Steve Moore: The latest GOP Hail Mary is the "Brett Kavanaugh Defense".

"I was so honored when I received the call from Donald Trump, but all that has happened since then was one personal attack after another and a kind of assassination that has nothing to do with economics." They attract a Kavanaugh on the other hand "Moore said. "I'm taking a 60% pay cut to get this job done, so you mean, I mean, it's a real public service."

Moore knows exactly what he's doing here. He knows that the name of the conservative conservative Kavanaughs is the image of a rabid group of Democrats – and the media – who pushes all sorts of negative information into the open, hoping to stop someone who does not share his belief system from being a member of the public Public life to serve. You do it again! Moore tries to say it. Do not leave her!

Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court last year has become a massive moment in the longstanding struggle between Liberals and Conservatives in the country. Appointed by Trump to occupy the seat of retired Justice Minister Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh was considered the voice that would put the Supreme Court to the right for years if confirmed. The fight for Kavanaugh went from a big deal to a MASSIVE deal when Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor, claimed the SCOTUS candidate sexually assaulted her when they were both teenagers. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations and suggested, along with President Donald Trump, that Ford was under pressure from the Democrats. (Ford contacted Sen's office. Dianne Feinstein, a Californian Democrat, insisted that no elected official from either party asked her to tell her story publicly.)

The Senate finally confirmed Kavanaugh after a narrowly divided, largely partisan vote – but the wounds (on both sides) remained. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told the New York Times, "The virtual mob that attacked all of us in this process set our base on fire." US President Elizabeth Warren, candidate for her party's nomination for 2020, called the process "total deception."

Although Kavanaugh became the newest member of the Supreme Court over six months ago, the anger on both sides has not resolved. And it's not likely to disappear in the foreseeable future – if history is a guide.

Especially in politics there are two current examples.

* In 2002, then-Rep. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) Delivered ads that seemingly questioned the patriotism of Sen. Max Cleland (D), who had lost three limbs in Vietnam. (The ad used Cleland's vote against the Department of Homeland Security's facility, much like supporting Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.) Chambliss won. But almost a decade after this race, the Democrats called the ad – and Chambliss' lack of remorse – as a sign of everything they fought for.

In the presidential election in 2004, a group known as Swift Boat Veterans for Truth posted ads asking questions about the Senate of Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry (D). Kerry initially ignored the ads, believing that his service in Vietnam – on which he had strongly supported himself in his campaign against President George W. Bush – stood by. The ads worked, however, and Kerry responded too late and contributed to his loss in a highly-winning race. Democrats have warned against being "nimble" since the election – with nasty advertisements surprising only with a loose connection (if any) to the truth. (Kerry himself spent years after his loss exposing the claims made in the ads.)

The point here is that there are some moments in politics that go so deep that they never really heal for some people. You could scratch. You might even forget the cut sometimes. But the slightest bump, the slightest provocation and the scabs break off. And you are reminded again of the pain – and anger – that the original moment caused.

That's what Moore hopes for. By connecting with Kavanaugh – and what he calls Conservative – he will become the new celebrity of the Conservatives who see the left as a devastating horde throwing out anyone who does not shirk their radical beliefs.

Will it sell? A seat in the Federal Reserve usually does not suggest the passion of either party, such as a seat on the Supreme Court. But for Moore, whose nomination fails, he has very little to lose and a seat in the country's most powerful monetary power to win.
