    Ruth Bader Ginsberg passes on at 87

    The ethics matter was known per every account I’ve read, including four I skimmed this morning. Here's one of those. It was bipartisan by definition, and dismissing all the Democrats that voted against cloture as racists seems to come out of left field. Racial issues aren't mentioned in any...

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg passes on at 87

    It was bipartisan with almost as many Democrats voting against cloture as Republicans. He had ethics issues. That wasn’t much of a first stone.

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg passes on at 87

    Democrats and Republicans struck a compromise to allow for those confirmations after those unprecedented filibusters. They didn’t exercise the “nuclear option.” I’ve been against filibusters of any Presidential nominees all along, but the history of the tit for tat on judicial nominees is what...

    No it wasn’t.

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg passes on at 87

    After unprecedented filibusters of President Bush’s judicial nominations. It’s been tit for tat.

    Guess McConnell is taking a page from Obama..

    I'm saying those "vast wastelands of nothingness" are full of working class middle Americans - the people that used to be the Democratic party base. Truman and Carter Democrats. Democrats like those I grew up with. Former Democrats like me.

    This arrogant, condescending, elitist attitude of many liberals is what makes liberalism and, by extension, the Democratic party so unappealing to so many.

    Nice article on Judge Amy Coney Barrett

    Democrats' unprecedented filibusters of President Bush's judicial nominees wasn't a factor? Reid ending the filibuster for all but USSC judicial nominees wasn't a factor? Schumer leading a filibuster of Gorsuch wasn't a factor? Yes, there were actions and reactions by Republicans in this process...

    Blue United States of America would be pretty fractured.

    I was just throwing it out there. I think PR could be admitted as a state, but it will likely take admitting another state that is likely less Democratic as a compromise.

    Nice article on Judge Amy Coney Barrett

    Incidentally, HRC didn’t win the majority of the votes either. Bush (once) and Obama are the only candidates to win a majority of the vote since 1988. Perot was a nut. Probably cost GHW Bush his re-election, but whether he did or not, he was a nut. ;)

    Bill Clinton didn’t win a majority of votes in either of his elections. Just sayin’.

    So bring in Democratic Puerto Rico and a Republican Northern California and we have classic American political compromise. Wouldn't that be nice?

    DC doesn't need to be a state, just make it part of Virginia and/or Maryland. Problem solved. Puerto Rico eventually should be a state, I think. California would be better as two or three states. I suspect Democrats would benefit from all this, most likely, but it might not be as drastically as...

    I normally got up at 0500, but my memory is getting up about 0300 that day. Clear as could be too. I’m doubting my memory now because wives are never wrong. Yes, Dear! ;)
