Uncommon Sense

Finally, Election Day

Now the next campaign can begin.

Seriously, I am wondering what the Republicans are going to do about the Supreme Court if Mrs. Clinton wins. If they rush to confirm President Obama’s nominee, who is quite a centrist, they will expose themselves for the political manipulators they are. Their reasoning for blocking confirmation of the current nominee for a record number of days was that the American people should have a say in this appointment through whom they elect as the new president; it should not be a “lame duck” appointment of President Obama.

If they stick with their faux narrative and wait to see who Mrs. Clinton will nominate, it might be a nominee even more progressive than Judge Merrick Garland, then they will have to trump up outrage that such a person would be nominated, when they have cast their lot on the wisdom of the American people to make a choice for president who would nominate justices for them.

Interesting boxes the Republicans seem to be fond of jamming themselves into. This is what happens when a political organization adopts a policy of “Logic, smogic, phht, who cares?”


  1. Good luck with it.

    If its President Trump, please try and keep the noise down, and when he’s been removed just phone us out here in the world and tell us what aid you need delivered to start the rebuilding, OK.

    • Well, if he is elected the first thing he promised to do is bomb the shit out of something, so I would stand back … uh, way back.

      This whole election is very embarrassing. There are no grownups in the room. Our primary choices are between an idiot and a representative of the status quo, only more so. My wish is that the two combined gather an historic low in the fraction of the vote garnerd by the two main parties. I then hope this will empower the creation of another party that will displace one of those two and reboot U.S. politics. And that, my friend, is a very, very “long shot” … as we say in a gun wielding, bomb the shit out of them kind of country.

      • Well, for here, I’m only really thinking about your Supreme Court. That has to be secured.

  2. Something I’ve wondered about … are we going to remain in a static phase for the next four years if HC is elected and the Republican party retains the majority in Congress (which, from what I’ve read. appears to be the case)?

    The other thing that concerns me about HC being elected … what are the tRump supporters who want to “lock her up” going to do? They have so much hatred towards her, it’s scary. This has become much more than a campaign meme.

  3. They can just keep arguing that there will be another election in 2018 and the people need to have their say again.
