    Shutting Warren down is ungentlemanly and undermines collegiality.

    "Gentlemanly" is a sexist code word designed to subtly emphasize that women should not be senators. Therefore to refer to warren as being treated ungentlemanly is actually a compliment

    I wonder if she invented Mazola.

    No it doesn't, but it keeps the Democrats in the wrong. I am not convinced that a thirty year old opinion from Coretta Scott King on Jeff Sessions is really relevant, but I do believe that Rule 19 cannot have the same relevance when the senator himself is the topic of debate. I would not cede to Mrs. King a veto on Federal judgeships (or, post-mortem, on UAGs) just because she was married to MLK. Warren's was a plain appeal to authority (invoking King's name).

    For the same reason that speakers in a deliberative body orient their comments to the presiding officer ("Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of the bill ...") not to their opponents. It helps maintain collegiality.

    I do believe that the Left believes that DOJ is their toy to play with, and they are vehemently opposed to anyone that does not share their vision playing with their toy. While the DOJ has done some good, they have also committed a ton of wrong, often in violation of plain provisions of the US Constitution. It was created to ensure one party gained a partisan political advantage, and, while it has switched its partisan allegiance to the other party, it is still mainly oriented to maintaining one party's partisan political advantage.

    I chuckled at the absurd notion that a letter written by a guy 25 years earlier thanking a prominent person for "saving me from the draft" was not to be taken seriously as an argument because that was so long ago but citing a 30-year old written letter by a dead person is to be treated as an ex cathedra statement from the Pope to the faithful.

    I suspect both Warren and McConnell were playing to their bases.

    Her status as a liberal icon now gets elevated to those nutbags who tend to control the nomination process in both parties - the ones who think the reason Hillary lost is she wasn't liberal enough. (Note: This is true in both parties; Trump was primarily the product of too many candidates splitting the actual right-wing vote).
