    Of course he did, conservatives have no arguments that don't involve false equivalencies.

    It's not like "rude" has really been defined either. We all know how they have a martyrdom complex.

        If they're smart they will.

        Does anyone here really think that the people of West Virginia benefited from whatever votes Senator Byrd made on Supreme Court nominees or social issues like abortion?

        Seniority. That's the only thing that matters, and if the people of a state decide to throw out a long time Senator because of his or her vote on a Supreme Court nominee, well, that's good for the rest of us, but those people are stupid.

        You benefit by your Senator gaining seniority and bringing the money back to the State. That's what it's all about. That's what constitutes about 99% of the real work of Congress, not all this window dressing stuff like the Kavanaugh nomination. I can put up with a lot of bs votes on things like judicial nominees before I'll throw out a Senator with seniority.
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

          Uh if you dont agree with their vote on the SC Justice your ****ed right you should vote them out. This isnt some small time appointment. You dont just ignore that so you can get pork sent your way. That pretty much goes against the entire idea of voting and is exactly why Congress is worthless.

          What a bizarre take.

            How is a judicial nomination BS? They're 1/9 of a branch of the government. Literally hold 3% of governmental power. The only person who holds more is the president.

              It's not a bizarre take. What's bizarre is how absolutely wrapped up you guys get over things like this nominee.

              Even the most polar opposite Supreme Court justices vote with each other what, half the time, two thirds the time? That's because the large volume of the work of the court is deciding cases on admiralty law and variety of other arcane subjects. But you guys get all wrapped up in the media frenzy cases, most of which have literally no impact on you personally.

              Yet, if your Senator can keep your airbase from closing he or she can save thousands of jobs in a city or a state, not only with the base but with all of the jobs created by it.

              Some states, primarily the more rural and financially challenged states, figured this out long ago. Fortunately for us, the rest of you haven't.

                Women, gay, and civil rights are most certainly something to get into a frenzy about. People are more important than money, even if they aren't white males.

                  Who gives a **** about that? They have nothing to do with white males so **** them.

                    This isn't even getting into the ethical questions about this guy and the whole spying thing he was a part of, the buying $200,000 worth of sports tickets which doesn't exactly scream good judgement, anti-labor views, etc. Yeah, the democrats should oppose this guy and ensure that Susan Collins or whoever can't weasel their way out of voting for this guy and make their reelection easier.

                        Who says they're not important?

                        Of course, by all means lobby your senator to support whatever your position on the nominee might be.

                        All I'm saying is that if you have a senator, and that senator has some seniority, you are a fool if you decide to throw them out of office because of their vote on a judicial nominee. I don't care which way they vote. That includes throwing Heitkamp out of office if she refuses to vote in favor of the nominee. Freshmen senators accomplish nothing for you.
