How the living fark do you put farking HAWLEY on a committee about the judiciary. Maybe mitch is going senile and thought it meant in front of the judiciary?

I'm not sure anything will match the shiatshow that was beer bro's confirmation, but I'm sure there will be an attempt at better material.

Did you hear Biden is going to nominate a black woman?

Holy shiat, the GOP roster is nothing but grandstanding prima donnas and traitors.  Their "questions" are gonna be hyperventilating libertarian floor shows.  farking Cotton and Hawley, can you believe that shiat?

You don't even really need to have hearings. The McConnell Standard for SCOTUS confirmation votes is 8 days.

8 days. 50+1 votes. Lifetime appointment. This is the McConnell standard and literally zero republicans can object to this.

Is Sasse coming up for re-election yet? If he's in serious danger of being primaried, he'll cave to the rest of the party. If he feels his seat is safe, he might decide to spite the Party of Trump for shiats and grins.

Manchin was a governor, and has said before that he usually defers to the executive office when it comes to their nominations. Obviously there are exceptions, but I don't think he'll bat an eye with whoever Biden nominates. Sinema will probably give Mitch the chamber before he has a chance though

He's sadly the best bet on the R-side to be "convinced" to let a nomination go through. Does the Platte River still like to destroy infrastructure on occasion? Also, how's the internet connectivity west of Lincoln?

People call me a pessimist about the future of humanity. The easy evidence to support my case is to just look at the anti-life people on the republican side and the democrats put up the old senile lady feinstein to suck their dicks.

dianne is a an old lady who is well beyond her prime. The republicans are all full of hate for America. So that's going to go well. They will select a worm like garland and life will continue on its downward path.

BTW, f*ck you all christians. You are the cause of all evil in America.

There was extenuating circumstances for the need to fill that seat in 8 days. The National Security of the country was at stake, we were still at war in Afghanistan and were on the cusp of victory.

There is no way in any of the seven hells that Biden gets any SC nominee confirmed.

it's funny to see the Fark FAKE "progressives" position on Biden's SCOTUS Justice pick is identical to the GOPs position.

I am so shocked...

She'll get confirmed. Definitely. It doesn't matter to Rethuglicans because they still have 6 cronies to outnumber everyone else.

It doesn't affect the material makeup of the Court but I still expect farkery and a 7-2 majority at the end of this shiatshow.

And when trump gets back in in 2024 they'll either make up a flimsy reason to impeach her or stack a few more sociopaths on the court, nullifying her.

I was dealing with a 4-day-old baby when ACB's confirmation hearings started so I obviously wasn't watching. Months later, I heard about the hug and a general sense the she was losing it. Can someone give me a 2-minute recap of how out to lunch Dianne was? Was it worse than McCain during Comey's testimony?

/She needs to call up Newsom, tell him to pick somebody, and leave the Senate floor like 1 second before the replacement can be sworn in.

I hope they embarrass themselves enough to lose a few more mideterm votes among the dwindling percentage of Republicans left who aren't racist shiatheads. If they use this as a cause for grandstanding then between this and their rejection of the voting rights bill, it will just be one more nail in their coffin that will galvanize more democrats to get out and vote.
