THE GUARDIAN: Look, I'd rather my team had a pro-choice justice appointed to the Supreme Court for life and their side had a good laugh at Obama walking around with toilet paper on his shoe like a fuckin' idiot, but this is the deck we've been dealt.
JOE.MY.GOD.: The vote to confirm Kavanaugh has advanced, mostly on party lines — except Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) voted NO, as I expected, and Joe Manchin (D???-West Virginia) voted YES, as I feared. Collins announces her final vote at 3 p.m. ET today; if she announces she is a NO, it could torpedo Kavanaugh, but only if Murkowski holds firm (she will) and only if Manchin is a NO. Some have said Manchin would never vote YES if he were the deciding vote; if he does that, he needs to be expelled from the Party. He's only useful in building a majority; otherwise, he is a moderate Republican.

HUFF POST: Bette Midler means well, but her use of that Yoko Ono N-word quote was really out of touch. Does it still need to be explained in 2018?! Apparently, as she vehemently defended herself ... before quietly deleting all her tweets on the subject. It's not that she's a horrible racist, but it's ignorant, and she should've just opened her mind and realized why.
