But look across the aisle and all you see are old people. The Democratic Party Caucus is God's waiting room, as the judiciary hearing on Neil Gorsuch.
Dianne Feinstein, 83, tried to get Gorsuch and embarrassed herself:
GORSUCH: Senator, I know a case or two has been mentioned yesterday. Respectfully, I’d suggest that does not represent the body of my work. I’ve written two thousand — I’ve participate in 2,700 opinions over ten and a half years. And if you want cases where I’ve ruled for “the little guy,” as well as “the big guy,” there are plenty of those, Senator. The Ute Indian tribe —
FEINSTEIN: Would you be willing to submit some of them? It’s hard to read 2,700 cases — [crosstalk]
GORSUCH: Oh, I’ll name a bunch them right now. [crosstalk] I’m sorry, Senator, of course. Ute 5 and 6. Fletcher. The Rocky Flats case, which vindicated the rights of people who had been subject to pollution from large companies in Colorado — uranium pollution. I’d point you to the Magnesium case, similar pollution case in the Salt Lake City area. Colorado’s effort with renewable energy; upheld that. Orr v City of Albuquerque, involving pregnancy discrimination in a police department in Albuquerque. WD Sports, a discrimination claim. Casey, Energy West, Crane, Simpson v CU, involving young women who had been harassed by the football team. AM, Browder, Sutton — I can give you a long, long list.
FEINSTEIN: That’s wonderful. We’ll find them, and we’ll read them.
GORSUCH: And Senator, the bottom line, I think is, is I’d like to convey to you from the bottom of my heart is that I’m a fair judge. And I think if you ask people in the Tenth Circuit, “Is he a fair judge?” you’re going to get the answer that you got yesterday from both Senator Bennet and Senator Gardener and from General Katyal, and the same answer you got from Senator Allard and Senator Salazar ten years ago. And Senator, I can’t guarantee you more than that — but I can promise you absolutely nothing less.The only question is did her staff not do its homework or did she sleep through their briefing?
Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, brought up a Fake News story from NPR that falsely accused Gorsuch of implying women manipulate maternity benefits.
From Legal Insurrection:
“Do you believe that there are ever situations where the cost of maternity leave to an employer can justify an employer asking only female applicants and not male applicants about family plans?” Sen. Durbin asked.
To which Gorsuch sternly replied, “those are not my words and I would never had said them.”
“I didn’t say that,” said Durbin, “I asked you if you agreed with this statement.”
“And I’m telling you I don’t,” Gorsuch scowled.This is the best the 48 members of the Democratic Party Caucus.
Those are its sluggers.
I am not impressed.
The dimwits keep opposing everything and anything. By not choosing their battles carefully, they come off as a bunch of poor losers, and if there is anything Americans hate, it is a loser.
To be sure, they have the votes to slow Republican action. But Democrats are setting themselves up for what could be historic -- big losses in a mid-term election by the party out of power!
