The Democrats aren't sending their brightest...
Not long before McConnell came to the floor, Warren had an exchange with Daines. “The senator is reminded that it is a violation of Rule XIX of the Standing Rules of the Senate to impute to another senator or senators any conduct or motive unworthy or becoming [of] a senator,” Daines said, reading from prepared notes.
Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines, presiding over the Senate, had issued the warning to Warren about impugning Sessions’ motives.
Eventually, it was explained that Warren was warned for the quote from Kennedy’s remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee during consideration of Sessions’ ill-fated nomination for a federal judgeship. In those comments, Kennedy said, “He is, I believe, a disgrace to the Justice Department.”

I just wonder how anything in the public record can be considered "out of order" if it obviously pertains to the issue at hand.
But then, I am not an attorney.

How then can argument be made against him?
"Sessions cannot be appointed"
"I cannot tell you without breaking the rules of the Senate."
"Oh, it cannot be anything important then, motion passed, Sessions is in, beer and kibble in ten people. Lets wrap this up!"
I mean, really?
