After Kavanaugh

The Kavanaugh confirmation fight will be remembered as the moment when everything changed.

In 1856, a congressman from South Carolina clubbed a senator from Massachusetts into bloody unconsciousness on the floor of the Senate. This will be like that.


Update: The state represented by Preston Brooks, who assailed Charles Sumner, was South Carolina, not Kentucky.
