I don’t usually do this. I would rather write about people and corruption.
I saw part of the hearings live and I was surprised. Shocked is too much. Disappointed.
The woman was rock-solid. The judge was not. “I like beer” he said over and over.
I didn’t like him. I thought about all the people, attorneys, defendants, and others he must have berated as a judge. Often they probably deserved it. But I doubt anyone can be right all the time.
He appeared as a spoiled, used to getting his way, angry person. He appeared ignorant of the whole process that he must keep his cool and look like a supreme court judge. What’s more (and remember, I don’t know a thing) he appeared as someone who is capable of getting drunk and violent.
The more I think about it, he appeared as someone who is guilty.
How guilty? If he really didn’t make a habit of it… If he isn’t that sort of man… Why didn’t he just say ‘I remember her. She is an attractive woman. We frolicked a little.”
It seemed to me that he could very well have an angry pattern. I see no lies in the women, but it is always a possibility. I don’t know because I’ve never been accused of any such thing. I have also never sought a high-level political confirmation.
What I saw is a man who became very angry, emotional, and unsettled during a legitimate questioning session. From what I saw he is unfit for long-term duty on the highest court.
