Rage

Rebecca Traister talks to Ezra Klein about her new book Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger in today’s podcast. Traister observes Thad Christine Blasey Ford and Hillary Clinton can’t be angry without it backfiring on them but Bart O’Kavanaugh can actually use anger to his benefit.

As for Kavanaugh, his Supreme Court nomination is his reward for his career of doing the dirty work of his party. It knows he’s reliable. He’s proven his “loyalty” with his Trump-esque temper tantrum last week. And now he’s a made man, bound to do what the party and Trump want him to do regardless as to how many people he hurts.

I wouldn’t want to accept this appointment under these circumstances. He’s deeply unpopular, we know what he’s going to do and he will go down in history as one of the worst Supreme Court justices that dismantled our government that we have ever had. His name will become about as warm and fuzzy as Roland Freisler. That’s the legacy he’s going to leave his daughters.

As for the senators who vote for him? There are no words. They simply must go, if we can still vote them out in November.
