Portrait of the Senator as a younger bigot
Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has made it known that he will vote against confirming President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson to become the first Black woman to sit on the nation’s highest judicial bench.
As GOP leader in the U.S. Senate, McConnell’s announcement was not a surprise to many…
Senate Democrats are reportedly hoping for a full vote for Jackson’s confirmation next month. She needs 51 out of 100 votes to be approved for the bench. There are 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans in the U.S. Senate, and as a wild card, Vice President Kamala Harris has the tiebreaker vote.
…it is not clear if Jackson will garner any support from Republicans.
I was co-chair of a freshly-chartered chapter of young Republicans when I was young…the Republican part was a favor for a friend who was a Republican and pretty even-handed on many political issues BITD. Especially regarding racism and conservatives who took opportunist support anywhere it could be found. A stance not completely absent in some Republican regions even 60 years ago.
I returned to being unregistered with either of the two parties generally allowed…after a polite couple of months.
Remember, folks. Before you whine about those of us who complain about living in a bigoted, politically backwards nation – this prig was ELECTED from a Northern state, supposedly with educational standards up to par, “news” services as good as any in the country.
So, what do they like about his style, eh? Haircut? Choice of ties?
It’s not often folks whose cultural lives are crapped on by an incompetent government get to respond in a timely, effective manner. I’m going to presume that Tik-Tok users aren’t feeling all warm and fuzzy about the meathead in the White House…how he’s screwing over their cultural life.
15% of Tik-Tok users are going to be first-time voters in a couple of months. Can you imagine a better opportunity to express your contempt for the buffoon who tried to crush their communal chat and creativity?
Look at the date on this. The Fake President had been around long enough to find his reading glasses and pick this up off his desk. Even though he didn’t deserve to be there.
The racism he supports, the bigots he protects, are a matter of choice. He isn’t ignorant of the facts. He chooses to be corrupt.
