The Brett Kavanaugh hearings are today. Expect Democrats to launch their 2020 campaigns provide thoughtful, not at all unhinged questions. While acting like they have any chance to stop him (see Leftists FREAKING Over Brett Kavanaugh Accidentally Prove a Conservative Point and Hillary Clinton: Brett Kavanaugh Will Take America Back to the 1850s). For Republicans, really just expect them to tell Kavanaugh his farts taste like liberty and justice.
For the future Supreme Court justice himself, he looks ready to “own the libs” as the kids say. Check out his opening statement.

For those of you who may not remember, Garland was Obama’s choice to fill the seat of Justice Scalia. The Republicans blocked that nomination, as it was made in Obama’s final months as El Presidente, and there was a presidential election in full swing. So for Kavanaugh to give the judge a shout out…
Game respects game, sir.
I guess we’ll wait and see if the hearings provide for any excitement. They don’t usually. Personally, I find them to be the second most tedious bit of political theatre we obsess over. Behind only the State of the Union.
But if one of the Democrat Senators says something particularly stupid, I’m sure we’ll have few jokes about it.
