There are some takes on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh that are pretty funny but of all the takes I’ve read the single most tone deaf belongs to Susan Hennessey of CNN
One final thought: I think Trump has handed Senate Democrats an absolute gift in nominating the principal author of the Starr report, that the confirmation fight will be excruciating for the President, and that he will ultimately regret this decision.

The theory of course being that Ken Starr was hated therefore Kavanaugh will be tarred by the association.
If Ms. Hennessey wants to speak about associations, let me show her one association that I posted about in the past:
If you watch those people filing out I’m sure you’ll find more than one Democrat who is now going nuts over Kavanaugh in that crowd.
Just a few years ago that would have been no big deal, but since the #Pervnado stuck bringing down Harvey Weinstein, Mark Halperin, Matt Lauer, Keven Spacey et/al suddenly defending Bill Clinton has a high price.
So while Susan Hennessey is sure Senate Democrats are DYING to use Kavanaugh’s association with Ken Starr against him, I think my tweet reply puts it pretty well:
yeah because if there is one thing that will hurt the #gop in #election2018 during the #metoo era is reminding the country that @BillClinton was getting BJ's from an intern in the oval office while @HillaryClinton Democrats & media defended him en masse. https://t.co/xGhl6PMX37

Or as Andrew Breitbart once said in Lexington: Bring it on!
It’s been a bad tipjar year, we are in July and despite the booming economy we’ve raised barely 20% of last years total (which is why our expansion plans have been abandoned).
