Strange how the GOP keeps telling us this is how the system is supposed to work for one of their own.

They didn't apply this to Hillary.

In NJ, ads are hitting our tv. The ads against Menendez, who was not proven guilty, also seem to forget this concept.

Double standard is disheartening.

Double standard is disheartening.He was tried and found NOT guilty, that's not enough for Republicans.

Not only hypocrisy, but a sort of meta-hypocrisy.

The old Goebbels thing about accusing your enemies of the crimes you, yourself, are perpetrating runs completely rampant through the Party of Segretti.

Actually, unless I missed something, he had a hung jury. Which is not being proven guilty.

Protesters throw kegger outside McConnell's house




Washington (CNN)Protesters gathered outside the home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and staged a "confirmation kegger," in the final hours before the Senate prepares for a confirmation vote for Brett Kavanaugh's embattled nomination to the Supreme Court.


Bearing cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, signs with Kavanaugh's fraternity letters DKE, sunglasses and straw hats, the protesters sang "what do we do with a drunken justice early in the morning" and "what do we do with a confirmation early in the morning" to the tune of the sea shanty "What shall we do with a drunken sailor," followed by chants of "chug."

Not being found guilty is not the same thing as exonerated. He is in an odd neither guilty nor innocent limbo. Donn is correct.
