Make it stop. Oh, please, make it stop. I’m tired, I tell you; tired of all the winning.
Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to serve as a justice on the Supreme Court of the United States with a vote of 50-48 on Saturday.
After weeks of a brutal fight and an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault made against him, several key swing senators voted in favor of confirming Kavanaugh, including Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Jeff Flake of Arizona, and Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia — the only Democrat to cross party lines.
Good quote from…uhh, Mitch McConnell?
“A vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh today is also a vote to send a clear message about what the Senate is,” he continued. “This is an institution where the evidence and the facts matter. This is an institution where the evidence and the facts matter. This is the chamber in which the politics of intimidation and personal destruction do not win the day.”
“It’s been a great political gift for us. The tactics have energized our base,” he said, adding: “I want to thank the mob, because they’ve done the one thing we were having trouble doing, which was energizing our base.”
Heh. And then there’s this:
All I know is that I went to bed in reality and woke up in a world where Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, and Susan Collins are awesome

Hats off to the Justice Brett Kavanaugh, for standing his ground with resolve and dignity under one of the most abominable shitflings ever undertaken by the orcs of Mordor on the Potomac; to Collins, Graham, and McConnell, for doing the right thing under tremendous spressure; most of all, to the greatest President in American history, the great Donald J Trump, for engineering yet another resounding victory for the side of the righteous. Good job, sir.
And: keep ’em coming.
Update! SUCK IT, SHITLIBS.
