Can we just hit the pause button on Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings and admit that both his supporters and detractors have become silly and annoying?

The latest example of extreme silliness involves Zina Bash, a former Kavanaugh clerk who sat behind him on the first day of the hearing. According to some leftwing bloggers, reports The Washington Post, Bash was signaling support for white nationalists by the way she held her fingers during the hearings. The snag to that theory: “Zina is Mexican on her mother’s side and Jewish on her father’s side,” tweeted her husband John Bash. “She was born in Mexico. Her grandparents were Holocaust survivors.”
