What Should Have Happened at the Brett Kavanaugh Hearing

Pretty much what everyone expected. Unfortunately.

(Watch at YouTube)

Democrats and Republicans are once again in the midst of a deep partisan battle, this time about whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is the most qualified Supreme Court nominee in history or a crypto-racist hiding his shadowy résumé. Days of speeches, protests, and calculated outrage have not changed the expected outcome, and Judge Kavanaugh will almost certainly become the next Supreme Court justice.

In the latest Reason video, we explore what we would have liked to see during the Kavanaugh hearings.

Starring Austin Bragg and Andrew Heaton. Written by Meredith Bragg, Austin Bragg, and Andrew Heaton. Edited by Austin Bragg.

    Heaton!!! Still doing the Lord's work here.

  • H. Farnham||

    Amen brother. Now go ye into all the world, and preach the Heaton to every creature.

  • Chipper Morning Baculum||

    Andrew Heaton, fuck yeah! Goooonna make some motherfucking jokes now!

  • BeSure||

    Heaton! Thank you're still around. My man, we need you in these... Trying times.

    FWIW, I can still crack my son up with "what's a leppo?" It never gets old.

    Now, Welch is serviceable on the weekly pod, but your sardonic snark is sorely missed.

  • Dillinger||

    the indignity ... of equal treatment.

  • μ Aggressor||

    Awesome stuff, should have somehow worked in that part where the guy from OK or MO started auctioneering to shut up a protestor

  • wreckinball||

    That was good. Still insane Booker and "Spartacus" cannot be topped. SNL just needs to show the actual video.

  • μ Aggressor||

    Oh I guess that was during the twitter stuff

  • Roger the Shrubber||

    Heaton and Bragg are back! More! More! More!

  • Red Tony||

    I laughed.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Wait until Trump gets to replace RBG, Breyer, and Thomas in the next 6.5 years.

    There will be Lefties jumping off the Senate balcony seating.

    You don't think Antifa will have "free speeched" the capitol building to a smoldering hole in the ground by then?

  • Moo Cow||

    Antifa is *that powerful*?


  • John C. Randolph||

    How powerful do you have to be when you can rely on a left-wing city administration to tell the cops to leave you alone and not impede your tantrums?


  • LarryA||

    Pretty powerful, unless you're also in a "gun-free" zone. So yeah, the U.S. Capital is toast.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Bragg & Heaton, good job guys!

    It's seamless comedy gold.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Good to see Bernie Maxsmith getting work.

    Prog have a mental disorder called ProgTardIsm.

    While there is known cure at this time, a hit of acid or MDA and a vacation to Ibiza have been known to alleviate sufferings.

  • Mark22||

    I've seen the errors of my ways now! I should have voted for Hillary Clinton! The screaming harpies convinced me!

  • Archibald Baal||


    And also Bragg.

    But HEATON!!!

  • DiegoF||

    The writing and acting was top notch but the makeup was pretty low-effort. Neither one of these guys looked remotely like the people they were playing! Remy is a fucking visual effects Oscar nominee by comparison, and all he has is two wigs and a ballpoint pen.

  • macsnafu||

    Heaton! and Bragg. But Mostly Heaton!!!

  • josh||

    That was much more accurate than any news report I've seen.

  • Aloysious||

    Heaton and Bragg. You beautiful bastards.

  • John C. Randolph||

    I do look forward to the day when some nominee for the court or some other office just stands up and says "Oh, go fuck yourselves. I don't need this job."


  • vek||

    As usual, pretty LOL.

  • GiveMeLibertyOrHandouts||

    A Heaton (and Bragg) video. Finally. Terrific as always.
