Judge Jackson is sitting there answering all of the GOP's "gotcha" questions while smiling and seeming unperturbed , making those trying to get her with those gotcha questions seem to be stupid and out of line. This is the same thing that Hillary Clinton did when questioned by the GOP for 11 hours and who ended up looking stupid, not Clinton. In the end, she will be on the court and of course all of the GOPers will try and make money from their donators from their gotcha questions. Same old same old politics.

She's playing the game just fine. I can't name one judge who is who they presented in these useless hammering sessions.

They are pathetic. Everything they say is projection, particularly yesterday. Dark money, that' refers to the Federalist society giving Trump his picks, let along all the dark money and foreign influence that got Trump elected. They talk about pedophiles, again, projection while they have rapists and other creepers in their party. They whine about unfair treatment, but repbucliasn put up hacks like Taliban Queen and kavanaugh with questionable experience and past that shows they will not be unbiased and follow the law, it it is showing.

Just like yelling Hillary is a crook meanwhile Bush admin had lots of convictions, and trump even. Yet, nothing for Hillary. And then try to claim Biden is a crook after Trump and the never ending parade of indictments, convictions, lawsuits that is still ongoing. Hillary testified and answered everythign, Republicans and Trump people refused to or pleaded the 5th.

EVERYTHING REPUBLICANS SAY IS PROJECTION

They are terrible people who think everybody else is as terrible as they are.

Everybody they hang out with is, so it’s not hard to understand. They think being shitty is how people are.

Yup, and that is evident their postings. Also, they have no empathy, and if they don't personally experience something its just not true. lack of empathy is probably the biggest common denominator in people being shitty people.

Yep.

If a nominee can't stay calm & cool for the hearings, how can they be trusted to the bench?

Which is why I believe Kavanaugh disqualified himself. God, was he a hot mess!

I never believed the rape accusation against Kavanaugh and posted that here then and through the years.

What I objected to is his disposition and nasty partisanship.

This lady is cool as a cucumber.

After he went nutso berserk at his hearing, I decided he should never be on the bench; he ain't cut out for it.

This lady is cool as a cucumber.

So far . . .

"Seem to be" is your interpretation, Judge Jackson need not even be in the same room with the G.O.P. questioners for their questioning to be
"stupid and out of line".

ACB has more class in one cuticle than you have in your entire body.
ACB is a reactionary, RWE. She is to womens rights what Trump is to facts. What if the New Yorker article below read,
"she’s the product of a Muslim legal movement that is intent on remaking America." ?

When you think that the GOP pushed through ACB in eight days, even before Ginsberg was buried, might have had a lot to do with how she was treated.

They want to seem stupid and out of line. They know they can’t stop the process, even disrupt it, but they know the base wants to see them act like ****ing idiots so they will.

Jackson: I Never Called Bush or Rumsfeld ‘War Criminals’​

After a lunch break, Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) makes some brief remarks questioning whether Judge Jackson ever called President George W. Bush and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld “war criminals,” as Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) said during his questioning in the morning session.
“Why in the world would you call Secretary of Defense [Donald] Rumsfeld and George W. Bush war criminals in a legal filing? It seems so out of character for you,” Mr. Cornyn said. Judge Jackson responded that she didn’t remember that reference.

Mr. Durbin said, based on his research over the break, he believed the reference was to her service as a public defender in which she filed several habeas petitions against the U.S. naming Messrs. Bush and Rumsfeld in their official capacities. In those petitions, one individual alleged the government had sanctioned torture against the individual, which would constitute a war crime, he said.

“So to be clear,” he concludes, “there is no time that you called President Bush or Secretary Rumsfeld a war criminal?”

“No, thank you, that was correct,” Judge Jackson responds.

"Seem to be" is your interpretation, Judge Jackson need not even be in the same room with the G.O.P. questioners for their questioning to be
"stupid and out of line".
