Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana is a disgrace and should be ousted in a primary by someone who understands the meaning of service to the country.
According to the latest reports, Republicans leaders who had planned to vote Saturday on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court may hold the vote open until Sunday so Daines can attend his daughter’s wedding, which is also on Saturday.
The problem this creates is that it gives the Democrats another day to come up with some sensational claim against Kavanaugh, attack Jeff Flake in an elevator, or whatever.
Everyone understands your desire to attend your daughter’s wedding, Mr. Daines. But you took an oath to serve the country, accepting a very powerful, prominent, and certainly ego-flattering position. You OWE the country and the people of your state.
“My daughter’s wedding has been planned for months,” Daines whined CNN.
Let me ask you a question, sir. If one of our young servicemembers who lost a limb fighting overseas to protect you could get it back in exchange for not attending their daughter’s wedding, what do you think they would do? I think they make the exchange, and their daughter would understand.
But while brave young men and women sacrifice much more, you can’t sacrifice this.
What a shameful moment. Cancel the wedding if you have to. If he loves her, he’ll marry her in a couple of months. Sorry, I know it’s an inconvenience.
