Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, nominated to become an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court is undergoing Senate hearings consistent with the Constitution’s provision that the Senate will advise and consent to certain presidential actions.
Based on yesterdays hearings, I can only conclude that advise and consent is like truth and beauty–a wonderful concept that is neither clearly defined nor understood and that’s just fine with the upper house in Congress.
The senators talked (and talked and talked) instead of asking questions. It reminded me of the old joke about a blind date:
“Hi, are you Sally?”
“Yes,” she replied.
“Well, enough about you. Let’s talk about me.”
