And did all my men just shake their heads?

Sorry, I know #notall but damn, people, it’s hard to keep a straight head when so many men are looking us straight in the eye and saying “yeah, and?”

Yeah, she was a credible witness. And?

Yeah, we let her testify. And?

Yeah, we listened, that’s enough. And?

I cannot take one more yeah, and. Not One More.

The news cycles are dominated by partisan bullshit and it is for real making me crazy. I feel stupid even having to say this out loud but I’m not sitting here digging in with come hell or high water, Kavanaugh will not sit on the bench! Some people might (#notall) but I think there are a lot of people out here like me. People who just want an investigation by a nonpolitical body into a serious allegation. Like, they get that this can exonerate Kavanaugh, right?

I find myself in the rather depressing position of realizing that there are a lot of people in power who listen (probably), believe (probably), but just don’t care. That once the first domino falls – even when all signs point to wait, pause, investigate – the rest are tumbling into line.

And that’s the best I’ve got for today.
