A 46-year-old religious extremist who’s been a judge for one year and a longtime partisan hack. Fuck.

The days of looking for someone withlegal knowledge is over… just need to be a political hack with preconceived thoughts on important legal questions. Perhaps that is better than Roberts lying about his support for precedent.

Seriously. Watch the film RBG about how Justice Ginsburg was confirmed. You’ll feel like it’s from a different country, with another Orrin Hatch, who is civil and smart.

I predict the “newcomer” - she’s in the Clarence Thomas “token” mold, plus she’s younger.

That was expected though. Fuck Kennedy again. Sideways. With a transvaginal ultrasound probe.

Both of these seem a little old to meet the standard of being on the bench for 45 years.

All we can hope for is another Earl Warren - appointed as a conservative, but found his soul once he was on the bench. But Warren was virtually a socialist by current Republican standards, even before his tenure on SCOTUS. It looks as if these two hacks would have to develop thought-altering brain tumors before they’d come around.

What happened to Mike Lee? Fuck this “Cirque de Soul Fail”. It’s another Trump/Media sideshow. 2000 kids are still separated from their parents and Trump’s about to blow up Nato and do more colluding with Putin.

This whole thing makes me sick. Again. These extremists FKS are not out to ‘make America great again’…they are out to destroy everything that makes America great. I am appalled at the number of entitles conservatives who honest to God believe that they have the RIGHT to decide other people’s thoughts, actions and beliefs. They alone ‘know’ who is lying and who is not. Yesterday’s hearing with Jim Jordon is enough to get you to the streets. The stealing of a Supreme Court seat and the filling of another with ideologues should be enough to keep you on the streets.

Oh, Trump will pick the “woman” so he gets “cover” for reversing “Roe vs. Wade”.

No doubt about it. He will then, during the 1-day confirmation hearing, pound anyone opposing her as “sexist” and “anti-woman”.

Bet money on it.

I saw RBG this weekend, and Hatch was an asshole then, he’s a bigger one now. Does the intensity of being an asshole come from age or longevity in Congress?

That “younger” comment was made about appointing Justices during the campaign, as @arc_of_the_universe said Fuck.

I thought Hatch comes across as MUCH more appreciative then than now to noble opposition. You didn’t?

Is anyone else seeing the irony of Ireland voting to get rid of their abortion ban and we are now in the midst of fighting to preserve access in this country?

I am not sure I find it ironic. Seems more like we are hanging on the brink of the abyss by a few fingers and the edge is crumbling.
