Sasse is a microcosm of the rumblings popping out of Senate Republicans for days. Lots of them voted to substantiate Decide Jackson up to now. They will’t consider a very good motive to not vote for her for the Supreme Court docket, in order that they both make up a pretend motive like she is gentle on baby predators or they do what Sasse did and say one thing imprecise like “judicial philosophy,” shrug, and vote no.
Republicans stay in a world the place they, like Sasse, faux to be upset by both what Brett Kavanaugh is accused of doing or the way in which he was “handled” at his affirmation listening to, however it doesn’t matter what the phrases say, the vote is identical.
Sasse is a graduate of the Susan Collins Faculty For Wayward Boys And Pretend Moderates.
Sen. Sasse will make statements that sound reasonable, however like Collins, he’ll vote straight down the road with the remainder of his get together.
Nobody needs to be suckered by Sasse as a result of his actions undoubtedly communicate louder than his phrases.
