Boom!

Alright, we have to admit it: We’re in shock.

After a prolonged and excessively tedious game of chicken in the Senate, which we had fully expected to end in the usual failure theater, Yertle the Turtle seemed to have located a pair of spare testicles and pulled the trigger on Sniffling Schumer, nuking the filibuster into oblivion.

Which, we suspect, won’t turn out too well for the Prozi Party.

To his credit, we have to mention that McConnell did note, back when Dicky Reid the pervert did the same thing to all positions below the Supreme Court (for the simple reason that there weren’t any vacancies on it back then, or he’d have nuked that too), that the Prozis would end up regretting it.

Being accustomed to the Recucklican party’s blustering and empty threats, we didn’t think much of it at the time. After all, we’re talking about the Band of Bimbos who sat on Congress for a solid 6 years without using it for anything other than finding themselves forced to pretend to fight the Prozis while having already agreed to surrender unconditionally, but apparently this time Mitchie meant it.

It is certainly going to make the next four years all that much more memorable.

Meanwhile, obviously, the Prozi Party and their Steno Pool have suddenly discovered that the filibuster is the single most sacred institution in the world that they’ve always held in the utmost esteem, much like a serial wife beater will protest to the court, tearfully, that he never loved anybody as much as the wife whose rotting corpse the police just dug out of his basement.

Heads exploding everywhere.

Tired of winning yet?

We’re not.

Thatisall.

    Forgive me for being a skeptic Sire, but until I see Gorsuch with his left hand on the bible at the swearing-in ceremony, I will continue to have my doubts :em02:

    Off topic – about Syria, if the goal is to get rid of Assad, fine and dandy, but what will you replace him with that will allow the country to settle down (which it won’t so long as it is the playpen for Iran and its proxies)? I am sure Israel may have a say in this one and hope Trump listens. Interesting times indeed. One missile for each state if we can believe the media, which seems a tad excessive to shit shut one airfield.

    Terrapod: he has been confirmed.

    The Senate confirmed judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court Friday in a mostly party-line 54-45 vote that reflected weeks of bruising political fighting which deepened congressional divides and changed the nature of high court appointments in the future.

    Winning. Still not tired yet.

    Meanwhile, obviously, the Prozi Party and their Steno Pool have suddenly discovered that the filibuster is the single most sacred institution in the world that they’ve always held in the utmost esteem, much like a serial wife beater will protest to the court, tearfully, that he never loved anybody as much as the wife whose rotting corpse the police just dug out of his basement.

    Snerk.

    You can always count on the Progtards to rediscover the Constitution and the Rule of Law when they need a pair
    of clubs to beat Republicans about the head and shoulders with.

    I would expect nothing else of them, and they always manage to sink beneath my already low expectations.

    Great day, not only did I turn 65 but we did get a constitutional (I pray) justice on the supreme court.

    Thanks for the update Brendan.

    I was 100% disconnected from the media as part of my day at work then celebration with family, not that 65 is anything important other than to the Feds, who in this, the once free-est country on the planet, now coerce us into signing up for Medicare under penalty of monetary damages if we do NOT sign up for said “benefit” upon turning 65.

    Not only that, in reading the fine print on the paperwork just received, I apparently now have (under penalty of monetary damages) to report to the SS arbeitstrumzentrum if I plan to leave the country over 30 contiguous days. Am going to have a word with my lawyer on this little gem as I am accustomed to being on the road for 3 to 6 weeks at a time for my employment, it kind of grates on the sensibilities as I continue employed at the moment :em08:

    Now pass the popcorn and Glenlivet. Should we start a deadpool for closest estimate on Ginsberg stepping down or dropping DRT? That is when the real fireworks go off!

    Rumor has it that Kennedy might be stepping down first. Either one would be good if we get another constitutionalist.

    Two down, and one more filibuster to do away with:

    THE LEGISLATIVE FILIBUSTER.

    I have been VERY consistent over the years here about doing away with all the arcane rules in the Senate designed to allow Senators to hide behind not voting on issues.

    No, I don’t care that Republicans currently control the entire show. Let them live with their voted positions. Do NOT expect the Democrats to help them out on any of this.

    Repeal Obamacare, enact draconian “conservative” laws, and LIVE with their actions.

    Filibusters, anonymous holds, and other legislative tactics weren’t to slow down or derail legislation — it provided a “cover” for those Senators who didn’t want to HAVE to state their real positions through a VOTE. Doing away with the filibuster on legislation will force these elected weasels to be on the voting record on ALL proposed legislation.

    Live by the vote, die by the vote.

    I said the same thing when Democrats had control, and I am STILL saying it now that the Republicans run the show.

    In two years, one-third of the Senate is up for election. Imagine if every one of them had an actual voting record on some of the tough stuff, instead of hiding behind a hold on a piece of legislation.

    I think you will find that suddenly the rhetoric will start matching their voting records — and the PEOPLE will have a better idea of who they keep returning to Congress…

    Terrapod @ #:1

    There’s also the historical problem of an alarmingly high percentage of Republican Supreme Court justices getting sworn in and then deciding that Progressive cock tastes totally awesome and devoting the rest of their life to sucking it. They’ve only put slightly fewer communists on the bench than the Dems.
