The turtle represents all republicans/christians in his lies and hypocrisy.
The christians throw in the racism, violence and hatred for free.

Convince me otherwise, christians, or just admit prayers are just another christian lie to waste people's time.

Turtle: I'm lying as hard as I can and the only reason I can't lie harder and wider is the limitations of the communications technology of our time.

Oh how his tone would change if he were the Majority Leader.  Now he's got to sound all reasonable so he can get Manchin and Sinema to do his dirty work for him.

The Martin County coal slurry spill was an accident that occurred after midnight on October 11, 2000 when the bottom of a coal slurry impoundment owned by Massey Energy in Martin County, Kentucky broke into an abandoned underground mine below.[1] The slurry came out of the mine openings, sending an estimated 306,000,000 US gallons (1.16×109 l; 255,000,000 imp gal) of slurry down two tributaries of the Tug Fork River. By morning, Wolf Creek was oozing with the black waste; on Coldwater Fork, a 10-foot (3.0 m) wide stream became a 100-yard (91 m) expanse of thick slurry.

The spill, which contained arsenic and mercury, killed everything in the water.[2] It was over five feet deep in places and covered nearby residents' yards. The spill polluted hundreds of miles (300-500 km) of the Big Sandy River and its tributaries and the Ohio River. The water supply for over 27,000 residents was contaminated, and all aquatic life in Coldwater Fork and Wolf Creek was killed. The spill was 30 times larger than the Exxon Valdez oil spill (12 million US gallons (45,000 m3)) and one of the worst environmental disasters ever in the southeastern United States, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.[3] The spill was exceeded in volume by the Kingston Fossil Plant coal fly ash slurry spill in 2008.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), oversaw the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) at the time. In 2002, a federal penalty of $5,600 was levied against Massey Energy

The noms back then were much less politicized. Ginsburg was confirmed 96-3. Breyer 87-9.

You'd have to be a major shiathead like Clarence Thomas for there to be contention over your appointment.

FTA: ""He had a very distinguished career, one of the most respected members of the Supreme Court in history. And one of the things I liked about him was he was a vigorous opponent of packing the court, that is adding members of the court to try to take advantage of some short-term political gain," he said."

Biden needs to get himself "caught" saying something when his mic is supposedly off like, "and if every farking Republican doesn't vote for my nominee, I swear to Jesus I will pack that court so hard you'll wish my name was Franklin Farking Roosevelt. "

He isn't important. Stop treating him like a leader. He's not. He's been replaced by Trump and Gaetz. Nothing he says is as important as Trump. Leave Kentucky local weekly newsletters to interview him.

I don't think he'll do much talking during this appointment. Of course, he'll never vote for Biden's pick, but I don't think he'll actively block it like the last bunch of times. He knows he has no need to since it really doesn't change the make-up of the court. He knows he already won. He'll say some BS red meat for the Nazi crowd, but other than that I think he'll just vote no and Biden will get his pick through.
I think we'll hear much more volatility from the other members of the Nazi Party as they seek re-election and attempt to avoid death threats from their own constituents.

Assume that Turtle is lying and won't vote to confirm. Assume that all Senate Republicans will also vote no. Quietly threaten Manchin and Sinema with freezing the one thing in life they care about - their money - if they don't vote to confirm.

Then nominate Angela Davis for the court.

There is a difference between christians and Christians , if you haven't been keeping up with current events. christians worship trump. CHristians worship god/Jesus. Given that Christians have not loudly stated that christians are not part of their group, I can only assume that all of them are the same.

I would say  that is is enormously ignorant if you think that a bunch of mental defectives who say that they represent your group without response does not paint the entire group of Christians as just a bunch of f*cked up lying sacks of shiat.

Continue living in your fantasy world if you think that Jesus wouldn't have a bit of a problem with all christians siding with a pathologically lying, raping, ignorant, racist, amoral sack of shiat. Satisfying to know that my understanding that all christians have no understanding of the New Testament is absolutely true.

Keep supporting them to prove that I am always right.

When I'm sitting on the john, wondering what it would take to get assholes like old Turtledick to start putting country first, all I can come up with is that they have no fear of consequences and need to be taught some. Lying, cheating, hypocritical, traitorous behavior, and they just get richer and richer, with more power by the day... safe and secure knowing nothing more than a slap on the wrist will ever come to them.  I keep thinking we need to set up a group with a catchy nickname, something like 2nd Terminal Solutions, that is essentially a glorified go-fund-me for the families of terminally ill patients willing to pop a cap in these farkwads and finally put some fear of consequences in them. Sure, it would essentially be a hitman service, but instead of paying the hitman it would pay out their families. I can see it now... Johnny has two months left to live and all he wants to do is shake the hand of the great Turtledick. Some NPO sets up the meet and greet and they wheel Johnny to meet Turtledick, who is standing and smiling in front of the press. Turtledick leans down, shakes the man's hand, and turns to pose for the cameras. Blam!! He collapses to his knees with a gaping chest wound and blood trickling from the corners of his mouth. But he's half-turtle, so it's gonna take more than that. Blam-blam!! Two to the cranium, just before Johnny wheelchair is bowled over and he's dogpiled by security. Somewhere, miles away, Turtledick's name gets crossed of the list of 'assholes who deserve what's coming to them' and million dollars are released to Johnny's heirs and dependents. At trail, Johnny explains that unless duplicitous assholes like Turtledick start doing right by the people, none of them will be safe anymore. And just like that, a few dickheads start re-assessing how certain they are that they can continue ass-farking America without consequence. If every terminally ill patient knew they could provide for their family and help rid the world of these cretins, I can only imagine how much creative Hector Salamanca type-shiat would go down.

/for any lurking FBI agents, the above is not to be taken seriously
//it's not even my idea

////and home much these dickfarks get away with
