Will he be able to nail the necessary tone of sneering triumphalism that emphasis that ‘we’ve railroaded through a revoltingly hyper-partisan zealot to skew the entire justice system for a generation, and there’s nothing you can do about it’?

All of the news about staff remaining to help with the Supreme Court nomination process seems a bit suspect. Is this just giving them cover to stay with the administration longer because they can’t get jobs elsewhere? In Shah’s case, he probably hopes to be associated with something, anything, that has a more positive outcome.

Why yes, . . . he will. He has, after all, been working with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, one of the best “sneerers” of all times.

“Teams of attorneys from the White House Counsel’s Office and Department of Justice are working to ensure the President has all the information he needs to choose his nominee.”

How many people does it take to give the former reality tv show host the information: “This nominee will protect you from being convicted of any of the hundreds of crimes you’ve committed.”

Because, after all, that’s what matters.

Not all attorneys can handle the crayons or fingerpaints necessary to explain Certiorari to Cheetohlini.

It’s going to be 56-43 to confirm with McCain staying home due to his medical issues.

Heitkamp, Donnelly and Manchin defect for sure. A couple others will follow when they see the head count previous to the vote.

“My talented lying is needed elsewhere at the moment.”

And then Heitkamp, Donnelly, and Manchin will lose their reelection bids. There is a democratic base in those states, contrary to popular belief.

He needs to pause his lying to go somewhere else for the illegitimate president to do more lying.

“Stare Decisis” just doesn’t sound good in a Huckabee accent. Also, saying “Look, clearly the president is not going to take either abortion or gay rights into consideration when carefully weighing his options, as I’ve said repeatedly, and I don’t know what I can add to that since you have trouble understanding even short words in short sentences” just doesn’t have the gravitas trump’s selling, so it’s time to switch up the lineup just until we get er done.

The Gorilla in the room, which everyone avoids talking about: What should be changed in the Constitution to avoid this situation in the future ?
It’s a good thing that Trump is a stupid, weak and ineffective leader (but still very damaging), but what if was a really smart, industrious evil person ? You would get zapped in no time. Something got to change !
