PHOTO: Merrick Garland’s High School Yearbook Entry Cites ‘Debate,’ ‘Political Forum Club,’ ‘National Merit Semi-Finalist’

Well well.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook has been a major source of concern since multiple allegations of sexual assault have been lodged against the judge. Kavanaugh’s yearbook entry lists achievements like “Devil’s triangle,” “Renate Alumnius,” “boofing,” “100 keg club,” and others.

Enter Judge Merrick Garland, former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee whom Republicans refused to meet with and who, unlike Kavanaugh, never got a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senate Republicans instead held a seat open on the nation’s highest court for over a year. Many Americans haven’t forgotten the seat stolen from Garland (a seat that ultimately was filled by Justice Neil Gorsuch last year.)

As a result, they’re now sharing Garland’s recently-resurfaced yearbook entry lists achievements like:

  • Debate
  • National Forensic Degree of Distinction
  • Political Forum Club
  • National Merit Semifinalist
  • National Honor Society
  • Harvard Alumni Book Award

…and more. It’s a stark reminder of what could’ve been.

In fact, compared to the other students attending Garland’s school, it appears he was a legend at extracurricular activities in addition to being a fine actor.

Kavanaugh’s yearbook entry, however, could not be more different.

And people are starting to notice.

While Garland’s yearbook entry is a source of pride, Kavanaugh’s was not as well-received.
