Judge Andrew Napolitano: Why I am so deeply disappointed by Trump's Supreme Court pick | Fox News

Now he has given us a nominee to the highest court in the land who typifies the culture he railed against when he claimed he'd drain the swamp. This man and this culture accept cutting holes in the Fourth Amendment because they don't believe that it should protect privacy. This man and this culture accept unlimited spying on innocent Americans by the National Security Agency because they don't believe that the NSA is subject to the Constitution.

This man and this culture even looked the other way in the face of deep state shenanigans against President Trump himself. This man and this culture accept the federal regulation of health care and its command that everyone buy health insurance, called Obamacare. This man and this culture embrace the Nixonian mantra that if the president does it, it is not illegal.

What happened here?

Oho! Surely somewhere in the US there must exist a curmudgeonly middle-aged lawyer who could be trusted to oppose those ideas from a classical liberal perspective, and hew to the Constitution? Failing which he might oppose them from a Christian perspective. Or even a Roman Catholic perspective.

Have you ever fancied trying the judging, Smudger? Would you have the patience for it?

Oh good grief. Get over it. Kavanaugh is not perfect, but he's good. Take your half loaf and go off in the corner.
