During Amy Coney Barrett hearings to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg as Supreme Court Justice, not every Democrat was necessarily respectful of Justice Barrett, reports Rich Lowery in NRO.
You can always count on Sen. Mazie Hirono to hit rock bottom, as she did by asking Barrett if she had ever sexually assaulted or harassed anyone.
The viral moment of the day’s proceedings was Judge Barrett showing Senator Cornyn her empty notepad, revealing that she was answering detailed legal questions for hours without notes.
Peachy Keenan, “in her typically zesty prose” writes in American Mind on just what it is about Amy that drives people mad:
“I’m not that much younger than ACB, and I have a large-ish family, but I can’t help feeling deep shame when I read her resume. I knew a few girls like Amy Coney in high school and at college, but not that many, and not well. This was because they were in the library studying for some future high-flying profession while I was “studying” to be a dilettante writer, maybe even the next Dorothy Parker, I would think, while standing in line at the keg. See? I paid my dues, too!
The Amy Coneys of the world inspire great awe and not a little terror in me because they were able to focus on a few clear goals right away. Early in life, probably in preschool, they figured what they wanted to do, worked super hard, and…actually achieved all their goals.”
