Episode Notes

Barring some unforeseen parliamentary math, Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the DC Circuit will be the next associate justice of the Supreme Court. But as we come to the end of a whirlwind couple of weeks leading up to this announcement… did anything we talked about matter?

Joe and Elie discuss how the media got duped into following a horse race that never existed.
