Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist, has already weighed in heavily on the Brett Kavanaugh nomination: she posited that “Republicans are all about victims going through hell” and she’s holding out for accuser Christine Blasey Ford to finally speak out and give women the message that they have power.

After those hot takes, you’d think she had nowhere else to go, and she does seem to be slowing down in her criticisms of Kavanaugh; by appearing on Fox News to tell his side of the story, he lowered himself to a mere partisan hack.
