This and that thoughts about the hearings and confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh
One of the advantages of being retired and visiting family in North Carolina is I was able to watch on television most of the Senate Judiciary Committees hearings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh and then watch the final Senate vote for confirmation. Various thoughts on the hearings and confirmation: Would-be presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey asked Judge Kavanaugh since he had admitted he drank on weekends, did Kavanaugh also drink on weekdays? The question easily ranked among the dumbest asked during the hearings, but there were many others. As soon as Booker cast his no vote, he promptly headed to Iowa, the presidential caucuses that will officially open the 2020 presidential campaign. In the past, I have watched Booker throw near hysterical outbursts during committee hearings. President Cory Booker? And this clown called himself Spartacus. Now that is a real scary thought. ++++ And of course, we had the great indictment of Kavanaugh by what was written by classmates in his high school yearbook? How low have we gone in this nation? I soon intend to look at what my classmates wrote in my yearbook. I will do that soon and report back to my readers. ++++While watching the hearings, I turned to one of my sons and told him that Kavanaugh had one important advantage over the Democrats on the committee. The advantage is Kavanaugh is smarter than any of the Democrats who were questioning him. ++++ What about Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California? Is there anyone more pathetic than Feinstein? ++++ Is there a dumber member of the committee than Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii? ++++ Sen.
