So Pres. Trump has announced his SCOTUS pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy: Brett Kavanaugh. I’m neither favorable nor hostile toward the pick, I don’t know much about him. He was Ben Shapiro’s 3rd pick out of the four front runners. That isn’t encouraging; Shapiro is usually (read: always) pretty on target. But then Daily Wire, where Shapiro is editor-in-chief, and National Review both speak of him favorably.
So my question: for those who know, is Kavanaugh a good pick? I would have preferred Barrett at a glance, but then, I’m not as informed as I usually am on these types of things.
(Also, Kavanaugh’s Catholic, which IS encouraging! )
EDIT: Amy Coney Barrett is also Catholic.
