What better way to confirm a new U.S. Supreme Court justice who was involved in nearly every single partisan touchstone over the last twenty years than to wrap him in warm and fuzzy impartiality? Never mind Brett Kavanaugh’s involvement in everything from indefinite detention to Bush v. Gore, he coaches his kids’ basketball team!
I always knew that kindly ex-president who graciously offered Michelle Obama some candy (after starting an illegal war that killed hundreds of thousands) would come back to bite us in the ass. But Kavanaugh is “pro-law,” whatever that means.
As of now the Democrats don’t have the numbers to stop the confirmation, but that might change if it turns out Kavanaugh lied in his 2006 confirmation hearing. There may be more lurking in those over 100,000 pages of documents that have been hidden due to “executive privilege.” Which executive, nobody knows.
