Who needs to prove or disprove a man’s innocence if you can find any way to cast him in a bad light, right?
It’s hard not to characterize the Democrat’s attitude towards Brett Kavanaugh in this way now, considering they vowed to fight him tooth and nail before even knowing his name.
As soon as allegations broke against Kavanaugh at the last minute before his confirmation was set to be voted on it was hard to believe the timing wasn’t carefully plotted out.
Sen. Cory Booker, who was making a fool of himself on the Senate floor before we ever heard of Dr. Christine Ford with his “I am Spartacus moment”, has now fully admitted it doesn’t matter whether or not Kavanaugh is innocent or guilty of the claims hurled against him, he shouldn’t serve on SCOTUS anyway, you know, because.
Here are his full comments:
My hope is beyond the vicious partisan rancor that is going on, beyond the accusations, we don’t lose sight of what this moral moment is about in this country, and ultimately ask ourselves the question: Is this the right person to sit on the highest court in the land for a lifetime appointment — when their credibility has been challenged by intimates, people that knew the candidate well as a classmate, when his temperament has been revealed in an emotional moment where he used language that frankly shocked a lot of us? And then ultimately, not whether he’s innocent or guilty, this is not a trial, but ultimately have enough questions been raised that we should not move on to another candidate in that long list put together by the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society? Move on to another candidate because ultimately the Supreme Court is not an entitlement. Just because you went to Yale or were president of your class doesn’t entitle you to the Supreme Court. This is a sacred institution, and the people who should be on it — whether you agree with their political or judicial philosophy at all — the people who are on the Supreme Court should preserve the integrity of the court and be beyond the reproach of these difficult partisan times.
This faux moral outrage makes Booker look like the cat who (thinks) he got the canary, in all honesty.
He couldn’t be happier to have some reason to pretend to be appalled by Kavanaugh’s character, but he has little ground to stand on when he was previously grasping at straws to impugn Kavanaugh’s character.
Kavanaugh has defended himself against allegations that have been highly publicized, dramatized, and used against him by the Democrats entirely for political reasons.
The way he has defended himself says little compared to the way he has loyally served his country and stood by his family and actively participated in his community up until this point.
Kavanaugh is a victim of the most hateful political climate in recent memory, and, as Lindsey Graham said during last week’s hearing, he has nothing to apologize for.
