|Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND)|
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp shocked just about no one by announcing that she will vote NO to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. She's a red-state Democrat senator running for re-election facing a double digit lead by her opponent in a state DJT won by close to 40%. She's toast, but valiantly claims she will vote no "even if it cost her an election", one she probably knows she won't win anyway. Way to throw yourself on your sword there Heidi.
The last week showed the dems on the national stage increasingly falling into disarray and chaos. Senator Heidi's decision may be just a Hail-Mary to the back of the end-zone and get her a few extra votes from the teachers union in Minot. But you can bet after the mid-terms she will be invited to all the talk shows, portrayed as a Bold Feminist Heroine and Great Defender of Women and Democracy who gave all for her country. Who knows, they may even name a rock in North Dakota in her honor or something. To be truthful, the few times I've seen this woman on TV she reminded me of every female prison guard I've seem in the movies, and she kinda made my skin crawl......
Come on North Dakota, send Heidi back to the Natural Gas Co. where she came from!
