Lock Up His Mouth

Violating every pretense that the attorney general of the United States is an independent non-partisan law-enforcement officer, Jeff Sessions gave a speech before a group of young conservatives where he joined a chant about Hillary Clinton concerning her emails: “lock her up.”

  1. The Supreme Court served as an exceptional example of how the Democratic Party possesses not even a dollop of common sense. Dubya finishes eight years. Barack Obama gets elected. What do the Dems do? Sit on their asses as the clock runs out. Obama’s second term starts. What do they do? Sit on their asses some more. Ginsberg and Breyer don’t retire.

    Now, Breyer and Ginsberg are 79 and 85, respectively. If Trump wins re-election, Ginsberg would have to make it to her mid-90s, Breyer to his late 80s. And they BOTH have to live. Once Kavanaugh (a youthful 53) gets on the court, it’s be a 5-4 conservative split. If either Breyer or Ginsberg leaves, that’s it. Game over. It’ll be a 6-3 or even a 7-2 court for at least 10 years.

    But don’t worry. The conserative side has Alito and Thomas (68 and 70). If Trump wins re-election in 2020, they’ll bother retire in 2022 so that two conservatives in their late 40s/early 50s can be appointed. That’ll ensure a conservative leaning for at least 25 more years.

    If only Hillary had been able to rig the elections properly. She might be a corporate tool and a warhawk (she has the two essential qualifications: she never served and her children never did either, just like her husband, and Dubya and Reagan) but I suspect she would have at least appointed justices at least a little to the left of center.

    If Sanders wins in 2020, I hope he appoints only vegan triathletes who are in their 20s and whose grandparents all died in their late 90s.

    • Damn you, Mr. Tired!

      You went and made me depressed, mostly ‘cuz I think you’re right.

      🙁 🙂 😀 🙂 🙁

      We made great progress in civil rights over the last two-anna-half centuries. I’m afraid that 2016 might have been the high-water mark, and it’s all downhill from here.

      (“Downstream“? – damn but I mix a mean metaphor)

      • So, when the going gets tough, the tough pout and give up? You must be one of these Millennials I keep hearing about.

  2. We lost the supreme court nearly twenty years ago. The GOP gave up all pretense early in the Clinton admin.

    The good news is that the more time they spend fighting each other, the less time they have to screw over We duh People.
