Not Hearing Gorsuch

“The senator also grew impatient as Gorsuch recycled responses from earlier in the day that he is completely apolitical as a judge and has no place weighing in on political issues. He repeatedly cut the nominee off while building his case that Gorsuch had strong political opinions and ties to partisans, reading from exchanges with high-level Republicans during the administration of George W. Bush that suggested he was a fiercely loyal Republican foot soldier.”

Sen. Al Franken brands Gorsuch a partisan and ‘absurd’

With his lips tightly pressed in a clench
Neil resisted the Al Franken wrench
“Will your politics sway?”
“Oh, I wouldn’t dare say,
“Just wait till I’m on the Big Bench.”
