The Reality of Smears

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

I’ve received my fair share of vulgar, profane and worse in response to my post on Kavanaugh which was mostly about the probability stack.  Of course (as is my usual practice) it was titled that way, on purpose, because that’s what it was about.

I also received a bit of pushback from some people I know reasonably well — and while I disagree, in that they tended to focus in one specific place (which is demonstrably incorrect when one writes an entire piece) it nonetheless is worthy of response.

So here it is, since this nonsense is still going on.

First, I want to dispel something right up front — there are those who say that because a Supreme Court justice is appointed for life it is imperative that any investigation warranted on anything, ever in said person’s past be complete before the vote is taken.
