The confirmation of #BrettKavanaugh has managed to confirm more than just a man, for many, its confirmed our worst fears.
And it has also confirmed that Donald Trump has a lot more power than we imagined.
She chose to set fire to her entire legacy in one vote rather than do the thing that would have secured it.
Think about that.
#Kavanaugh has indicated, well, actually affirmed, that he has no intention of recusing himself from any of the case types that most legal scholars have agreed he should.
#BrettKavanaugh committed perjury. He did it openly and without blinking.
But what's a little, or in this case, a lot of perjury among such unamiable straight white dudes?
It's nothing I tell you.
Whatever it is, I'm sure it's not going to be pleasant.
Not going to be pleasant is, here, a terrible euphemism.
Impartiality is a thing, but it's certainly not Kavanaugh's thing.
These are his cohorts. This is his crowd.
Not exactly a group of wallflowers with no agenda.
#BrettKavanaugh's own writings clearly undermine the substance of his op-ed from first word to last.
But short of impeachment we are likely stuck with this man until nature takes its course, or his liver.
It is going to hurt. Often. Too often.
Too few of us are too little involved in the actual democracy part of our Democracy.
Until that changes things lindse this will keep happening.
See our team keeps showing up a few players down.
