What to say if you support Kavanaugh’s politics but don’t like rape

Of course, people shouldn’t support Kavanaugh’s politics. He’s as far-right as Scalia without Scalia’s (supposed) appeal. But, unlike Scalia, he seems unable to answer real questions about his judicial thought process and his record on the bench. Republicans seemingly knew about the accusations against Kavanaugh for months, but Trump likely only picked Kavanaugh because of Kavanaugh’s record of ruling in favor of executive power. Yikes.

But, if you absolutely must support Kavanaugh’s politics (which no one should do) and you don’t want to be a scumbag about rape, here’s all you have to say:

“I support Kavanaugh’s politics, but the accusations are serious enough to warrant an investigation.”

There, that was easy, wasn’t it?
