There, this is the honest answer.  These are our choices, we just need to say it out loud more often.

I'm all for benching  anyone with a credible, substantiated accusation, and booting them after a reasonably fair hearing of both sides. That said, I think we should handle these as they come along, so far we've handled Newt (sort of).... and  Al Franken... seems there are a few that should have come in between, and a whole lot after. 

Maybe you should make a list?

The always insightful and informative Linda Greenhouse writes of an old Supreme Court fight over the appointment of a highly controversial man. In 1937 FDR nominated Hugo Black, an Alabama Senator and strong supporter of the New Deal, for the Court despite Black's "limited judicial experience...and an education viewed as marginal for a Supreme Court justice."

During confirmation hearings, the Senate Judiciary subcommittee dealt with rumors that Black as a young lawyer in Alabama had been a member of the KKK. Greenhouse notes that SC nominees did not appear before the subcommittee during those times. Black's supporters denied the rumors and the subcommittee "rammed the nomination through to the full committee after two hours of consideration." Apparently one Senator went into a tirade in defense of Black and nearly got into a fistfight with another Senator—of his own party. (Lindsey Graham was tame by comparison). 

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Hugo Black and the Senate confirmed him by 63-16. But then, right before the start of the new Court term, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran a series of articles proving that Black had indeed been a member of the KKK. 

But Black was not removed from the Court and served for 34 years. Even more amazing: "During those 34 years, Hugo Black became one of the great civil libertarians in Supreme Court history."

I do miss the old Kurtster. Didn't always agree with him, but he was interesting and fun. Something happened ~ when Obama was re-elected. I think that broke a lot of people that were simply opposition in term 1. I bet we'll see a lot of the same if/when Trump gets a second term.
