Ann Althouse is seeing a trend:

.The linked article doesn’t come out and make this argument, but it caused me to see it: Kavanaugh should be rejected because the confirmation experienced has ruined his mind. He’s damaged now and can no longer think in the properly judicial way that was once within his capacity..

I have to say I’ve started seeing some of this nonsense too, and I think it should be noted right off the bat that this is a tacit admission that the mission of the Democrats to kill off Kavanaugh’s chances for the Supreme Court has failed.

If I thought for a Split Second that rather perverse argument was on the level, I might expect the results to be that Democrats won’t put originalists through this ringer every time. But the history of the last 30-plus years speaks for itself. You know we’re going to go through this again, as soon as Ruth Bader Ginsburg kicks… It’s the only game they’ve got. It’s who they are.

  1. As much as Senator Feinstein et al tried, Judge Kavanagh’s experience was not as bad as John McCain stay at the Hanoi Hilton.  Moreover, the previous victim Associate Justice Clarence Thomas survived to become the shining star of the Supreme Court.

    In addition, to surrender to the ‘rats’ hissy fit would give the ‘rats veto power over any nominee to the right of Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

  2. Don’t be so certain Ginsburg is next to fall.
    One of OBummer’s is a brittle Diabetic who makes Ginsburg look like Ms Optimal Health. 

    David, have you found anyone yet who is willing to go on record about Admiral McCain’s baby boy, Reverse Ace, vacationing in Hanoi?  Reverse Ace certainly is no Bill Stockdale, in fact he isn’t qualified to be pissed on by Stockdale.

  3. There are a wide range of opinions available on the ‘net as to the quality, or lack thereof, of McCain’s service while at the Hilton.  The picture is not clear to me.  I do note that McCain was adamant that torture does not work.  I suspect, that McCain was tortured and it did work.  Do a search on songbird McCain.  Draw your own inferences.

  4. David as you know full well, I am suspicious of McCain’s “service” at the Hanoi Hilton as well. Particularly since his record was hidden from public view as soon as McCain became a senator and thereby had the ability to do so. I share your suspicions that torture did work on McCain all too well. Certainly it work better on him then would have looked good on his political resume.

    Richard Nixon’s biggest crime did not involve Watergate, it was instead pardoning John McCain.
