Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – With Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his long-anticipated retirement from Supreme Court on Wednesday, it was just like Election Night 2016 over at CNN. Check out these looooooooonnnnnng faces:
Just charming, aren’t they?
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part II – Oh, but it got even better over on Twitter (because liberal outrage and angst is always better on Twitter), with SJWs and snowflakes wailing out their innermost feelings in 280 characters or less. Here are a couple of examples:
Literally in tears. Haven’t felt this hopeless in a long time. With Justice Kennedy leaving, we now have two options as Americans: get fitted for your Nazi uniform or report directly to your death camp. How do you fight the darkness without light? My spark is going out. #SCOTUS

How very cool of Justice Kennedy to pour kerosene on the current dumpster fire that is America. The Roe v Wade riots should provide fine entertainment for him in his retirement.

Yes, because this 81 year-old man had an obligation to keep working to make sure helpless snowflakes like Molly Knight wouldn’t have meltdowns on Twitter. My goodness.
There were many more examples of liberal depravity and dementia in the wake of Kennedy’s announcement, but they pretty much all involve the “F” word or explicit references to male and female body parts, so I won’t quote them here.
Note that Ms. Knight is already promising riots over this change in a single Supreme Court justice. She was far from alone. Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (Md.) told the execrable Nicole Wallace on MSNBC that “It’s time for Democrats to throw down, and what I mean by that is we’ve been playing by the rule book, and Donald Trump and Republicans have been playing by street rules,” Edwards said. “We need to play by street rules.”
Oh, hey, everyone, what we’ve been seeing from the lunatic Democrats the last 20 months is them “playing by the rule book.” Of course, Ms. Edwards left out that it’s the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals rulebook, but I’m sure she just ran out of time.
Then there’s Angela Rye, who is some sort of “analyst” for last-place CNN. Her advice to Democrats went like this: “They have to raise hell,” Rye said. “I said it kind of—whatever, but I mean, like, seriously. This is a decision that doesn’t just impact our lives next year or the next two years.” Man, is that some serious analysis, or what?
Not to be outdone, alleged serial woman harasser Chris Matthews (how does this guy still have his job?) told his audience that the nomination fight over Kennedy’s vacant seat is a “time for vengeance” for Democrats. See? This is the Democrats and their fake media guardians, playing by that “rule book.”
While the Democrats were actually relieved that Kennedy’s announcement now gives them an excuse to quit talking about the fake “don’t separate the families!” border issue that is killing them in the polls, the truth is that the politics of this situation are equally horrible for them, really as bad as they could possibly be. Even though craven RINOs like Susan Collins and Jeff Flake are already scurrying out of the woodwork promising to use the nominating process to satisfy personal grudges with President Trump, the fact of the matter is that the Democrats don’t control a single lever of power in this process – they have no means whatsoever of stopping it.
For that, they have their own ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to thank, because it was Reid who decided to go down the road of eliminating the filibuster rule on judicial nominations. Too bad, so sad, as my kids used to say.
To make matters even worse, the Democrats in this mid-term election year have at minimum 8 incumbent senators from states won by Donald Trump in 2016 who are in serious jeopardy of losing their bids to retain their seats. The vote on Kennedy’s replacement will in all likelihood come at some point in October, bare weeks before Election Day.
Think of the fix in which this places Democrat senators like North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, Montana’s Jon Tester, Missouri’s Claire McCaskill, Florida’s Bill Nelson, and West Virginia’s Joe Manchin. They and other vulnerable Dems are going to be placed under severe pressure by the Party’s far-left voter base and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to march in lockstep (because marching in lockstep is what good little fascists are best at) with the rest of the Democrat senators in opposing any nominee. But for many of these folks, doing that will be fatal, assuming President Trump puts forward another nominee of similar character and quality as Neil Gorsuch.
Trust me, Trump’s nominee has to be someone who is completely impeccable of character and whose record of public service is unassailable in any honest way. The Democrats will go to extreme lengths to “Bork” him or her by portraying them as “too extreme” to assume a seat on the highest court. Failing that, they will then subject the nominee to the Clarence Thomas strategy, so expect a parade of people coming forward to hurl false accusations of harassment or some other form of bad behavior in an effort to execute what then-nominee Thomas called “a high-tech lynching.” Because this is what the Democrats and their media guardians do.
One thing we can all be absolutely certain of is this: President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) will put forward a stellar, high-character, strict constructionist nominee to fill this vacancy. He will do that because that is what he promised to do in his campaign, and this man, like no president before him, keeps his promises to the American people.
Just another day in Donald Trump keeping his promises to America.
That is all.
