So. The hearings of the Democrats versus Trump. Any trick. Any sneering innuendo. Any vile trick will do to try to upset Judge Kavanaugh.

My favorites are the idiotic sniping by our California Sen. "Kamala" Harris.

She’s trying to "trap" Judge K. into saying he either met or did not meet with some unnamed person about the Mueller inquiry into Russian witchcraft. There’s no point to the questions and no point is ever dragged forth, except that Kamala Harris is a fool. Then there’s Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., who wants to show that he’s even more of a fool than our Sen. Harris.

He’s got some public papers which he’s trying to show are secret and he’s the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by revealing papers that are already public.

How stupid can you get, senator? There’s no "there" there and you’re just a big dope.

It all reminds me of when I was 9 years old and we lived on the other side of a dense stand of maple trees in Maryland. I could only find my way home by listening for my mother watching the Army-McCarthy hearings, which she did nonstop. She was anti-Communist to say the least. But she was deeply uneasy about McCarthy.

She even taught me to say my Pop was a "statistician" rather than an economist because "economist" out of my young lips might sound like "Communist." 

But those hearings, even with the wicked little dwarf, Roy Cohn, and the cunning little magician, Joseph Welch, were Shakespeare compared with the Kavanaugh hearings.

Today’s hearings are like rap compared with Mozart if we contrast them with the McCarthy hearings.

Well, Kamala Harris never really got to any kind of point. Cory Booker came across as a bully and a fool. But that’s their right as senators.

Still, it’s sad that we as a people aren’t prostrate with gratitude that we have a man as brilliant and learned and fine as Judge Kavanaugh who will take this kind of nonsense day after day for a basically minimum wage job.

It’s an act of pure altruism and patriotism as far as I can tell.

God bless you, Judge. And God bless Mr. Trump for naming such a fine man to the Supreme Court,  so writes Ben Stein in The American Spectator.
