Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing today was blah, blah, (try to stay awake), (don’t let anyone know you’re snoozing), (Dem Senators made to look foolish), (trite platitudes repeated endlessly on media).

You still with me.

Sure, there were some real moments, but they were entirely focused on Democrat Senators who were made to look like fools.

Like when Dick Durbin tried to tag Neil (may I call him Neil?) with some obviously nonsense, political statement from a former female law student of his about asking women during job interviews about plans to get pregnant. Durbin still is stammering “What hit me, what hit me?

No one laid a glove on Gorsuch. Seriously, the questioning was pathetic. Sheldon Whitehouse had trouble framing a question.

Al Franken, who never is the adult in any room, wasn’t any better:

Through it all, Democrats repeatedly didn’t like the answers and would cut off Gorsuch, sometimes mid-sentence, like at the end of the Franken clip above.

Nevertheless, he persisted.

And barring the equivalent of a meteor hitting, you can say hello to Mr. Justice Neil Gorsuch.
