The compelling case against Kavanaugh

Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee with different purposes — she to offer an account of violent behavior that would disqualify him from the Supreme Court and he to counter her allegations and prove himself suitable for the post. But it was the nominee who offered the most irrefutable evidence of his unfitness.

Kavanaugh was a spectacle in belligerence and self-pity, vilifying Democrats for having the utter gall to take seriously the woman who says he attacked her at a gathering when they were in high school.

He furiously condemned the supposed injustice visited upon him, raging through his tears at a process he called “a calculated and orchestrated political hit” and “a national disgrace.” He even blamed the Clintons.

The studious judge and mild suburban dad Americans saw before was replaced by a bitter partisan warrior with a can of gasoline and a butane lighter, scorching the earth as he went.
