Is it? Have a reference? Genuine curiosity.....

I've been looking up "Devil's Triangle Drinking Game", and have found no hits save for recent mentions regarding the hearing. That's odd.

That's on Trump. Too stupid to read the writing on the proverbial DC wall. Amateur.

What is the writing? Do explain.

"Don't nominate someone or we will destroy their life."

Is that it?

Crimes committed by Muslims will be proof of a pan-Islamic plot and Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand, crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of mentally ill lone wolves who do not represent their professed belief system at all.
The probability of someone secretly participating in homosexual acts is directly proportional to the frequency and loudness of their publicly professed disapproval and/or disgust for homosexuality.
If Donald Trump accuses an individual of malfeasance without evidence, it is almost a certainty either he or someone associated with him has in fact committed that very same malfeasance to a greater degree.

I always mean what I say. I will never put any fellow nations on ignore for any personal or political reasons. I hate to see any fellow nations banned from NS forever, because we all love NS. I hate the culture we have on NS of reporting our fellow nations for anything we cant think of to hurt our fellow nations. I will only report any nation I think might have broken an NS rule of decency against me. But even then, I have looked the other way many times, and I will look the other way many times. But If I think they went too far, I have no choice. I might report on the behalf of a person I think I owe a favor too. I will never report a fellow nation over an RP, unless they bait, flame and troll. I count 748 characters or so including spaces.

No, but it was the Democrats who decided it's okay to cook up bullshit claims with absolutely no evidence to destroy nominees you don't like.

At this point I almost hope that Trump pulls Kavanaugh and puts Barrett in just to spite the dumbasses and put a real extremist on the court.

Sure glad Brett asked Senator Klobuchar if she had a drinking problem. Sounds like he doesn't listened to himself and how absurd he actually sounds.

How many court cases were there about Obamas birth certificate? How much did the current Republican president have to say about that issue?

Given the extreme lack of evidence, her own issues with the memory and how every named witness has said they have no recollection of the incident I think she at the very least is mistaken.
