I wonder how quickly Feinstein will start screeding about ACB's Catholic faith? After all, we know that religious litmus tests are illegal per the Constitution... but only when applied to liberals.

Last I heard Schumer was trying to pull a fast one by not letting any D's go to the hearing when a vote to send to the full senate happens.  Thus denying a quorum.  If it was me, I'd just shut the hearing down tomorrow and tell the Senate leader to have the Senate vote now.  There are enough R's for a quorum.

Apparently she's not using any reference notes for the hearing. That's some impressive confidence.

Yep. He's screeching about that. And there are ways for the Republicans to maneuver around that. Easiest way, I believe, is for Mitch McConnell to pose a motion on the floor to pull the nomination to the full Senate, which the Dems should not be able to block (thank you, Harry Reid, who gave us the gift that keeps on giving).

Today's looking pretty fun, too. From the quotes in this article she's really doing well holding her own against some of the absolute crap being slung her way...

You know this one made the Dems' heads throb....

Feinstein asks Barrett on Obergefell, which granted same-sex couples the right to marry.

She asks if she agrees with Justice Scalia's view that the U.S. Constitution does not afford a right to marry for same-sex couples.

Barrett says just because Scalia afforded a view, it does not mean if it's hers. She says she isn't going to put forward an opinion.

She cites "The Ginsburg Rule" -- "no hints, no previews, no forecasts."

The thing I find most notable about ACB's answers today is that the GOP traded a hundred thousand American lives for her seat on the court, and there are thousands of Americans walking around healthy right now who will be sick and dead by year's end.

That was a tweet from Debra J. Saunders.

Saunders is fairly conservative, definitely not a screeching, left-leaning panic monkey.

Well, you knew they'd get to the "sexual predator" phase eventually. Time for the junior high yearbook to be submitted.
