    Seattle has been constantly preaching that the things we point out are on the margins. The fringe elements. But it's not. It's totally mainstream now.

    It is frightening. We're changing the dictionary definition of terms to promote a partisan political agenda. This is Stalinist-level stuff.

    Totally agree. It's incredible how they have the nerve to call people Nazi's when they are the one's attacking a demographic just because of the color of their skin.

    Hey, just say it. Are you a progressive wanting a world full of flower power or are you bent on revenge and total power dominance?

    @DanRather tweeted:

    "If you want to be an originalist in law, maybe you should go all the way. Cooking on a hearth. Leeches for medicine. An old mule for transportation. Or maybe you can recognize that the world changes."

    Which just goes to prove that to libs the Constitution is just a piece of paper as Obama once said. It can be used or ignored as their needs demand.

    Totally agree. Rather is wrong as wrong can be. The Constitution is a slow moving dinosaur because they understood the corruption inherent in power. You don't like it, then change the Constitution by amendment. These people absolutely make me sick.

    My goodness he is obtuse. He could not have come up with more ridiculous analogies. There is a process for changing the law. The law should be what was originally intended until it is changed through the legislative process. How can anyone rationally argue otherwise?

    Exactly what I thought when I read it. Almost laughed out loud! Cook on a hearth? Hahahahaha.
    In my mind adding to the definition of sexual preference is equally crazy.

    re sexual preference: do people who are born homosexual not prefer to have sex with people of the same sex?

    I have a sexual preference, I guess that’s demeaning but what do I know.

    I think we've had the "advise and consent" of the Senate part only 1/2 right, even before the Bork hearing and the mess ever since.

    I envision the Senate (whether the majority is of the President's party or not) first advising the President about some good candidates, who they like, who they think they would confirm and not. They would have closed door round table meetings between the President/President's staff and the Senate judiciary committee. The President would throw some names in the ring at the meeting(s), they would go round-and-round (not on tv), and the Senate would provide their advice. After that advice, the President would then make his nomination and the Senate would (or would not) consent.

    Apparently “preference” implies there is a choice involved in the matter. LGBT folks don’t want you to think that. Regardless, there is always a choice despite orientation. It’s word thinking - it doesn’t change reality.

    Dianne Feinstein complimented Graham on a good hearing
    so Demand Justice, a left-wing organization that aims to reshape the Supreme Court, immediately chastised Feinstein.
    "We launched this ad calling on Sen. Feinstein to fight like everything is on the line — because it is. She didn’t," the organization tweeted with a video questioning Feinstein's ability to lead her party. "We’re calling on her to step down as the leader of the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee."
    Liberal group calls for Feinstein to stand down from Judiciary Committee role after Graham hug

    Idiots who say crap like this not only don't know what originalism is, they don't know what a written law is at all. Frankly, they don't know what written communication is. I don't care if he does have a background in journalism. He doesn't know what the purpose of writing things down is.

    Feinstein is an institutionalist and generally believes in decorum, and she's undoubtedly in her last term. She's not going to give two squirts of piss what some crackpot activists think of her. Remember what she did to the Sunrise Movement idiots. That was friggin beautiful. It was probably the only time they've ever been spoken to like that in their lives. It'll be sad when she finally quits or dies - not because she is that great but because she'll be replaced by someone far worse. It'll be someone who's further left and more sanctimonious and obnoxious.

    It's kind of weird seeing Katie Hill comment on clothing -- what does she know about wearing clothes?

    I honestly don't understand why some in the Democratic Party actually think she should be made relevant again or should try to make some kind of comeback. If that happens, won't we all owe Anthony Wiener, Jim McGreevey, and Larry Craig apologies? Why should their careers be over if hers isn't?

    Many liberal females see her as a victim. Thus, they can use her to fundraise from those suckers

    I will tap out on this one

    It's so weak though. When you use your congressional and campaign staff as your own personal brothel, that's pretty hard to spin into victimhood. It almost makes me sympathetic to the "wide stance" defense.

    joe Biden hedged again last night about whether court-packing was an option for him or not. He said it all depends on how Republicans handle the confirmation process for ACB. Since it looks like she's going to be confirmed, can we expect a confirmation hearing for Barak Obama in March or April if, God forbid, Biden wins?

    So are we saying it is Constitutional to expand SCOTUS to more than the current allotment? Would it take a bill? An executive order? An amendment?
