  •  I don't think we're getting the 3 shitty judges (none)
    Someone commented upthread about NPR's reporting that the 7 R compromisers, as part of the deal, will vote down Brown, Owen, Pryor. One guy, Saad, has ethical issues that will probably force him out. Leaves the 2 least objectionable. (Assuming, and hoping, that NPR has these aspects of the deal correct...).

    •  That's the key. (none)

      If Brown, Owens and Pryor go down, the Dems (and the country) wins.   Otherwise it's a disaster.

      I'll even take stopping two out of three.   But some of the nominations have to be stopped.

      •  I got trolled by some drippy happy (none)
        lib who can't handle the truth - my FIRST 1 rating !!  

        I HOPE you all are right - I do NOT like losing, however, when we get our asses kicked and we try to make it sound like a win, we are only going to get more beatings.  

        it is certainly true that if everyone was nice, then the world would be nice.  now for reality ... the Thug strategy is simple - Corner 'em, Cower 'em, Crush 'em.  

        I know that is too harsh for a lot of people who want to be involved in the political community, but, national politics ain't the place for the nice people - the PTA and nursury school is.  


        •  Same for me. Outrageous! (none)
          A 1 because we're not happy about wacko judges and politicians who don't have the spines they were born with???

          Is it really better to spin and lie when once again we are let down by the people we worked so hard to get in???  Sorry -- I just don't buy it.    

          •  at least we can each other 4's !! (none)
            I posted recently that people who don't like to analyze problems can't really find the solutions, which is their business and fine by me.

            However, when they start to throw the labels of "pessimism" and "angry" and "negative" at people who are attempting to analyze problems, then they are doing the rich man's dirty work of stiffling criticsm by calling sour grapes.

            If you don't look behind the curtain cuz the truth that the wizard is a fraud is too harsh for you, that is fine - but, why criticize me for calling a fake a fake?  

            I gave ya a four !!



            •  Thanks! I'd do the same for you, but I lost my (none)
              "trusted user" rating when I left the thread after the election, and it's taking an incredibly long time to get it back!
