Tony and Kolchak go at it
I feel like Karl Kolchak trying to convince his editor that vampires and bayou monsters are infesting Chicago. I mean, I’m about to tell you Bernie Sanders has emerged as the voice of reason on Capitol Hill. Compared to that, demons in a housing development seems rather easier to believe in.
It’s true, though. Democrats have introduced legislation to pack the Supreme Court, adding four more Far Left judges so they can get the rulings that they want; and Bernie Sanders has pleaded with them not to do it (https://www.dailywire.com/news/breaking-democrats-introducing-legislation-to-pack-supreme-court-with-4-new-justices-report-says).
‘Cause if they do, he warns, the next time Republicans are in power, they’ll do the same thing; and by and by we’ll wind up with 857 Supreme Court justices and no public confidence left in any of its decisions. It would also take years and years of wrangling to reach a decision on anything, but let that pass for now.
C’mon, Bernie! What could go wrong? The special House commission will be led by Jerry “Shoulda Worn a Diaper” Nadler and Hank “The island of Guam might capsize if we put any more Marines on it” Johnson–the best and the brightest among House Democrats. How can this not be a brilliant idea?
Bernie’s not the only Dem trying to keep the car from going off the cliff. Justice Stephen Breyer. Harry Reid. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, just before she died.
When Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the court, House Democrats turned against him and he couldn’t do it. But today’s blind folly seems to be arising from the House itself, with encouragement from the scarecrow in the White House.
And why bother to pack the court at all, when the justices are already so afraid of riots that they won’t even look at the 2020 election?
