  • Good point. It was really selfish of her not to step down years ago if she wanted a democrat to replace her. She missed a great 8 year window to retire during the Obama regime. Now it's in the middle of 8 years of Trump. Elections have consequences. Trump will fill the spot with the kind of judge we elected him to install.

    • I think she assumed Hillary would win and would serve for eight years.

      I had a bad feeling the last time John McCain rain for re-election. Then, like Ted Kennedy, he had to be rolled out of office on a gurney. These people are not known for being modest in their estimates of themselves and their prospects.

      I think it's going to take a frightening display of full-blown dementia in a sitting president to wake people up to the seriousness of this problem. We might get that with Biden.

An excellent chance that Breyer will also need to be replaced. This will be the best thing that's happened to the supreme court in our lifetime.
        You're that confident? It would be nice. I don't even like the man, but the alternative is scary.

        Fun thing: while congress have a harder time getting along the Supreme Court justices have a better history because of a long-standing tradition of lunching together and forbidding law and politic discussion. I first heard about it from a friend who sets up political rallies and such, but here's an article.

        • I'm going to say at least a part of that is the small size of their community. Congress (either house) is huge even looking at a single party and enormous when looking at both (and utterly gargantuan when looking at both houses), but the Supreme Court is just nine people. Seeing those same faces all the time and working with each of them on any given matter (rather than a random selection on various committees) probably builds a helluva lot of intimacy and camaraderie.

          • ^Agreed. It's just an interesting phenomenon. Back in the day Reagan and Tip O'Neil were personal friends while being diametrically opposed politically. It would be nice to see politicians able to at least see the opposition humanly.

            • Liberals are begging Mitch McConnell piteously not to fill that seat. If the shoe were on the other foot, how do you think they'd act?

                  That means the GOP has the chance to actually show some class and refuse to appoint someone until later. There's a viral video of numerous prominent Republican Senators even saying so in 2016 that is making the rounds.

                  Of course, when Democrats held the Senate and waited for Walker to be inducted, McConnell thanked them and then screwed them when they asked for the favor to be returned once he became Senate Majority Leader, so I expect a nomination to be put up this week and confirmed rather quickly.

                    British-French actor Michael Lonsdale, who played the villain opposite Roger Moore's James Bond in the 1979 film Moonraker, has died at the age of 89.

                    In the film, he played Hugo Drax, an industrialist planning to poison all humans on Earth then repopulate the planet from his space station.

                    Lonsdale had a varied career on film, TV, radio and stage, appearing in over 200 roles in both English and French over a career that spanned six decades.

                    His agent confirmed the news on Monday.

                      Good thing this is likely to make Democrats angry even more angry, and they'll probably show up in doves. If Dems finally win the senate again come 2021, they really need to pack the courts.

                                Tommy DeVito, one of the smooth harmonizers of legendary doo-wop group the Four Seasons, has died from complications of the coronavirus. The baritone vocalist and lead guitarist was 92.

                                “It is with great sadness that we report that Tommy DeVito, a founding member of the Four Seasons, has passed. We send our love to his family during this most difficult time. He will be missed by all who loved him.”
