The U.S. Senate just confirmed noted racist Jeff Sessions as our next attorney general, following a widely viral debate in the chambers last night in which Republicans led by Mitch McConnell (R-KY) formally silenced Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for reading the words of civil rights hero and widow Coretta Scott King to criticize her colleague from Alabama as unfit for nomination.
