“So Judge. How do you judge the cases that come before you?”, asks D-NY.
“I judge all cases that come before me on their merit and the rule of law”, replys the esteemed Judge.
“No Judge. How would you really judge the cases that come before you, after all you were appointed by President Trump, you must have some agenda,” asserts the D-NY.
“Senator, as I said, I judge all cases that come before me on their merit and the rule of law”, the esteemed Judge reiterates.
“C’mon now Judge, you must have an agenda somewhere. It’s ok, you can tell us”, D-NY drills, over his glasses with smiling, evil eyes.
“Senator, with all due respect, I have always, and will always judge cases that come before me based strictly on their merit and the rule of law”, says the exasperated judge.”Most of the time I like the outcome, and often I don’t; but I always look to the law for my answers.”
“I can see we are not getting anywhere with your evasive answers, lets move on”, D-NY snorts.
“So Judge. If a case involving abortion were to come before your court, how would you decide?” Asks D-Ca.
“With all due respect Senator, it is against my ethics to answer that question, except to say, I would judge on its merit and the rule of law”, the stalwart Judge answers, going on his eighth hour of continuous questioning.
“So Judge. This immigration ban business will probably come before the High Court. How will you decide?” D-VT asks, yawning and looking at his watch.
“With all due respect, I can’t say how I would decide until I have weighed the merits, and studied the rule of law on the case”, Answers the bleary-eyed, exhausted Judge.
“So Judge. Blah, blah, blah?”, Asks the Senator D-MT.
“With all due respect Senator, I would have to weigh the merits and study the rule of law”, The Judge answers, head bobbing.
“So Judge. Judge? Excuse me, Judge?” Injects the Senator D-CO. “Can someone wake the Judge. I have a very important question for him.”
Shame, shame and double shame on you D-Senators in the Gorsuch Hearings. There is nothing more we can expect from a judge than his blind committment to the rule of law. But that doesn’t fit your agenda does it. Your bias has nothing to do with Merrick Garland, it has nothing to do with President Trump, it has nothing to do with the rule of law, and it actually has nothing to do with Judge Neil Gorsuch. The Democrats are shamelessly bent on stopping everything the new Administration puts forth. Shame, shame, shame on you Schumer, Leahy, Feinstein, Tester, Bennett and the rest of you. You disrespect the country and you disrespect me.
“With all due respect, which isn’t much, You are bringing this great nation down, and, sadly, you don’t care what the consequences are” the author comments.
