I’m working on deadline, but I would very much like to hear your take on the way the Kavanaugh nomination has played out for the last two days.
Somehow it always happens that, when the news is hot, I’m either out of town or, as is the case for the past two days, hit with mountains of actual paying legal work. I would love to comment in detail about yesterday’s and today’s events, but I simply can’t, because I’m on deadline.
Therefore, all of you need to do the commenting instead.
I’ll just say quickly:
Kavanaugh: I watched his opening statement and kept tearing up every time he teared up. I’m a sympathy crier, but I think my tears were real and were for the lives the Democrats’ scorched earth tactics are destroying.
I found him absolutely compelling. If you watch, his whole body is trembling with emotion. That’s not a sociopath. That’s an innocent man unjustly accused. And if you haven’t watched it, I recommend you do. I usually confine myself to reading things, which is a much faster way for me to get information, but in this case, Kavanaugh’s voice and affect are part of what needs to be seen:
Also, when Kavanaugh talked about weekly attendance at church, something occurred to me: I don’t know about Ford’s faith, but I do know that a man as devout as Kavanaugh believes that he has a soul. With that belief, he also believes that lying or committing unjust violent acts, such as rape or sexual assault, puts his immortal soul in peril.
Kavanaugh knows that he’ll have to answer in the next life for his acts in this life. Those of his attackers who don’t share his beliefs, whether Ford herself, Democrat Congress critters, or the generic Leftists attacking him have a different belief system. They believe that, if they can get away with evil, immoral acts, they’re home free. The thought of a final reckoning before God does not slow them down.
