Has anyone in the “it’s a fabricated smear by Dems/the media” camp attempted to explain why Neil Gorsuch didn’t get hit by an allegation? Was George Soros just, like, on vacation that month?

I think of this as often as any line of dialog from any movie.

Anecdote isn’t data, but I get so many random “oh yeah well what about 2016” tweets that I 100% believe this is affecting GOP enthusiasm

Problem: GOP polling finds that conservative voters don’t trust the polls and may not turn out in November. Solution: Fox News content telling conservative voters not to trust the polls.

Polls have shown most MN voters siding with Ellison on the current charge, especially after the accuser floated the existence of a damning video, then never released it. But Republicans have gravitated to the "two credible accusations of abuse" charge.

In both cases, a replacement nominee might cruise to victory. But the cases are very different. What seems to especially bug Ellison is a 2006 case in which *he* got a restraining order being rolled into this as "multiple accusations of abuse."

MN Democrats getting less than zero credit for conducting a probe of Ellison with their own lawyers -- probably should have seen that coming. (A parallel for Kavanaugh would be Senate lawyers probing him while leaving open option of pulling nomination.)

So my girlfriend’s parents put up a huge sign in their yard, but apparently there’s a county rule that you can’t have signs a certain size… so instead of getting a smaller sign or taking it down, he did this 😂

It's also not credible. I can imagine, say, courses where Zinn is the only *book* you need to buy but students also have to buy a thick packet of reading.

The email you quote describing 3 boys and 1 girl never claims that was an exhaustive list of people at the party. These were simply the people Blasey Ford identified by name. They have said multiple times there were 4 boys and 2 girls at the party.
