That Brett Kavanaugh must be some lady killer. I’m talking about all those women who have come out to support his nomination for the Supreme Court. Honestly, I can’t remember another nominee who’s mustered this kind of backing from former female colleagues. He must be the epitome of the enlightened man. Or some type of Svengali.

As you may know, his former female clerks wrote an impassioned letter to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee (18 out of 25 signed the letter; the remaining seven were restricted by employers from doing so). Among other things, they lauded Kavanaugh for his mentorship and promotion of gender equality, noting that he’s hired 25 women and 23 men as law clerks. They also wrote that many of them wouldn’t be where they are today without his personal stewardship.
