Fox News anchors have evaluated the morning's testimony as "a disaster" for Kavanaugh.

Even FauxNews at this point is talking about how badly this is going for the GOP. I am in awe of how brave Dr. Ford is. She is an inspiration and a true patriot.

I watched this brief interchange and thought: this is more catastrophic for them then I really could have possibly imagined. We all get why the older men on the committee didn’t want to question Blasey Ford. But gender isn’t the only factor here. A woman treating her as a hostile witness and apparently being tone deaf to how the testimony had already gone is just as bad and maybe worse. Especially when everyone knows she is there as a stand-in for the Majority’s moral cowardice. It was so bad I even felt bad for Mitchell. After all, she’s only had a few days to prep and in the nature of things lacks the authority to shift gears from her brief.

In substantive and societal terms this is a powerful, morally healing moment. In political terms, for the Majority it seems like nothing short of a catastrophe. What’s more it is something the Majority one hundred percent brought on themselves: first attacking Blasey Ford’s credibility, then trying to bluff her out of testifying, later trying to rush the vote and finally in thinking anything good would come of having their question time used as a hostile cross examination.

It is hard to imagine how this could have gone any worse for Kavanaugh or the Majority.

I just turned this on right in time to hear Mitchell basically bury the GOP for how poorly a format this is for a hearing about this topic.

Also Grassley just called her brave for coming forward...IDK but that felt damning to me.

This was really terrible for the GOP.

I was absolutely certain Kavanaugh would be confirmed but now I can totally see some GOP senators folding like cheap lawn chairs. Murkowski is probably already gone and they only need one more. And you can bet if they get one more there will be another 2, 3, 4 coming out just to appear like they are human after all.

Wow, since the last time I've seen an interview with Lindsey Graham, he's turned into a reaaaaal piece of shit.

He needs to be cancelled.

but it was the Democrats fault.

Lindsey's tantrum was basically admitting that their nominee is toast, or at least an anchor around their political necks.

Dr. Ford is an American hero.

You have to wonder what the Russians/Trump presented Lindsey for him to turn so far and fast to a Pro Trump stooge.

While he’s always been a war monger, he was a bit like McCain in that he didn’t back down to Trump (for the most part)

Now, he’s 100% behind him.

If Murkowski is against the confirmation, then Collins is too. Neither is going to be the 50th vote. And yes, if they are against then some more will 'suddenly' have reservations too.

My gut is saying he withdraws when it's clear they will not have the votes. For the GOP, this is the least worst outcome for them.

CNN reporting that Kavanaugh plans to come out "angry." Not sure that's the way to play this.
