Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 19, 2020

In all of American history, we have had only two Supreme Court vacancies closer to Election Day than we have now. In both instances, the incumbent president won reelection and nominated a replacement shortly after Election Day.

So what?

Trump's whole path to success in life is doing the thing that was previously unheard of. The thing that people would have outlawed if they had had the foresight to predict a leader as sinister as him would get elected.

Trump is a moron who's great at finding holes in the system to exploit.

Funny thing is, if the republicans rush through a vote, they are showing how little confidence they have in ------- being reelected.

Willoby, your incoherent attempts at insults by modifying the word "Democrat" make you look like a moron who in real life is probably incapable of more than the most basic of communication. Let me guess, fork lift operator? Ditch digger? No shame in manual labor of course but I'm guessing it's all you are capable of. One day a robot will replace you.

Robots will replace intellectual workers faster.
The future is
UBI, people stay home and mechanical slaves work. Until they wise up that they don't need us. Then most expendable people will be purged.

Human dignity is a rapidly disappearing phenomenon,like the natural world.

Unless you are black then forget it. If you are black it's the people's job to fill an empty scotus seat. White people's privilege.

I agree, Mitch McConnell has proven he does not.

Oh look at the deplorables trying to justify Trumpy and the Republican hypocrisy by quoting someone's words. Someone with honor.

You don't get to hold someone to their word if you never keep yours.

Crawl back in your holes. We already know what Republicans will do. Just shut up and do it. And we will do what we do. Vote. Like our lives depend on it.

The hypocrisy of Republicans is disgusting to watch.

His job is also includes protecting Americans.

A job he has failed at miserably.

Over 200,000 dead Americans today due to Trumpy's Criminal negligence.

It's enough to make a proud boy proud.

NINE months before the 2016 election.

And a reminder that McConnell held up dozens of Obama's federal court appointments during his second term so he could spend Trump's presidency filling them. And accomplishing NOTHING else.

The GOP will be sorry if they jam this through. The Dems with Joe as POTUS, and with the House and the Senate can and should expand SCOTUS to 13 or 15 seats, and limit terms to 18 years. That way, the court becomes MUCH less of a GOP political football. The founding fathers never meant for SCOTUS to be politicized the way the GOP has made it. These are moves the Dems can make, and SCOTUS cannot overturn them. The Dem candidate has won the majority of votes in six of the past seven elections, yet Dem nominees will be outnumbered on the court 6-3, that's not right. The GOP is quickly becoming a minority party; SCOTUS should not so over-represent the minority and limit attempts by the majority to govern.

Then Dems should expand all the federal courts by about a third to water down the Dotard effect.

Either that or they could shrink SCOTUS to 7 justices. With the most recent additions, the rapist and the radically unfit GOP operative that dime-store slurring Mussolini is about to nominate being removed.

Dems can and should impeach and remove judge Keg anyway because he lied in his Senate hearing.

The point is that quote was true, but Republicans failed to abide by it. They said a nomination in MARCH was too close to the election. But now a nomination in SEPTEMBER is not.

Ruth was right. And had Republicans agreed with her, nobody would be saying anything right now.

#39 the stupid ankle biter thing is t cute, though.

Of course I don't expect my posts to make a difference. Somebody who could so shamelessly use her words to promote the current power grab to cement minority rule is too vile to care how vile they are.

My only intention is that they don't get a free pass and that at least somebody informs them of their status and the complete incompatibility of their views and the patriotism they claim to hold.

Willowby's (and a few others here) political opinions are indistinguishable from Russian propaganda.

The Russians knew what they were doing when they co-opted the NRA.

They've got the Proud Boys who fancy themselves American Patriots feeding directly from Putin's hand.

Truly a sight to behold. Birds of an authoritarian feather flock together.

I think Trump wants to hurry up and fill it because he knows he's out in Nov. Keep that pot stirred.
