It would have been easier to keep an open mind had I not heard her speak. From my perspective, she was faux-melancholic, sing-songy, glib and a little too gleeful for my heightened sensibilities. To me, Ford sounded...off-putting. No, wrong word. It was more than off-putting. Her entire testimony reminded me of nails on a chalkboard. The whole thing was awful. She was right to want to stay home because as a witness, she sucked.
Kavanaugh is a learned and - by all accounts - decent man of preeminent legal qualification who was rightly nominated by President Trump for a position on the Supreme Court. By any rational standard, he ought to be confirmed. Instead, he is being destroyed by the Democrat's leviathan of hypocrisy and State sponsored terror because he's not impassioned enough about baby killing to meet the Left's litmus test for holocaustic enlightenment.
Brett Kavanaugh is the least objectionable right-of-center candidate that Democrats could be asked to stomach - withstanding an off-the-rails nomination of Michael Moore in his stead. Yet here they are objecting to Kavanaugh using the most extreme and convoluted means possible. So what does that mean for conservative judges and conservatism as a whole?
