Tuesday’s Quick Hits: Ford vs Kavanaugh

When President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, was derailed the Democrats cried foul and said how unfair it was. Now that President Donald Trump’s nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is possibly being derailed, the Republicans are crying foul and saying it is unfair.

Welcome to politics in 2017-18. It’s a dirty business. I must admit the only thing better than watching a bunch of rich people beat each other up in Congress, is watching a bunch of rich people beat each other up on the football field on Sundays.

Surely the Republicans must have thought that the Democrats would use whatever they could to stop a Trump nominee. The Trump nominee had to be super clean. I know, don’t call you Shirley.

The Democrats found something on Brett Kavanaugh – from his high school days a mere 36 years ago – that could bring down the nomination. The Democrats waited until the 11th hour to spring it – those dirty rascals.

Full disclosure – I don’t remember my high school days, and I am around the same age as Kavanaugh. It was all kind of a fog. I still believe the movie “Dazed and Confused” was about my life.

Caught My Eye…

Well, I know what’s right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
But I’ll stand my ground
And I won’t back down
