      Cowboys versus Redskins - now that just sounds correct.
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here along with THE Spaceman Spiff. Space is already on the sidelines, yucking it up with the important people. Me? I'm thinking how grateful I am for the 3-car accident on the beltway...
       
      If you cannot get up for this game, there isn't enough viagra made on earth for you. After all; the Redskins are hosting their eternal rival, the Cowboys. Winner will be sitting on top of the division, with a truckload of bragging rights.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Well, for starters, everybody and their mom is inactive. Chris Thompson Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Quinton Dunbar; all inactive. What a time to have have your top two receivers out. The chatter here in the press box is Washington should do what they can to bring in receivers - to include making a trade with the Raiders for Amari Cooper.
       
      Then there's the question of which Redskins show up? They could come out and light Dallas up. Or, post an anemic effort to suffer another embarrassing lost. Neither would surprise me.
       
      One this is for sure, the distribution in fans is something like 55-45 Redskins. Already an embarrassment. Until you consider this team has done much to earn the lack of support.
       
      Still, you have offer the finger in the middle to those fans who sold their tickets to Dallas fans. What were you thinking?
       
      Back shortly...
       
      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 10 WR Paul Richardson Jr.
      o   No. 23 CB Quinton Dunbar
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 55 C Casey Dunn
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
       
      The team held a touching tribute to my friend Rich Tandler, who passed this week.

      Half
       
      Did you hear the one about the team that got chance after chance but couldn't score more than a touchdown?
      That's right; they are tied at 7 at the half and completely anemic in the second half.
       
      "Against the run of play" is a term you hear in soccer all the time. It is applicable here. It means the better team is either tied or trailing.
       
      Whoever said football was fair?
       
      Washington needs to find a way to get hot in the second half. The Dallas Cowboys are infinitely beatable today.

      How do you like them apples?
      The Washington Redskins sent them home happy today. Along the way my ulcer started bleeding, I threw up twice, and peed the chair I was sitting in.
      Up by 10 at the two-minute warning, I did not expect to be hoping for a missed field goal to avoid overtime. But there I was, crossing fingers and toes and noticibly relieved when the ball bounced off the upright to seal the win.
      A lot of things had to go right for the Dallas Cowboys to even have a shot at the end. A lot more things went right for Washington.
      The Redskins held Ezekiel Elliot to just 33-yards rushing. They forced two fumbles by Dak Prescott, one of which went for a Redskins' touchdown, and sacked him a total of four times. 
      Ryan Kerrigan had his best day of the season, sacking Prescott twice, one of which caused the fumble for the score. Preston Smith scored the touchdown off of the fumble. Jonathan Allen and and Ryan Anderson each logged a sack. DJ Swearinger hit Prescott square on the ball to cause the other fumble by Prescott.
      And then there was the offense.
      Adrian Peterson defies time and physics in what he can still do on the football field. His ability to change directions instantly, the speed he still posesses, and his ability to play through multiple injuries is astonishing. He ran for 99-yards on 24-carries with a 4.1 yard per carry average. 
      Kapri Bibbs, the other back; added just 13-yards rushing. But as a receiver he caught 4 passes for 43-yards and the first touchdown of the game.
      Josh Doctson reeled in 3-receptions for 43-yards. Jordan Reed added 43-yards on his two catches. Maurice Harris logged 2 for 22-yards.
      Alex Smith had a adequate outting. He went 14/25 for 178 yards and a touchdown for a quarterback rating of 98.1. He was sacked once.
      His obvious miss of Jeremy Sprinkle running free in the end zone is almost cause for termination. Connect on that throw and the game is much more comfortable at the end. 
      The real stars of this show were the fat guys in the trenches. The offensive line that opened highway lane-wide holes for Peterson to run through, and the defensive line that wreaked such havok all game. 
       
      But we have to thank Dallas as well for things like an illegal snap to back the field goal unit up at the end. The holding call that negated the big gain one play before the sack/fumble/score was huge. They seemed to find ways to beat themselves.
       
      Despite the above, Dallas was right there until last miss that struck the goalpost. The win was entirely too close for comfort.
       
      But now that's it's over, I sure am enjoying the win.
       
      The Redskins sit alone at the top of the division after 6-weeks. They travel to New York next week where they can continue to help themselves with a win.
       
      But just because New York currently resides in the toilet does not mean they intend to roll-over and play dead. Washington will have their hands full if they don't get more production out of the offense.
       
      That's next week though. For now, I am intent on  enjoying an excellent victory. Against the Dallas Cowboys.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Talk soon!

So are the Dems and/or media going to be bold enough to straight up call the President out as a liar over this sham RBI investigation or will they continue to parse words?

 

Kinda but not really. As is the cycle.

It is ironic that THIS FBI, the one investigating Kavanaugh, is doing a good job but THAT FBI, the one investigating Russian meddling, is doing a bad job, is a witch hunt and is full of liberal Obama Muslim snowflake cuck millennial beta scum.

 

Ironic.

I do wonder if the GOP really thinks the BK story is over after confirmation? I can't imagine the media dropping the story anytime soon and it appears there are dozens of people who have interviews worth giving (that the FBI couldn't talk to) in regards to BKs history. 

 

That said..were what 48 hours after finding out about Trump's tax fraud (and the 18 months of research that webt into discovering the trail of lies) and one is talking about that anymore. 

 

Sigh.

Why Murkowski, still opposed, will be marked 'present' on Kavanaugh

 

More than a 1,000 miles from Washington, wedding bells in Montana on Saturday will cause one Republican senator to change how her vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is tallied.

 

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said Friday she ultimately will be marked as "present" rather than a "no" when the Senate is expected to confirm Kavanaugh to the nation's highest court. She will be using the "pair between senators" procedure so that Republican Sen. Steve Daines can walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day.

Murkowski said on the Senate floor that she is still a 'no" on Kavanaugh

"While I voted no on cloture today, and I will be a no tomorrow, I will, in the final tally, be asked to be recorded as 'present,'" she said.
The procedure is called a “pair between senators,” according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office. The senator who is on Capitol Hill would announce how the absent senator would have voted, and the present senator would announce they voted in the opposite way, but that vote is withdrawn and they are recorded as present, according to McConnell’s office.

You may be allowing your very strong views to cloud your judgment.  Maybe I am too, but I still believe half of America is celebrating the impending elevation of Judge Kavanaugh, a man who clearly believes the Constitution means what it says.

 

Also, I completely disagree with your characterization of the Judge, although I am sure quite a few of my fellow conservatives are saying many of the same things about Dr. Ford.

 

But it's not just my views. It's the views of the American Bar Association. The views of thousands of sitting judges. Even Catholic Nuns (probably the most pro life group in existence) came out against him. All these professional groups and pretty much every major group inn the legal field put their name down on paper to say Kavanaugh is unfit.

 

He is temperamentally unsuitable. He can't be dispassionate or a fair arbiter of facts.

He is an unrepentant liar of big facts and small. He perjures under oath repeatedly.

He has been brainwashed by conservative conspiracies.

 

Even if you remove Dr. Blasey Ford's accusations and all the other ones. Even if you ignore his room mates, friends, and all the other corroborating (and ignored) witness who spoke to his violence, anger, and drinking habits. Even if you remove the fact that by Kavanaugh's own written standards he is unfit to serve... the man is an appallingly inappropriate choice.

Is there a specific reason that all of those groups oppose Kavanaugh?  I've read repeatedly that they oppose him for the SC, but I don't recall their particular reasoning.  Is it the Ford testimony?  Is it his actions during the hearing?  His voting record?  I'm curious if they all have the same mindset as to why they oppose him.

In terms of Stephens, I believe he said that his temperament was entirely unjudicial. He said SCOTUS deals with hot issues and the ability to keep a cool head is paramount (paraphrasing). I think the ABA sited both temperament and an inability to be a neutral party. I didn't read what the Nuns had to say just saw the headlines.

 

The ABA probably also had huge problems with Kavanaugh's lying. For all we joke about lawyers and the truth, lying is taken very seriously in judicial circles. Not sure if they cited it, but that's probably because they are lawyers and don't want to make an accusation until it's criminally proven.

0k, after two weeks of sturm-und-drang, accusations, name calling, tears, protests, charges, counter charges and Kavanaugh shielding himself with his daughters like Martin Sheen in The Dead Zone, who is genuinely surprised at the outcome? The Rs mumbled, bumbled, stumbled through, looked right in the camera and lied to your face and then rammed it in like every cynically realistic person knew they would.

 

Shocking! There's gambling in this establishment?!!?

Just like you, I could list dozens of groups who support Judge Kavanaugh but that is not relevant to my claim that 1/2 of America is celebrating.  I’m talking about the citizens of America.

 

Also, what if I said this about Dr. Ford, realizing that she is not a nominee:

 

She is temperamentally unstable.

 

She has brought serious charges against a man but not one single witness among the ones SHE named will confirm her story.  Some outright refuted her story.  Not one other corroborating witness has been found even after a second FBI investigation.

 

She continually lied, misrepresented and perjured herself during her testimony.

 

She was brainwashed and used by her left wing lawyers and the Democrat Party.

 

Now, I don’t want to get into a debate about either Dr. Ford or Judge Kavanaugh.  Reasonable people can disagree and still be civil.  Dr. Ford is a sympathetic figure to me, pitiable really, and I wish her well but there are always two sides to every story.  We judge by the evidence and there was none in this case....none!

Very well could be about this. Once the precedent is set that it's no big deal for a nominee to fabricate and lie under oath, when they think it is necessary, in order to get in, it will soon go from the exception to the rule/norm.

 

I had people on my FB feed arguing that they don't care how much he lies, as long as he says what he needs to, to get confirmed because "millions of lives are on the line" which I could assume was referring to Roe. v. Wade.

I don't know if I'd say half.  Support for Kavanaugh is high among Republicans, but not Dems or Independents, and you can't ignore that those identifying as Republicans keeps dropping, so when you see polls that say "Support high among Republicans" the truth behind that it is high among an increasingly smaller amount of people.

We really need to make sure the FBI is independent of the President and that the President can't pull the kind of crap he just did in future investigations.

 

Like, what they just did is 100% out of the playbook of authoritarians.

 

Control the outcome of the investigation from the start.  When you get the results you crafted by manipulating the investigation, parade them around.

 

Shoot, all the norms Trump keeps breaking need to be enshrined into law.

 

 

 

As for Brett Kavanaugh, this battle isn't over.  The GOP showed us which rocks to turn over by forbidding super specific rocks.  Brett will not have a happy tenure.  He's gonna wish he withdrew before he's finished with.

You understand that when there are any inconsistencies, both sides will interpret them more or less charitably based on who is inconsistent.

As far as the ABA letter....has it ever been approved by committee or is it still just something the ABA president put out w/o abiding by protocol?

True, but the criticism of Ford is ironic because on one hand, the detractors were saying "This was 30 years ago, how is it even possible she could remember this stuff" then any time inconsistency about the story (which was really irrelevant to the alleged assault itself) they would say "seeeee she is a liar"

 

So you kind of can't have it both ways. Either it is hard to remember tiny details from 30 years ago or it isn't.
