Because God, apparently, loves irony. Why God Is Laughing at Brett Kavanaugh - Politico.
Quote:
Fairness is rooted in the idea of principles, precedent, proportionality. Few people in American life witnessed at closer range than Kavanaugh the modern reality that when things really matter—in the way that the balance of the Supreme Court matters—all these fine notions matter less than the cold, hard exercise of power.

So here was Kavaunagh—who spent his early thirties as a Ken Starr warrior pursuing Bill Clinton for the political and legal implications of his most intimate moral failings—now in his early fifties facing a political crisis over disturbingly vivid, passionately contested, decades-old allegations about Kavanaugh’s own possible moral failings.

The difference of course, being that Clinton's indiscretion was with a consenting adult and involved no attempted rape, statutory or otherwise. Nobody was forced to do anything, and nobody feared for their life. A big part of Clinton's legal trouble was because he thought it ungentlemanly to kiss and tell.

What is it with Republicans and their love for rapists and sexual harassers? Kinda seems like we all should have listened to Anita Hill.

Once again (is it too much to hope, for the last time) a panel of old white men is going to sweep the moral failings of one of their own under the rug for unseemly political expediency. The contrast is so stark.

If it weren't for his sanctimony, I could see a path to addressing an error of youth (I'm certain most of us have some boorish idiocy of our youth we'd as soon forget), but characters such as Kavanaugh are not much for self-reflection. So bad behavior is compounded by public collusion in covering for it.

The Kavaunagh fiasco, just weeks before the midterms, is another nail in the coffin for Republicans. They can't win either way: Confirmed or not.

Confirmed, they lose a lot of female voters who are getting sick and tired of their support for rapists and child molesters. Not confirmed, they probably lose the Supreme Court seat, and some of their Evangelical base.

Ya know what? It just occurred to me, Clarence Thomas isn't going to be there all that much longer. If we do our duty and get one or both houses in Congress, ain't no way he's being replaced by a Clarence Clone. The Rethugs are NOT going to hold the SCOTUS "for a lifetime".
