Skip the hearings, go straight to a confirmation vote!
At the very least Mitch needs to tell the assembled Senate that all queries and discussions with Judge Barrett will be polite and respectful otherwise the confirmation vote will be held immediately!

Ordinarily I would agree with you, but I say let the democrats be vicious towards her. Then they can try to defend their claim as the party that supports women while campaigning.

This is from the “tolerant” left. Leftist are the biggest racists, bigots and xenophobes a person could ever meet.

How terrible to have a Christian on the Supreme Court. What is the US coming too. Next thing you know we will be one nation under God. I wish.

Amy is asked to hold up her notes she is using to answer the questions today.

She holds up a blank pad of paper.

I've been watching in the background of work the last couple days. She has been on point and poised throughout, unflappable and articulate. Really impressive showing. Her handling of Klobuchar was excellent along with several others. News is showing some of the more outrageous soundbites but the other back and forths too long for a newsbyte have been more impressive IMO.

Webster’s dictionary actually changed the definition of the word “preference” to be considered as offensive, as a direct response to yesterday’s attacks on ACB.

The extent to which the left will go to force their will is absolutely amazing.

On a related topic, she’s extremely impressive. Her demeanor, her responses, and her basic judicial philosophy are all I could have hoped for in a SCOTUS nominee.

I agree. Even if I did not agree with her philosophy (and I do), I think her demeanor and general responses would convince me she should be confirmed.
