Writing something about the Kavanaugh vote is tempting, but you know what? It's essentially partisan. Democrats are not going to vote to confirm him. Republicans will. A handful of politicians will dither, possibly sincerely, but most of the votes will have little if anything to do with the facts of his judicial or academic record. As for the allegations concerning his behavior, to the extent that there are any hard facts to be found, they are filtered through partisan viewpoints, exacerbated by mutual rancor and Mr. Trump's inability to keep his mouth shut even when it would best serve him to do so.
"Dumpster fire" is too kind a metaphor.
The Senate will vote and move on to the next mess, the Press baying at their heels.
