"But who can remember pain, once it's over? All that remains of it is a shadow, not in the mind even, in the flesh. Pain marks you, but too deep to see. Out of sight, out of mind."

All because he got booed.

Gotta push in that court appointee before the election.

Sorry Fundamentalists. It's not about YOU. It's about what you can do for Trump.

Senate will probably approve her by mid-week, no hearings.

Trump can't stand not to be the center of attention for two minutes. having RBG lying in state in the capitol took the spotlight off him for half a day.

She already had hearings before her most recent appointment. No need to waste any more of her time. And such as. And so forth.

Can't steal the election without having that guaranteed vote.

Alley Rat: Can't steal the election without having that guaranteed vote.


All the more reason to make this election more than just a referendum.

It needs to be an complete evisceration of the GOP up and down the ticket.

Biden needs to win by twice the popular vote margin Hillary had, and pick up 100 more EC votes, too.

Yertle, Blanche, and every other open Senate seat needs to be flipped, too.

Can it happen?  Yes, if enough people get the Fark out and vote.

Will it happen?

That's the zillion dollar question.

So first 100 days:

Make Puerto Rico states
Add 2 seats to the SC
Pass a national right to abortion rights law
Impeach Kavenaugh (lied in his confirmation)
Charge Barr with treason
investigate and jail the trump kids and trump
investigate republican senators for insider trading and impeach and convict

alternative to a couple of these:

72 is mandatory retirement age for SC judges

I think they should do a judicial reform act and dit the 9th, then make one SCOTUS justice per circuit for a total of 13 justices, then add DC and PR, if PR wants it, as states.

Donny cannot make policy via Twitter. He actually has to have someone draw up the paperwork first.
 
2020-09-25 8:53:08 PM  
I'm actually surprised that he didn't announce the pick while standing in front of the body.
 
2020-09-25 8:53:20 PM  
At least he only nominated one Justice and not 3 or 5.

You all laugh, but the specific relgiious cult this woman is part of directly inspired Atwood to Write the handmaids tale. 


If she makes it onto the bench we are well and truly farked.

First instinct was to decide whether this was smart or funny or both. Then the reality sank in and I recoiled in horror. I give it 50-50 odds this actually happens.

Good point, she's not actually the nominee. Apparently, due to her deeply held religious beliefs, her husband just got nominated

Yes. I too want The Handmaiden Tale to become reality.

So he bought a charge dropped, and she bought a scotus seat?

You have me at most of those however age limits on SC justices is unconstitutional if I am not mistaken.  You also can't defund them either.  Two to four additional judges would be great.

The senate might flip blue. Yertle will win re-election.

I agree.  The Court has not been expanded since 1869, when there were about 35 million people in the USA and only 37 States.

Question ...does she have to recuse since Trump has already said out loud that he wants her on the court to name him president if it goes to scotus?
