IN MY GRANDPARENTS’ DAY

Gorsuch would have gotten the hook already a while ago.

But I guess the vaudeville circuit of 1920 was a more brutally honest place than the GOP-led US government of today.

In any case, his act has worn very thin.

GORSUCH REACHED FOR THAT ONE, TOO

Can’t he even be a little original in his deflections and parrying?

Didn’t Tom Price recently pull this stunt with Elizabeth Warren?

You know, when he “took offense” when she confronted him with evidence of his insider stock-trading?

Gorsuch, confronted with the Supreme Court’s overturning of his starkly mingy comprehension of what educational facilities for children with disabilities means, gets “offended,” goes to the straw-man tactic of claiming Senator Durbin is making an attack on his regard for children.

Anything to change the subject from his actual rulings.

CHERISHED MOMENTS

One of my favorite incidents in Gorsuch’s performance-art spectacle was his pained expression when Sen. Franken told him how full of crap he is –I mean, how absurdly sophistic was  his dissent judgment against the freezing-to-death truck driver.

I mean, he was just so po-faced, so distressed that any decision he might have handed down could have made anyone unhappy.

GORSUCH NEVER HAD MUCH BELIEF IN DEMOCRACY

Columbia classmate Jordan Kushner tells Democracy Now! what Gorsuch was like as an undergraduate.

A lot more edifying and pertinent than the pee jokes and such with which the GOP has made a mockery of these “confirmation hearings.”

NO, DIANNE FEINSTEIN

You don’t let Gorsuch off the hook. If your susceptibility to his masculine charms so disables you, we’d prefer that you not show up for these “confirmation hearings,” rather than allow their GOP-engineered descent into farce.

ARE WE GOING TO REPLAY THE 1980s?

As Russia cuts its military budget, Trump wants a supersized increase in ours, despite the fact that it is already gargantuan, an increase that will come at the expense of every program we have created to sustain and support American life.

Danielle Ryan at Salon tries to bring America into reality mode.

DECISIVE ACTION, DEMS?

Better still, why don’t the Democrats vacate the hearings at this point, in view of Gorsuch’s refusal to cooperate with the confirmation process. Gorsuch’s “confirmation hearings” are a complete charade, and the Dems are looking more and more foolish and impotent for enabling them.

HELPFUL HINTS

Since Gorsuch refuses to divulge any information about his judicial beliefs and simply stonewalls and deflects any scrutiny, the Democrats must today start informing him and the American public exactly what those judicial beliefs are, by confronting him with the legacy of his judicial decisions.

Have they heard of the phrases,”I find that hard to believe. You are a forty-nine-year man. . . surely you have some thoughts on this matter. . . OK, you don’t want to answer these essential questions; therefore I will not be able to even consider a vote for your confirmation.”

EXACTLY HOW MANY

questions did Gorsuch refuse to answer?

BRING IN GORSUCH’S STUDENT TO TESTIFY

Gorsuch mounts elaborate denial of his ex-student’s charges.

update: Gorsuch is plying the same deflect-dodge GOP strategy.

He is dissing the Democrats on the Committee as well as the judicial confirmation process itself.

FILIBUSTER!
