Neil Gorsuch has had a great day on Capitol Hill. They have tried, but Democrat senators have failed to rattle the distinguished judge.
You get the picture.
When it was Sen. Ben Sasse’s turn to ask Gorsuch some questions, the Nebraska senator asked how Gorsuch wanted his obituary to read.
The answer was pretty impressive…
From The Daily Caller:
And people want to be remembered for the kindnesses they showed other people, by and large. What I try to point out is, it’s not how big your bank account balance is, nobody ever puts that in their draft obituary, or that they billed the most hours, or that they won the most cases. It’s how they treated other people along the way. And for me, it’s the words I read yesterday from Increase Sumner’s tombstone. And that means as a person, I’d like to be remembered as a good dad, a good husband, kind and mild in private life, dignified and firm in public life. And I have no illusions that I’ll be remembered for very long. If Byron White is as nearly forgotten as he is now, as he said he would be, I have no illusions, I won’t last five minutes; that’s as it should be. The great joy in life, Shaw said, is devoting yourself to a cause you deem mighty before you are thrown on the scrap heap. An independent judiciary in this country, I can carry that baton for as long as I can carry it, and I have no illusions i’m going to last as long as you suggest, and that’ll be good enough for me.
Neil Gorsuch is absolutely killing it so far.
Is there a more qualified judge out there than him? A good judge and an even better guy,
He is definitely making Trump look like a smart guy and even all the Never Trumpers have to be loving this one.
You don’t hear humility like that very often.
