The Senate should confirm Amy Coney Barret tomorrow, without holding hearings. There is no purpose for the hearings as Democrats have already told us they will block vote against her regardless of anything she, or anyone else, says at the hearings. Some Judiciary Committee members have refused to even meet with her, as is the tradition.

So, there is nothing to be gained from a hearing and Democrats will simply use them as free advertising to rant about things not relevant to her qualifications.

There are better ways to use the Senate’s remaining time before the election than to provide a forum for meaningless grandstanding that will not change a single vote.
