Can we get together a long list of who has “diminished” the Senate?
Says the Senator who has diminished the US Senate.
This provides proof of the inability of the a Democrat to be an honest broker.
Hey Leaky Leahy...you diminish the HUMAN RACE you are so DISGUSTINGLY EVIL!
It would diminish it from its role as super legislator.
The way Leaky Leahy diminishes the Senate? Considering the caliber of people in the Senate that isn’t easy.
So sayeth The Leaky One.
And a racist sexist “wise Latina” didnt?
Democratic U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont is a disgrace, a threat to national security and a blight on the good people of VT.
Suppose your son were accused of rape. Would you presume him guilty or would you want to hear both sides, examine witnesses and look at physical evidence, if any?

Do you agree that women drink beer too? Do you hate all people who drink beer or just men who drink beer? Suppose woman who drinks beer gives a beer to a man who drinks beer? Do you denounce her for enabling toxic masculinity by encouraging men to drink beer?
He wasn’t concerned that Sotomayor and Kagan diminished the confidence Americans had in the court.
The great diminisher has spoken.
Much like you diminish the senate?
We really need to rally the decent men & women, across America before the coming election. The dishonest & degenerate must not be allowed to benefit from their own misdeeds!
Leahy needs his dirt nap.
And ole Leaky Leahy has done wonders for raising the bar in the Senate.
Actually the only thing “being diminished” here is the credibility of the Democrat Party. That this sort of OBVIOUS sleazy shameful poltical fraud is being perpetrated by the Democrats indicates no Democrat anywhere is fit for public office.
This whole episode has raised a new awareness for US Voters of just how despicable and power mad the current crop of Democrat politicians, at all levels, are.
