Does character matter?

DOES CHARACTER COUNTWe believe it does.

But if you’re watching the hearing in Wonderland, clearly we see it does not.

The antics, demeanor and political jockeying of these seriously old white men demonstrates that they sold their claims to character a long time ago. Many of them cannot even recall when or if they even had character (the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual).

Just watch the Senator from Iowa or the one from South Carolina. Gawd! Graham is way off course … and maybe out of bounds. 

Or the bozo from Connecticut. Remember when he misspoke about his military service? He didn’t misspeak; he flat out lied. Yet he has the temerity to ask folks to seek truth.

Republicans were too afraid to do the questioning on their own. The images of the 11 white men who make up the Republican committee membership questioning Ford were bad on their own.” – VOX


Strident is not a “Supreme Court Justice” characteristic. But there was a face of humanity when his tears appeared.

Watch and listen to the hearing here.


Garrulous, churlish and condescending, too.

Judge Judy shows those characteristics from time to time, too. And she’s not highest court material.

O-o-o-h-h-h, The Senator from Iowa found the will to do the right thing, somehow. 4:43 pm.

There’s a lot of POTUS in the candidate’s responses and demeanor.

The partisan shill from South Carolina is now in throwing rocks. 4:46pm. Would you ever want to apply for a “job” with the South Carolina lawyer? And he’s seen plenty of despicable things.





  1. Would anybody like to have Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice? Considering his actions, refusals to answer questions, being out of order, partisan, and downright hateful, I certainly would be ashamed to have this guy on the SCOTUS.

    And it does not surprise me at all that Trump went over backward praising Kavanaugh’s histrionics.

    Of course the good old boys – Grassly of Iowa is 85 and totally in the weeds of the swamp.
    Also, on the other side, Feinstein just turned 86 and is up for re-election against another Demcorat. OMG!

    The TV show we saw today did not represent justice, it did show how bad American politics can be.

    It make one believe that we are up shit creek without a paddle to get out it.

  2. You ask about character? Yes, indeed, there were a lot of characters in today’s sad show. Perhaps we could assign several of them to nursing homes or senior centers.

  3. Exactly … it’s time for this retirement home to be cleaned out.

    “Currently, there are eight senators who are in their 80s, 17 are in their 70s, 38 are in their 60s, 23 are in their 50s, 13 are in their 40s, and 1 is in his 30s.

    “The average age of Members of the House at the beginning of the 115th Congress was 57.8 years; of Senators, 61.8 years, among the oldest in U.S. history.”
