I have to admit it — Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., is one of my all-time favorite senators. Not only is he a patriot and a conservative, he’s got a terrific sense of humor. That singular wit and humor was on full display during Wednesday’s hearing with Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
Kennedy responded to a series of “gotcha” questions from Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris by mocking her questions with a series of his own intended to make fun of the stupidity coming from the left.
Mediaite reported on the exchange between Kennedy and Barrett:

“Let’s try to answer some of Senator Harris’ accusations,” Kennedy started. “Are you a racist?”
Barrett said, “I am not a racist, Senator Kennedy.”
Kennedy went on to ask, “Do you support in all cases corporations over working people?”
“I do not, I think if you look at my record, you will see cases in which I’ve decided for plaintiffs, not corporations,” Barrett responded.
Kennedy asked, “Are you against clean air, bright water, and environmental justice?”
“I am not against any of those things,” Barrett said. “Those are policies that the Congress has pursued in many statutes and I think we all reap the benefits of when those statutes work.”
“Do you support science?” Kennedy asked. “Do you support children and propserity?”
Barrett responded affirmatively to both of those.
Finally, Kennedy asked, “Do you hate little warm puppies?”
Barrett laughed and said she doesn’t.
Here’s a longer version of the exchange as posted to Twitter by The Hill:

This exchange came after Harris asked Barrett a series of ridiculous questions, including: “Do you accept that Covid-19 is infectious?”
