Former Senator Reid has no f**ks left to give:
… Senate Republicans have hijacked our Supreme Court. They stole a seat that should have been filled by President Obama in 2016 and they rushed to confirm Brett Kavanaugh last year despite ample evidence that he lied to Congress. The result is the Supreme Court is now a ticking time bomb, set to blow up any meaningful progressive reforms for decades to come. Yet, the court has been the subject of surprisingly little discussion so far in the presidential primary…
That is why any Democratic candidate serious about addressing the urgent crises facing our country needs a plan for dealing with the Supreme Court.
This starts with a public commitment to nominate bold, progressive lawyers to the court. Mitch McConnell’s elimination of the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees means that, if Democrats win back the Senate next year, the next Democratic president will not have to cater to unreasonable Republicans to find a justice who can win 60 votes. Instead, there will be an opportunity to nominate justices who have spent their careers fighting for progressive values and can rebalance a Court that is now biased towards the rich and the powerful…
Demand Justice’s list includes brilliant women, people of color, and LGBT lawyers. It also prioritizes professional diversity to help rebalance a court currently made up almost entirely of former corporate lawyers and prosecutors. For example, our Supreme Court has not had a justice with criminal defense experience since Thurgood Marshall retired nearly three decades ago. Demand Justice’s list includes several former public defenders, including of Nevada U.S. District Court Judge Richard Boulware, whom I recommended to Obama in 2014…
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Honesty / Sanity Divide, Little Prince Rand (to paraphrase George Wallace) will not be out-liar’d:
.@jaketapper to @RandPaul: "Do you really think President Trump was concerned about corruption (in Ukraine)? Paul: "Yes, I do think Ukraine has been one of the corruptist countries on Earth." Jake: "That's not what I asked.

Rand Paul tried to claim that Trump is anti-corruption, so Jake Tapper listed all of the Trump associates convicted of federal crimes. pic.twitter.com/dRYb6Q9SnD

And this is not even a marker of stupid Paul is. It's a marker of how stupid he thinks everyone else is. Next up, Paul argues that Stephen Miller is deeply concerned about racism in America. https://t.co/NFfnSR9q6I
