my asshole thread got booted down to telestial. You'd think we could talk about Heavenly Father's asshole in terrestrial but it's a no go.

____! I'm pissed as ____ when I think about it.
