Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie tells us that amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell (R- Moscow) has completed his life work (bizarre emphasis their):
NO VACANCY LEFT BEHIND — The Senate GOP reached a new milestone under Trump: confirming 200 federal judges. Marianne with the latest: “In a 52-48 vote, the Senate approved Cory Wilson to the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) was the sole Republican to vote against his nomination, along with all Democrats. Prior to his confirmation, McConnell described Wilson as an ‘outstanding choice’ with impeccable legal credentials.
“The Kentucky Republican also highlighted that Wilson’s confirmation means that there will no longer be any circuit court vacancies for Trump and the GOP to fill. ‘There will not be a single court vacancy anywhere in the nation for the first time in at least 40 years,’ McConnell said. ‘Our work with the administration to renew our federal courts is not a partisan or political victory. It’s a victory for the rule of law and for the Constitution itself.’” More: https://politi.co/3eyYEaG.
That’s enough to make a maggot puke.
So we’ve lost the DOJ, and now the judiciary is stacked for a generation or longer. We must have a Nuremberg-style trial at the end of the dystopian nightmare, one in which Mitch McConnell gets a starring role and hopefully a last cigarette.
