If anything, U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran, R-KS, is a gentleman.

Last week Moran bucked his party’s stance and said Judge Merrick B. Garland, nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, should be granted an audience before the Senate, which has the express privilege of vetting presidential nominees to the high court.

It’s the right thing to do, Moran said in so many words, to which fellow conservatives took as evidence he had sold his soul to the devil, or worse, had caved in to a Democratic president.
