She's an unqualified moron.  You know that, I know that, everyone knows that.  The only reason she has a chance at the job is because Republicans think winning is more important then being good at the job.

Hold on.  I don't think this these folks are entirely right in the head and I certainly don't want this appointment to process.  But, they didn't inspire The Handmaid's Tale - the author confirms this to be the case.  It was a different, similarly named, cult.  Not arguing with your conclusions, just your facts.


You're right, they shouldn't have said "literally inspired."  But at the very least, the cult Barrett has been part of for decades is absolutely a brother cult to the one Atwood based The Handmaid's Tale on.  It's a charismatic Catholic cult, which is to say they do things like speak in tongues and do faith healings, and other pentecostal-related crap.

Point is, the underlying danger stands.

THank you.

I'm looking it up and see why the confusion: Atwood in 1987 merely mentioned a "a Catholic charismatic spinoff sect, which calls the women handmaids." and Barrett's group did refer to the advisors who tell members what to do as "heads" (men) or "handmaids" (women) and changed the names after Handmaid's Tale came out.  The other group (People of Hope) called wives "handmaids" also.

So I guess I'm back to hating ABC for her sh*tty "originalist" Constitutional takes and her normal level of religiously imposed misogyny (seriously, Paul should NOT be in the Bible)

Do you mean she does get graded on a curve? Because that's what comparing her to others means.

No I mean she doesn't get graded on a curve compare to the rest of us.  She's out of her depth, and frankly so are you.

Okay. Maybe we can have a rational conversation about her later when the 2 minutes hate are up and you're thinking straight.


Find a Supreme Court judge with less qualification and relevant experience in the last 50 years.  You can't, because she's woefully unqualified.

So her position is that if someone were to commit a felony while using a gun, after serving their sentence, they get the right to own a gun back, or more literally never lost that right, but they don't get their right to vote back?


Believe it or not, I'm not opposed to having felons (of non-violent crimes) having their rights to own guns restored, as well as their voting rights. ACB is just applying those standards in a hypocritical manner.

Why you keep trotting out Rehnquist and Kagan is beyond me. They've already been confirmed. Whatever we may think about their qualifications, it's too late. (Especially Rehnquist, being dead)

In general, being a law professor for even 50 years would be a disqualifier for me. Professors are singularly ignorant about the real-world applications of the law, unless they're also practicing attorneys. A lot of them are ideologues. Or they know one narrow area, and are ignorant of other applications.

We agree that she's not the most qualified candidate available, but if there job is to interpret the law, 15 years of teaching it at a prestigious institution hardly qualifies as entity level.

Completely ignoring her experience is not a strong argument.

There was never a point where she could have retired and gotten through hearings with a Dem supermajority (even if we're including former Dem Lieberman as a guaranteed 60th vote).  Ted Kennedy was already in the hospital by the time Al Franken got seated.  Kennedy's replacement didn't get seated until the end of September, and the Senate was already deep into the heath care debate, working through recess to finish.  That takes us all the way to the end of December, then it was recess again for the holidays until January 19th, the day of the Massachusetts special election.  Scott Brown was seated about two weeks later.  SCOTUS confirmations usually take at least two months.

Also, two words: Moscow Miatch:
Fark user imageView Full Size

The above was from a tweet retweeted from then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid dated November 21, 2013 and is why he invoked the "nuclear option," because even though Moscow Miatch was only Senate Minority Leader at the time, he had already done more filibusters of nominees than all previous Presidents combined had had to deal with.

The chart is incorrectly labeled as PolitiFact points out (they rate it "Mostly True") since it counts cloture motions, not actual nominees blocked (there were sometimes multiple clotures for a given nominee). The actual case is even worse! 68 individual nominees blocked from 1789 (when George Washington was inaugurated) − noon EST on January 20, 2009; vs. 79 from noon EST on January 20, 2009 − November 22, 2013 (when the PolitiFact article was published). So, that blue slice on the left for Obama should be quite a bit smaller, and the red slice for all the others quite a bit larger.

Of course, once the GOP took the Senate in 2014, starting January 3, 2015, Moscow Miatch was Senate Majority Leader and he just plain wouldn't hold votes for Obama nominees, period (no, Merrick Garland wasn't the only one ― he was just a particularly egregious example), as he openly bragged about to Sean Hannity.

I'm impressed with Biden's ability to be kind to people.

Back when he was VP, two people interrupted Biden to complain about their friend killed in Syria.  Joe handled it very respectfully and talked to them afterwards.  It turns out the friend wasn't a member of the armed forces, he was a civilian who illegally joined a foreign militia.

I also think it's terrible cruel that people take his gentleness with children and make him out like he's a pedophile.  It's toxic masculinity.  If children aren't treated kindly, they turn into incompetent jerks.

/their court nominee has an opposition opinion where she says voting is a right of only the "virtuous" citizens which should terrify anyone who isn't interested in licking Donald Trump's taint in order to be able to vote.  That qualifier was used after the civil war to deny the vote to black people (and, I suppose via denying felons with full civil rights, still is via the targeting of black men by police and prosecutors)

I mean the only response to that position is, "Ma'am, why do you support arming rapists and serial murderers?"

"Ma'am your own argument is that it is an individual right not based on virtue (other than the virtue of having enough money to afford firearms), so why do you want rapists and serial murderers to be armed all the time?"

"Ma'am, my mother was raped. Why do you want her rapist to have a firearm? Why are you trying to facilitate rapist and murderers?"

In a NYTimes article in 1987 Atwood herself seems to think the Catholic sect got the idea from her, not the other way around.  Which still raises the question of whether the word 'handmaid' was a coincidental use (possibly due to a common source of inspiration) or a forgotten reference to People of Praise.

The direct inspiration for her book seems to be the Iranian revolution (1979) and the Puritans.

This woman is a terrible pick for SCOTUS, Having said that, you are reading this opinion incorrectly. She is not talking about virtue as a trait in an individual. She is talking about political virtue, which is the act of giving up some bits of absolute freedom to make it possible to live in a functioning democracy (or republic, as the window-lickers would insist).

You won't have to. The republicans play chess with a move depth of 1. The blowback from nuking the ACA in court is to get single payer.

We could have had a hybrid system through significant regulation of the RICO activity going on in the healthcare industry, thus driving down the costs to where only the indigent and economically struggling would require a 100% paid public policy. (Medicare for all who need it, private paid care for rich people who don't)

Instead we will get a full single payer system with a government where some politicians try to fark it up instead of making it work well.

Because if we are going to sit there and say "this person lacks the qualifications to be a Supreme Court Justice" pointing to actual Supreme Court justices with similar qualifications is relevant to showing that the claims that this person lacks whatever amorphous qualifications that are required.


If that was the only qualification anyone was talking about, then maybe you'd have a point. Maybe some people are.

However, she lacks breadth in OTHER areas that make ME question her qualifications overall; specifically her lack of breadth in any area besides teaching law in law school, which in MY opinion makes anyone (yes: anyone) unqualified for a seat on the Supreme Court. If all anyone (yes: anyone) had to offer was a couple of years on a circuit or appellate court and a lot of years in the classroom, then they should not be considered for SCOTUS. As I said above, I would consider the brilliant Constitutional scholar Erwin Chemerensky unqualified for a seat on the Supreme Court bench, despite being arguably more "qualified" than anyone currently sitting.

Things may have been different in times past, of course, which is why Rhenquist's confirmation is irrelevant. And of course neither you nor I have any say in the matter, which is why our opinions are also irrelevant.

[pbs.twimg.com image 680x382]

This woman is a terrible pick for SCOTUS, Having said that, you are reading this opinion incorrectly. She is not talking about virtue as a trait in an individual. She is talking about political virtue, which is the act of giving up some bits of absolute freedom to make it possible to live in a functioning democracy (or republic, as the window-lickers would insist). Political virtue is the heart of liberalism. Having said that, this woman is not a liberal.


The issue is here:

To resolve the Second Amendment matter, Barrett noted that the governments haven't "introduced any evidence that founding-era legislatures imposed virtue-based restrictions on the right; such restrictions applied to civic rights like voting and jury service, not to individual rights like the right to possess a gun."

"history does show that felons could be disqualified from exercising certain rights-like the rights to vote and serve on juries-because these rights belonged only to virtuous citizens."


She is NOT espousing a position from liberalism but rather as a strict originalist where certain rights (voting) were limited to white, male land owners, for example.  Her stated position is that anything in the Constitution requires a Constitutional amendment to alter (so women can vote) but indicates a willingness to limit voting rights except in how they are specifically protected in the Constitution.

This becomes incredibly relevant when large portions of the voting public are denied their right to vote because of felonies that result from racist policing and imprisonment.

/sh*t, we just found out about two different plots to remove (mostly) black tenants from housing by landlords and police conspiring to pin felonies on residents to justify their forced removal so areas could be gentrified.  St. Louis and Atlanta.  If police are willing to frame black people over property scams, why not over voting rights or just general good ol boy racism?

Uhm, nice demonstration of the awesome superpower of Ace Reporter Jack Brolin there, Insurgent. When did you get bitten by a retroactive spider? Oh, gameshowhost and Klyukva, which of his caped-and-medalioned Shmoo sidekicks Shoulda, Coulda, and Woulda, are each of you?

She'd only had two bouts of cancer at the time of the short-lived Democratic supermajority in the Senate (which lasted only weeks, not the full two years, contrary to popular belief). One of those was almost a decade previously: stage 2 colon cancer (90+% recovery rate) in September 1999. Generally considered cured after five years. She went double that. Pancreatic cancer was diagnosed in January 2009 around the time of Obama's inauguration, but it was a rare case of catching it in time (the main reason pancreatic cancer is so deadly is that it shows no definitive symptoms until it's too late ― catch it early enough as hers was then and it's quite treatable). Again, she went well over five years cancer-free. Her remaining three bouts of cancer were well into the Trump Administration, starting in November 2018.

The Democratic ⅗ Senate supermajority even on paper only lasted from the seating of Al Franken in July 7, 2009 due to Norm Coleman's refusal to concede and demanded recounts (and after Arlen Specter's earlier party switch), until Ted Kennedy's passing on August 25, 2009. But during pretty much all of that time either Byrd or Kennedy was in the hospital in the process of dying and rarely able to cast votes.

It takes sixty actual votes, not just sixty Democratic Senators on the roster, to invoke cloture and break a filibuster. Given that the Republican leaders had pledged on the day of Obama's inauguration in their secret meeting at The Caucus Room eatery (a meeting called by GOP strategist Frank Luntz who wasn't elected to anything) to oppose everything Obama tried to do, no matter what the consequences, even if it were something they'd normally support ― even if it were their own idea! (remember McConnell filibustering his own bill just because Obama liked it?), and given that during this period Harry Reid had not yet nuked the filibuster even for lower-court, let alone Supreme Court (Mitch would do that during the Trump Administration to get Gorsuch and Kavanaugh seated) justices, when, exactly, was she supposed to retire while being reasonably sure that Obama would get to nominate her replacement and the Senate would confirm it?

She also had no way of knowing in advance that James O'Keefe would do that ACORN sting video that led to Congress (sadly including many Democratic votes, and signed by Obama [despite being an unconstitutional Bill of Attainder], all of whom fell for O'Keefe's bald-faced lies) defunded that worthy organization right as the Census Year 2010 Midterm election season was starting, when ACORN's inner-city voter registration and GotV infrastructure was most needed (they'd been doing such a good job that both the DNC and DCCC had let their own infrastructures in this regard atrophy, and so suddenly had none when we most needed them), costing the Dems even close to a Senate supermajority, their majority in the House (hello Speaker Bœhner!) thanks to the Teabagger influx, and a whopping eleven State legislatures (putting the Constitution itself in dire danger).

So, yeah, Ace Reporter Jack Brolin & two of his three Shmoo Sidekicks, when exactly should she have retired?

Good Lord.  And she cites a Freaking Kentucky Law Journal for her support?

[Fark user image image 650x408]

I mean the only response to that position is, "Ma'am, why do you support arming rapists and serial murderers?"

"Ma'am your own argument is that it is an individual right not based on virtue (other than the virtue of having enough money to afford firearms), so why do you want rapists and serial murderers to be armed all the time?"

"Ma'am, my mother was raped. Why do you want her rapist to have a firearm? Why are you trying to facilitate rapist and murderers?"

No, the question should be to ask if she wants Jeffrey Epstein to have a firearm.


Opps, make that Ghislaine Maxwell.

Why does she want Ghislaine Maxwell to have a fire arm?

Or Brock Turner.

oopsboom: her experience, while on the short side, wouldn't be inherently disqualifying on its own.
many of her decisions on the 7th circuit are actually good ones.

the ones which are really troubling though are the ones where she shows that she believes that on certain topics of religious importance the church is the law of the land instead of congress.  and that the church saying something is bad or wrong makes it "unconstitutional" which is a funny definition of originalist that conservatives seem to have fairly often.


That's the question that will likely be hammered into her, likely multiple times in multiple ways, for as long as the Democrats can ask it.

I love how right wingers who say she's a total hottie keep sharing pics of her that are filtered more than Cybil Shepard was in "Moonlighting".

[Fark user image image 850x845]

I saw this pic.

[Fark user image 500x500]

First the pic reminded me of Michelle Bachman.

Then it reminded me of the guy who would occasionally tell the many women lawyers in the office that he thought they should be at home, cooking and taking care of the children and they had no business working.  (He then played the victim when he and a third of the firm was laid off during truly bad economic times for the firm's specialty.)

I doubt if a conservative reporter will ask her why she is working, instead of being at home with the children.

This would be the least heartbreaking question ever.
