Nothing to See Here!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, from left, Brett Kavanaugh, U.S. Supreme Court associate justice nominee for U.S. President Donald Trump, and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, stand during a meeting at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, July 10, 2018. Senate Republicans are pledging a swift confirmation process that would put Kavanaugh on the bench before the new term opens Oct. 1, and there is little Democrats can do to stop them.

Needless to say, I have no idea about whether the allegations being made against Brett Kavanaugh are true. They simply deserve to be taken seriously. As Republicans are implicitly conceding:

Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also released a letter Friday morning from 65 women who said they supported Kavanaugh.

Really, what Supreme Court nominee doesn’t have a list of 65 random women they didn’t sexually assault while attending an all-boys high school lined up?

Still, I’m pretty terrified that these accusations will mean that if confirmed Kavanaugh will be the completely reliable party-line vote he also would have been had he been confirmed by a voice vote after a pro forma hearing.
