A good parenting rule: Never negotiate with a screaming toddler during a major tantrum…or with Dems throwing a public hissy fit.
So all that talk from Democrats and liberals at the McCain funeral about the need for civility & decency in our politics was just all talk. Got it. #KavanaughConfirmation

Democrats made an unsuccessful bid to adjourn Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing on Tuesday, arguing they hadn’t had time to review more than 42,000 documents handed over to the committee on Monday.
Democrats began interrupting the committee chairman almost as soon as he started trying to give his opening statement on the first day of the Supreme Court nominee’s confirmation hearings.
Democrats, one after one, interrupted Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) to lambast the committee’s process on handling Kavanaugh’s documents and urged the chairman to adjourn the hearing until they had time to review the new paperwork.
Grassley fired back at Democrats, saying there was “no reason” to delay.
Democrats were aided by protestors in the hearing audience who continued to interrupt Grassley as he tried to move forward or respond to Democrats.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) called the committee’s handling of the documents a “charade” and a “mockery” to the chamber….
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Caif.) said that the senators could not “possibly move forward” given the late hand-over of documents….
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) continued to argue that Democrats believed this hearing “should be postponed.”
Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) tried to appeal to Grassley’s “decency” but he was also shot down….
