Thursday’s hearing on the sexual assault charges against Brett Kavanaugh promises to be a circus. If the past few weeks are prologue, Democratic senators will demagogue in bad faith, Republican senators will embarrass themselves, and most of the press won’t even try to assess the veracity of what is said, opting instead for score-keeping and judging the “optics.”
We know how Judiciary Committee Democrats will vote. They are all completely faithful to the abortion lobby and have never considered voting for Kavanaugh.
Some Republicans on and off the committee have tipped their hands, suggesting they’ll be voting for Kavanaugh no matter what they hear. That’s a moral error. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh are serious and at least deserve to be weighed.
