Senator Ben Sasse is a national treasure. Not only is he witty, charming, and obviously good-natured, he also cares deeply about the Nebraskans who voted him into office, the office itself, and the American people. Senator Sasse is committed to adhering to his oath of office in which he swore to support and defend the US Constitution. To top it all of, Senator Sasse recently live-tweeted one of his kids’ piano recitals. National treasure, indeed.
It’s no surprise, then, that Senator Sasse handled his time questioning Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch with humility, whimsy, and gravitas. Taking to task the Democrats who have used the confirmation hearings for political grandstanding purposes, Senator Sasse reminded all of us of what a Supreme Court Justice’s Constitutional role is. I encourage you to watch the video, and give thanks to God that He has raised such a man up for this hour.
(For the record, me being good friends with Senator Sasse’s Chief of Staff had very little to do with the nice things I wrote about the Senator.)
