    It took three months before the Democrats admitted that the guy was nominated. They refused to meet with him for three months. Senate Democrats to end boycott, plan to meet with Kavanaugh later this month

    The old papers is just the next excuse. Here is the secret. If you want the papers you ask for them at the beginning of the process. Not three months later.

    Filibusters should be illegal. Refusing to even allow a vote is undemocratic and cowardly. It was stupid and wrong when Republicans did it, it’s stupid and wrong when Democrats do it.

    Do you not understand the difference between an "election" and the confirmation of a nomination?

    Do some simple research before shooting off your yap.

    Doesn't it suck that Harry Reid opened the door to this? Many said at the time that this would happen, and now it is.

    This is just not true at all. Justice Clarence Thomas was confirmed with just 52 votes. A majority of the Senate is and has been the Constitutional requirement.
