For John, BLUF: You knew there was going to be a fight. All that was missing was a name Nothing to see here; just move along.
From PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson, 9 July 2018.
Tne first two paragraphs:
WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) praised as "superb" President Trump's selection of federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, while Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) prepared for a Tuesday morning protest on the steps of the Supreme Court.Seems like an OK candidate. The fact is, like war and pregnancy, the outcome, once the nominee is on the bench, is never guaranteed.
Kavanaugh, a 53-year-old former law clerk for Kennedy, also teaches at Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown. His wife, Ashley Estes, was President George W. Bush's personal secretary. They have two daughters and are active in D.C.'s Catholic community, including volunteering with Catholic Charities and tutoring at Washington Jesuit Academy.
