Yeah, itís really bad. McConnell is worse than trump, they will somehow get another justice on the bench. Theyíre ruthless and good at dirty politics

He’s up this year and he’s going to cruise. It isn’t relevant at all, the Democratic party is so bad at politics they put a dyke and a black on the ballot against McConnell. If Sherrod brown was the model for midwestern and southern Dems they’d win elections

Thank God for Biden, he actually has a chance to win this thing. Had it been bloombergstein or booker trump would’ve won every state not on the west coast

Ted Cruz's handlers made the good point that without an odd number of justices the Supreme Court is likely to deadlock after the inevitable legal challenge to Trump's handlers' landslide victory, leading to a Constitutional crisis.

In other news, Biden is now directly reading his handlers' lines during INTERVIEWS (warning: rather obnoxious video). The point is not so much that Biden has dementia as that it's all a show.

If you think Trump is going to win a rigged election, good luck.

Itís like when your sibling told you not to eat the last Oreo, they then go eat that Oreo because youíre gullible and smooth brained. SCOTUS isnít a game, this isnít dirty politics this is real life where people donít care about your feelings. You play to win the game.

Luckily, people will come to terms with this and won't call for more rioting just because political winds aren't blowing in their favor-annnnnnd, this is why we can't have nice things

But would they support a lame duck session confirmation?

Ah, well, nevertheless!

There was a solid understanding for many years - a sort of peace when it came to fucking with the Supreme Court and its balance. This was violated in 2016. There will be retribution - probably not now, but sometime.

What is this BS "balance" concept you speak of? The courts are about JUSTICE.

The Supreme Court's job is to properly interpret and uphold the Constitution.

When the court makes a decision it isn't about balancing political interests. You have 9 justices it's intended to NOT be balanced so they can make the RIGHT decision on cases. Not some political compromise based on the the culture's current zeitgeist.
