Another line of hypocrisy from Senate Democrats in the nomination hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch to join the Supreme Court.
On Tuesday, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) – and the Senate Democrats’ official Twitter page – tried to paint Judge Neil Gorsuch as a partisan for volunteer roles he held 13 years ago.
@SenateDems painted Gorsuch’s role as an “Ohio Bush-Cheney volunteer” in 2004 – and his volunteerism for campaigns when he was nine years old – as evidence that Gorsuch will not be impartial on the bench, despite years as a respected judge.

Senate Democrats forget quickly, though, of the time they touted Elena Kagan’s credentials for the Supreme Court in 2010 – including her then-ongoing work as President Obama’s solicitor general:
Today President Obama nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace Justice Stevens on the U.S. Supreme Court. Widely regarded as one of the nation’s leading legal minds, Kagan has broken many barriers in her career.
First woman to serve as Dean in Harvard Law School
First woman to serve as Solicitor General
Would be the fourth woman to serve on the Supreme Court
As solicitor general, Kagan was responsible for arguing on behalf of the Obama-run government in the U.S. Supreme Court.
It seems Senate Democrats care more about 13-year-old volunteerism then the last job a Supreme Court nominee holds before joining the bench.
