This is good news. Trump gave the Dems Georgia doing the same thing. Between 50,000 COVID-19 deaths at a 5-1 rate for Republicans and this, he could swing Florida blue. Same for the other swing states. To get healthy, Republicans need to see Trump's treason as a losing proposition.

They saw the results last time, too. These aren't Democrats we're dealing with; they'll probably learn from their past results.

I agree these are Trump voters, not conservatives or GOP voters.

*sigh*

Biden’s Federalist Society loaded Supreme Court commission proves to be a farce.

To poke at Senator Whitehouse's reply -

Quote:
Washington, DC – Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Courts Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding the interim report of the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States:

“This report is a disappointment to anyone who’d hoped for a hard-hitting effort to address the Supreme Court’s deep troubles. From this report, you would never know:

(a) that the last three Supreme Court vacancies were filled through the efforts of a private organization (the Federalist Society) receiving enormous contemporaneous anonymous donations;

(b) that anonymous individual checks as large as $17 million funded Supreme Court confirmation battle advertising, with no way to know what business those donors had before the Court;

(c) that orchestrated flotillas of anonymously-funded right-wing amici appear regularly before the Court, and achieve virtually perfect success with the Republican appointees;

(d) that a peculiar fast lane has emerged that rushes politically loaded cases to the Supreme Court through deliberate trial and appellate court losses;

(e) that intensely political partisan decisions have hinged on findings of fact that were not an appellate court’s ordinary province, that were not supported by a factual record, and that ultimately were demonstrably false;

(f) that ‘regulatory capture’ is not limited to administrative agencies but can infect courts as well;

(g) that as much as $400 million in anonymized money has been spent through an array of coordinated groups seemingly designed to capture the Supreme Court, a sum not usually spent without motive; and

(h) that in civil cases decided by a 5-4 partisan Supreme Court majority in which there was an evident Republican donor interest, the donor interest win record was an astonishing 80-0.”

They won't reason this out. Instead, they will continue to believe that they way to winning is by cheating before and after the election.

It lost them at 'reason'.
