Sen. Susan Collins, explaining why she will vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, gave the best speech heard in America since Dr. Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech in 1963 during the March on Washington.
The following video calls her speech "explosive." Maybe. But it was much more: intelligent, honest, eloquent and rational. It was delivered without the flaming rhetoric that has characterized this embarrassing confirmation process. It responded point by point to the legal, character and political arguments raised by Kavanaugh's opponents. It was a profile in courage in pursuit of the truth. It rose about the talking points, raging emotions and threadbare arguments of both sides.
If you want to see how debate should be conducted in the Senate, as the founders sought to resolve the difficulty of unifying a democracy composed a various interests and beliefs, take 45 minutes out of your day and listen to watch she said in its entirety.
Geez, Hannity agrees with me. Maybe I should rethink it.
