Today’s decision by Susan Collins and Joe Manchin to vote in favor of the Brett Kavanaugh nomination demonstrates why people such as my adult children check out of politics. It is very hard to answer my youngest son, now 25, who argues that the entire system is so corrupt that it is not worth his time and energy to participate.
Mr. Kavanaugh himself showed his extreme partisanship with his histrionics last week.
That, in combination with the widespread evidence of his perjury and the credible accusations of sex assaults by multiple women, should have been more than enough to torpedo this nomination. The FBI “investigation” is nothing but a big smear of lipstuck spread all over this pig.
With “friends” like Mr. Manchin, who needs enemies?
I say “a pox on all their houses”.
Mark my words — this Supreme Court will return America to the dark ages. We can expect abortion and birth control to be denied to women. We can expect civil rights legislation to be declared unconstitutional. We can expect the war crimes against immigrants to continue as more and more are gathered into concentration camps.
Things are going to get MUCH worse before they get any better.
