Xpost from GD Columbus Dispatch op-ed calls on Senators to vote no on Kavanaugh


Columbus Dispatch, RW paper posted Op-Ed on Kavanaugh
Source#:#https://www.dispatch.com/opinion/20181003/editorial-temperament-matters-kavanaugh-is-wrong-for-us-supreme-court

"Last Thursday, Kavanaugh was tested by questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee and the experience drove him to reveal a shockingly combative, defensive and vengeful personality. The notion of granting this person a lifetime of the power vested in a Supreme Court justice is appalling."

snip..."Kavanaughís towering contempt for Democrats on the judiciary committee further exposed him as a fierce partisan who sees the world in terms of friends and enemies, not of individuals with rights under the law.

The sorry spectacle grew even uglier Tuesday night with President Donald Trumpís red-meat appeal to supporters at a political rally in Mississippi. Unable to resist playing to his base, he belittled Ford and her story, mockingly imitating her testimony."

snip " Even in the current climate, it should make senators think twice about honoring the presidentís wishes; especially because he wishes to give immense direct power to an angry partisan who becomes a bully when challenged."

I am suprised at the Dispatch, they have a long history of being a conservative paper.
