From what I've heard, Cruz plans to filibuster Obama's nomination. Because of course he would .

Sure, I think if the situation were reversed and a Republican president were up against a heavily Democratic Senate, the Democrats would do their part to disagree with the Republican president's pick.

But I also think their motives for doing so would be very different from the current Republican party's motives for opposing Obama's pick. The GOP's refusal to support anything Obama has put forth during his time as president (including things the GOP themselves were originally for until Obama got on board) has much deeper, and often much uglier, reasons behind it.

Scalia shouldn't have gotten mixed up in the executive game, it was never for a guy like him. I hear he owed Tony Soprano bigtime on poker. Hunting accident, or hit, you be the judge!

Because they would not want to upset the balance on the court too much.
Who replaced Marshall, Clarence Thomas?

Any senators up for reelection this year shouldn't be allowed to vote for the SCOTUS nominee, because they could be lame duck candidates.

Death of Justice suspicious


yeah, they are never going to say, he took a performance enhancing drug and his companion called in a panic when he was unresponsive

it always goes like this, they found him alone in the morning, he died of natural causes, no autopsy report

How humorous. You're so clever, deep.

I wasn't describing Obama doing something that was with intentions of "being fair." I was describing him doing something that's possible, given a Repube controlled congress that is more divided than ever which will intentionally look to block it just because Obama.

It's been interesting to revisit our senators and former senators' comments on Supreme nominations over the last decade or two.

Not one to give credence to conspiracy theories, I will just say this:

"Marfa, Texas" where Scalia died over the weekend is an anagram for "at a sex farm". Need I say more? The prosecution rests.


Borrowed this from a friend on Facebook,

It is, it's turned into quite the art community, in the middle of nowhere.
