Brett Kavanaugh is a gift to all of those Stein supporters who said "both parties are the same". The vote margins toward Stein in 3 states could have prevented the Trump presidency if they had gone to Clinton instead.

I'm helping with "game day parking" for a non-profit, and the whole day-long tailgating phenomenon is bizarre. On the one hand, it feels like one of those cultural traditions that goes back to ancient times, but on the other hand it's cult-like and quasi-religious.

Overheard US pol comment regarding today's hearing.

I thought Trump chose Kavanaugh because of his opinions on President's being immune from investigation. It's obvious now that he chose him for another reason.

I've just released Mastodon De-Mob, an anti-harassment tool that lets users to block everyone who favorited or boosted a toot calling for harassment. mastodon-de-mob.codesections.c

Please feel free to test it out with the example URL I provided; that will only block a test account I set up for this purpose. Hopefully, you won't ever need it for real.

It also reports the harassing toot, which I hope will prevent the tool's abuse for non-harassing toots.

I want a Venn diagram of people willing to argue "Give Kavanaugh a break, he was only 17" and "Trayvon Martin got what he deserved."

Registered the assorteflotsam.com domain for another year. I guess this experiment with Mastodon is working out.
