United states Senator Patty Murray gave a speech at a Planned Parenthood rally at the capitol in Olympia, where she dogged on the Republicans for holding up an Obama Supreme Court nominee, made fun of Ted Cruz, and said Republicans “Watch Mad Men and think it’s a how-to.”

After the speech, I had an opportunity to ask her about Senator Schumer’s similar tactic of wanting to hold up Bush Supreme Court nominations when he was nearing the end of his Presidency. Senator Murray’s staffers blocked me as they shuttled her into the get away car, and Senator Murray had no interest in answering the question about her own party’s hypocrisy.

    Dear Mike,

    Thanks for continuing to expose the very bad behavior of politicians in the Pacific Northwest. When they think that their audience is completely supportive, they show their true heavily partisan colors. Then when you confront their hypocrisy, they run. A responsible leader, and especially a US Senator, should stand and answer your questions, even if they are hostile. Of course, there is no way they can defend their bad behavior, so they try to get away.

    I remember the similar incident a few years ago with Representative Earl Blumenauer who literally ran from you. The truth really scares these people.

    Gordon

    That’s hilarious, those short little legs of hers walking as fast as they can. Every one of these decadents needs this treatment…their microphones and podiums will be silent forever.

    try getting an answer from ANY of these reprobates, regardless of party. They spout off in public, but always avoid talking with their constituents. They visit GE, and Goldman Sachs, but won’t have any public meetings with their constituents.

    If you ever ask her how far she can get her head up her ass she will never speak to you again. I know, I asked her 10 years ago and she has never responded to my questions again.

    So let me get this straight – some RWNJ sticks a phone in Senator Murray’s face, and she has been thusly “called out” for “SCOTUS hypocrisy?” The Democratic position is simple – hearings and a vote, the samme way it has been done with every other vacancy. Maybe the vote leads to confirmation, maybe not. But the path forward has been clear for centuries now. It is the GOP that is engaging in hypocrisy, wrapping themselves in “love of Constitution” when they would happily subvert it to gain political power.
