Boy Mitch, bet you wish you'd had that anti-lynching legislation signed now.

Also just to remind everyone despite assurances to the contrary that 'of course it would get done it just needed to wait' you know while Rand Paul got pissy over it and surprise surprise the easiest thing to vote on ever making lynching a federal crime still didn't pass the republican led senate.

fta: "McConnell is lining up two items as the final pieces of the chamber's agenda before the Nov. 3 elections: A GOP-only coronavirus bill and ACB's Supreme Court nomination, hoping to give vulnerable incumbents something to tout back in their home states."

That's his cunning plan?

Force the Handmaiden on the court and put through a GOP only bill in the Senate for Covid relief after stalling deliberately for months?

1st, he's achieved peak religious right.

ACB on SCOTUS will not draw new voters to the GOP and, indeed, will turn off and turn out a large number of women voters for the Dem ticket.

Speaking of which have you seen those numbers?

Talk about a ratio. Historical numbers.

2nd, if the Dems are smart they will push the narrative that the GOP don't care about Covid or people in dire need until it is politically convenient. Which should blunt any gains on that front and if done right will win votes.

There's only a few thousand of them. Efficiency is not an issue. Better to make the punishment as stark as possible to push those who might even consider taking over these people to reconsider. We want the soon-to-be Jacob Wohls to just say, "Naw, not worth it."

Starvation counts as "cruel and unusual" punishment. I may hate them with a fiery passion, but I'm still  a better person than them and want to see them punished fully in a constitutionally-mandated way.

As a thought experiment if Trump and his GOP traitor pals were to be investigated and charged with various espionage and treason type charges and *were* to be sentenced to be legally hanged...

Would I want them to all hang at once or separately?

Probably just go with whatever they did in Nuremberg back in the day.

Precedent, all that.

Purely a hypothetical, obviously.
