KavanaUGH (self.politics)
submitted by boyfromnyc 315 days ago

When KavanaUGH was nominated, I realized he and I had different political stripes,
but I believed him to be a qualified jurist.
Maybe that is still the case.
However as the hearings proceeded and the allegations and denials unfolded on a daily basis,
confusion took centerstage.

Amidst all the he /said she said a thorough investigation seemed warranted.
We are not privy to the FBI report, but it appears the FBI could take a few lessons from the team at
SVU in the name of thoroughness.

I listened to Susan Collins' justification for her vote.
It seems she limited her thinking/ analysis solely to the FBI report.
If that is the case, she had no choice to vote the way she did.

However, shouldn't she have sought more information?

Also, shouldn't she have considered KavanaUGH's emotional fitness for the Supreme Court.

Would anyone who has interviewed and hired people have given him a job.

The decision to be made called for more than limited thinking.
It called for judgement about fitness, not about politics or even judicial fitness.

Sorry but after watching the "hearing", the perjury, the stolen emails in the Clinton case, etc. I can't really see how anyone could think K is an acceptable choice to a lifetime appointment to the SC.

If you look at his record he's basically going to take down R vs W, continue to let dark money into elections, allow gerrymandering, and cover Trump's ass but doing away with double jeopardy laws (basically states can't prosecute crimes if it's tried at the federal level - a reversal of a law which has been around since basically forever).

K is a partisan hack.
