I don’t know what’s going on, but the Republicans seem to have found the testicular fortitude to speak the truth and stand up to the scheming Democrats for once. Sen. John Kennedy’s (R-La.) scathing remarks will surely come in as the second most memorable speech of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation process — second to the unleashing of Lindsey “The Kraken” Graham. Calling the Senate hearing an “intergalactic freak show,” Sen. Kennedy won my heart forever.
Starting at the 4:00 mark (video below) Kennedy admonishes: “To the person who leaked Dr. Ford’s letter, to the person who breached Dr. Ford’s anonymity, and to the person who did not tell her she could have avoided this by testifying privately in her home in California, you know who you are. You should bow your head in shame, in my opinion, and you should hide your head in a bag every day for the rest of your natural life.” His remarks were clearly directed at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), whose shenanigans were exposed at the hearings.
As if that wasn’t epic enough, he then went on to turn his remarks into a short but effective sermon. “I don’t know if you believe in God or read the Bible,” he continued, “but there’s wisdom in a passage whether you read the Bible or believe in God or not, and I’d refer you to Matthew 16:26: ‘For what is a person profited if he gains the whole world and he loses his soul?'”
Strangely enough, right before his remarks, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) walked out of the room, probably summoned to the antechamber by his true masters, the Democrats, who were cloistered and plotting to get him to crumble. As usual, he did and agreed to their FBI sham investigation. It’s too bad he didn’t stick around to hear Sen. Kennedy’s statements, because his own lack of courage and wishy-washy behavior needed that tongue-lashing. Flake just wants to be liked by the screeching harridans in the lobby. But in doing so, he’s risking throwing away a 250-year-old republic built on justice for all. Oh well. As long as good ol’ Jeff gets voted “Most Liked” this year in the Senate inner circle, that’s all that matters.
Why does it seem to me that the Republicans are always the only adults in the room? Every time I heard any of them speak, their comments were based on law, facts, and the presumption of innocence. Whenever a Democrat spoke, it was like listening to my seventh-grader opining on her feelings about my unfairness because I said “no” to something.
“Democrats are not being heard,” said Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), after rage-stomping out of the Senate meeting today in the middle of the chairman’s remarks. Of course, she headed for the nearest bank of microphones with her two minions in tow. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been watching this farce for two days, listening to nothing else but Democrats talking and talking about their feelings. None of them brought forward any useful facts. None of them cared about the presumption of innocence. (However, they all cared a great deal about “Squee’s” “ffff-bombs” and fart jokes, exactly like my seventh-grader’s class would.)
It’s not much consolation that in the last days of America the GOP finally found their tongues, but it has been a long time coming. Maybe they realize that if they don’t do something about the hostile coup attempt, the cold war we’ve been in for the last few years could degenerate into a hot one. If the protesters outside Lindsey Graham’s house manage to knock down his door, I have no doubt a hot war is what they intend. And instead of trying to calm the waters and cool passions, the Democrats are fanning the flames.
It makes me wonder what the intrigue was like before Rome started burning. I bet it was just as ridiculous.
