    Wasn't derp insisting he's not a Republican?

    Now he wants to replace Lindsey Graham but only if it's another Republican?

    That's a very Republican thing to say. Hmmm. I wonder if he might not have been completely honest.

    I assume that is the easiest level to replace him at. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, Sadbert.

    “2016, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas): “It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don’t do this in an election year.”

    2018, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.): “If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term, and the primary process has started, we’ll wait to the next election.”

    2016, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.): “I don’t think we should be moving on a nominee in the last year of this president’s term - I would say that if it was a Republican president.”

    2016, Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.): “The very balance of our nation’s highest court is in serious jeopardy. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I will do everything in my power to encourage the president and Senate leadership not to start this process until we hear from the American people.”

    2016, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa): “A lifetime appointment that could dramatically impact individual freedoms and change the direction of the court for at least a generation is too important to get bogged down in politics. The American people shouldn’t be denied a voice.”

    2016, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.): “The campaign is already under way. It is essential to the ins ution of the Senate and to the very health of our republic to not launch our nation into a partisan, divisive confirmation battle during the very same time the American people are casting their ballots to elect our next president.”

    2016, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.): “In this election year, the American people will have an opportunity to have their say in the future direction of our country. For this reason, I believe the vacancy left open by Justice Antonin Scalia should not be filled until there is a new president.”

    2016, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.): “The Senate should not confirm a new Supreme Court justice until we have a new president.”

    2016, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col.): “I think we’re too close to the election. The president who is elected in November should be the one who makes this decision.”

    2016, Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio): “I believe the best thing for the country is to trust the American people to weigh in on who should make a lifetime appointment that could reshape the Supreme Court for generations. This wouldn’t be unusual. It is common practice for the Senate to stop acting on lifetime appointments during the last year of a presidential term, and it’s been nearly 80 years since any president was permitted to immediately fill a vacancy that arose in a presidential election year.”

    2016, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.): “I strongly agree that the American people should decide the future direction of the Supreme Court by their votes for president and the majority party in the U.S. Senate.”

    Why would he say that? How dumb unless he actually meant it which seems doubtful.

    The Top Contender for RBG’s Seat Has a Fundamentally Cruel Vision of the Law

    Here’s what we can expect if Trump fills the late justice’s seat.

    The consensus among legal and political analysts is that Judge Amy Coney Barrett, whom Trump placed on a federal appeals court in 2017, is the leading candidate to fill Ginsburg’s seat.

    During her three years on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, Barrett has either written or joined a remarkable number of opinions that harm unpopular and powerless individuals who rely on the judiciary to safeguard their rights.

    Faced with two plausible readings of a law, fact, or precedent,

    Barrett always seems to choose the harsher, stingier interpretation.

    Can job applicants sue employers
    whose policies have a disproportionately deleterious impact on older people? Barrett said no.

    Should courts halt the deportation of an immigrant who faced torture at home? Barrett said no.

    Should they protect refugees denied asylum on the basis of xenophobic prejudice? Barrett said no.

    Should they shield prisoners from unjustified violence by correctional officers? Barrett said no.

    Should minors be allowed to terminate a pregnancy without telling their parents if a judge has found that they’re mature enough to make the decision? Barrett said no.

    Should women be permitted to obtain an abortion upon discovering a severe fetal abnormality? Barrett said no.

    Barrett would cast the fifth vote to either hollow out Roe v. Wade or overturn it altogether. Similarly, there is no doubt that

    Barrett would dramatically expand the Second Amendment, invalidating gun control measures around the country.

    It’s quite possible, perhaps even likely, that within a year of her confirmation,

    Americans will be forbidden from terminating a pregnancy in 21 states

    but permitted to purchase assault weapons and carry firearms in public in every state.


    Abortion and guns, however, are just the beginning

    the Supreme Court will eradicate the entire Affordable Care Act in 2021, stripping health insurance from more than 20 million people.

    Barrett has criticized Roberts’ 2012 opinion saving the law, suggesting she would join the other four conservatives to destroy it root and branch.

    Barrett and her conservative colleagues would also take a machete to the thicket of laws that protect the health and safety of millions of Americans.

    etc
