An excellent summary report in The Guardian:

Quote:
Then it was Kavanaugh’s turn, and it was as if she had never existed. Her testimony evaporated. What we saw was anger. Peak white male privilege. Something Kavanaugh was entitled to was being taken away. He cried, he raged.

One day closer to the realization of our new Authoritarian form of Democracy enforced by Trump the First.

Jeff Flake lives up to his name. What a flake.

Senator Patrick Leahy
Quote:
"It feels like 'Alice in Wonderland' around here. It's unbelievable where we are today. It's almost surreal. This Judiciary Committee is no longer an independent branch of government. And we're supposed to be. The Senate is supposed to be an independent, equal branch of government. We're no longer that. We are an arm — and a very weak arm — of the Trump White House. Every semblance of independence has just disappeared. It's gone. And I think that is something historians will look at, and they'll call it a turning point in the United States Senate."

I think that it is much healthier to commit suicide than to live in the Perverted States of America.

Being willing to make whatever changes are necessary, rather than being overwhelmed by despair is a better alternative to a permanent ineffective response to a transitory challenge.

Classic Christian doctrine holds despair as a sin. While I personally believe in neither Christianity nor sin, I still see the moral wisdom in this.

Only if one believes "sin" to be inherent and involuntary.
Despair is involuntary, ones' reaction to it may or may not be. The difficulty resisting a self-destructive response is the issue.
