Well, this is telling. It sounds like Sen. Amy Klobuchar, whose presidential aspirations in 2020 flamed out, also pictured herself one day testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee as a Supreme Court nominee. Why does no one consider Klobuchar a “shameless careerist” like Barrett?
The best part is Klobuchar’s confession came in an exchange over Roe v. Wade and whether the ruling is a “super-precedent.” Nominee Brett Kavanaugh had considered it settled law, but the stakes are even higher now, so is the case a super-precedent?
Amy Coney Barrett to @amyklobuchar: "How would you define 'super-precedent'?"

Klobuchar doesn’t know what a super-precedent is, she just wanted to know if Roe is one.

I’m surprised Klobuchar didn’t resort to throwing a binder at the Judge in frustration.

The interns in Klobuchar’s are trembling in terror dreading her return to the office after this hearing. The beatings will be intense.

@amyklobuchar is so butt hurt over not being in ACB’s chair 😳🤷🏼♀️🤣🤣🤣

Did @amyklobuchar just tell us all “I thought I’d be a nominee by now and I’m not, so I’m going to act like a child.” ??

Thank god she’s not sitting in that seat 😱

It was apparent to the most casual observer Klobuchar hadn't a clue.

Ouch…someone thought they were going to just sling some fancy terminology out there and it came back to bite her in the butt. Lol!!

Smirky, Jr. just got clowned in the most classy and educated way. ACB owned Klobuchar in that moment.

You have to feel sorry for Klobuchar….it was so embarrassing. She was just not prepared for that question and it showed. Thought lawyers shouldn't ask questions they didn't know the answers to….

For what it’s worth, Barrett says she doesn’t consider Roe v. Wade a “super-precedent.”
Amy Coney Barrett says she doesn’t consider the Roe v. Wade decision on abortion a “super-precedent” that can’t be overruled.
Democrats worry that the court could have enough conservative justices to threaten abortion rights if she is confirmed.https://t.co/Nqi5KOfkyS
