Brett Kavanaugh’s passionate outrage during his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday is generating scorn, not empathy, from plenty of liberals.
“I couldn’t help but think that if a woman had ever performed that way, they would say ‘hysterical,’” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Saturday, later adding, “I think that he disqualifies himself with … the manner in which he went after the Clintons and the Democrats.”
“Kavanaugh has revealed himself to be a man without measure, capable of frenzy, full of conspiratorial venom against Democrats. Justice would not be served by his presence on the Supreme Court,” wrote New York Times columnist Roger Cohen.
And The Washington Post’s Paul Waldman struck a similar note, writing, “Think about the man you saw on Thursday—that angry, entitled, disrespectful, uncontrolled man appealing not to the country but to his party to rally around him in order to stick it to the other side—and ask yourself if he demonstrated the kind of temperament you’d want on the Supreme Court.”
In other words, even if Kavanaugh’s FBI investigation finds he is not guilty of the accusations against him, the left is gearing up to argue that his manner was partisan and unbecoming a jurist of the highest court in the land.
Let’s take a step back and review the accusations that caused the mild-mannered Kavanaugh to be outraged.
He was accused of being the leader of a gang rape ring.
He was accused of exposing himself to a Yale classmate. (At a party that no one remembers.)
He was accused of attempted rape by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford while in high school over 36 years ago. (No one at the alleged party will corroborate Ford’s account.)
After 10 days of being accused of these heinous acts without one shred of evidence other than the word of the accuser, I, too, would address the committee members with scorn.
And you can bet if Kavanaugh treated the accusations without passion, those criticizing him would say he was cold and unfeeling, a clear sign that he is guilty as charged.
