Agreed, the high school thing is very, very weak.

However; there was a real blow against democracy when Obama was denied his appointment to the Supreme Court for political reasons.

This candidate will be appointed but, the partisanship and blocking will continue elsewhere as memories are lengthy and revenge for prior injustices are sought.
In the meantime, the court is supposed to be separate from the executive and legislative branches and not politicized.

The partisans better be careful because such behavior does come back to haunt. Even these appointments can become "undone".

Naw. The blow to our Republic occured with the passage of the 17th Amendment (The country lost a branch of govt) in 1913 and the Apportionment Act of 1929.

OR perhaps the passage of the ACA without knowing what was in the bill. Ya known that whole "..pass it so we can see what's in it.."

Well very likely 1 more assuming he wins next election. Which would still be epic. Especially if he picks another person in their 50s.

Think again. Democracy being exercised is exactly how (and why) Obama's last appointment failed to be confirmed.

How can SCOTUS appointments be undone? Was thinking they were irreversible, and lifetime? (Or beyond - considering Ginsberg)

She sent the bombshell letter to the FBI for an 'Investigation'.

That was yesterday.
The FBI has already replied.

Oh wow man. Where'd you get that shite?

Just heard about this today. This really pisses me off. I dont particularity like Kavanagh based on his rulings and opinions, but he seems like a pretty decent guy, ideological differences aside. As much as I think we should support women who are assaulted, abused, etc. and do everything we can to help them come forward and to prosecute the jerks who do this stuff, this business of saying nothing for 30 years and then pouncing at the last minute to grenade someone's life to maximum effect has got to stop. There should be time limits on reporting this sort of thing and harsh penalties for those who falsely accuse. It's gotten way out of hand.

He just told Feinstein, The NYT and The New Yorker to pound sand.

From National Review.

Dianne Feinstein’s Rank Illiberalism.

Perhaps that trendy phrase about democracy dying in darkness should be Senator Feinstein’s campaign slogan?

What Senator Feinstein is currently doing to Brett Kavanaugh is evil. Yes, it is evil. It is antediluvian. It is dangerous. It is illiberal. It sits well, well outside of the American tradition, harking back to a time in which the accused were simply carted off — or shunned by polite society — ten minutes after someone prominent offered up a vague claim about them. In America, we require that our accusers make themselves known, that their accusations be offered in detail and in public, and that the accused be apprised of everything that has been leveled against them — and we require this not just within formal legal environments, but in general. Within the American tradition, these requirements are considered a prerequisite to fairness — both inside and outside the courtroom. As has become fashionable lately within her party and her state, Senator Feinstein is stamping all over those traditions, and doing so for political advantage.

Worse still, Senator Feinstein is engaged a brazen attempt to have it both ways: She wants the consequences of an accusation without any of the attendant process. Or, put more bluntly, Senator Feinstein wants to be imbued with the power to point her finger at other people and to mark them as tainted, as unacceptable, as excommunicated. That will not stand — today, tomorrow, ever.



Dark days.

Sad to read some of the replies to that post though. Talk about mind controlled idiot loons.

Mission accomplished however, Feinstein tarnished his name and the mind controlled sheep dipped loons sucked it up and now believe unequivocally that he assaults women. What a fucked up world.
