    Irony, especially in this setting where the bitees will be that slimy weasel Schumer and drunken, Parkinsonian witch Pelosi will make it just that much better. A few others will be added to this pile accordingly (looking at you Dick Durbin, Eric Swallwell and Diane Feinstein).

    I heard what you heard. What he said was very carefully worded.

    Confirm? What fun is that? Let's wait for someone to step forward and say they were brushed in a sexual manner the hallway in the third grade.

    Since you continually choose to be obtuse and sarcastic like a petulant child I will go to the trouble of explaining it to you. I believe the post refers to Mother Teresa's character, not her actual knowledge of US constitutionality. The fact that she is deceased has no bearing on her character. Please do try to keep up.

    Democrats already eating their own and want Feinstein to step down and let a man handle what they are doing , she is starting to look and sound like the crypt keeper at a spry 87.

    They just grilled Judge Barrett three years ago when she was confirmed for the 7th Circuit. Why bother doing it again? Just have the vote.

    "With the exception of appointments to cabinet departments and the Supreme Court, most rejections in modern times have taken place at the committee level, either through inaction, or by a vote not to send the nomination to the Senate floor. Before the 1860s, the Senate considered most nominations without referring them to the committee holding jurisdiction over the vacant post. The Senate rules of 1868, for the first time, provided for the referral of nominations to "appropriate committees." Not until the middle of the twentieth century, however, did those committees routinely require nominees for major positions to appear in person."

    I agree- just do it. Nominate then vote.

    Agree! Those demoncrats sure made Judge Kavanagh's hearing a grueling attack for him and his family. Don't need to see that ever happen again.

    And don't forget that "runt" Nadler. He needs to sit on three law books so he can see over his desk. And then "pencil-neck" Shifty Schiff. Every time he comes on TV with his eye-balls have bugged out, our cat runs and hides behind the couch.

    Women yappers have been protesting that opportunities were denied to them because of their gender. Selecting one candidate from a pool of qualified people because of her gender is exactly what they've been complaining about but this time, in their favor! WTH!

    Ted Cruz has heavy experience in the SCOTUS and knows how the court operates. His stand in support of the Constitution and Bill of Rights is the stuff legends are made of! Ted Cruz is my choice to replace Justice Ginzburg. Unfortunately, Senator Cruz stated that he did not want the job.

    So don’t vet a SCOTUS candidate- that sounds like a brilliant idea, given the ramifications.

    It’s a job interview for one of the most important jobs in the world, it’s supposed to be tough.

    Seriously? THAT tough? When liars are brought in to falsely testify about past, false, allegations? Get serious.

    She’s already been vetted and has a record .
    No need for senate hearings their role is advise and approve, that’s it.

    If they were to bypass the hearings they would likely lose more R votes which they can't afford.

    If it is Barrett, she has been vetted.

    Barrett was nominated to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by President Donald Trump on May 8, 2017 and confirmed by the Senate on October 31, 2017. That public confirmation hearing was a pathetic circus where she was excoriated for being a Catholic and probably because she disagrees with murdering unborn children.

    If it is Lagoa she was also vetted and confirmed to United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit by a vote of 80-15. But clearly she is not qualified to serve on the Supreme court because she is not an atheist and has been praised by Evangelicals.

    We need another public high tech lynching of a well qualified Supreme Court justice like we need a hole in the head.

    It isn't a job interview, it is a freaking political witch hunt. A blind person could see that.

    Exactly. There is no requirement for a hearing. The senate's only requirement is to evaluate the nominee and then confirm or not confirm. The form that evaluation takes is up to the senate, but there is no requirement for a judicial committee hearing and the circus that comes with it.
