Why does his name sound familiar?
Wasn’t he on Saturday Night Live back in the 90’s or something? Oh wait, was he that senator who had to step down because he was inappropriate with women? That’s him, now we remember.
Seems since Al can’t actually do anything about Kavanaugh getting confirmed (not like any Democrat can actually stop it but we digress) he decided to write a piece for USA Today pretending that only Republicans choose SCOTUS nominees for political reasons.
Everybody on the Republican side of the dais knows Kavanaugh’s nomination is purely to further the Republican agenda. Everybody's in on it. It is maddening. So I wrote about it for USA Today. https://t.co/x0GEEtia5X

Brett Kavanaugh is a partisan who was nominated, and will likely be confirmed, in order to help achieve the Republican Party’s goals: destroying protections for people with pre-existing health conditions, eradicating what’s left of workers’ rights and, yes, overturning Roe v. Wade. Everyone knows it — including Sen. Susan Collins. When she emerged from her meeting with Kavanaugh, she said he told her he considers Roe v. Wade “settled law.” If she somehow believed it then — even after Trump had promised to make overturning Roe a litmus test for his nominees — she can’t possibly believe it now, given new emails showing that Kavanaugh himself has questioned whether Roe is indeed settled.
Hey, don’t look at us, we didn’t write the thing.
And c’mon Democrats, Kavanaugh is a Constitutionalist, so as long as Roe is Constitutional y’all have nothing to worry about.
I bet you wish you’d thought up that “Dick in a Box” skit.

Now that song will be stuck in our heads all day. THANKS MAN.
I hope USA Today kept its female staff at a safe distance.

You used voter fraud to beat Norm Coleman and further the Democrat agenda. And Obama nominated liberals to further that same agenda. Election winners get to do that.

And everyone on the Democrat side knows their opposition is just to further the Democrats agenda…

Wherein "Republican agenda" means interpreting the Constitution as it was debated, ratified, and then amended to keep up with the national desire lo these 27 times.
As opposed to legislating from the bench when you can't get a majority from the legislative bodies elected.

It was to save the planet, duh.
You think groping women is "funny". Have a seat, degenerate.

Oh yeah, those sneaky Republicans. The Democrats are opposed purely on principle, of course.

Love how you pretend the choices Democrats make are non-partisan and not intended to further your agenda… https://t.co/ymBNFNKeMT

You spelled "Constitution" wrong

And we know how much Democrats loathe the Constitution; what did Obama call it? A barrier?
