Leftist obsessions are like Iowa weather: if you don’t like what you have now, wait a little bit and it will change. This past week saw renewed interest in Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after a new book by two New York Times reporters revisited sexual abuse allegations that were as substantiated as…well, the first time these allegations were rolled out to the public. Regardless, the authors of the book are now peddling the fruit of their libel…I mean labors and finding themselves caught in the middle of a credibility crisis of their own creation.

Wherever you fall on the Brett Kavanaugh allegations, there is something extremely personal in the Left’s attacks on him. To better explore this, I figured we could take a few moments to try to puzzle this thing out.

Brett Kavanaugh

What the Left thinks it means – a sexual predator whose crimes were concealed by the Senate and who should have never been approved to be a Supreme Court Justice

What it really means – the reason we have due process in this country

The easiest and most obvious reason the Left hates Kavanaugh so much revolves around a fun little Supreme Court decision the kids like to call Roe v Wade. To put it bluntly, the Left has sanctified this decision that, while attempting to set up guidelines, ultimately sucked. If there were any more legal and rhetorical gymnastics in that decision, the Supreme Court would have gotten a gold medal at the Olympics. Without going too far into the decision itself, it created a construct that has been used under the guise of women’s rights to deny life and, in many cases, avoid consequences for bad decisions.

And the Left is perfectly fine with that.

Where Kavanaugh comes into play is with the current makeup of the Supreme Court itself. Based on simple party-line analysis, the Republicans have a 5-4 majority, which the Left sees as a direct threat to Roe v Wade. Kavanaugh was seen as much more conservative than the Justice he replaced, Anthony Kennedy, so naturally the Left went hard with the “Kavanaugh will overturn Roe v Wade” and they would have gotten away with it if it hadn’t been for those pesky kids and people who took the time to listen to him directly and review his rulings. Seems Kavanaugh stated repeatedly Roe v Wade was settled law and he would not take any action to overturn it. So, nothing would change with regards to the decision, and the Left would be unhappy with that?

Beyond that, I have a deeper take on why the Left hates Kavanaugh, and it all goes back to Merrick Garland in 2016. As hard as it is to believe, the Left still hold a grudge over what they call a stolen seat. (It was never his seat to begin with, so it can’t be stolen, nor can Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell be held responsible for following Senate procedures in an election year, but why split hairs?) Since McConnell beat the Left at their own game, they have been so salty merely looking at them discussing this matter will give you high blood pressure. At least until you listen to their opinions, which will give you high blood pressure for a completely different reason.

Anyway, the fact the Left couldn’t get Garland on the Supreme Court has given them a hate boner for Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Kavanaugh and Gorsuch could cure cancer, AIDS, and athlete’s foot and the Left would still hate them because they represent what the Left craves: power to shape judicial policy for decades to come. The Left has made it a practice to use precedent as a means to reshape the world and society when they can’t do it through the ballot box. One of the greatest stumbling blocks to that is the Supreme Court, who has the power to overturn court decisions and have no higher court to appeal to if/when the Left’s plans go awry. Once they get to the High Court, it’s one and done. Even though they’ve scored some judicial victories, the prospect of future victories gets slimmer with more conservative and more originalist Justices.

As a result, the Left is going all out to undercut Kavanaugh since their efforts to shatter confidence in Gorsuch were as successful as Beto O’Rourke’s campaign right now. When they’re not questioning his emotional stability, making vague and as-yet unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault, or suggesting his personal debt was paid off through nefarious means, the Left will track down any and all dirt on Kavanaugh in the hopes of persuading the country to take up their cause.

Guess what, kids? You’re not reaching anyone who isn’t already on your side. And the new book isn’t helping your cause because…how can I put this delicately…you guys suck at research and keeping your stories straight. The fact Kavanaugh has already been through at least three background checks for his previous judicial positions without even a whisper of what you Leftists accuse of him of doing should tell you there might not be anything there. Not to mention, your attempts to use the Anita Hill script and change the ending so you guys win didn’t work, mainly because nobody on your side has put forth a cogent case against Kavanaugh. What you characterized as mental instability was Kavanaugh finally having enough of Democrat Senators who shouldn’t be allowed to ask questions in a game of 20 Questions, let alone in a Senate confirmation hearing, to slime him to score cheap political points.

Your case against Kavanaugh is dead, Jim. Move on and leave him alone.
