5

Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley took to the Senate floor Tuesday evening just after 7 pm. He hasn’t stepped off it since. Merkley pledged to “talk as long as I’m able” to protest the Republican nominee for Supreme Court Justice, Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch is set to take over the late Antonin Scalia. but Democrats are looking to put a stop to his confirmation as a way to avenge the Republicans block of President Obama’s pick, Merrick Garland.

    Just curious, how does me manage for so long without the use of a restroom!

  2. After Senator McConnell’s skullduggery against well-qualified Judge Garland and now the Democrats’ childish (and ineffective) vengefulness against well-qualified Judge Gorsuch is it any wonder that average citizens hold politicians in such contempt?
