Democrats were the party of slavery and then Jim Crow. Today, they are the party of Socialists, baby killers and perverts.

Because I'm one of those hopelessly unfashionable people who would vote no on Kavanaugh simply on the basis of his crappy record on civil liberties, and because I have no love either for Democrats or Republicans, I haven't been that interested in the whole kerfuffle about whether Ford is telling the truth about that night in 1982 or Kavanaugh is or both somehow or neither somehow. The one thing that's certain is that I don't know what happened that night... and neither does anyone else commenting on it who wasn't there.

But as far as whether the Democrats should hold power again, I'd say the outcome at the intersection of least bad and least unlikely is that Congress and the White House are held by different parties. At least when there's gridlock the two branches seem to agree on fewer things that will screw us all.

Oddly enough, I actually agree with you in principle there MP.

Nevertheless, observing from afar just how unaccountable US administrations can be in their conduct of public affairs, I think that I understand why the US public would want to hedge their bets by electing Congressional majorities representing the opposing party to that of the POTUS; to act as a brake on the executive's excesses.

Nice platitude but nobody can name an executive excess.

Also everything the GOP and Trump have done together is good, and the future looks even better while the Democrats are Satan worshipping insane people.

Why would you want to ruin a good thing? Why would you vote in Satan worshipping insane people?

Only a triangulator.
