--ActBlue Raises Record $50 Million Following Ginsburg Death-- I'd rather raise $10 million of "Hell yeah!" money from a million people than $50 million of "Oh shit!" money from 1,000.

So was that Amy Coney Island Barrett quote about the Pope ever confirmed? I find it very hard to believe, close to impossible, she said that.

Difficult question, badman. The fires burning now should be generating very little smoke by then. But mid October is still fire season so I can't really predict what will pop up between now and then. So it could be clear as a bell or look like Tokyo after Godzilla wades through and sets everything ablaze. Emerald Isle is probably a safer bet if you don't mind the occasional hurricane. :) Yosemite is always better to me in the winter. I've driven through the valley on an early Feb or Jan morning and seen one or two cars in the whole place. This time of year a lot of the waterfalls are either trickles or nonexistent. Winter and spring are my picks for when to go.

--Even if Roberts votes with the remaining liberals, it's 4-4 and Pence decides.-- Pence breaks ties in the Senate not SCOTUS.

Porch's 2:29; when your hope is in politics and politicians you'll make a colossal horse's ass out of yourself, every time. OTOH, her ilk do supply considerable entertainment value.

A horrific sign of the times; Cosmo; dedicated to putting the freak back in freak shows. Say what you want about Helen Gurley Brown, but she knew the difference between a hot chick and a dude in a dress and between a good figure and a tatted up Stellar's Sea Cow in a one piece or ::shudder:: Lena Dunham in anything.

--“If Trump and Republicans replace Ginsburg it will destroy the remaining public legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Full stop.”-- Would he have said the same if Barry and the Dems had voted a prog on in October 2012? Of course not.

OK, so I have a question. If the prog dream is, as it has been since at least FDR, lets pack the court because the Constitution is silent on how many justices there should be, why can't the court be unpacked? They serve for life unless their seat opens up to a trap door. Why shouldn't there be seven or five or three? Say Thomas, Alito and a player to be named later. Or alternately why 15? Why not whatever gives the party in power an all powerful edge? If the progs want a designer court let's go. If Trump inspires a new generation of Reps who don't swallow their tongue when faced with an angry prog they might curtail their brinksmanship if they're at least as likely to be the one over the brink as the other guy. That's always the problem with the my way or the highway brinksmanship. People tolerate it for awhile, but as the brink gets closer they wake up and either grab on tight so both go over or they execute a little jujitsu so the brinker becomes the brinkee.

Thank you for that link Porch. Brightened my day, considerable. It seems darn few progs, who after all are really, really smart [they must be because they tell us they are all the time] know any words that don't start with f and end with ucked.

Somehow I missed that the insufferable goon Joy Behar had done a black face routine. When candidate Kim Klacick reminded the bloated old bag Behar, she claimed her blackface was OK because it was "an homage". So was Al Jolson's...but he had talent, ya fugly, unfunny mammie.

I'm not sure why everyone is worried an 8 member Supreme Court wouldn't be able to decide whatever election issues come before it. Four reliable progs and one reliable Judas Roberts makes a decisive 5-3 split on any momentous decisions, no? Problem. Solved.

I don't know if this is a portent of things to come or an influx of creepy progs, but in my red neck of the CA woods, I'm seeing a lot more Biden signs than Trump ones and way more signs for the opponent of TK's favorite congressman, Tom McClintock, than for TM.

--For decades, I stated that if there was a SCOTUS vacancy within say six months of a Presidential election, then a nomination and vote should be held until after the election as that was one of the few times the voters had at least somewhat of a say.-- I have to admit I've never understood the logic of this. Whoever has the presidency and the Senate was chosen by the say of the voters. Why should voters six months later have a claim on the time the previous voters placed people in governance?

I thought this TWIP comment was pretty clever Homeschoolmomof11 • an hour ago I'm not sure which was best, but I bet future SCOTUS memes will be ruthless.

Feel good story of the day; Minneapolis has it's very own autonomous zone. The People's Republic of Fentanyl. Floyd George has been elected it's first Prime Minister, posthumously. It's just like Seattle's but all the commies say 'you betcha' as they're poppin a cap your way.

If what Skull shifter said is true then Barret is kind of a dope. A Catholic justice can't decide an issue where the Pope has taken a stance? If she actually believes that she shouldn't be on the court. Period.

Can't remember if I linked this Steve Hayward bit; ON DOG WHISTLES AND DEMOCRAT PEA-BRAINS Today in the New York Times, two left-leaning academics totally blow the narrative with this passage reporting on the results of some in-depth focus groups with minority voters (with my emphasis added): --The results are sobering. We began by asking eligible voters how “convincing” they found a dog-whistle message lifted from Republican talking points. Among other elements, the message condemned “illegal immigration from places overrun with drugs and criminal gangs” and called for “fully funding the police, so our communities are not threatened by people who refuse to follow our laws.” Almost three out of five white respondents judged the message convincing. More surprising, exactly the same percentage of African-Americans agreed, as did an even higher percentage of Latinos.--

I may be mistaken but McTurtle always spoke of a lame duck, or even a healthy one, from the opposite party not getting a pick through, not a Senate and pres from the same party. If Trump did get Her Honor Amy Coney Barrett approved maybe she would inspire His Honor John Progesterone Roberts' testicles to finally descend.

Rand Paul; My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Ruth Bader Ginsburg tonight. She leaves a legacy of thoughtful public service, a dedication to the law, and a life of great accomplishment. May she Rest In Peace. OK, no statement should contain a lie like that. If you want to praise her whatever fine, but at nearly every turn when a law and the constitution conflicted with her political beliefs she proved dedicated to her politics not the law. On the contrary she made sure to uproot the law to further her politics. That is a dedication to the rule of men.

Everyone's favorite autocrat goes out in fine form; “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed.” Not elected mind you. Installed.
