The people(?) have spoken

I said I believe Christine Blasey-Ford and still do. I also said that I didn’t think Kavanaugh belonged on the highest court in the nation, and I still believe that too. But regardless of what I might believe regarding Kavanaugh or Blasey-Ford, Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh, and Blasey-Ford is….what?

Will Christine Blasey-Ford go down in history as a strong and brave voice for millions of women (and men) who’ve suffered through the shame and mental anguish of sexual assault? Will her courageous testimony to the senate bring a louder voice to the #MeToo movement?

What about Justice Kavanaugh. The word “justice” in front of “Kavanaugh” doesn’t sit right with me. It’s skewered by his angry and uppity attitude when he gave his testimony during the senate hearing. Is that the demeanor he’ll be using as Justice Kavanaugh?

Time will tell in both instances.
