After three hours of listening to pontificating senators drone on, it was finally Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s turn to say a few words at his confirmation hearing on Monday. Gorsuch was sworn “to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,” and after thanking his colleagues, friends, and the president, he said a few words about his wife:
“Mr. Chairman, I could not even attempt to do this without Louise, my wife of more than 20 years. The sacrifices she has made and her open and giving heart leave me in awe.”His voice caught a bit when he looked back at her and said: “I love you so much.”
That brought Louise Gorsuch out of her seat.
This unexpected loving moment was brought to you by the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court .......and me thinks someone may just get lucky tonight.
