Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing has been riddled with frequent outbursts from the gallery, leading to multiple ejections and arrests.

Last year, Kavanaugh praised former Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist's dissent in the Roe case and as a sitting federal judge ruled against a young immigrant held in US custody who wanted to obtain an abortion, delaying her care.

Guttenberg wrote on Twitter that, as the morning session ended, he "walked up to Judge Kavanaugh" and attempted to introduce himself "as Jaime Guttenberg's dad".

"Of course the violence in the schools is something we all detest and want to do something about", Kavanaugh said.

"A good judge must be an umpire - a neutral and impartial arbiter who favours no litigant or policy", Kavanaugh said in the excerpts released by the White House.

AP photographer Andrew Harnik shared an arresting image of Guttenberg extending his hand while Kavanaugh looks him in the eye while both hands are occupied buttoning his blazer. All in all, nothing about the opening to the Kavanaugh hearings was normal.

"I have served with 17 other judges, each of them a colleague and a friend, on a court now led by our superb chief judge, Merrick Garland", the prepared remarks say.

Republican Senator Lindsay Graham said President Trump often drove him insane but his choice of Kavanaugh was the best thing he had ever done. "We have not had an opportunity to have a meaningful hearing", said Sen. "And he was a champion of liberty", Kavanaugh will say, per the excerpts. He fiercely defended the independence of the Judiciary.

"A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law", he added. "A judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent". "And the only way we can look at it is to understand the documents and it's very, very hard".

Democrats are bemoaning a gap in Kavanaugh's official record totaling some 35 months in the White House.

"I can't be silent when someone is nominated to the Supreme Court who would take our equal rights away".

The best for which we can hope is that such nominees manage to eke their way through the gladiatorial process that decades of game-playing has produced - a process that, like the opening of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, is full of sound and fury signifying nothing.
