Can you take what we say about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh seriously considering we’re conservatives and he’s a conservative? Are we defending him because we are genuinely discomfited by how insubstantial the allegations against him are, or are we doing so because we agree with him ideologically? We explore this on today’s podcast. Give a listen.

    We can if we understand how it works. You take the facts and compare them to the law. So far the facts are she knew him when he was in high school. She didn’t want him on the court. 2 facts. Her statement today is contradicted by 2012 therapists notes. But so far, the story has been filtered through the Washington Post, so it runs the chance they did a poor job with it.

    It would not surprise me in 1/2 of who he went to school with didn’t like him or want him on the court. It would not surprise me if 3/4 of who he went to school with said stupid things to look cool especially while drinking. It would not surprise me if the vast majority of the boys chased girls.

    Good conversation. It’s always good to check ones objectivity even though we have strong political views.
