He probably doesn't kick his dog...


Sounds like one of those nice, well-bred Victorian gentlemen whose ideal was that the law, in its impartial majesty, would forbid rich and poor alike to steal bread, beg in the street, and sleep under bridges.

It really is amazing that any human with a functioning conscience can be a "Republican".

The "cold neutrality of the law" reminds of "The Cold Equations" short story, which Gorsuch probably would have sided with the equations if he had had to rule on its legality.....


I tend to assume the sensation of warmth in the vicinity of archconservatives is owing to the presence of flaming trousers.

I note (much like Lance giving Sen. Sanders his personal due, I am compelled by honesty and unexpected pride to do the same for the "senator from Lehman Brothers") that Chuck Schumer has said we will filibuster. And I have loved the questions asked by Whitehouse, Franken, and Feinstein thus far in the hearings; they actually sound like an opposition party living in our current political reality rather than, well, Senate Democrats. Die with the sword in your hand for once, guys. It *will* turn out the base. I don't know, to be blunt, who lent Schumer their testicles sometime back in December, but can he get on a rent-to-own plan? It's a good look for him.

@El Jefe A vacuum of veracity is an accelerant for a spark of mendacity. ;)
