It's quite simple: Some political relatives are more equal than others. Agenda-driven journalists love to exploit familial dysfunction when a prominent politician is conservative and his or her kinfolk espouse liberal views.

The left has been in a frenzy since Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court on Monday. They’ve found their ammunition against the nominee in a in a 2009 article for the Minnesota Law Review written by Kavanaugh, in which he argued that a president should be exempt from investigation and civil suits until they are out of office or impeached and removed from office.
