NOT THE BEST

I've seen enough. The Alito hearings are an embarrassment to the U.S. Senate. Both republicans and democrats should lower their heads in shame. And the voters who re-elect these people year after year should have their heads examined. What are they thinking?

The U.S.A., the greatest example of democracy the world has ever seen, or ever will, and this is the best we can come up with in the Senate? If so, we're in big trouble.

It's no wonder that we don't elect Senators to the presidency anymore. Today, we're happy to promote our governors and congressmen to the White House--not senators.

We ended the practice in 1972 with Nixon; he was the last of a long line of senators to move in at 1600.

What are your thoughts on this 34 year trend? Was it Watergate that doomed all Senators?
