American Elephants


CONFIRMED! by The Elephant's Child

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed. He will serve as the 114th justice to serve on the United States Supreme Court.

He was confirmed by the United States Senate by a vote of 50-48. A confirmation of a fine and honorable man in spite of false attacks and scurrilous character assassination. As Victor Davis Hanson wrote:

As a Supreme Court justice, Kavanaugh would have withstood every imaginable smear and slander and yet stayed defiant in defending his character and past, proof of both his determination and principles. His near-solitary rebuttal to his Senate accusers may suggest that Kavanaugh could prove to be among the most fearless justices on the Court.

Indeed, the only lasting effect, if any, of the serial smears lodged against him might be that in the future, as in the case of Justice Thomas, Kavanaugh would be essentially immune from progressive media attacks. What he went through likely has inoculated him from the Georgetown-party-circuit syndrome of conservative Supreme Court judges’ eventually becoming more liberal by the insidious socialization within the larger D.C. progressive media, political, and cultural landscape.
