Marked Judge

Angry Bear

What were they thinking? Apparently, they weren’t. The New Yorker released a an article on Sunday implicating Supreme Court candidate Kavanagh, in a second sexual allegation. Today, lawyer Michael Avenatti chimed in with a third allegation, which was quickly followed by a fourth.

Then just after digesting these turns of events, the twitter-verse exploded with news that deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was resigning or being fired, or that he was not resigning or not being fired after all.

I must confess that I too got suckered by this story, along with many others, including the markets, but after it became apparent that nothing was going to happen, at least today, rumors went rife with questions about who had originally planted the story. In the end this subject was tabled until Thursday, when Trump and Rosenstein will meet. Thursday is also when the original Kavanagh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will meet with Senate Republicans for a little tête-à-tête.

Thursday promises to be quite the media circus, with salacious testimony, palace intrigue and the clown prince orchestrating whatever new outrages that may come to mind. I should skip it and wait for the evening’s recaps, but I imagine that I’ll be tuned in. November cannot come soon enough.

  1. I cant help but feel that what passes for news is a confused messy Robert Altman narrative, driven by increasingly weird scenarios, alarming revelations and increasingly bold typeface. The plot is the
    churning momentum, the characters unlikeable, and the intrest is only in seeing how badly this will end. The total lack of accountability seems to be it’s reoccurring theme. I watch this story, with dred intrest knowing I will wish I was not watching this story. It’s like Watergate, Clarence Thomas, and Berlusconi had a baby with Vlad the Impaler, and in the end Satan wins.
