Let the Sideshow Begin [OPINION]
Hurry, hurry, hurry! Because the sideshow is about to begin!
The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee presents the Greatest Show on Earth! The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett are getting underway under the big top up on "The Hill." Come one, come all! Everyone is welcome because ladies and gentlemen, the circus is in town!
Yes, the circus has officially pulled into Washington, D.C. You will witness credibility-defying performances by none other than Senate Democrats Kamala "Honest Abe" Harris, Patrick "Leaky" Leahy, Sheldon "Boof" Whitehouse, Richard "Stolen Valor" Blumenthal, and Cory "Spartacus" Booker, among others!
Get your peanuts, popcorn, and Cracker Jacks and settle in to witness the thrills, the chills, and the excitement of Democrat politics as usual!
Hurry, hurry, hurry! Don't miss a minute of the smears, the smirks, the innuendos, and the all-out character assassinations. It's all there, under the dome, for your enjoyment! Come one, come all!
Don't miss the great Swami, "Sleepy Joe" Biden, performing unbelievable feats from his basement. That's right, folks! "Sleepy Joe," who will reveal the age-old secret of whether he'll pack the Supreme Court, but you've got to "deserve to know" by voting for him first to unlock the truth! And that's not all! Hear as "Sleepy Joe" tells the tale of how filling an open seat on the Supreme Court is unconstitutional!
Get your tickets now! Don't be left-winged out! Its the Greatest Show on Earth, and it promises not to disappoint! Unless, of course, you were hoping to stop the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
