(Newser) – Politicians on both sides of the aisle have weighed in on Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's pick to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Now publication editorial boards are having their say, variously painting the conservative judge, who serves on the federal appeals court for the District of Columbia, as "a worthy pick" and a threat to liberal democracy. A roundup of opinions:

  • New York Times: "Senate Democrats need to use the confirmation process to explain to Americans how their Constitution is about to be hijacked by a small group of conservative radicals well funded by ideological and corporate interests, and what that means in terms of the rights they will lose and the laws that will be invalidated over the next several decades."
