SCOTUS

Beg Your Pardon, Susan Collins?

It's your Sunday show rundown!

Earlier this week, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer informed President Joe Biden of his coming retirement in June. Thus begins another SCOTUS confirmation and the return of ... The Ghouls of SCOTUS Nominations Past!


ABC's "This Week"

Maine's Senator Susan Collins, fresh from showing her doorknob collection to her niece Samantha, decided to try to set up her excuse for her eventual "NO" vote on the very qualified yet still to be determined SCOTUS nominee.



After giving empty platitudes, Collins proceeded to pull bullshit reasons out of nowhere for why she will object to this nomination.

COLLINS: [...] But the way that the president has handled this nomination has been clumsy at best. It adds to the further perception that the court is a political institution like Congress when it is not supposed to be.

Appointments to the Supreme Court are NOT political? We beg to differ, Susan. As George Stephanopoulos pointed out to Collins, Ronald Reagan said he would appoint a woman before he selected Sandra Day O'Connor and Trump announced he would pick a woman within hours of RBG's passing. Biden announcing he would select a Black woman to fill a SCOTUS vacancy, whether as president or candidate, is no different. But Collins continued trying to insist otherwise.

Biden Loses 2024 Election To Imaginary Faceless Republican, Beats All The Ones With Faces

There's a lesson in here.

Politico/Morning Consult is out with one of those so-called "polls" they do, to find out what Americans so-called "think" about "things." As we all know, the Beltway media is all doom and gloom about the Democrats' prospects from here until the end of time, but this poll is here to tell us it might not be all that bad.

If the 2024 election were held today — and to be clear, it is not being held today — Joe Biden would lose, were he matched up with an imaginary, nameless, faceless, headless Republican. Indeed, he'd lose by nine points (46 to 37) to Imaginary Headless Faceless Republican! The trouble comes in for Republicans when they have names and faces and personalities and voices and heads. Then everybody hates them, or at least likes them much less.

Chuck Schumer: Nice Filibuster You Got There. Shame If Something Were To Happen To It.

DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

"The Senate was designed to protect the political rights of the minority in the chamber, through the promise of debate and the opportunity to amend. But over the years, those rights have been warped and contorted to obstruct and embarrass the will of majority – something our Founders explicitly opposed."

Thus spake Chuck Schumer in a Dear Colleague letter sent this morning. The Senate majority leader is putting down a marker on voting rights legislation, threatening to amend the filibuster if Republicans continue to block any bill ensuring ballot access as gerrymandered state legislatures throw up obstacles to voting, or even laying the groundwork to reject results outright.

Schumer invokes the one-year anniversary of the day when hundreds of goons "fueled by conspiracy and the ravings of a vengeful former President" descended on the Capitol "in a naked attempt to derail our Republic’s most sacred tradition: the peaceful transfer of power."

"Our democracy held – for now," he adds, although the jury's still out on that one, TBQH.

Joe Rogan Picks Joe Biden's 2024 Replacement For Us And Sure, F*ck It, Why Not

Michelle Obama is telling you she is not going to the White House again.

Former first lady Michelle Obama has repeatedly stated she’s not interested in politics and wants to enjoy her fabulous life. She said in 2018: “I’ve never had the passion for politics. I just happened to be married to somebody who has the passion for politics, and he drug me kicking and screaming into the arena.”

However, noted political pundit and deep thinker Joe Rogan suggested that Obama could replace President Joe Biden at the top of the 2024 Democratic ticket. On his podcast Monday, he said: "Harris comes back as the Vice President and Michelle Obama is the President. We get a double dose of diversity.”

Or we get two exceptional, talented women who are more capable than the ragamuffin Donald Trump/Ron DeSantis dream team Rogan presumes will run in 2024. It’s not just about diversity. An all-white male GOP ticket is just as reflective of “identity politics” as an all-Black woman Democratic ticket.

But before we get too far into this, let’s stress that Biden is probably running in 2024. Yes, he’s 79 and mortal, but he’s still relevant to this discussion.
