…on Gorsuch: he’s too retro and sort of folksy.
What sort of idiocy is this column by Milbank in the WaPo? It sounds like junior high school gossip:
No fewer than eight times [Gorsuch] punctuated his testimony with “Leave It to Beaver” exclamations of “goodness” — “goodness, no!” “oh, my goodness!” — and, though only 49 years old, spoke in archaic phrases: “since I was a tot,” “a fair and square deal,” “doesn’t give a whit.”
Perhaps Milbank would prefer it if Gorsuch had said “doesn’t give a shit”? Would that have been modern and edgy enough?
