Teh Squeaky Wheel
Heh, Mac; extra good thread pic today.
Will Senate Republicans have the cojones to hold off confirming any Biden SCOTUS pick until after the November elections?
Hahahahahahahahaha…no, they don’t have the nougas to do that.
Bad dream scenario: Feeb-in-Chief appoints Harris to SCOTUS, picks Cankle Lady as replacement Veep and then resigns.
It’s extraordinarily frustrating that a few shitty HOA people can spend more than a year trying to extort money from a contractor who did nothing wrong…and there’s effectively no legal remedy.
Certain parties have no idea how fortunate they are I reside at the opposite end of the country.
that picture, lol.
Hi, Fatwa -- good morning and happy Friday GN.
Winds really bad overnight, although it looks like it will be worse south of us towards Paddy. As Bill Clinton said about his intern, she’s still blowing strong.
Hey, Sven --
Hope your power remains on and that there are no fires near you.
Also: +1 Lewinsky.
Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Sven -- I hope SCE doesn’t decide to pull your power.
I read a couple of interesting takes on SCOTUS nominations yesterday. One is that the VP can only break a tie in the Senate for bills, not nominations (Lawrence Tribe and Alan Dershowitz). The other is that under a power-sharing agreement between Schumer and McConnell, you could end up with a tie vote in the Judiciary Committee. That would effectively freeze the nomination, until someone moved that the matter be taken up by the full Senate. At which point the nominee has not been recommended by the committee, so the nuclear option is no longer in play and it would take 60 votes for cloture.
My guess is that McConnell will hold strong until after the November elections, then with firm control of the Senate, and a majority on the Judiciary Committee, he’ll have a couple of Republicans side with the Democrats to move the nominee out of committee, where a few more will turn and “regretfully” support Biden’s nominee.
I hereby nominate the esteemed and truly authentic African American woman of color -- Rachel Dolezal. Of course, the esteemed and truly authentic Native American woman of color -- Elizabeth Warren should be considered as well.
I like the cut of your jib!
Thanks Paddy. Actually I prefer an over one shoulder floor length jib. These tight and short jibs are so itch producing.
Yes, but at least you have the legs for it.
Over Slept Again.
Well, Probably not really.
Over Stayed Awake
when I got home. this morning.
I’ve been up a few hours, had breakfast, watched TimcastIRL live, I basically feel human, so that’s good, I guess.
No social life. Ugh………
Maybe I’ll skype someone.
I did stream a couple of times a few weeks ago. That’ turned out not to be a continuing trend.
