Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass nails it and rips Dianne Feinstein to pieces over her lack of decency:
Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind:
Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein?
Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.
A lack of decency was something to be feared, something to be avoided for the health of the country.
You’d hear about it in tales told by history teachers to frighten children, about Republican Sen. Joe McCarthy and his wild, unsubstantiated charges without evidence, of communists hiding under America’s beds.
Such charges ruined reputations and careers, and took advantage of public opinion that had been whipped up during those Red Scare days.
Many have forgotten those days ever existed. But I remember liberal and conservative professors (there were still conservative professors then), talking about McCarthy and what a danger his demagogic recklessness posed to the republic.
And so, I ask again, Sen. Feinstein: Have you no decency?
The answer of course is sadly, no.
