At The Financial Times: Christine Todd Whitman on Kavanaugh Confirmation. Political Observer comments

The only ‘Moderate Republican’ that this newspaper could produce, on short notice, is Corporatist Christine Todd Whitman?

‘Whitman is also co-chair of the CASEnergy Coalition, and in 2007, voiced support for a stronger future role of nuclear power in the United States.[‘

There is indeed a rush to confirm Mr. Kavanaugh and the measure of the political desperation of the Republicans is this hysterical outburst by Dixiecrat Lindsey Graham:

Some have speculated that this is the senator’s audition for the seat of Attorney General, now occupied by fellow Dixiecrat Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions , who now enjoys the continuing displeasure of the erratic autocrat Trump!

Lindsey Graham gives a bungling performance, but it just demonstrates the comedy lurking beneath the outbursts of Kavanaugh, and his Republican sponsors and New Democratic antagonists. In sum, an utterly corrupt political class and their collective nihilism.

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
