Eastland chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee when Biden entered the Senate -- a committee he would later chair.

I hope it's Warren. I forgive her. I was insulted but she was brave enough to get tested. She was raised believing that.

If it's Creepy Joe, I'm voting Mussolini or something. Maybe we can have Meth Squirrel for president, I don't care but not Joe. Look at his history. Also present.
