Brett Kavanaugh’s Character Witnesses

This cartoon almost has fewer men in it than the “Women for Kavanaugh” bus.

I still think Kavanaugh will be confirmed, for the very reason cited in the Mitch McConnell panel. But the longer the process is drawn out, and the more Republicans have to defend him, the less time they have for other shenanigans leading up to the midterms.

Brett Kavanaugh’s Rap Sheet

With all the plea deals and guilty verdicts going around this week, Republican members of Congress are scrambling to ram Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination through. Hopefully time’s running out before the public finds out he’s a scummy GOP hack who thinks Trump and all presidents should be above the law.

Mitch McConnell Rewrites the Rules

Become a patron and read this  and every comic early, and get some other swag.

After denying Merrick Garland’s appointment to the Supreme Court for nearly a year, Mitch McConnell blew up the rulebook to put Neil Gorsuch into dead Scalia’s seat. If they ever regain power, the Democrats would be wise to use the same tactics to shut out Republicans, instead of pining for the “Days of Decorum” that only existed in pundits’ fever dreams.

Policing After Utah v. Strieff

Policing After Utah V. StrieffThe understaffed Supreme Court session came to a close this week. The results were a mixed bag, but the Utah v. Strieff decision was the most egregious. It allows for illegally obtained evidence to be used against citizens. The majority said a cop’s instincts are good enough to get around the cumbersome bits of the Fourth Amendment that require probable cause and warrants.

The decision could also nullify over twenty years of Law & Order reruns.
