The U.S. Senate is getting as bad as British Parliament! When I have had the opportunity to see the British Parliament in action I have been appalled at the lack of decorum that is demonstrated by the members. Shouting and interrupting and basically behaving like rowdy schoolchildren, it seemed to be a miracle that they ever got anything done. Well, today during the first day of hearings for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court I saw even worse behavior by our elected representatives. Let me be specific about that: by our elected Democratic senators.
Repeatedly interrupting the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee during his opening remarks, Kamala Harris (who wants to run for President) was the epitome of a shrill, attention-seeking, power-mad politician whose parents never taught her common courtesy. She was shamelessly pandering for the cameras and was an embarrassment to women, Democrats and just plain human beings. And she wasn’t the only one: just about every time Democratic Senators got the microphone they launched into vitriolic diatribes that produced poisonous clouds of hot air that I swear were almost visible in the room.
Furthermore, I think it is despicable that each of the Democratic members of the committee said they had already decided to vote against the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh. If they have already made up their minds, why are they pushing for the release of more documents that they won’t read because they’ve already made up their minds? Gee, is it another ploy to delay the process? How stupid do they think we are?
As the days of the confirmation hearing play out, pay attention to the words and actions of the members of the Judiciary Committee. And then judge them by their actions and words. These people are swamp-dwellers and they clearly demonstrate what is wrong with this country today. by Linda Sauer
