That is very seemingly the Supreme Courtroom nominee that Mitch McConnell will likely be making an attempt to ram by way of the Senate within the subsequent 5 weeks. Right here’s Amy Coney Barrett enjoying pundit and defending McConnell’s resolution to dam President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, after Justice Scalia’s loss of life. Unhealthy sufficient, however word the massive inform: An Obama nominee would “dramatically flip the stability of energy.”
A lot for these “balls and strikes” of Chief Justice John Roberts, huh? She lays all of it on the market; it’s a “stability of energy.” A lot for even respecting the pretense of not prejudging circumstances. It’s all “us vs. them.” Even Justice Neil Gorsuch, who obtained that stolen seat, hasn’t played that game. I suppose that’s why it’s prone to be Barrett. She’s prepared to go there, on the file.
