Senate Democrats are making quite the spectacles of themselves today, which makes GOP Sen. Ben Sasse’s presence at today’s confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett even more refreshing — and necessary.
After Klobuchar's 10 min deranged rant on ORANGE MAN BAD, Ben Sasse takes the mic:

This sort of stuff is where Sasse really shines, and today was no exception.
Ben Sasse is about to break into a Schoolhouse Rock song and I'm here to say he should go for it.

.@BenSasse is giving a much-needed civics lesson to the Senate, reminding them that Amy Coney Barrett's religion is none of their damn business and not relevant to the confirmation hearing.
"Your soul is something the government can't touch."

Sen. Ben Sasse: “Before we fight again about politics, let’s reaffirm some of our civics … first, a positive grand, unifying truth about America: and that is religious liberty … the basic idea that how you worship is none of the government’s business.” https://t.co/vjiNHoJesD pic.twitter.com/v5TMi6C5Kl
