Imagine that deep in the bowels of the Senate building, a group of Democrat Senators has ensconced itself quietly around a well-worn, chipped oak table. They speak in whispers, even though they are certain that no one can hear them. And they pledge themselves by a “hypocritic” oath that they will do everything in their power to discredit, disempower and defame the Supreme Court of the United States. Quiet snickers ensue, as someone mutters that they are fortunate no one is studying their ethical records. They stand up, scraping their chairs across the hardwood floor. There are no friendly good-byes as they leave, only the clearing of throats and downcast eyes.
At some level, they know that the Supreme Court Justices are not the people who are threatening our democracy.
The hypocrisy of the Democrat Senators to stand in judgment of the conservative members of the Supreme Court is ludicrous. Questionable if not outright illegal activities by some Senators, including Dick Durbin, head of the Judiciary Committee, Sheldon Whitehouse, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Blumenthal are ignored. In fact, there have been no disciplinary sanctions from the Senate Select Committee on Ethics since 2007. Senators lack any credibility to sit in judgment of the Supreme Court.
