I wasn't talking about the merits of the case, but the way Gorsuch handled the questioning. It would have been easy to deal with Franken's point. But Gorsuch looked flustered by a line of questioning that he must have encountered before, and he went all Washington Weasel "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" when asked direct questions about eg. if he'd have liked to be on the road with the guy. That part of Gorsuch's performance, at least, looked weak. These were not difficult questions but he flunked the opportunity to look like a plain-speaking normal individual rather than just another out-of-touch Stepford career-politician-cover-my-ass-at-all-costs type. And I thought you guys hated that type.
