“I am Senator Blowhard from Alabama and used to be Attorney General of that great state etc….”
“I am Senator Blowhard # 2 from Wisconsin and we are here at this hearing to protect the constitution”….etc"
“I am Senator Blowhard #3 from South Carolina and I do blow hard but that is not the issue before us ….etc”
I (the author) ask, what is the purpose of an opening statement by each senator at a confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court?
It is not about the senators and how they can pontificate to get more votes and money in the next election!
It is about the prospective judge before them! Get to your biased questions, vote, and complete the process. More quickly please!
Jon Stewart, you are right. This is easy.
This is easy, I should be Jon Stewart
