Digby (Heather Parton) (@digby56) and Judy Gold (@JewdyGold) join us.

On today’s show: Brett Kavanaugh may have perjured himself four times in 2008 confirmation hearings. Trump tries and fails twice to say the word “anonymous.”

The $600k re-election fund Susan Collins will get if she votes against Kavanaugh. Digby’s take on the anonymous NYT op-ed. Author of stolen memos calls for Kavanaugh’s impeachment.

Judy Gold (@JewdyGold) joins us for her semi-regular rage fest. Judy gives props to Obama, negative shout outs to Lindsey Graham. But Obama framed m4a as a “new idea,” isn’t that kind of wack? Judy on having shows canceled over her politics and certain jokes she makes. Is Trump a regular Republican? A new Jimmy Reefercake song is played.
