Save voting rights! Save reproductive rights! Save the integrity of the court (what’s left of it, anyway). CALL your blue state senators and tell them to keep up the good work (especially those of you with heroes on the judiciary committee!).

Evidence of perjury… and there’s a lot more evidence now.
Kavanaugh clerk flashes a white power sign… claims it was ironic, but was it really?
Kavanaugh refused to shake hand of father whose daughter died in Parkland, then it gets worse. No amount of soccer driving makes up for this lack of empathy.
Just a note to Lindsey Graham– when the constitution was written 231 years ago, abortion was legal in the US. (Poisoning a pregnant woman, for example, by poisoning her well, could have additional penalties in some states, but that was to protect, not restrict, the woman in question.)
