There's one at the top of the most recent LOLpic page, actually.

Here's how it supposedly became a hate symbol for those wondering.

The internet hacker known as 4chan strikes again!
Russians manipulating hate to sow discord? Sadly it seems the libs are falling right in line.

If you ask me, this looks like a guy who likely heard those "OREO" comments one time too many in the locker room when he was coming up as a pro, and is trying waaaay too hard to get people to forget where he's from and how he grew up.

Of corsé, if you notice today, she's not quite seated center stage as yesterday.


As far as his appointment... So pubs believe that releasing 40,000 pages of docs related to Kavanagh just hours before the hearings begin, allows Dems ample time to review?
*seems legit*
She had a wet booger, okay? She's clearly rolled it around, and is getting ready to flick it on the back of Kavanaugh's blazer. And now she gets accused of throwing down a "white power" sign...

This is essentially a Seinfeld episode - she's even Jewish.


Dude - your tinfoil hat is cutting off the circulation... I certain this is the stupidest thing I've read on this forum in at least the last month.

And the fireworks show over DC continues.

Cory Booker just released confidential emails relating to Kavanaugh/racial profiling.
So. Is it required that he be terminated as a senator now? He wasn't going for reelection. Presidency run?


Weeeeeeee!

If there is a greater shame in all the government, I can't name it. The politicization of the Supreme Court is terrible and I can't see a remedy for it.

Thank you sir.

I certainly hope to see this change in my lifetime. But I'm not encouraged at this point in time.

I live in the North East and know about Cory.. was mayor of Camden, NJ.
Now is in DC trying to make a name for himself. He has a big mouth and an empty head. But your right ..nothing will happen to him.
Cory has always been a grandstander...
And he IS considering a run in 2020 for Prez...

As a side note.. (not passing judgment) Cory is rumored to be Gay. But has yet to identify himself as such.

Look at this Harris idiot. Kavanagh has more intellect in his pinky finger than this moron talking down to him.

Trying to figure out whose a bigger loser, Harris or Booker. Maybe we need a Mueller investigation into that!

Circus.
It's only a circus for the 0.00002% of people within the United States involved with this mess. Seriously, how many total people out of over 300,000,000 people in the country are seriously involved? Maybe 50-100?

The vast bulk of the country doesn't give one iota about all the shenanigans going on in the hearings.

As others have noted, in a few days or weeks, he will be confirmed and will be a new SC justice. The news and all of these yahoo's screaming and grandstanding will stop talking about it, and it will be on to the next 'world-ending crisis!'.

^ no doubt, because I've never taken a seat. I prefer afar pointing and laughing.
The circus was directed at him making sure he got his neon today by releasing some no-no material.

Imagine living like these politicians. Bs and martinis for a living.
I'd rather rub my knuckles on a cinderblock.

Well said Mr. Cruz.

Distrgard the caption about him losing it. The man was articulate and full on hitting the bullseye. Good job Ted. You deserve a lot of respect for your words.
