It won't end with confirmation.

Will Kavanaugh be confirmed? Probably. Will doubts about his fitness go away? Never.

Hey, Republican Congressman!

Honestly, Republican Congressman, can you really possibly believe that the current administration's and the Republicans' agenda is good for America, for all or even most of Americans?

Savagery vs Civilization
