RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): But, you know, I mentioned that the Judiciary Committee does not have to do its thing. It's become a tradition, but it's not a requirement. And since Trump has already driven them crazy, since Trump's already — I mean, long before today, they are crazy — then why not just blow up another tradition? Because I'll tell you, that's how we're going to maintain the ones that matter. It is the very traditions and institutions that define this country that the left has in its crosshairs. They have to be defeated. This Supreme Court seat has to be confirmed, it has to be named and confirmed before the election.
I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped. We don't need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaughed, or Borked, or Thomased. Because that's what it's going to be, especially when it's not even required.
In addition, there are people on the Judiciary Committee who need to be out campaigning in October — not trying to deflect leftist attempts to distort the nominee's junior high school yearbook. And when the vote count is assured, Mitch McConnell needs to take it straight to the floor of the Senate and have the vote.
But when the vote count is assured, go straight to the floor for a vote. You know why? That protects the senators from being all-out attacked by the Democrat mobs, it stops a whole bunch of that.
We don't want to give Kamala Harris the opportunity to grandstand in that committee, as a vice-presidential running mate of [Joe Biden].
