I am still stuck on Brett Kavanaugh claiming states “want to be able to definitively announce the results of the election on election night.” No state definitively announces the results on election night. None. How can it be that Kavanaugh doesn’t understand basic election law?
In 2018, putative liberals like Lisa Blatt and Akhil Amar assured us that Kavanaugh was brilliant, a genius, one of the finest legal minds of the nation. But these claims are impossible to square with Kavanaugh’s work on the court. It’s bizarre! https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/10/brett-kavanaugh-voter-suppression-wisconsin-mistakes.html
Roberts? Super smart guy. Alito? Basically an evil genius. Gorsuch? He can drive me nuts but the brainpower is obvious. Thomas? His fans overstate his intellect but his detractors underestimate it; he is often a very original thinker.

But Kavanaugh is just thoroughly mediocre!
Ah! All credit to @abbydphillip who had this thought a day before me! https://twitter.com/abbydphillip/status/1321053449610502152
