That’s Why They Call Them “Confirmation” Hearings

All that vapid testimony from the 13 judiciary committee members yesterday was a grim reminder of what has become of rhetoric and public discourse in modern America. Even knowing the cameras are rolling and people are taking notes, many Senators (not all Democrats) demonstrated their utter ineptitude at expository speech and their reprehensible misunderstanding of the Constitutional function of the courts.

Perhaps they are called “confirmation” hearings because they confirm for us the necessity of a judicial oligarchy. What would happen if these Senators actually governed the country? The mind reels.
