Christine Blasey Ford has agreed to testify in an open Senate hearing on Thursday. A few more details need to be ironed out, though I understand that she will speak before Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh, meanwhile, will present his detailed calendar of his leisure activities in the summer of 1982, which strangely do not show that he sexually assaulted anyone.

Oh lord: Wrinkle.

Chances are, it’s this woman, Deborah Ramirez, who is alleging another sexual assault allegation against the Supreme Court nominee, according to Ronan Farrow. According to Ramirez, when she was a freshman at Yale, “Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.” (New Yorker)

Oh wait: Nope. Avenatti represents a third woman.

Also, the GOP is still rotten to the damn core.

Meghan Markle’s “politics are an issue. She is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends.” You don’t say — maybe some of Harry’s friends don’t go down so well with Meghan Markle, either. (Celebitchy)

Will the 16th season of Grey’s Anatomy be its last? Maybe, according to Ellen Pompeo, who is looking for a change. (Dlisted)

Is Better Call Saul now better than Breaking Bad? I think so, and so does Guillermo del Toro. (Uproxx)

I love finding out that awesome people are dear friends of other awesome people, as is the case with the friendship between Meryl Streep and Tracey Ullman. (Vulture)

Robert Englund returning to play Freddy in an episode of The Goldbergs has me far more excited than it probably should. (/Film)

Deadspin had a great piece this weekend on why the right wants Kavanaugh to be confirmed not in spite of the sexual assault allegations, but because of them, which traffics in a lot of the same themes that Emily wrote about earlier this week, but honestly, I think the GOP — and men, in general — want Kavanaugh to be confirmed, or Louis CK to come back, etc., etc., because they are terrified of what might happen to them one day and they’re trying to chip away at #MeToo before it comes for them. But also, this Deadspin piece is great. (Deadspin)


FYI, for those asking about the header photo. We write a lot about politics, but we do not want to pollute our pages with the faces of certain political figures because, let’s be honest, who wants to look at those faces all day? This is our header photo cheat sheet, so far, replacing these political figures with friendlier, lovelier faces. We will likely add more, as needed.

Donald Trump — Kate Beckinsale
Sarah Sanders — Taika Waititi
Alex Jones — Mel C of the Spice Girls
Brett Kavanaugh — Connie Britton
Mike Pence — Julia Louis Dreyfus
