Sanctimony at its highest level

I have been watching the opening of the Kavanaugh hearings. It is a bizarre exercise in which every bit of what the Democrats are doing is a fishing exercise to hope that something might yet come up that might, if the right slant is put on the issue, be made to discredit the nominee. There are millions of pages of text that the Dems are hoping to comb through to find something, just anything at all will do. And now, even as I watch, there are protestors getting up, screaming and then being led out. As Drudge has it:

CHAOS AT KAVANAUGH

Kavanaugh has given 370 decisions in his time and countless speeches. They are available already and have no doubt been gone through with a fine tooth comb but with nothing that has come up so far. But there is always some freak chance something might come up. That is what all of the histrionics are about.

For a bit of balance, you might turn to this as a reminder not just that there does remain sanity, but also how much remains at stake: President Trump Evansville Indiana Rally Drew Largest Crowd Ever to Ford Center….

THE MORNING AFTER: Didn’t make it through the night so missed this endorsement by Senator Ted Cruz. The first point is obvious. Cruz lays out why Brett Kavanaugh ought to be elevated to the Supreme Court. There are five million documents they already have. But he goes into the detail about what Kavanaugh’s role as “staff secretary” for President George HW Bush. These are papers he sorted through and passed along, but did not write. All that is made clear below.

But he goes into the detail about what Kavanaugh’s role as “staff secretary” for President George HW Bush. These are papers he sorted through and passed along, but did not write. There is nothing relevant to the Senate hearing in any way. These papers provide absolutely no insight into anything that the Judge believes about anything. All that is made clear below.

The second issue is that Cruz who had been on the other end of Donald Trump’s ferocious rhetoric during the nominating process is in every way supportive to the fullest extent of now President Donald Trump. The contrast with the recently departed Senator McCain is clear.
