Re: Brett Kavanaugh - Interest & Discussion

Probably didn't want to add another avenue for removing a judge from the bench other than the constitutional impeachment route.

And I'm not sure prior judicial misconduct would have been enough to do anything but give him a slap on the wrist anyway. How do you remove a SCOTUS for something they did before they got put on the bench?

I know what you mean, but I'm imagining Giuliani on FNC all "Brett Kavanaugh murdered those Girl Scouts before his appointment! There's just no way it can be used against him!"

LOL, I had the same kind of thought writing it and deleted the "...that's what the confirmation hearings are for." end of the post.

KANSAS CITY
It was late September and 10,000 people in a basketball arena in southwestern Missouri were screaming Brett Kavanaugh’s name.

Josh Hawley backed away from the podium as the wave of sound hit. He could feel the stage shaking.

“KA-VA-NAUGH, KA-VA-NAUGH, KA-VA-NAUGH!”

The 38-year-old Republican Senate candidate turned to President Donald Trump, who stood by his side in the packed JQH arena at Missouri State University in Springfield.

“Wow,” Hawley said.

“Wow,” Trump said back.

Hawley’s campaign manager, Kyle Plotkin, was standing in the back of the rally, near the TV cameras and journalists, thinking to himself that he’d never seen anything like this before in Republican politics.

It was like a rock concert. The wild energy of the crowd, the deafening volume.

“This is significant,” Plotkin thought to himself.

For the first time in a bitterly fought campaign, Plotkin felt it in his bones: Claire McCaskill was done.
This is such a depressing read. And no I don't think McCaskill wins w/o the Kavanaugh hearings, but maybe it's closer. She as about to lose to Todd Akin until he got all rape-sciency.
