Kavanaugh – An Independent View

On Friday the Senate Democrats won a small battle over the Senate Republicans when they convinced Republican Jeff Flake to announce that he wanted a week delay and to further investigate Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh. I also heard that Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins went along with Flake’s demand. The Republicans need their votes.

Anyone who watches politics knew the fight over Trump’s nomination was coming.

Over the years we’ve had the Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas nomination process that turned nasty. Recently the Merrick Garland nomination was shut off by the majority Republicans, which was called a cheap tactic on one side and a great move on the other side. Others being nominated to the highest court could have turned nasty, too, if maybe they kept a calendar and drank some beer in high school. (I did one of those)

What goes around comes around. If the sides were flipped you can be sure the Republicans would try to win at all costs.

This “winning” turns my stomach and it should turn yours. It does give me something to write about.

Today we are concentrating on a prep school guy who may have assaulted a high school girl at some place she can’t remember, on a date she can’t remember, and she does not remember how she arrived at the unknown location of the alleged assault or how she left that unknown location.

We don’t have to believe her, but many do.

We don’t have to believe him, but many do.
