Moscow Mitch the Rump’s bitch was spouting praise over RBG just before he will take a dump on her legacy.
republicans have NO sense of “honor”, and their memories are highly selective.
Nauseating but not surprising. UnAmerican as they come, those two.
I mourn the passing of America. Being an old fat white guy with money, it won’t effect me for years, but others are going to suffer and that’s sad. I even see many of them going for Republicans who would love to put them in cages. I sure with the new SCOTUS witch burning and McCarthyism will come back.
My problem with the Republicans is that ½ their lies just aren’t truthful, and the other ½ you just can’t believe. . . Support Minority Rule – vote Red!
Like, Republicans care what we think.
They are worthless pieces of filth.
What a great photo-op. Moscow Mitch and Traitor Trump to view RPG laying in State as the first woman given that honor. Probably told not to show up by the family, however. . . . ./s
Mitt Romney is an honorable man ~~ who knew?!? “I will support Donald Trump’s nominee”
They’ll carpool to Arlington at 4 AM to dance on her grave in a couple of weeks.
At one point Merrick Garland was considered acceptable by Senate Republicans. So renominate Garland.
The Republican “rulebook” only has two lines: “We can do whatever we want. You will do what we tell you.”
Equal Justifications Under Lies-priceless.
I wanted to write a satire about a Justice dying a couple days before the election, Li’l Donnie nominating whatever person the Federalist Society “advises” him to, Li’l Donnie losing the election in a landslide so obvious that even Mitch can see it, but ramming through the nominee between the election and Biden’s inauguration. Then I thought, why give them ideas?

I didn’t know that the 2 statues seated at either side of the entrance to the Supreme Court building were gargoyles.
Now that they’re there, where’s that cement truck?
