    I personally think this is unforgivable and her gullible politics need to swap parties. She voted with the Democrats.

    If that is not the case, please name some Republicans who usually vote with most other Republicans--in other words, conservatives--that you would consider to have "personal integrity."

    Since Alaska is a very red state, I have serious doubts about the premise that Ms. Murkowski was "representing it's [sic] constituents" by casting the single Republican vote against the confirmation of Judge (now Justice) Kavanaugh.

    Perhaps it might be argued that she was targeting suburban moms--who tend to be rather centrist (or even, sometimes, liberal)--but probably not the state as a whole.

    Actually, Manchin voted "Yes" only after his vote was no longer needed. (He apparently did not want to put Kavanaugh over the top, if Republican votes alone would not accomplish it.)

    Presumably, Chuck Schumer turned him loose, to vote however he might best please his constituents (and, therefore, best position himself for re-election), once it became clear that the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh could be stopped.

    Uh no. I made no equivalency. Personal integrity is just that, personal. She had her reasons.

    Per your earlier response to me this might be an example of personal integrity or lack thereof on the other side. Only each individual knows the answer to that.

    Then please feel free to name some Republicans who are not RINOS who possess "personal integrity," in your opinion.

    (It certainly does seem like the left praises only those Republicans--among members of the GOP--who are centrist, or even slightly left-of-center.)

    And since you claim that Sen. Murkowski must have had "her reasons" for voting against Judge (now Justice) Kavanaugh, I would think that you could suggest at least one or two possibilities...

    She voiced her opinion and the tribe wants to leave her in the wilderness.

    Hooray for democracy...

    You people are fools if you think this system works.
