    I see that Penny is ignoring what Senator Reid did with Senate rules, that makes her a flaming hypocrite.

    Funny to see that the planned (probably paid) protesters crashing the hearings and the leftists misbehaving in the chamber make clear they have no respect for the Confirmation hearing process.

    From your link you didn't read:

    "Indeed, McConnell’s predecessor as Senate majority leader Harry Reid, now retired, took the first step down the “nuclear” road by lowering the threshold for other nominees in 2013 – a controversial move Republicans frequently brought up on the road to Thursday’s proceedings."

    Gee you that partisan, to be that stupid?

    You make no case that it was illegal at all, neither does Chuck Schumer thinks it is illegal:

    “It doesn’t have to be this way,” Schumer said. “The answer is not to change the rules, it’s to change the nominee.”

    How long ago was Kavanaugh nominated?

    There are plenty of information on his views available, Wikipedia

    Snicker...……….

    Of course not, because that would be a losing proposition for them. The LAST thing they want is a discussion of his actual merits to be a SC Justice. Quite frankly, I don't think they understand the Constitution well enough to ask semi-intelligent questions of him. Better from their perspective to rant and rave incoherently. At least that way they're pumping up their new base that demands such ranting and raving on a regular basis.

    They thought they had it. That's what their hatred of Trump is all about.

    Yup. All they needed was Garland on SCOTUS. No guns, no Freedoms, open borders. Soros gets to turn us into another festering EU Shit hole. Our JakeStarkey had his Hillary SS uniform and was gleefully talking about rounding up Americans for "Sedition" which was defined as just not voting Hillary

    They were so so so close.
