Sounds good. Let's apply that to Congress too.

Maybe, seriously, it is time to do away with the Supreme Court. It has lost all credibility as a non-partisan entity. Nobody seriously believes most of the people on the court, such as Thomas or Kavanaugh, are moral, ethical or even decent people. Just political hacks. If the Supreme Court is going to continue to be a political body, then it should be an elected position where Justices must win the popular vote of national elections. At least then all pretense of them somehow being above politics would be flushed down the toilet.

Eff off with that you extreme partisan POS.

You are butt reamed over an illegally leaked draft that leaves a legislative remedy for what you want.

Wanna slaughter the unborn?

Craft a law that does so. Of course accomplishing that requires your repugnant political party win elections. But you are reviled for good reason

LMAO when she and every other senator/congressman give up the same, I may listen to that dried up hack. Until then, It's nothing but hypocrisy.

"Just win elections!*

*in a system that is rigged for the other side in every possible way

You're doing victory dance like you won something when the ref gives your team a 14 point lead from kickoff.
