ABA downgrades Kavanaugh Rating

Somewhat "old" news on the judicial nominations front, and a hat-tip to, the ABA has down-rated Kavanaugh by virtue of fewer voting "well qualified" in the third review.

Yep. Three reviews. The first two had a majority of votes placing Kavanaugh in "well qualified," but the third round has a majority of votes in the "qualified" category.

At least the ABA hasn't revoked the rating as they did with Payne last month -- so far.

There seems to be a deliberate effort to stall and whittle down the nominees that Specter and Frist don't want to handle. And it's my impression that the reason they don't want to handle certain nominees is based on avoiding confrontation with the Democrats.
