The New York Times is right about one thing: there was nothing in this week’s confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to convince Republicans to vote against him — Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Kamala Harris both dropped dud bombshells as they kicked off their 2020 campaigns.

But The Times is pretty generous in claiming that Senate Democrats showed they were willing to “put up a fight.” Have tantrums? Make false accusations? Interrupt? Embarrass themselves? Most certainly.
