A popular meme going around in conservative circles gloats, “Every time he makes a ruling for the next 40 years, [Justice Kavanaugh] thinks about how Democrats tried to ruin his life with lies and deceit [sic].” The implication is that Kavanaugh will remember his treatment at the hands of Senate Democrats and will let personal emotions affect his decisions.
