I missed most of the Senate hearing with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, but I caught some of it, including the moment of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) having an absolute fit on national TV about how mean the Democrats are being to poor Brett.
(to Senators) If you wanted an FBI investigation, you could have come to us. What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020. You’ve said that. not me. [to Kavanaugh] You’ve got nothing to apologize for. When you see Sotomayor and Kagan, tell them that Lindsey said hello, because I voted for them. (to Senators) I would never do to them what you’ve done to this guy. This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics. And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to this guy.
Two words, Lindsey: Merrick Garland.
