Amy McGrath steps in it BIG TIME and enrages the left, then flip flops to quell the furor!

Mitch McConnell’s new challenger is having a rough go of it today. Here’s what happened:

THE HILL – Amy McGrath, who announced this week she will challenge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in 2020, says in a new interview that she would have likely voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“I was very concerned about Judge Kavanaugh, what I felt like were the far-right stances that he had. However, there was nothing in his record that I think would disqualify him in any way,” McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot, told the Louisville Courier-Journal.

“And the fact is when you have the president and the Senate, this is our system, and so I don’t think there was anything that would have disqualified him in my mind,” she said, adding when pressed on how she would have voted: “yeah, I probably would have voted for him.”

Well this unleashed a bevy of hate from the left, who couldn’t believe she said this about Kavanaugh:



That’s just a smidgen. You should the @ replies she’s getting inundated with. It’s more than I can count.

So about two hours ago from the time of this post McGrath decided to address her critics and flip flop on the issue:

Now she says she’d vote NO on Kavanaugh after the Twitter mob ‘educated’ her. LOL! But apparently that wasn’t enough so she tweeted this one out less than an hour ago:

If this was really true she would have owned up to the mistake she made comparing Trump to 9/11.

  1. I’m thinking some republican mole got into her camp and suggested to her that it would go over really well with the base if she came out and said she would have voted for kavanaugh, knowing that she’s a bit dense perhaps? lol

      1. Disqus still stores downvotes, it just doesn’t display them any more. I’ve heard tell of a browser plugin that overrides that and displays them anyways but haven’t bothered investigating that any further.

  2. pretty soon, when asked questions by reporters, dems will have to say “I don’t know just yet, lemme check with the rage mob, and see what the correct answer will be, and I’ll get back to you on that”

          1. Thankfully we lowly “active” members will not have to suffer the fall from grace. At least not yet. 😉

      1. You were going to be BDOC (Big Doc On Campus)
        Yes I said Big Doc
        😀

    1. You know what they say? If you ain’t cheating you ain’t trying. I’m self appointed “Noble”.

  3. “But upon further reflection, and the torches and pitchforks on Twitter, I have decided to bow before the mob.”

    1. These days, how do you tell? I’m sure glad that I could cut my hair and throw away those raggedy bell bottoms.

    2. I agree/. When I saw the photo of her I mistakenly thought it was a man. Oh, well………..my bad.

  4. When I first saw her pick, I thought to myself, is this Crowder doing a bit or has Trudeau finally transitioned.

  5. Yes, this woman has the spine of a jellyfish. She’s clearly afraid of people saying things online. Oh noes Amy!

    Also, thank you for bringing back Disqus. Blocking the annoying people makes my life measurably better.

  6. The real question people should be asking — Why is Steven Crowder running for Kentucky’s Senate seat?

  7. That’s a woman?
    I thought it was lil Justin Trudope from Canada wearing earrings. No offence meant. Well maybe a little.

  8. Well, it goes to show the typical politician is SPINELESS… McConnell, the RINO, should have an easy reelection.

  9. Disqus is ok, but The problem with disqus was things kept getting ‘flagged as spam’ when they weren’t- especially if you pasted things like stats, or short excerpts or something

  10. She or he (still not sure) should close up shop, she is done. That’s one the fastest collapses of a campaign.

    1. “Noble Lumpkin, this here’s the Illustrious Potentate. I said, the Illustrious Potentate. I said, the Illustrious– Coy, dad blam it, this here’s Bubba.” — Ray Stevens, Shriner’s Convention

      1. Amen Doc. You are noble too.
        It’s great not to have to type in @ and your name.
        😀

  11. I’m wondering how you guys still feel about our new comment system. I don’t want t write a whole post about it, but just let me know if you still love it or are tired of it and want disqus back.

    💡 💡 💡

    1. For the current system:
      + It’s smooth and snappy. I think that it looks “cleaner” than Disqus.
      + The text editing pane is *much* nicer than Disqus’, which is so buggy and painful to use that I often used to write my comments in a text editor and then paste them into Disqus to avoid all the bugs.
      + I kind of like the fact that users have to create a separate login to join conversations. It keeps out some riffraff.
      – I don’t like having to go to my email to see who has responded to my comments. I like the way that Disqus gives you that little red ball with the number in it to notify you of activity.
      – I’d imagine that not having Disqus reduces your web traffic.
      – I think we’ve been revisited in the comments area by people you formerly banned.
      – I don’t like not having a block feature for a couple of the trolls.
      – Disqus was much easier to use if you wanted to view your own comment history.

      Personally, I’m fine with whatever you decide to do. I see good and band in both systems and nothing is a killer feature or a show stopper.

      1. You’re right, scrolling up and down a long thread to see replies is a big PITA.

    2. Not a fan. I detect we’ve lost some prolific commenters when we ditched Disqus which is a shame and the vast majority of sites use it as their commenting system. For whatever reasons Disqus was bugging out before, I’m sure it’s been resolved or can be fixed without turning to a different commenting system. I say bring it back.

    3. Disqus had it’s problems, no doubt but it’s near universal. And you’ve definitely lost a lot of commenters. Traffic too, I’m sure. There are things I like and dislike about both but if I had to pick, it’d be Disqus.

    4. I do not like the new system. Honestly, I miss disqus on here. I don’t comment much anymore since the new system was adopted.

    5. I’ve been cheating and going to other websites to get my Disqus fix in. Please make me an honest man again and bring back Disqus. It’s just been plain down right sad over here since you dropped Disqus. The give and take is just not what it use to be.

        1. I know, right? In the end whichever commenting section is more financially beneficial for you. I just want this site to grow and continue to flourish. It is honestly my favorite site.

    6. @therightscoop After all my complaining when we first switched, I actually adjusted fairly quickly and now have practically no problems with it.

      It usually keeps me logged in, although, coincidentally enough, it did log me out this morning. That hasn’t happened in a very long time.

      I think it’s a plus that the system is a little onerous to join because it discourages drive-by trolls.

      Negatives? This is nitpicking but you asked:

      1. For some reason, I have to check both my regular AND my junk mail folders for replies. It’s very random. But I’ve adapted.

      2. The emojis are cute, but I wish I could use my own. I have so many more to choose from. 🙁 Also, once you go back to edit, you can’t access them.

      Hey, I told you it was nitpicky!

      So, on balance, my vote is to stick with what we’ve got now.

      Oh and btw, how come I still can’t see what the comment status, mine or anyone else’s? Is that an iPad thing? No biggie. 🙂

      And thanks for asking! :thumbsup:

    7. I use the new one here and Disqus on another site when I go there. I’m ok with either.

    8. Stay with this system. It fine. Changing systems is so annoying. I finally figure out how to use this format and now there is a possibility of going back to disqus? I vote no.

    9. There’s more than just Disqus and WordPress. Honestly not a big fan of either. I would check out “Parler” which is the Conservative alternative and Epoch Times uses it. Finally, if you have enough space/bandwidth, you can host your own from the many plugins out there.

  12. Wow. Talk about having no conviction! The Mob has spoken and she folded like a cheap suit. Pathetic!

        1. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Commandant march in the “Gay Marine Pride Parade.”

            1. So good to see you or read you too 🙂 I’ve missed being able to keep in touch, take care !

        1. I’ll miss being a Distinguished Member (-: but otherwise yeah glad we’re back to Disqus.

  15. Wow. Talk about having no conviction! The Mob has spoken and she folded like a cheap suit. Pathetic!

  16. Wow, I thought she handled herself well in that interview yesterday with Jake Crapper. She seemed competent for a Democrat but then she blew it up the next day. She did herself well yesterday, not that I’d ever vote for her, not in the least, and I thought, damn, she could get some crossovers and beat McConnell. Not now.

    Not now. Not with that HUGE show of weakness. She sounds pathetic in those tweets.

    She doesn’t deserve to represent Kentucky and it’s kind of embarrassing that somone this scared was in the military, of all things. Not a good look.

  17. This women is all over the map, so you know she’s a habitual liar. She has to play a conservative on important issues to win in Kentucky (e.g. the wall), but tell the Democrat base she’s the most far left person in the state behind closed doors in order to obtain her marxist credentials.

    1. All democrats are now driven by the mob and NOT by the rule of law. They are lost and will loose.

  18. Under such typically thoughtful, persuasive dissent from the leftist twitter buffoonerati, it’s no surprise to me why she changed her tune.
