Establishment Republicans Mugged By Reality

Once again the U.S. Senate has distinguished itself as the world’s greatest deliberative body and vanguard of the Republic by putting high school yearbook committees across the country on notice.

Dennis Miller’s long ago formulation of Congress as a bunch of “mediocre intellects Earl Scheib-ed into looking somewhat consequential” has never been more clearly illustrated than by the current Senate Judiciary Committee.

My question is for establishment Republicans who were bailed out by Brett Kavanaugh and Sen. Lindsey Graham, two establishment Republicans recently mugged by the reality of the Left themselves: Does the Shakespearean farce you witnessed clarify things for you?

Do you now understand what you’re up against?

Will you now turn a deaf ear to the Left’s Siren songs?

Do you now realize that whether it’s the Supreme Court, Russian collusion, or tax cuts, the Left entices you with talk of common ground only to carpet bomb you as soon as you step onto it?

You should find it instructive when three former state attorneys general—Sens. Harris, Blumenthal and Whitehouse—discard the presumptions of the American justice system and thus the rule of law because they can.

Now you should locate your backbones.

You should define the stakes and bring the fight.

Brett Kavanaugh picked up the first round. November 6th is on you.
