Kavanaugh’s TV interview was extraordinary. So was the platform he chose.

In his opening statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stressed how important impartiality and non-partisanship should be for a Supreme Court justice. “A good judge must be an umpire—a neutral and impartial arbiter who favors no litigant or policy,” he said. “The Supreme Court must never be viewed as a partisan institution. The Justices on the Supreme Court do not sit on opposite sides of an aisle. They do not caucus in separate rooms.”
Which is why Kavanaugh appearing on Fox News yesterday to defend himself was so extraordinary.
