The American Bar Association needs to reopen its review of Kavanaugh's fitness for SCOTUS

According to WaPo, the ABA downgraded Kavanaugh back in 2006 for being too biased among other things. Given Kavanaugh's Thursday performance, it is very clear that he doesn't belong on a court of any kind. If the ABA continues to allow Kavanaugh to skate on a "well qualified" grade despite his obvious meltdown Thursday, their credibility is as toast as his is.

2. ".....Give it up already....."

I'm not sure what our colleague Swifts means by a "meltdown."

The only meltdowns I saw were when the Democrat senators questioned him earlier, and got more and exasperated.

8. Republicans cited it as "the gold standard"

Kavanaugh is sullying the gold standard if the ABA doesn't quickly change their review of him.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has sent the American Bar Association into exile, ending the group’s semiofficial role in evaluating candidates for the federal bench.

If you don't stop lying and spreading propagan....., well, you are already sullied.
