Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America savor three good martinis for conservatives.  First, they applaud Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse for reminding his fellow senators of the constitutional purpose of the judicial branch, how Brett Kavanaugh out to be evaluated, and why the political “charades” needs to stop.  They also cheer Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey for naming former Sen. Jon Kyl to replace John McCain in the U.S. Senate until the 2020 election.  And they welcome Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s decision not to seek another term and reflect on his disastrous record in both Washington and the Windy City.

    The Arizona governor should have picked an up and coming conservative in his state. Instead, it’s obvious to me that he just wants to run for the Senate seat himself when he’s done being governor.

    What are they looking for in Kavanaugh’s papers?

    Anything to raise a stink with. Anything that might turn public opinion against him. Anything to justify their NO vote.

    No matter how badly they have to misinterpret something to do it.

    This way, he gets somebody much more conservative than McCain, but no one can raise a stink about it.

    Which is why Trump not releasing his taxes was a master stroke.
