An hour or after Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as the replacement for Associate Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court I decided to trawl Liberal Twitter for the reaction. I was not disappointed.
Yes, I'd imagine it did. I wonder why history seems to be repeating itself?
I never thought I’d feel like I did on election night again. Today feels like that. https://t.co/TNxQwmtNJw— Ross Morales Rocketto (@RossMoRock) October 5, 2018
Yes. They've given Republicans a significant boost in advance of the November mid-terms, where Democrats were previously indicated as performing well. Well done survivors! Bet you're pleased.

Also, the republic's legislative branch function of selecting the members of the judiciary.
This is what democracy looks like Mr. Trump. Citizens offering their feelings and opinions and demonstrating how the 1st amendment works! https://t.co/w7xz4TjR4u— Jamie Lee Curtis (@jamieleecurtis) October 6, 2018

I don’t know what it says about America that I just burst into tears watching this. Maybe because it’s a glimpse of an America we can create together.
Thank you brothers. https://t.co/Q34YIIODhJ
Should we bring Bill Clinton's hands into the discussion then? How about (Heaven forfend) Joe Biden's?
I Tweeted that the hand Brett Kavanaugh raised today may have been the hand he held over Dr. Ford’s mouth. @DouglasFBaldwin commented “womp womp”.— Dana Gould (@danagould) October 7, 2018
