When used as an adjective, the word ‘naught’ has these meanings …
- lost; ruined.
- Archaic. worthless; useless.
- Obsolete. morally bad; wicked.
I played a little fast and loose with Brett Kavanaugh’s name for the title of this blog post because he personifies that word’s definition now. His Supreme Court nomination appears to be lost and ruined. He will soon be viewed as worthless and useless to the conservative Republican’s cause. And if the accusations are true, he is morally bad and wicked, or at least was at one time. But that is not the problem I have with the Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS nomination.
