horsefeathers, Hardiman is by no means a good pick, but it would be a minor horsefeathering miracle if this whole nightmare resulted "only" in him replacing Kennedy.

Getting to define the relevant terms is most of the battle

The important question is whether the GOP can exist as a Whites only party and still win elections. I suspect in a world where voter suppression didn't exist it couldn't. I fear for our country.

I know, I know, this will read like wish fulfillment to some. Just some light reading to cleanse the palate of the images of children being ripped away from their parents.

So President horsefeathers is making his Supreme Court pick at 9 EDT. Hardiman is the best we can hope for right?

Check out this hypocrisy:

Vox reviewed recruiting files submitted to the US Department of Labor for two Trump properties in Florida (including Mar-a-Lago) and one in New York from the start of 2016 through the end of 2017. In that period, hiring managers said they were able to find and hire only one qualified American worker — a cook — for 144 open positions for servers, cooks, housekeepers, and bartenders.

Under the H-2B program, employers must first try to hire American workers — or legal immigrants already in the United States — at reasonable wages for their openings. If they can’t find qualified US workers, then employers can ask the Department of Labor for permission to hire foreign guest workers on H-2B visas. Documents show that hiring managers at the Trump establishments made the minimum efforts required by law to recruit US workers.

While many businesses may truly struggle to find local workers and rely on foreign workers to fill slots, the hiring practices at Trump’s properties certainly are out of step with his “America First” rhetoric and policies.

Yup. And it's not even close, IMO (and it's really, really, really horsefeathering depressing to say that).

We live in some alternate dimension or something. I still refuse to believe that this mothereffer is actually the President of the United States. My brain still refuses to process it as reality.

This probably will not ease your nerves.



It’s time to accept that the GOP is probably working with a foreign government to maintain power in the United States.

He will vote the way that the Republican Party wants him to vote, same as anybody else they would have nominated.

Isn't he the one who said indicting a sitting president would cripple the country and shouldn't be done. I am sure trump didn't care at all about that.
