If I had to do that I'd miss a few events from 7 years ago too, and I don't speak in public near as often as a law professor at a large university.
 
I would as well. But I don't think it was her alone filling out the disclosure at the kitchen table, while backscrolling through her google calendar. There were teams of people working on this (or at least scrub reviewing it before it was submitted). This guy went to archive.org and found the history, so I presume it didn't take him long.   I don't think it's particularly useful either way, but it certainly looks more like "tried to avoid giving the senators anything additional to attack her" vs. "oops, I forgot that one". Given the other stuff she did disclose and her know history those events are not really surprising, I'm surprised they omitted them.

The important question is Why would her confirmation be "glorious"? Supreme Court appointments should be boring AF and reassuring in that. 
 

If they went about their business and it was unemotional - even rational - then it would alienate their reactive, hysterical, vengeful base.
You know, the ones who think there's some benefit to the nation to "own the libs."

(Spoiler: it just means they're looking for an ego boost by feeling like they're bigger and stronger, since they can't compete in any other way)

Republicans are only playing with the rules as inherited from Reid's term.  They didn't change the rules, Harry Reid & his Dem majority did.  Why should Republicans give back what Reid handed them?  

Court packing isn't right either, but the Democrats are threatening it - if they win.  Many Dem voters understand that court packing also isn't right.  Court packing is not necessarily a guaranteed vote getter - Dems are once again playing with fire.

 
what part of right (and wrong for that matter) do you not understand?

why on earth don't the two main parties agree on the need for a majority vote for each new member to the SC?  Like 75%? It would make life so easy. 
 

Hahahahahaha!

Blame Harry Reid.


Can't say he and the Dems weren't warned that his actions would come back to haunt them.
 

Indeed, but it still doesn't make it right, does it?
