Why do so many Senators persist during judicial confirmation hearings in making speeches rather than asking questions?"Well anyone who ever had a kid remembers the days when they were little and all you heard was: "Mom!! Dad!! Look! Look! Watch me...you're not looking!! Watch me! Watch me! Look at meeeeeeeeee!"That's pretty much the same maturity level what inhabits that 'august body' known as the US Senate.

Cameras and sound bytes are the same as emergencies...Never to be wasted.
Just be glad Joe Biden's not on the committee anymore. During his Q&A time, he'd make another 20 minute speech
Did they make long speeches before the hearings were televised?In any case, I bet it starts to backfire on them.
Even more amazing is that the only people they impress are each other and even that's questionable.
