Brett Kavanaugh ROCKED the Senate judiciary committee with his opening statement. The Washington Examiner reports:
Brett Kavanaugh’s enemies are scolding him for being angry in his opening testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Angry and entitled seems like a less than ideal approach from Kavanaugh after what we all just saw

Mainstream commentators are also tsk-tsking him for it. “Not the tone of a future Supreme Court Justice,” Michael Beschloss tweeted, then deleted the tweet.
And maybe, on the “optics,” the anger is not helpful. But on the score of justice, Kavanaugh’s anger is totally fitting.
But if half the political machinery of the federal government, the leaders of one party, and about half of the media came after you with a campaign of lies — which is what this is, if Kavanaugh isn’t guilty of rape and sexual assault — you would be angry.
This is a hearing to be remembered for the ages.
