We’ve seen the confirmation hearings for John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Most of the Senators, but especially the Democrats, made idiots of themselves. Now we have the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. Orrin Hatch asked Kavanaugh why he would devote himself to public service when, with his talent and credentials, he could make far more money in the private sector. Kavanaugh responded appropriately.

But, think about the Senators. How many of them could make it in the private sector? I can see Senator Chuck Schumer as a sleazy divorce lawyer, Senator Joe Biden as an ambulance chaser, Senator Arlen Specter as a funeral director, Senator Teddy Kennedy as a life guard (joke), and Senator Dianne Feinstein as a politically corrrect and utterly incompetent Public School principal. None of them could achieve the income, perks and status they have as Senators if they had to make it in the private sector.
