Is it Ignorance .. or apathy?

Judge Kavanaugh no longer teaching at Harvard Law School
John Lott's Website: Seriously, only a little over 700 signatures by Monday with students and alumni who graduated from as far back as 1959. Harvard has about 500 entering students each year. Over say the last 30 years that would be 15,000 graduates. There are currently 1,990 enrolled law students. So the number of signers equals only about one-third of those currently enrolled, let alone all the alumni who have graduated over the decades.
As far as I know, this is "Breaking News".

I never wanted to get into this purely political free-for-all, but at this point the controversy over Judge Kavanaugh's Supreme Court selection has become the number one political issue ... and it should not be.

The Liberal issue seems to be over "Abortion Rights", or the rights of a woman to terminate a pregnancy.   I'm not aware of any other "political" issue which would suggest that Judge Kavanaugh might not be a viable Supreme Court Judge.

WTF do they care?  Most of the Liberal congresspersons are too old to beget congress-children.

And those who are not "Too old", have political issues in mind; issues which do not affect them personally.

While the "abortion" issue is a legitimate controversy, this seems to be an issue which is better handled in the courts; it's not a presidential issue until he makes it so, and Judge Kavanaugh does not strike me as an judiciary who is determined to rule by fiat.

So, what's left?  The Left just doesn't want another Conservative on the Supreme Court .. and that's a legitimate concern ("dead babies" not having a vote.)

 With an odd number of judges among the Supremes, it's no wonder that the Left is worried that The Court might demonstrate a powerful shift to the Right upon confirmation of Kavanaugh's addition to The Court.

The track records of the people who are judging him are not things I would be proud of.

Roe v Wade is a smokescreen. Even if the SCOTUS overturned it, the
decisions on abortion laws would just return to the states---probably where
they belonged all the time per the 10th Amendment.

Their real concern is more likely the 2nd Amendment. Feinstein/Schumer and their minions are bound and determined to dis-arm their subjects, and a
5-4 conservative pro 2A court would probably kill that goal.

Judge K, is a supporter of the 2d Amendment, but the dems would like you to think it is all about Roe v. Wade.

Excellent commentary here about the dichotemy of "just which Civil Rights is K. likely to support/torpedo".

Second Amendment? It's going to be difficult to delete ANY Constitutional Amendment, because then the whole Constitution is subject to controversy. I don't think the most rabid Liberal will carry the controversy that far.

As far as the 2nd Amendment is concerned ... nobody will touch it, directly. The controversy will rage for years, and it will be about INTERPRETATION and limitations, not on actually DELETING the 2nd Amendment.

It appears that we can look forward another interesting decade.
