Questions to pose to Kavanaugh supporters.

For those unfortunate enough to be exposed in public to rabid Republican Kavanaugh supporters and in light of his well-documented political bias in everything he's done in his career, perhaps give these questions a try:

Q1: In America, why do you think we don't put a judicial candidate's political affiliation on ballots?

Correct citizen's answer: Because judges are not supposed to allow their personal politics affect their judgments. We're therefore supposed to only consider their education, life experiences, record of honesty and judicial experience.

Q2: In light of question #1, are you aware that throughout his career both has a political assistant and as a judge, that Brent Kavanaugh has consistently shown a very hard bias toward the extreme right in his writings and judgments?

Correct citizen's answer: Yes, I've fully reviewed his career history.

Q3: Then, in light of Question #2, do you think he would make fair and impartial judgments for all American citizens, regardless of their politics, gender, race or creed?

Correct citizen's answer: No, not really.

Q4: Are you aware that Kavanaugh has lied to or made proven deceptive statements to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his interviews and if so, do you think he can be a fair and impartial Supreme Court justice?

Correct citizen's answer: Yes, then no.

Q5: Do you think it's wise to appoint a judge to our Supreme Court that called Hillary Clinton a bitch in front of several friends?

Correct citizen's answer: No.

My thinking is to catch them off guard and ask them questions not related to his sexual dalliances and drinking. I suspect that just like with Trump, they could care less about his sexual moral character.

Please understand I don't expect them to answer in the way I proposed, but those questions may break the ice and get them to think if they're capable.

1. Unfortunately, those who support him and The Circus Peanut

are not capable of reason, they simply parrot talking points and aren't afraid to say "boys will be boys"!

3. In general I agree Bettie, but....

I feel we have a moral obligation to at least put challenging ideas out to stir people's thinking to help counter their bubble mentality.

Like with baby steps, it has to start somewhere and we may be able to plant small seeds of change without appearing to be just rabid political hacks.

Now, if we could just switch off Faux News and Limbaugh for a while..... .....

4. I'm extremely discouraged today

Give me a few days and I'll be ready to try to talk to the irrational.

But, most of my irrantionals are evangelicals who believe that god tells them to be horrible.

8. So am I, Bettie and my depression does not help a bit.

I must confess that the sector of their herd you mentioned I cannot deal with at all. I fully resent the way they have adulterated the religion I was raised under in the 50s/60s, even though I'm not a religious person today.

They have adulterated so much of our society, I'm not convinced we'll ever fully recover: our language and public dialog, our public media, our educational systems, our religions, our military, and attitudes toward our government.

It is all admittedly very discouraging.......

2. Last questions ---- Who paid off your $250k credit card debt? Why did they do it?

What do you owe them?

5. Good one!

And, I saw a photo of him with Karl Rove all buddy-buddy and almost lost my dinner. His hard-right bullshit seems to have no end.

7. I don't see you getting past question 2

They'll insist that Kavanaugh is a well qualified objective judge. ABA well qualified, years on the bench and all that. Democrats are politicizing as usual. End if story. Oh, and since they think Hillary actually is a bitch, he gets extra points for saying it like it is.

9. Marylandblue, I forgot to mention...

I wouldn't dare ask more than one or two for fear of tantrum.

But, the original idea for my post was based on the first question which is something I think needs lots of media exposure.

10. Hard core Repukes only care that he would vote to

overturn Roe v. Wade. He could have raped a woman in front of the Senate panel, and the R's would still vote to confirm him.
