Al Franken overturns Judge Gorsuch’s opinion using power of absurdity vested in him by SNL

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 03/21/2017 - 21:57

**Written by Doug Powers

At Tuesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing for Neil Gorsuch, Sen. Al Franken proved that he’s good enough, smart enough, and doggone it he’s going to serve as the inspiration for a progressive court-of-hypothetical-appeals justice in an SNL skit someday:

He relentlessly sparred with Gorsuch about the nominee’s dissent in the case of a trucking company employee who was fired after abandoning his cargo when no one came to help him during a breakdown, and he was stuck for hours in subzero temperatures. Gorsuch came down on the side of the company.

“I had a career in identifying absurdity, and I know it when I see it,” said Franken, a former “Saturday Night Live” performer and writer. “And it makes me question your judgment.”

Franken not only had a career identifying absurdity but currently serves as an example of it. Case in point: Al Franken is on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Here’s the video. At issue is Gorsuch’s ruling at what’s known as the “frozen trucker” case.

On Monday, Franken said this in reference to Antonin Scalia:

Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) lamented that Scalia’s “rigid” ideology has “infected the bench”: “While no one can dispute (his) love of the Constitution, the document he revered looks very different from the one that I have sworn to support and defend.”

I don’t doubt it.

Let’s adjourn with this:

Chuck Schumer offers a clue how he thinks Dem attempts to trip up Gorsuch are going; Update: Elizabeth Warren too

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 03/21/2017 - 15:57

How are Senate Judicial Committee Democrat attempts to prove that Neil Gorsuch isn’t fit to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court going? Allow Chuck Schumer to provide a big clue:

null

When that doesn’t happen, “Operation: Plant a bottle of Stoli in Gorsuch’s briefcase” is a GO!

We’ll know it went really bad if Dems pull the fire alarm just before the vote is taken next month.

Update:

Dances With Identity Theft can be counted among Dems who want to put the brakes on the Gorsuch hearing:

null

But presidential aspirations can’t.
