The liberal freakout over Brett Kavanaugh is not helping

In nominating conservative appellate court judge Brett Kavanaugh to succeed retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, President Trump has done something exceedingly normal. That in itself is noteworthy. During the opening weeks of the Trump administration, it became commonplace for liberal political observers to intone gravely that the Trump presidency — including the new president's words, actions, hiring choices, policy priorities, and ethical conflicts — was "not normal." Out of this focus on the administration's divergence from the normal came a debate that continues today — about the liberal democratic "norms" that the president, his Cabinet, and staffers routinely violate, placing America's form of government itself in jeopardy.
