I have, by no means, watched the hearings wall to wall but I did catch a nice sized bite of this morning's Lindsey Graham questioning.

It was historic.

Graham started out with a series of questions which even I found to be intrusive and offensive. Graham grilled Brown in a very personal way about issues that, it seemed to me, were none of his business. My first impression was the Judge Brown was offended. She seemed to have been taken aback. Still, Graham continued, intensifying his attack.

About 5 or 6 of these questions in, a light went on for me. It didn't seem to have with the Judge, though.

Graham was asking exactly the same questions, word for word, the same vile, intrusive, offensive, inappropriate questions that Senate Dems asked, with no shame, of Amy Coney Barrett during her hearings.

Eventually, Graham explained what he was doing, and why. During this commentary, Graham became extremely animated and channeled our very own po in the way I do from time to time, and actually used the word...in a US Senate committee room!, effin, hence the word, "Effin" in the title of this post.


One other note. I watched the ACB hearings carefully. When she was asked these questions, she answered articulately, with grace and patience. On the other hand, KBJ stuttered and stammered and made little sense. Barrett never seemed to be startled nor offended by the questioning. She spoke with clarity and care.

Jackson seemed startled. I can't help but suspect that, as a woman of color, she was taken aback. As a woman of color, my sense is that she probably has always been treated with such deference that she'd never had to deal with a difficult question, certainly not posed in a brusque manner...

...and she spoke haltingly and stammered.


My sense is that KBJ will be confirmed...

...but she ain't no ACB in intellect nor character.

    Effin' Lindsey Graham already voted for her appointment to the federal appeals court. Now all of a sudden he has a problem with appointing her to the Supreme Court.

    We've seen this sort of about face from Lindsey Graham on other issues. He has got to be the most hypocritical Senator to ever serve in Washington. What a dick.

    Yeah, Lindsey Graham must unsettle your side even more than Joe Manchin. He's one of a small handful of genuinely enigmatic Senators. pb loves everything that disrupts the Swamp.

    To be fair, confirming a nominee to a seat on the Supreme Court should demand a higher standard than confirming a nominee to lower courts.

    pb has been on Manchin watch since KBJ was nominated. He hasn't spoken yet...at least to declare how he'll vote.

    It's likely that Manchin will vote to confirm. It's also likely that Graham will vote to confirm.

    I'd make it 10-1 that KBJ is confirmed but the Fat Lady ain't sung, yet.

    According to CNN, GOP opposition to KBJ is tightening. (See link)

    pb has been saying that he's on a Joe Manchin watch. Nuthin to report.

    pb still thinks it's likely that KBJ will be confirmed but the fat lady has not sung. And, it may take a tie breaker vote from Kammy.
