That's what my favorite Senator said about the Republicans after last night's debate, The Republican Party 'has gone batshit.' Always did like Lindsey Graham (R, SC), my image of him cemented by a stray tv shot during Jon Roberts' confirmation hearings showing him standing in the back of the room, saluting with a glass of scotch as Roberts declared he would merely be calling balls and strikes   Now I can't swear it was scotch, it did look like a crystal snifter unlikely to hold anything but and he was toasting with it.

I do worry. Trump has been counted out from the beginning by all the pundits and political mavens.  But there he is, gathering steam from the cheers of this followers  while inflating his insatiable ego.

Donald Trump Retweets Post With Quote From Mussolini http://nyti.ms/1phAW8M

“It’s a very good quote,” said Mr. Trump. “I didn’t know who said it, but what difference does it make if it was Mussolini or somebody else — it’s a very good quote.”

right as usual ...

Obama with a bit of humor in Chicago ...

"When I look at Merrick Garland, yeah, he's a white guy but he's a really outstanding jurist. Sorry."

"At no point did I say: 'I need a black lesbian from Skokie in that slot. Can you find me one?'" Mr. Obama said. "That’s not how I approached it."

it seems the insidious creep of fundamentalism works well with texting. Text  talaq talaq talaq  and you're wife is divorced, I suppose it does save on lawyer fees and such, so that's one plus. Nowhere in the article is any mention of the wife having the same option, I guess the thought just wouldn't even occur to anyone.

Given the Senate he might just as well have nominated a Black Lesbian from Skokie, preferably one who votes a strait communist party ticket.

Well that would have given them a solid reason to deny confirmation instead of floundering about and coming up with no excuse for the lack of action. 

I can understand why the Republicans don't want to confirm another Justice, but the refusal to even talk to the man and perhaps go through the motions before denying, is another manifestation of their lack of respect and total rejection of the President, from immediately after the first election and here the NO! just a couple of hours after the death of Scalia.
