Senator Ben Sasse at the Judge Kavanaugh confirmation hearing

Sen. Ben Sasse’s School House Rock Speech

“It’s predictable that every confirmation hearing now is going to be an overblown, politicized circus and it’s because we’ve accepted a new theory about how our three branches of government should work, and in particular how the Judiciary should work.
