Open thread - The stolen seat
Well, it's official. Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court this morning.
Of course, man-child Donald Trump brayed that it was a great victory for him, 100 days, et cetera et cetera. However, we can be sure that he had to be reminded of now-Justice Gorsuch's name before the ceremony, as he had nothing to do with his selection.
People were told that this seat was on the ballot in November. And the reaction from the Bernie Sanders / Jill Stein crowd was "Don't threaten us with the Supreme Court! Emails! DNC! Arrrggghhh!!!" Well, this is what you get. If just half of Jill Stein's voters in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania had voted strategically for Hillary Clinton, we'd be in a far different place now.
Now we're faced with the situation that the recipient of Russian largesse is going to get to make life-time appointments to the Supreme Court. Good going, Steinbots. Hope you survive the coming fire.
This is your open thread.
