Shocker, Al Franken will vote no on Gorsuch’s confirmation.
As if we expected otherwise.
And sure, Franken pretends it’s because Gorsuch “won’t put himself in others’ shoes,” but deep down you know the spanking he received over the Constitution didn’t sit well with him.
I will be voting no on Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve on our U.S. Supreme Court. Full video of my statement here: https://t.co/7Qj7IHYye6

If you watch the video you’ll see more bumbling and rambling from Franken about the trucker and some disabled truck and how the guy almost froze to death … yadda yadda yadda.
Sound rationale to deny a SCOTUS justice, right?

Most of all, Franken fears he will vote with the law.
Like his colleague Senator Kamala Harris, it seems Franken’s concerns over Gorsuch are that he will adhere to the law. And hello, that’s what judges are supposed to do; not to mention Gorsuch would be replacing another literalist like Scalia.
If you need a reminder of how ridiculous and desperate Franken has behaved in these hearings:

So no surprise he’s a no … and no surprise it won’t matter anyway because the GOP will just go nuclear.
Thanks Harry Reid!
