    Aren't most, if not all, of his past rulings …. public documents?

    It's all theater. Barring something incredible coming to light, the guy is on the Supreme Court. That fight was lost when trump won.

    His rulings are, but he also had other jobs before being appointed to the federal bench that they want to look at. The ones they are mainly complaining about were from when he worked in the White House Counsel office under the Bush administration. Those documents are reviewed by an outside party before release, which is something that started with Kagan's nomination and her documents related to her time working for Clinton.

    It is 100% awesome that you chose the biggest premature exclamation of all time for your point. Just about as accurate too. ;)

    A) more documentation on Kavanaugh than last five nominees combined already provided.
    B) a bunch of people that swore to vote no the day he was announced don't care to know and won't bother reading a word of any of it.

    Another day like today, more of this puling, childish crap, and they should simply adjourn the hearing and proceed to a vote.

    Rulings? I would guess so ,but he worked in the W. Bush WH and was there when the search for legal justification for waterboarding, and other extreme interrogation methods was developed. I think they may want to see how involved he was with that. There are other issues too.

    Hard to blame them after what happened with Bybee.

    It's too bad for the democrats that they haven't found any ugly, Kavanaugh text messages. You know, like the texts of certain, corrupt FBI agents.

    No idea what they reviewed last time around. I would guess they would want to go deeper this time around. Or maybe not since the second piece I linked said few people were actually looking at the documents as they were too busy standing in front of the cameras complaining about them

    Kabuki is an ancient Japanese form of gesture-based dance that originated in the dry riverbeds of Kyoto in the 17th century. Because the art uses slow, minimal gestures to convey whole skeins of meaning, it is used to describe political acts that are only for show and have no basis in reality.

    I wish they would do this shit behind closed doors. It would take 15 min. It's just a crass infomercial that makes drunken dog rasslin' look respectable.

    One thing that you won't hear a peep about in this hearing is his ruling in favor of the CIA in the long-standing lawsuit over its continued withholding of JFK assassination documents in violation of the law. No one in all this "controversy" gives a damn about the assassination of a president. But that and his working for the Bush-Cheney White House is more than enough for me to hope this creature of the powers that be doesn't get confirmed. But that's just another vain hope.

    1) The decision to not fill Scalia's seat and keep the court at 8 justices for over one year was a travesty.

    2) The protestors yesterday should be ashamed of themselves. Disrupting hearings is not proper protest, in my opinion. Time and a place for that, and the hearing room was neither the time nor the place.
