1. Kick!

It's worth the 4 & half minutes to watch dems kick ass. The GOP doesn't know what hit them. Booker was awesome! Blumenthal was solid backup. This was no butter knife.

The Republicans are spineless twits covering their asses to get key decisions overturned that will turn back the clock on progress. THEY are the amoral ones, not the Democrats.

5. Sure, so a Senate rule (of order) is more important

than letting the public know the truth.

Or, IOW, the rule can be used to cover up lies.

Nice going, Republicans!

7. Go Senator Booker expose expose expose their subterfuge.

Finally demonstrated backbone from Democrats standing up against this president and his party who will say and do anything to accomplishes their stacking of the SCOTUS. Steal a seat from Obama, hide evidence of the long term agenda of Kavanaugh and the Federalist Society and Trump's dream to be a king.

9. This is a must-see video! Senator Booker is stellar and outstanding.

And so are the other Democratic Senators who stand with him.

I have never been prouder to be a Democrat than I am today.

10. Corey made me so proud!

Yeah John (my senator), you insufferable and arrogant asshole - put up or shut up. Your faux indignation is just that - FAUX! Hey John, you racist fukker, how does it feel to have a proud SMART black man stand up to your empty threats?

For me, it's a toss-up which current TX senator is the most obnoxious.

His colleagues as well. Thank you all for standing up to this travesty that started when Judge Garland was denied a hearing and a vote.

37. Call your faves and say thank you!

Google their websites and those will have contact info. I found it really easy to get through at their REGIONAL OFFICES. I called and weighed in with Cory Bookerís Camden, New Jersey office. Got right through.

14. This is what comes from Republicans treating the aisle in the Senate like the Berlin Wall

They never see what's on the other side, have little idea about how the people there think, and are taken by surprise when they find that not everyone on the other side trembles in fear every time they yell, "BOO!"

We citizens do have a right to see those documents, as do all Senators before deciding whether to confirm Kavanaugh to a lifetime post. Whether, as in IF, as in NOT.

ps if the NAZIS come after Booker and the others, we do need to All be in the streets and make it clear what we are willing to do

Oh, do you all remember the D SC nominee that knowingly hid 90% of his or her record and still got a hearing and was confirmed?

31. That's the kind of guys I've been longing to see.

Guess they must have traded in the feather dusters they all seem to want to take to gunfights, and brought AR15s and flame throwers instead.

THATíS how you fight a republi-CON.

And I loved how others on that side had his back. Youíll have to throw us all out of the Senate. Just try it. In this election year? When youíre so sure youíll still hold the Senate? I doubt thatíll be a secure bet if you try that, GOP. It will likely mobilize Democrats to crawl over broken glass and hot coals to make it to the polls.

I hope TO DEAR GOD that this means Democrats have finally found their backbones!

We should call our reps - AND Cory Bookerís office, AND Kamala Harrisís office, and deliver a hearty THANK YOU!!!

Booker/Harris in 20/20? Or Harris/Booker? Either one starts taking on quite a luster! Only problem: both are Senators. But otherwise it looks like a nicely balanced ticket - geographically, racially, and gender-wise.

32. Understand

Cory Booker has made his future within this hearing. If he stays he's a hero. If he's expelled, he's a liberal hero, a patriot, and a candidate in 2020. If he's expelled, his interim successor would be filled by a Democratic Governor.

Be proud of our Democrats here. They have played all their cards well, without much downside!

33. The rule applies to legitimately designated documents. Not bogus ones! Good for the Democrats!

Standing up to this farce. This is what I want to see. At least we go down kicking and not whimpering.

This is why it's good that the Democrats did not walk out like The Green Party & others said they should. There needs to be an official record of what went down here, and any facts about Kavanaugh that aren't the whitewashed Republican version of the facts. And so the people would know.

So a document was released? Where is it? What did it say?

35. Since this isn't the full Senate voting just the judicial committee.

If they expell any Democrat on the committee would that delay the vote? I.e. preventing a quorum from being reached.

Just wondering if Dems have figured out a way to slow or stop the insanity.
