  Image result for virgil

Can American public life get any crazier?  Get any more circus-like?  Any more gladiatorial combat-like?   It seems that all we see and read about these days are accusations, investigations, confrontations—and, as Brett Kavanaugh put it, “character assassinations.” 

Welcome to the Jungle

Indeed, the fight over Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination provides a snapshot of the national maelstrom.   As Kavanaugh said in his September 28 hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, “This has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit . . . My family and my name have been totally and permanently destroyed . . . This confirmation process has become a national disgrace.”
