Last week’s Judiciary Committee hearings were long and very hard on everyone, especially the two main individuals. We now wait for the results of the FBI investigation.
The whole process was difficult for both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, but only one of the two comported themselves in a dignified manner. Dr. Ford was terrified yet extremely courageous,
but Judge Kavanaugh was angry and, I assume, urged by the president to stand up for himself. Standing up for himself was not what I saw. I saw an entitled man having a meltdown. He yelled at the Democrats on the panel, accusing them of going after him for purely political reasons. When asked by Senator Klobuchar if he had ever passed out because he drank too much, he sarcastically asked her if she had ever passed out from too much alcohol.
Remember, Supreme Court justices are to be impartial and consider only the facts. When Clarence Thomas called his nomination hearing a “high-tech lynching,” he did so calmly and respectfully to the panel, He didn’t throw a fit.
I didn’t see a potential Supreme Court justice testifying last week, I saw a spoiled, entitled man lashing out.
