With just over 3 weeks to go until our long national emergency ends on election day, the 4th Reich and Senate Republicans begin their push to confirm would-be Justice Coathangers Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings today.
As we all know, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Huckleberry Closetcase is facing a very competitive 2020 campaign by surprisingly well-funded Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison, who has now released record-breaking campaign donations. Tellingly, Lady G has not released totals yet, but appears to be seriously out-gunned. One headline trending: “Graham’s last stand?”
Adding further DRAMA! into the confirmation hearings is the wild speculation that Lady G might have the Trump-Virus and that this confirmation hearing could be a super-spreader event. The tradition seating of the hearings would have Graham sitting at the vertex of the senators thus making his droplets available to all.
Late-breaking on the Trump-Virus angle:
This morning’s festivities are the pontificating poltroons each speaking for 10 minutes or so. Late this afternoon, Coathangers will make her appearance (puff of sulfurous smoke optional) and read her dissembling statement.
