Kavanaugh would cement far-right agenda

By E. J. DionneJuly 15, 2018

Be prepared for a festival of hypocrisy, evasion and misdirection from supporters of the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Begin with the idea that because Kavanaugh is qualified, well-educated, intelligent and likable, senators should fall in line behind him.

Sorry, but Senate Republicans already have demonstrated none of these characteristics matters. If they did, Judge Merrick Garland would be a Supreme Court justice. In blocking Garland, conservatives made clear personal and professional qualities have nothing to do with confirmation battles. They’re raw battles for power.
