Well, it's Monday. My hump moment has come and gone. I have 3 more days of work before I get a day off. Then, I'm only get one day off. The scheduler split my week. I hate that. I want 2 consecutive days off, not one here and one there. She also scheduled me to do a clinic in 2 weeks. I don't do clinics. I will tell her today, or tomorrow. Mondays are usually busy, filled with meetings for Supervisors and Managers. That's one thing I don't miss.
There was an interesting article in Bloomberg this morning on Susan Collins, how that 40 minute rationalization for her Kavanaugh vote was almost all hot air, how both testimonies meant nothing to her because she'd already chosen to vote with the 'old boys.' The question is if she knew this was her way of checking out politically. She may suspect so, but she will never admit so publicly.
And as the days go by, those statements about how this vote may have energized the base of fading away, scrubbed off the board to be replaced by questions about the midterms. Have the GOP put themselves into a serious quandary? Is this minority going to be put into their minority place? The suspicion is that this is the case. Oops, somebody shit in their pants.
And there are lots of discussions about Brett, himself, how every decision he's going to be involved in is going to be analyzed. He said he's a 'fair judge,' but people are waiting to see if he's nothing more than a predetermined robot vote for the Right. People are pondering the 'what ifs." Say the House starts investigating the Idiot Jerk, and the Idiot Jerk turns to the Supreme Court to stop the investigation, will Kavanaugh recuse himself from the decision? If he doesn't, what ever validity the Supreme Court has will be shit away as it proves it is nothing more than a rabble of right wing stooges. People are watching. But then you have to remember the GOP has never really cared about people. Nope, they are far too selfish.
Sometimes, you see, it is much better to lose in the short run. The proof is coming in less then a month.
