One Of Kavanaugh’s Biggest Supporters Now Thinks His Nomination Is Dead (VIDEO)

Last Thursday, live TV showed us why our country can’t have nice things. Rich powerful white men throughout our nation’s capital scrunched their faces like toddlers needing a beer binky and screamed victimhood at the very idea that someone’s past might prevent them from becoming an even more powerful white man. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who’s auditioning for new BFFs after losing John McCain, played right to an audience of one, Donald Trump, with his own petulant, foot stomping temper tantrum. Daddy approved.

Even then, Graham’s outburst seemed to be a bit too much, as if he knew it was a lost cause, but one worth pretending to fight for. That was before the FBI became involved in investigating the least popular Supreme Court nominee ever. While Graham, Brett Kavanaugh’s biggest attack Chihuahua ally, refuses to go down without a fight, his latest words are tinged with imminent defeat. He knows Kavanaugh is toast. His solution? To put it in rich white guy parlance, a mulligan.

If these were normal political times, Kavanaugh’s nomination wouldn’t have made it past the vetting process. Even if it had, its political unpopularity would have stopped it dead in its tracks. These aren’t normal political times, though. Republicans are prepared to run the nomination into the ground, and if Graham has his way, pick it back up and run it into the ground again.

“Here’s what I would tell the president. I would appeal the verdict of the Senate to the ballot box,” Graham told Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday night. “This good man should not be destroyed.”

“I would renominate him,” Graham told Hannity.

Then Graham, who despite spending more than 20 years in Washington, seemed to forget who his political rivals really are. He suggested asking voters in red states to threaten their Senators to vote with Kavanaugh or else. The problem with that idea, though, is that those Senators are all pretty much a sure vote for Kavanaugh. Also, neither states nor voters vote on Supreme Court justices.

“I would take this case to the American people,” Graham said, “and I’d ask voters in Indiana and Missouri and North Dakota, and other places where Trump won, saying who he would nominate if he got to be president, and see if voters want to appeal the verdict of their senators.”

Perhaps if we’re lucky, Graham’s toothless grandstanding will make it back to his own base.
