REARDON: Brett Kavanaugh & The Problem For Democrats

Let’s get this over with.

The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process is now in it’s 88th day -- well over the average time frame for a Supreme Court Justice to be put on the Court. But every single day the goal posts are moved by the Democrats.

Let’s go over the timeline:

-Kavanaugh is too conservative and he’ll overturn Roe V Wade!

-Kavanaugh was hand picked by a bunch of wacky right wing groups like the Federalist Society! (Ignoring the fact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an attorney for the ACLU)

-Kavanaugh is an attempted rapist!

-Kavanaugh is an actual rapist!

-Kavanaugh would have murdered that poor girl when she was 15!

-Kavanagh is a gang rapist and an out of control drunk!

-Kavanaugh is an out of control drunk who tried to drug girls at parties before he gang raped them.

-Kavanaugh shouldn’t like beer so much!

-Kavanaugh doesn’t have the right judicial temperament to sit on the bench!

-Kavanaugh is too much of a partisan and we can’t have that on the Supreme Court! (Ignoring what one of the other clearly partisan justices RBG has said in public about President Trump.

But here’s the problem for Democrats. None of it has seemed to work. And if you think that a majority of the country including women are on your side you're delusional. Politico did a story about one poll this week—49% of voters say he was a victim while 45% of voters disagree. Wait a second—Sen. Chuckie Schumer told me this week that an OVERWHELMING number of Americans were against Judge Kavanaugh.

Here’s what I’m really looking forward to in the aftermath of his confirmation. The lunatics on the left who have been going nuts for months and weeks will embarrass themselves even further and might even resort to violence. I’m certainly not supporting the latter—but I promise you one thing IF that is the response how will the electorate respond to that behavior. 

Here’s a hint: It won’t favor the Democrats in the November election.
