The SCOTUS Circus

Posted on | September 21, 2020 | 1 Comment

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was, uh, mourned by liberals who gathered in Washington, D.C., and spontaneously began singing John Lennon’s “Imagine” — an interesting choice:

Imagine there’s no heaven.
It’s easy if you try.
No hell below us.
Above us only sky.

An atheist hymn for an atheist’s death in an atheist world, I suppose.

By Sunday morning, the Satanic Left had recovered from their grief sufficiently for Nancy Pelosi to go on ABC and vow to do everything possible to prevent President Trump from replacing RBG.

Of course, nothing in the Constitution assigns the House of Representatives any role whatsoever in judicial nominations, but since when has Nancy Pelosi cared about the Constitution?

Doug Bandow predicts a no-holds barred fight over the nomination of RBG’s successor, and says Republicans have every advantage in the fight.

Stephen Kruiser says Democrats are about to discover that payback is a bitch: “Whatever grief the Democrats get in the next month or two was brought about by their treatment of Brett Kavanaugh two years ago. Their behavior towards Kavanaugh was abominable and unforgivable.”

Joe Biden . . . Well, what did you expect him to say?

David Catron looks at the likely nominee:

Amy Coney Barrett isn’t the only jurist on President Trump’s list of potential successors to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, but she is certainly the most feared by the left. This became clear in 2017, when Trump nominated her for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. During her Senate confirmation hearing, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee subjected her to a de facto inquisition, complete with outrageous inquiries concerning her Catholicism. Barrett’s response was eminently judicial: “It’s never appropriate for a judge to impose personal convictions, whether they derive from faith or anywhere else, on the law.”
Regrettably, Judge Barrett’s remarkable forbearance during that 2017 interrogation probably hasn’t rendered her immune from the kind of character assassination to which any jurist nominated by President Trump to replace Ginsburg will be subjected. . . .

Read the rest at The American Spectator.

I’ve already been in touch with Gloria Allred to tell her that, one drunken night long ago, Amy Coney Barrett raped me. Where’s my book deal?
