7. This Process Is So Bogus And All For Show.....

Grassley made some comment earlier this a.m. about those protesters yelling out to disrupt the proceedings are just detracting from the American People getting to make their own decisions on Kavanaugh.

The American People have no voice in this decision. It's a done deed.

The Repugs have the votes to confirm this guy and will vote in mass to do just that. Somebody made the comment yesterday that the Dems have made up their mind and they will vote no on his confirmation. He eluded to obstruction by the Dems. Well if it's obstruction by the Dems to vote 'no' in mass. What is it when the Repugs vote in mass to confirm?

Kavanaugh is thrown softball questions by the Repugs - that he most likely had in advance to prepare a good response to. Any question that the Dems ask him that is pointed and would show us the real Kavanaugh - he responds with the weasel words that their question is a 'hypothetical'.

There has to be a better way of picking judges that is non-political and done by the people.

Right now anytime the Dems do anything related to nominations and confirmations of judges - it's political.

When the Repugs do it - they say they are doing the work of the American People.

All judges are political - from the ground on up to SCOTUS. Somehow that political aspect needs to be taken out of the equation.
