It’s funny how the definition of court packing, according to the libs is now filling a vacant seat but then they are literally calling for more justices to be added when they get in power.

I guess Conspiracy Bro at work just wants to find some reason to rag on ACB, because anytime she comes up he has to say something about how she's obviously a witch, because she just looks like a witch. Which (har-har) is a full step below the inanity of most of what he says.  rolleyes

Also, how stupid can these people be? This stupid:

ACB needs to use this line at least once during the hearings:

I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul.

Interesting tangent: Websters dictionary suddenly changed their definition of "preference" to meet yesterday's liberal outrage. Without stuff like the wayback machine, we would never know this was happening.

Holy crap she is good! Calm and collected in all her answers, yet torching the most jackass of her questioners. All with no notes. She must have like a 200 IQ.

And people on Facebook, the TDSers, are going absolutely nuts that she's not using, or taking, notes.

IT JUST SHOWS SHE KNOWS ITS IN THE BAG! SHE'S IN ON THE CONSPIRACY TO PACK THE COURT!


And a lot worse...

That's my assessment as well. I am a very bright person and I watch her knowing that even though I'm pretty sure I could debate the trained monkeys in the questioner roles with ease, I would be very unlikely to be able to draw up every single case/ruling that she's been doing from memory. And she's been doing it with (apparent) ease. 

Even the things I know, and know I have read, and can call up, I would still want to have notes so I knew I was quoting it correctly or attributing it correctly. That empty notepad really impressed me.

Quoting a democrat icon at the dems?   

The dems probably found that most infuriating. Sort of like the nuns I was stuck with in grammar school when I threw their own words back at them.

Oh, the Dems are finding EVERYTHING most infuriating.

It's just a huge ball of fury.

I predict there won't be a single Democrat to vote for her, either in committee (if they stay and actually vote and don't try to derail things by walking out to deny a quorum) or in the Senate.

When a Dem nominates someone for the court, they DEMAND that everyone vote on the individual's qualifications (and that goes for all Dem nominees, not just for the courts).

But when a Republican, especially ORANGEMANBAD!!! nominates someone, the vote suddenly isn't about the nominee's qualifications, is about the person who nominated them.

Yet another reason why I hate the left and all of their flower children.

Now they are using whiny law students to show how much ACB sucks and doesn't know the law. 

Whenever I need brain surgery, I'm definitely asking for a first year med student to do it.

Oh dear, and here's the smoking gun...

A bus load of Nuns who ACB forced into servitude as her personal teachers over a span of 12 years.... all without her paying them anything, and the whole time while she matriculating shamelessly.

Christ, I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't thinking the same thing.

Although they have managed to get Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on the bench...

"Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., later called originalism a "smokescreen" for "activist" judges,"

OK, my *expletive deleted*ing head just popped at that commnent...

The left has, for 50 years, used the court's activism to get things that they couldn't get legislatively. I'm not taking a stance on whether that is inherently good or bad, but the hypocrisy of such a statement is just stunning.

On the other hand, the Republicans have more seats in the Senate than they did in 2018. Also, the made-up objections to ACB are not nearly as good as the made-up objections to the sinister Brett Kavanaugh.

Yep, not happy at all. Calling for protests. Didn't Pelosi drop hints for protests a couple of weeks ago?

Quote
   Dem CT Sen Blumenthal on Barrett: Our main and last best hope is for the American people to tell my colleagues..vote against this nominee and delay it until after the election. Those protests have to occur outside Washington, or even in the streets.
