Relax.  The panel is meant to fulfil a campaign pledge without accomplishing anything.
 
2021-04-23 9:12:15 AM  
Would be nice to burn all the Federalist Society fascists out of government entirely.

HOLY FARK BIDEN PUT A CONSERVATIVE ON A BIPARTISAN COMMISSION! THE MONSTER!

Yep. And there seems no indication any other conservative would have been a better replacement.

So maybe this person is the least dickish of the group he was given

It might have been nice if he didn't put a conservative on the panel that openly defended one of the reasons the panel exists to begin with, though.

Uh oh. Biden did something.

In before the Snack Pack causes yet another category 4 Brostorm.

Adam White, a law professor at George Mason University Law School and a contributor at the Federalist Society,

That tells me all I need to know. C'mon Joe WTF!?

This isn't as awful a choice as people are thinking. Adam White offers him cover from the right wing attacks even while he will be a minority voice on the commission

Except the right will attack Joe if/when he follow the recommendations of the conservatives on the commission.

Doesn't follow the recommendations*

Since Biden has spent a lifetime working in government and I haven't, I might not second-guess him based on a headline in the Guardian.

But not before people who will defend Biden with the same fervor that Republicans defended Trump.

Trust the plan!
 
2021-04-23 11:18:11 AM  
Maybe Joe needed an asshole for the group.
 
2021-04-23 11:19:21 AM  
Just a thought, but I'm pretty sure Biden is playing 5d Chess here. If Biden didn't put this person on the panel then every right wing idiot would point at the panel and say see look nobody on the panel is on our side it's a left wing judicial activist plot to pack the court and turn everyone into transgender satanists and ruin America....

No, you had it right the first time. Republicans will attack him no matter what.

It's sad that both statements can be true at the same time.
 
2021-04-23 11:20:59 AM  
Any chance that this makes it impossible for the right to credibly attack him when he finds that serious reform is needed?

I'll give myself a C- in this case.

Except it doesn't matter. Even if this panel was all right wingers if they did something the GOP didn't agree with they'd point at the panel and say "see look nobody on the panel is on our side it's a left wing judicial activist plot to pack the court and turn everyone into transgender satanists and ruin America...."

Remember Mueller? They all said how great he was and then he started doing the minimal amount of investigating and suddenly he was an angry democrat.

The commission's got 36 members on but somehow this one guy is going to tank the whole thing?

He accepted a spot on Biden's commission, he's a dirty fascist commie socialist now.

I would've been quite happy with a perjury investigation against Ford. Hell, I'd be happy with any investigation at all.

You cannot simultaneously argue that republicans are a threat to democracy and that it's okay to work with them.

It is a bipartisan commission and he is under no obligation to actually act on the person's suggestion.
 
2021-04-23 1:31:24 PM  

SirGunslinger: It is a bipartisan commission ...


In name. But I think it is being set up to say that the court should be expanded. That is what the Dems need right now. Unless Biden and others want them to say no. Then Biden does not have to push for an expansion. None of us know the true behind-the-scenes reasons.

It is hard to say, it could be a way to buy time until somehow/someway the filibuster is eliminated to push the bill through while still appearing to push along in that direction, it could be a way to root out exactly what talking points/propaganda the Republicans will use, or it could be a way to let the idea fizzle out. Honestly, I'm not sure.

I was sitting here racking my brain to remember what Gerald Ford lied about under oath. Now I realize Chagrin obviously meant to say a perjury investigation against Justice Douchebro McKegstand.
