Isn't this a felony?

One of my brothers shared with me his fear that armed Trump supporters would terrorize voting sites in Democratic-heavy areas in the 2018 mid-terms. I nodded and internally dismissed it as Alarmist Non-sense.

That said, it is 2020, Trump is actually running in this one, the rule of law people are an existential threat to them, so who knows what's gonna happen in the next 45 days.

The Bulwark emergency podcast this morning was really interesting.   I'm still listening to it.  The net/net they think Trump pushes it through and Mitch knows he is losing so this will be his final f' you to America.   The turbulence of the Georgia Senate elections adds to the drama.

We probably mostly agree on this, but my point is that this above is pretty crucial context... I don't know that it is reasonable to expect folks to just focus on the balls and strikes of whether it is right or wrong while blowing off the hypocrisy of the guy currently doing the "right" thing who did the wrong thing in 2016 out of political expedience.

It's just really a disingenuous argument to me

He’s just blatantly being a hypocrite which is why I am ok with going against my own standard. He’s doing what he wants because he can.  He should just say that rather than come up with stupid reasons based on a flimsy made up standard.  I want to go on record that he should not do this because of his previous standard even if I thought that was wrong at the time. It’s not a case of two wrongs making a right but established standards by the person enforcing them. 
 

going forward each term there should be some agreement made between the leadership of each party that establishes the line.  Is it when the primaries start?  When the conventions start?  I don’t know.  Are lame duck sessions off the table?  They should make those agreements but they won’t because they like the politics of it.

Breyer is 82, Thomas is 72, Alito is 70. At least one of those three will be gone in the next 4 year. I’m guessing there may be a 50-50 chance all three will not be on the court in 2024

Harris as a star senator on the Judiciary Committee... How do potential hearings affect things from that standpoint?

This is what Trump actually said in North Carolina, addressing the women in the crowd at his rally - 

===========================

Trump pretended to poll the crowd on who to nominate when he apparently recognized some of the women in Fayetteville from other rallies. “Ok let’s do a poll. Oh there they are. How many of these have you come to?” he said. “What is this, number what? Like, 90? I see ‘em all over the place, they’re great. I hope your husbands are okay with it. Are they okay?”

==========================

“I hope your husbands are okay with it”??????  

WTF?  

Ugh. Welcome to 1950.

Barbara Lagoa would be an interesting choice.  i doubt people's votes are really influenced by the racial makeup of supreme court nominees, but the republicans trying to build on some of their recent gains with hispanics would be interesting.

i think it's going to be Barrett.  after diane feinstein's clown show during her 7th circuit hearings, she has a bit of a celebrity status and will do well to further motivate the evangelicals to get out and vote.

trump should nominate a white dude just to totally troll the left.

To the extent it would matter, it would probably be limited to Florida.

miami dade was trending toward trump last time i saw.  cubans migrating back to their natural gop home.

the rest of the hispanic population in florida that is not cuban may not care that a cuban got nominated.  in fact, they may hold it against trump.  people who dont actually know hispanics think theyre one single united bloc, but there are big differences between them.  

and nobody likes cubans.
