Yeah that's the issue, each one has to get their say, and they all pretty much say/ask the same thing as the other members of their party.
So you get essentially 2 opposing viewpoints reiterated alternately for hours on end, just mind numbing after a while.

And after listening to a bunch of iton radio, when I got home and threw the TV on, Cruz was doing his thing...oy vey.

I'm sure Kavanaugh and the GOP had Judge hiding out in Delaware because they were so eager to hear his testimony supportive of Judge Grabbyhands.

Oh so basically they’re seeing what concessions they can get from fellow repubes while they continue to brand themselves as in the middle.

I also feel like Ben Sasse is not getting enough flak and Jeff Flake is taking the heat. Let’s not forget, he’s the other “I’m ashamed in this party” supposedly common sensical Republican.

Murkowski and Collins taking flak for a different reason. They’re women who claim to stand up for women but don’t give a fuck.

I thought Murkowski was definitely a no because of pressure from Alaskan voters on Kavanaugh's stance about Native American rights or something. Did I completely make that up in my head?

For anybody still wondering, this is required reading.

Shit’s real weird now.

A thing it took, like, the New York Times and Washington Post and CNN and so forth maybe a little too long to figure out, back during the 2016 campaigns, a lapse that has launched innumerable blinkered Cletus Safaris in search of some other, less chillingly sociopathic answer in the aftermath of that hell-moment, is this: What the American right wants, what it’s after, isn’t some abstract pluralist success, like the smooth functioning of government and/or the material improvement of American life. It wants, only and entirely, to defeat its opponents. Those aren’t quite the same thing. The Republican party would not choose the former if it could be accomplished without the latter.

...

It’s a bit late for anyone not to have figured this out yet, but the skeleton key to understanding American conservatism is this: At bottom, it lacks absolutely any moral or ideological underpinning beyond the reactionary protection of moneyed white men—of their station, their wealth and power, and their egos. Its supposed ideas and abstractions are just a framework for spasmodic lashing-out against anything that can be interpreted as a threat to rich white dudes.

They know full well that he'd fold like a cheap lawn chair under FBI questioning, much like Cohen, Manafort and the rest of the Trump cabal. And all the other Kavanaugh broskis would follow suit. These are all privileged men, ain't they giving that up for some guy they drank with 30 years ago.

Also, Lindsey Graham is obviously compromised. We can probably all hazard a guess as to the contents of the kompromat. His behaviour only makes sense in light of that.

What Lady Graham needs is a mint julep and a husband.

They care so much about "life", but they don't care at all about putting a person on the Supreme Court who will be deciding cases that directly affect the lives of women (and men too obviously). A person who in all likelihood sexually assaulted at least one woman. And didn't seem to have much respect for them in general. Oh but he does now, he told us so. He hires them and promotes their careers, he's a good guy now.

They're all a bunch of amoral hypocrites.

He can't even look them in the eyes. What a pathetic excuse for a man. What sort of deal has he made? He's leaving anyway.

Lindsey Graham is so far in the closet he became a sitting republican senator for decades.

This has always been a giant ruse. They care about controlling women. Their virulent homophobia is largely rooted in sexism - those "effeminate" men repulse them for much the same reason.

Which is why Lindsey ain’t coming out and it’s what’s being held against him by Trump and the Russians

His base would tear him apart
