PR: Well, I grew sick and tired of the testimony of James Comey. So I flipped to the livestream of the Gorsuch Confirmation before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
I’m a bit of a political junkie, I confess.
But this first day of Gorsuch’s confirmation is leaving me with the overwhelming urge to bang my head on my desk.
Now, if anything, it gives us a peek into the difference between an impartial judiciary and a very partial United States Senate.
Ideally, the judge is not supposed to begin a case with a predetermined ruling in mind.
Note I say “ideally.” Obama appointees fail that basic test each and every time.
On the other hand, United States Senators are apparently happy to begin this confirmation hearing with a predetermined ruling in mind.
