Kavanaugh: What Have We Learned?

So, Brett Kavanaugh is our next Supreme Court justice. It's all over now. What have we learned from the events of the past month?

Speaking only for myself, this debacle has done nothing to change my mind about our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media and the Democratic Party. (And yes, I realize those two things are the same thing.) Here are just a few of my biases that have been confirmed by this whole mess. If you don't know, now ya know:

1. Most of the media is actively working for the Democrats.

If I had any doubt about this, it was completely erased by the events of the past month. The only way any of it makes sense is if the press is eagerly doing the will of the Democrats.

Are the Dems accusing a Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, and even gang rape? Well then, the press will proceed under that assumption. They already know the accused is guilty, no matter how insane the accusation, so they'll dig up facts to match the theory. And if they can't find facts? Any facts at all? Well then, they'll just weave together rumor and conjecture until they hit their word count.

They're team players, and if you don't like their outright dishonesty, that's what you get for refusing to join them. They're better than us, which is why they're so baffled that we don't trust them.

2. The Democrats have no ideas, no principles, just tactics.

If you were under the misapprehension that the Dems were acting on principle, they were more than happy to shatter that illusion. Over and over, at every turn, they insisted that their treatment of Brett Kavanaugh was no different than what those evil Republicans did to Merrick Garland.

Even if you agree with that — and in order to make the comparison, you would have to quote a single Republican who ever accused Garland of organizing gang rapes — it's pretty stupid to admit that you're trying to destroy an innocent man's life for nothing more than revenge. The Dems wanted payback, and they didn't care how they got it. They didn't stop for one second to consider the ramifications of what they were doing. They were unmoored by principle and heedless of scruple. Attack, attack, attack.

3. Dems are angry, vindictive, and violent.

Republicans are getting death threats, and now they're even getting ricin in the mail. They're being doxed. Dems are screaming at them in elevators and hounding them whenever they go out in public.

All these intimidation tactics are happening barely a year after a Bernie Bro tried to assassinate Republicans at baseball practice and almost murdered Steve Scalise.
