U.S. governance has lost any semblance of sanity

This isn't the turf I usually frequent, but it has a link – it's all about governance and politics.

No matter which way you cut it, the United States no longer has governance by its elected representatives. It's a game to them, politics at its worst, without getting anything positive done. I've been trying to identify a single achievement for the benefit of their citizens. 

The Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings are a circus where both sides battle with "gotcha" weapons. The Demoncrats don't care one whit about the woman who claims to have been abused. They are playing her like a fiddle. She wasn't the one who wanted the issue brought up, it was Democratic Party operatives scheming to derail the confirmation process so they could get control over the long run.

After all the reality TV theatrics, nobody can conclusively say the woman wasn't telling the truth. There has been no proof that she did or did not experience what has been ascribed to her, and that's not the point. By engaging in these political games they are not doing what they were elected to do, to run the country on behalf of its citizens. It is all the diversionary antics of politicians in both parties playing political chess games. When that happens, nothing beneficial can come of it.

And guess who loses. Not them.
