I like that the tards had their stories written even before the pick was made.

ABC called him controversial even before they had the name: https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/sc ... even-named

And then there was this beautiful video. These tards were down on the pick DAYS before it was made.

Kavanaugh's opinions are full of contempt for civil rights. He is exactly the sort of judge you'd expect from a conservative administration. We liberals lost the election. Everyone knew going in that Trump would nominate at least two justices in his four years, and we couldn't get people to show up and vote. Elections have consequences, and losing Roe v. Wade might turn out to be one.

The only thing I find troubling is the law review article arguing that Presidents should be immune from impeachment for any crime short of treason. That's an extremely minority opinion, and given the troubles that Trump will face if there the Democrats do take the House, it smears the nomination with obvious corruption.

The Supreme Court is a shitty way to write law. The Dems in Congress could have passed a law at several times in the last 45 years despite any Pubic opposition to Roe, most recently 2008 to 2010. But my guess is half the Pubes would have joined them. End of controversy.

Pretty much my take exactly

Trump picked someone that wouldn’t rule against him

Is there a bigger admittance of guilt?

The Dems are fucked on this, they need to own up to it and put it back on the non-voters that think all politicians are the same. I welcome the Roe vs Wade fiasco to wake people the fuck up (or not)

it's a fairly common Irish-American name, with the misspelling in Lost Soul's OP being the norm -- (beginning with a "C" rather than a "K"). i had never seen "K" before -- doesn t look Gaelic. maybe an Americanization.

Irish uses a C for the [k] sound. Some Irish surnames, mine included were spelled with a K because of Anglicization.

I could be wrong, but I think the airish CKavana(u)ghs give the last syllable the a of father. The American CKavan(u)ghs give it the the vowel of law.

To say that the American CKavana(u)ghs "don't pronounce it correctly" is of course foolish. You are the only authority on how to pronounce your own name.

It's an Irish name. We, the Irish, know how to pronounce it properly. We dictate how Irish names are pronounced. If he pronounces "Kavanaugh" the typical American way, then yes, he is mispronouncing his name.

No one gives the slightest fuck how the Irish pronounce anything. You weren't aware of your global irrelevance? You're less important than New Zealand, really. At least they have hobbits and the like. How odd that you'd be unaware of your lack of importance.

The name of the letter H is correctly pronounced one way in Ireland and is correctly pronounced another way in North America and most of the rest of the English-speaking world.

Sorry, but you don't get to tell Mr and Ms American Cavanaugh how to pronounce their name. You do get to tell them how their great-grandparents pronounced it, and if they want to take that into account, fine. And if not, also fine.

Thomas has never looked to me like somebody who would live to a ripe old age.

But he also doesn't seem like somebody who would give up his seat as long as he could function.

The reason every Republican pick for the last 30 years has been a Catholic is because they were all pre-approved by the Federalist Society, which is run by a devout Catholic. The New Yorker did a piece on the dude a year ago- Leo I think. If you nominate someone not vetted by them, like Harriet Meiers, woe be unto her.

Anyway, in a Prod country, the Supreme Court is limited to Catholics and Jews.*

That's the hot take I've noticed on the left. They say that this guy was one of the more moderate choices in regards to the base's red meat issues, and that by picking this guy, Trump is signaling that yes indeed he's very much afraid of Mueller.

Maybe you were trying to be funny but for somebody who prides himself at always being right you are spectacularly wrong to direct that comment at a Canadian. Last time I was in Memphis people thought I was from England. Granted, I was raised around people with Irish and Maritimer accents but Canadian English generally speaking follows UK/Irish not American.

The only thing I find troubling is the law review article arguing that Presidents should be immune from impeachment for any crime short of treason. That's an extremely minority opinion, and given the troubles that Trump will face if there the Democrats do take the House, it smears the nomination with obvious corruption.
That's the hot take I've noticed on the left. They say that this guy was one of the more moderate choices in regards to the base's red meat issues, and that by picking this guy, Trump is signaling that yes indeed he's very much afraid of Mueller.
I haven't heard anyone mention that the law review article was published during Obama's first year in office.
I genuinely don't think that's relevant. Ok, he didn't write it specifically with Trump in mind; it's an equally disturbing opinion regardless.
