Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R), during today’s confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson:

I think we should recognize that the jackassery we often see around here is partly because of people mugging for short-term camera opportunities.

I’m sorry, but no shit. Having televised hearings like this always defeats the purpose of transparency and allows the jackasses to have a platform to strut their bullshit for soundbites and viral videos.
