Or not... you be the judge --

You know, I'm starting to wonder if Brett Kavanaugh was playing it straight when he talked about what an impartial, disinterested Supreme Court justice he's going to be. I mean, what the hell is going on here? From The Washington Examiner (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/victory-lap-trump-to-swear-in-kavanaugh-in-prime-time-ceremony):


The ceremony follows perhaps the most contentious confirmation battle for a Supreme Court nominee in history and the administration is using Monday evening to show voters they can make good on its promises. In front of a room full of reporters, television cameras and Republican lawmakers at 7:00 p.m. Monday, the president will stand next to Kavanaugh and present him to the nation as one of the crowning achievements of his first two years in office.



In other words, a sitting Supreme Court justice-Kavanaugh already was sworn in on Saturday by the person who was supposed to do it, Chief Justice John Roberts-is going to participate willingly in a meaningless masquerade of a partisan campaign event. (We'll leave how disgusting it is that anyone besides Fox is going to televise this puppet show for another time.)

Worse, it is a meaningless masquerade of a partisan campaign event that implies that a Supreme Court justice must be "sworn in" by the head of the Executive Branch, which, at the moment, is headed by someone as ill-suited to that office as Kavanaugh is to his.

If Kavanaugh was as dedicated to a non-partisan, independent judiciary as he claims to be, he'd have told the president*, politely, how completely unseemly this spectacle is. I'm telling you, I'm starting to wonder.

Has this been done in the past by any other POTUS? In any event, why would the Chief Justice put up with such a stunt?

I just listened to Kav's speech. It was a canned speech, nothing special. But Trump's introduction was a direct shotgun blast to the Democrats. The whole thing was a shameless partisan event.

I know you are being sarcastic, but that's a very tough pill to swallow.

This just in...

BK, with his superb qualifications, has hit the ground running, and expects to work thru his first case as an associate justice as quick as can be --
