Re: SCOTUS BOWL 2018

They can deny a quorum. I thought there was also some other tactic they can do where they put up every single senate action up to a roll call vote that normally gets waived 99% of the time and will essentially shut down the body.

Re: SCOTUS BOWL 2018

amazing thing is there is a high likelihood Trump replaces Ruth too. I want him to nominate some wacko for the lulz but he's smart enough to solidify even more power on the R's by picking a blue chip prospect

Strat wise Trump should go to the right of Scalia given the weakness in Dems senate line. Pretty much a lock it gets thru

0% Trump knew who Gorusch was. 100% someone just told him picking Gorusch would make deplorables happy.

Still not even close yet.

Also, kudos to Kennedy for making sure every one of his key decisions gets overturned in the next few years.

Re: SCOTUS BOWL 2018

Can a lame duck senate appoint the SC justice?

If so, Republicans can wait until after the election - if they have the senate it doesn't matter. If they lose it, appoint it in the lame duck.

The dems are still only 30% to have control of senate on predictit.

Re: SCOTUS BOWL 2018

So now that is it happening..... what does Roe vs. Wade being overturned mean precisely? Will the new reality be that you can only get an abortion in a blue state..... If you live in a red state can they pass laws to even get you for some BS like crossing state lines to get an abortion somewhere where it is legal?

I'd bet if we polled a large sample of deplorables and asked them to name Trump's SCOTUS pick, way less than half would be able to name Gorsuch. All they know is that if Trump picked him, then that's good enough for them. Gorsuch didn't make them happy per se.

Deplorables are just happy that Trump is the pres. Just like he could shoot people and wouldn't lose support, he absolutely could nominate a liberal judge and deplorables would still vote for him. If the nominee was liberal but a white male, they wouldn't even blink. Many would believe that any reporting that the nominee was liberal was just fake news attempting to discredit Trump.

Trump would, of course, never do it. And even if he did, Senate wouldn't confirm. The point is that the deplorable base doesn't really care who the nominee is. All they care about is that Trump picks. And since Trump is infallible, the specific person chosen is irrelevant to them.

Half of them wouldn't be able to name the VP.

Yeah, I was being extremely generous there. Realistically we're in the single digit percentages.

the way people have been speaking about it, it seems that it would be a state issue. but i don't see why the same supreme court couldn't also nullify laws legalizing it in those states as well.

Re: SCOTUS BOWL 2018

I actually think an overwhelming majority of MAGAts would be able to name Gorsuch simply because up until the travel ban’s upholding his appointment was literally rump’s single concrete achievement

He ran ads for a while where the first thing on the highlight reel was Gorsuch’s appointment

Re: SCOTUS BOWL 2018

List of names better than trump's likely thought of the crazy lady on TV. God help us all if that happened.

There is a floated rumor of Mike Lee just to get him out of the senate. I think Trump will just pick the best sounding name to him out of that list again.
