It’s in the consistent behavior.
Explicitly partisan, notably his work with Kenneth Starr during the Clinton hearings in the 90s and reiterated during his direct condemnation of Democrats in his own hearing the other day, including threats that “they will pay for this”.
Activist phrasing during his dissent in the immigrant girl abortion case.
This kind of activism is fine for a politician.
But this kind of activism is too partisan for a Supreme Court Justice.
A judge who is explicitly partisan is an activist for a political party.
Kavanaugh is an activist. If you want an activist that’s your thing. I don’t. Have food.
I wouldn’t want an activist for the “other team” either. Have opinions? Yeah. But be brazen and sloppy to extend it into a “justice is blind” framework? No.
But that’s the point here. There’s a boundary for ultra conservative judges and Scalia is it.
Anything beyond Scalia is a political activist.
I’d say Neil Gorsuch is as right as Scalia was.
Kavanaugh is off the chart and does not belong there.
Bell Curve. Scalia and Gorsuch are in the orange. So is RGB.
Kavanaugh is outside of the orange.
Past month, I’ve made good use of Snooze and Unfollow recently with one or two “Unfriend”. No blocks yet.
Equal parts left and right. Go too far, abuse my other friends, be a “johnny one note” and I’m done. Should’ve done it long ago but now I’m ready.
