Local GOP claims Warren's DNA test as useless as Dr. Ford's recollections

The long knives butter knives Play-Doh knives are coming out for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who had the temerity to take a DNA test incontrovertibly proving what she’d always said was true, but which our pr*sident has still refused to accept: One of her ancestors was a Native American.

Connie Chung to Dr. Ford: 'I, too, was sexually assaulted'

This op-ed from veteran journalist Connie Chung is a must-read. Shocking, but in light of everything that’s happening right now, not really that surprising. It may bring you to tears, it may make you shake with rage. I can almost guarantee it will elicit some kind of strong emotion. Republicans have no idea what kind of sleeping…

Want to See How Kentucky News is Covering McConnell's Actions on Kavanaugh?

The NBC affiliate in Lexington reported this statement — issued about 18 hours ago – from McConnell on Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee: The Senate and the nation heard two witnesses testify under oath to completely conflicting recollections.

Vulnerable GOP Congressman Shares Meme Smearing Dr. Ford

Iowa’s Steve King is a despicable human being, and not just because he is an unapologetic white supremacist. When he’s not posting propaganda from neo-Nazis, he’s sharing vile memes.

Flagship publication for Kavanaugh's religion just asked him to withdraw

The Jesuits, a religious order in the Catholic Church, were understandably ecstatic when Donald Trump picked one of their own for nomination to the Supreme Court. (If confirmed, Brett Kavnaugh would be the fifth Catholic judge.) Kavanaugh has repeatedly and prominently highlighted his Jesuit Catholic faith, and even quoted the former Superior General of the Jesuits when accepting his nomination,…
