Yes, Kavanaugh's views and decisions are ultra-conservative. They will play a major role in changing the course of our country for decades to come.
But that's not the reason he should have been denied.
It's not what he believes that should disqualify him, but rather who he is.
When first nominated, Kavanaugh downplayed his leanings and highlighted his "collegiality with left-leaning judges" (WaPo, 7/10/18).
He repeatedly espouses his supposed belief that the Supreme Court should be non-partisan ("The Supreme Court must never be viewed as a partisan institution," Kavanaugh hearing transcript). And he's right, cases should be decided based on the fluidity and interpretation of Constitutional law. Yet during his recent hearing, Kavanaugh's true belief reared its partisan head when he, actually, ranted that the assault allegations against him were a political hit, that included "revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups."
And that's who he is. Someone who can't be trusted.
And his numerous misleading statements regarding his drinking and activities ("boofing" is flatulence, there's no way he ever could have forgotten anything while drunk, in Maryland the drinking age was 18 so seniors could drink--despite the FACT he was only 17 when Maryland changed the age to 21), also show who he is.
A quote from the Bible of Kavanaugh's religion (Luke 16:10) says, "he who is false in small things, is false in great."
Yes, that's who he is.
And the defensiveness and outright belligerence towards those asking him questions--asking Senators what they drank or, unbelievably, if they had ever blacked out from drinking--has nothing to do with what he believes.
It shows who he is.
And now who he is is someone soon to sit on the highest court in the land, a court that should light the way of truth and fairness for our citizenry.
Soon to include Brett Kavanaugh.
And who he is should scare everyone.
