The Bullies’ Pulpit 0
Writing at the Des Moines Register, Rachelle Chase worries that we are becoming a nation of bullies. Here’s one of her examples; follow the link for the rest.
Then there was Sen. Lindsey Graham’s behavior during the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson. Graham continually asked Jackson questions and interrupted her answers, such as when questioning her handling of child pornography cases. He asked questions, then answered them for her. He asked about her religious beliefs, seemingly for the opportunity to share his opinion or grievances. Graham had little interest in Jackson’s answers, other than their ability to prove his point. Badgering someone to get the answer you want is bullying.
