Skip to comments.Dem Uses Kavanaugh Hearing to Jockey for Position in 2020 [semi-satire]
Posted on 09/08/2018 1:52:59 AM PDT by John Semmens
Fresh from his preposterous antics in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court in which he characterized himself as a "Spartacus fighting against tyranny," Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) brushed aside Wall Street Journal reporter Byron Tau's attempt to ask him a question about it, asserting that "it is unconstitutional for anyone to question me about anything I said in Congress in any other place."
Booker's heroic moment came when he made a show of releasing what he called "wrongly classified documents that Republicans are trying to hide from the American people. I know that my violation of the rules could lead to my expulsion from the Senate, but the stakes are higher than my seat. Even if I am expelled, my fight for the truth will go on to the 2020 presidential election where my selfless sacrifice will demonstrate that I am the essential man needed to carry on the social revolution begun by former President Obama."
One flaw in Booker's grandiose plans, though, was the fact that the so-called "hidden documents" had previously been cleared for release by the Committee's Republican majority prior to his stunt. Another flaw is that the documents that Booker accused the GOP of trying to hide actually confirm that Kavanaugh voiced opposition to racial profiling in the memos Booker held in his hand as he ranted against the Judge. Perhaps Tau's knowledge of these facts may have been the main source of the Senator's post-hearing snit.
Meanwhile, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif) mocked Judge Kavanaugh for carrying a copy of the Constitution in his pocket "as if it is some sort of bible. It's only wordsvery old words. I find it scary that someone who aspires to join the Supreme Court would need such a crutch. I think we need Justices who are creative and open to new ideas if we hope to transform our form of government to keep pace with changing times."

Cory Hooker - “ ...I am the essential man needed to carry on the social revolution begun by former President Obama.”
Cory is a legend in his own mind. What a moron.
Beyond satire, in my opinion, Harris does not regard the Bible highly either, but would use a line or two of either if she thinks it suits her purposes. Harris is just a more in-your-face version of other less outspoken Dems with the same ideology.
