Political question

I try not to get political here. That said, I think the Supreme Court confirmation process is interesting- it’s history. Okay, I’m a nerd. Anyway, my question: we outlaw torture, right?

Well then why are we forcing these nominees to sit through a whole day of speeches from a group of windbag Senators? I thought the whole point of the confirmation process was to learn about the nominees, not to listen to the senators regurgitate the party line.

If the idea is to submit them to the feats of strength, well it’s too late. Festivus was last month.
