Kavanaugh has proven his partisanship since HE was the lead legal aide to Ken Starr in what truly was a witch hunt and WROTE THE MAIN DRAFT of the final report. He sure did not seem to have any problem with investigating a DEMOCRATIC president. He was also on the legal team that went to Florida to quash any recount effort that might jeopardize his guy’s theft of the presidency.
But then when Bush gets in office, and then he works as a legal aide to Bush in the White House, and then Bush nominates him to the D.C. federal court, now all of a sudden a Bush or a Trump is in the White House and suddenly a REPUBLICAN president is immune from any questioning or investigations like what he did to Clinton.
Further, during his confirmation hearing to his present seat, he was asked about his involvement in the ILLEGAL and immoral Bush torture policies, and Kavanaugh, under oath, said he did not have any involvement in that and knew nothing about it. Later memos were uncovered that proved that he not only DID know about it, he was smack in the middle of discussions about it — Kavanaugh had LIED UNDER OATH.
The fact that the current Republicans on the committee don’t dismiss his nomination out of hand proves utter contempt for judicial integrity, for which they have relinquished any moral authority on the subject of perjury.
Any single, functioning brain cell should do the job with plenty of energy to spare!
Kavanaugh did say he regretted doing that to a sitting president and did not want to do it again. It did seem he was for giving the position of president as sacrosanct regardless of the occupant.
Yep, that’s about right after watching the circus, run by the clown with the gavel.
And he kisses his daughters with the same lips he kisses Donnie’s fanny.
Are all Republicans soulless?
He wants to be a part of the new regime. Elections are for losers.
Kavanaugh said the 9/11 incident changed his opinion on investigating a seated president. Can you imagine how Trump would have reacted to 9/11?
I didn’t realize Politicians r Us was stocking supreme court nominees. This must be the first one bought.
How about letting us READ all that paper you suddenly released?
Rob, I love the face of Natasa Fatale behind Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh forgot his MAGA hat.
Gee, that’$ hard to $ay what could give ANYONE that impre$$ion…

What makes us think you wouldn’t be “fair and independent”? The fact that you’re being fast-tracked by the same people who wouldn’t even give Merrick Garland a hearing for a year.
I just sent the following to my 2 US Senators from Wisconsin, Ron Johnson® and Tammy Baldwin (D):
Recommended reading before you vote on Brett Kavanaugh for a lifetime appointment to the US Supreme Court:
(1) Advise and Consent, a novel by Allen Drury that describes a Senator who delves deeply into the character of a nominee for a high federal position before voting against his confirmation; it won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1960.
(2) Profiles in Courage, biographical sketches by then-Sen. John F. Kennedy about his predecessors in the Senate who put patriotism ahead of partisanship, popular passions, or their personal political careers; it won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 1957.
Only to Sen. Johnson:
If you yourself aspire to be in the next edition of Profiles in Courage, I suggest that you have an opportunity before you by voting against Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. I strongly recommend that, for the good of the country, and to preserve the role of the Legislative Branch in the separation of powers, you eschew letting the current occupant of the White House select his own jury.
Only to Sen. Baldwin:
I strongly recommend that, for the good of the country, and to preserve the role of the Legislative Branch in the separation of powers, you eschew letting the current occupant of the White House select his own jury. Further, since Judge Kavanaugh poses a significant threat to women’s health in the country, a subject I know is near and dear to your heart, I urge you to prevail upon your fellow female Senators — especially the Republicans — to stand up for your half of the American populace.
What makes anyone think he would be a fair and independent supreme court justice? Is there anyone who has a rational argument as to why this guy should be confirmed other than he has found 51 (not 60) Russian sympathetic people to say he should?
So I wonder what’ll come across his desk first- the dismantling of Roe v. Wade, or an emergency order from Trump outlawing protests? (With special dispensation for protests he likes, of course.)
He would be fair by protecting the sitting president. But not to the law or any aspects of separation of powers and what amounts to collusion with the judiciary.
Love how you have Morticia at the extreme right. Or is that Natasha (of Boris and…)?
Well, you wouldn’t want a supreme court that was always making controversial decisions and affronting persons and institutions whose worthiness and importance is proved by how much money and property they have.
Excellent rendering! It could not be more clear.
