    You think any senator from Texas who rises to the position of Majority Leader (as Cornyn may do) is in jeopardy of losing his seat if he holds no hearings on the next Democrat's nominations to the high court? They'll have his mug on their currency when they finally secede.

    Except for the fact that he was choosen for his ideology rather than his qualifications and that whole perjury thing sure.

    No perjury, but his qualifications are impeccable. Even the Democrats prior to Trump though so.

    After all, with over 300 opinions as a sitting judge, one would think you could come up with a jurisprudence reason why he is not qualified.

    What does that have to do with Me, other conservatives; more importantly, with the nominee?

    Everything. When conservatives whine about lack of civility...they tend to forget how they have fostered and rewarded exactly that behavior.

    Okay, cite specifically how I have fostered and rewarded that kind of behavior. Assuming of course, that simple disagreement on issues constitute whining.

    Then cite the whining and incivility of the nominee.

    I am not talking about you specifically or the nominee. But I am teaming about the President who condemned rude behavior yet engages in it daily and the conservatives who support it.

    Have you condemned rude behavior from the left? There is a veritable smorgasbord of incivility arising from that quarter.

    You mean like antifa’s behavior or harassment of conservative speakers in colleges? Yes.

    Have you condemned rude behavior from the right?
