There's a method to their madness. It's desperate and cynical but it's all they've got.
His response to those demanding "diversity" sounds like something Bill Maher would say.
And everybody else is too mad at Obama for doing a totally brilliant thing. Take a freaking deep breath, people.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has given Democrats a clear message that as long as he holds the position of Majority Leader, they will never be allowed to nominate and confirm a Liberal Supreme Court Justice. Ever.
The right way: be as nice as you can, and save the politics for at least a day or so. The wrong way? Everything else.
And so it begins. Don't you know that the big news on the right is that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was "Found Dead With 'Pillow Over Head,'" and somehow, Obama was "coincidentally" linked to the man who found said body with pillow over head?
Justice Antonin Scalia died of a heart attack. He wasn't murdered and he damn sure wasn't "assassinated." Motherfucker died the way most 79-year-old overweight guys do. Get over it.
This from the guy who just got through saying black people are doing all the murdering.
Jon Stewart blasted Scalia's ridiculous hypocrisy on the gay marriage ruling.
If James Madison were alive today saying the things he said 200 years ago, Antonin Scalia would denounce him as a secular extremist.
Given that the court has already judged corporations to be people, it's really no surprise that it's now extended "religious freedom" to (some of) them.
During a speaking engagement last week at the University of Tennessee College of Law, Scalia discussed how it's constitutionally permissible for Congress to impose taxes on citizens. Fair enough. However, Scalia added, "if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt."
One of the major takeaways from the series dramatic political events over the last 48 hours is quite simply that the Republicans will do anything to win. Almost literally anything. Chicanery and complex scheming in politics isn't anything new (see also House of Cards), but the intensity and frequency -- not to mention the broad-daylight hubris of it all by the Republicans this week has been extraordinary to behold.
