Dems, keep this going! Check every damned word he’s written and everything else to be had. Maybe they’ll get him in before the election, but maybe, just maybe, we’ll get lucky!

He must have been in Putin’s pay for quite a while. He authored a decision about foreign nationals putting money into our elections–it is constitutionally barred–but he carved out a special place for them to spend on “advocacy groups”–e.g. the Russian Troll Factory, which is now using his decision to claim their indictments should be thrown out.

The election does not mean an immediate transfer of power in the Congress. The old boys are still in until January. Mitch could still slide him in in December.

“I will not allow taxpayers to be on the hook for a government-funded fishing expedition,” Grassley said.

“Unless it has to do with Hillary,” he went on to say.

Hi AP - this might have been a good article to display your famous ‘both-siderism’ - but I guess you forgot this time. But it’s an interesting, horsey reference to 'stables of attorneys" rather than the usual ‘teams’ or a more military ‘phalanx’. No doubt this is an oblique reference to all the stability in DC. a literary nod to the rational, sane events that you are unfolding for us.

Or any “Democrat” nominee…

Grassley isn’t playing a rational hand here. Kagan and Gorsuch didn’t have decades of highly disruptive policy roles that laid the foundations for where we are today. The Supreme Court might be a reward for his years in the right-wing trenches, but those years are also going to reveal his mindset, and that’s (hopefully) going to be fatal.

As for the good ol’ boys shoving him through, “The American people have spoken and they have clearly stated that they don’t want any part of Trump’s destructive agenda.” (please god.) Lather, rinse, repeat.

Yeah, I know. Still, the longer it drags on, the more chances for something to go awry.

The guy got himself 200,000 bucks in debt over friggin’ baseball tickets. That right there is enough to not confirm him.

His initial approval rating from the public is the worst ever seen.

Only a positive 4.

Even Harriet Fucking Miers was a positive 9, initially.

We can BEAT this asshole. Never give UP!!!

There is something about this guy that is right under the surface, like a drug addiction or a second wife and family, give it a little time it will come out. I don’t think he will be confirmed.

He’s a Washington Insider, so you know that he’s been bought and paid for by only the best K Street lobbyists. Those $200k baseball tickets are only the tip of the iceberg. I’d start with any of the casino owners/gambling interests and work back from there.

The Koch Brothers probably still haven’t weaned him from their teats. Check into any of his Russian connections. Wouldn’t be surprised if he hasn’t been in contact with one or two Russian prostitutes. Birds of a feather and all that.

Trump will complain that he is being treated 'unfairly’.
Ever notice that Trump uses ‘unfairly’ in the majority of his arguments or pardons or tirades?
China treats the US ‘unfairly’ when it comes to trade.
Arpaio, Libby, D’Souza and the Hammonds… all treated ‘unfairly’, even though many have CONFESSED to a crime.
Mainstream media treats him ‘unfairly’.
Democrats treat his nominees ‘unfairly’.
Michael (I confess) Flynn - treated ‘unfairly’.
Judges hearing cases against him (or for finding for his opposition), acting ‘unfairly’.
Ivanka treated ‘unfairly’ by Nordstrom.
There are dozens of others… really getting old, carrot cranium.
