The Betting Window is Open: Ketanji Brown Jackson v. GOP

Horse Race Reporting: Comin’ round the bend…

Guys, today is the day that Ketanji Brown Jackson faces three Republican Candidates for the 2024 Goat Rodeo, er, the Senate! Will smarmy Ted Cruz, Proud-boi Lite Josh Hawley, and uncharismatic Q-tip Tom Cotton grandstand for the mouth-breathers back home, and what exactly is that bear doing in the woods?

How will the three of ’em address potential voters? Will they show the racists back home how little respect they have for Black women, but do it in such that they have potential deniability when Our Failed Political Press ™ calls them on it? (Trick question! Our FPP ™ will never call them on it!) Will they have video clips to use in the 2024 Goat Rodeo? What is that bear in the woods doing?

Four days of confirmation hearings begin Monday at 11am ET with opening statements from Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Dick Durbin and ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley.

Then the other 20 members of the committee will also give statements, and the day will conclude with Jackson delivering her opening statement, lasting 10 minutes.

I’m predicting that none of the Republicans in the Senate will vote for her (why should they?) and of course the counter-argument is that with a 6-3 Supreme Court, the composition of the 3 doesn’t matter. But just for form’s sake the GOP will be united in their blockade.

Wagers in the comments.

UPDATE 1: The WaPo is live blogging the hearings.

    51-50. All else is commentary. Thanks, Yertle.

    The next 4 days will be a complete waste of time. She should answer every single question with the response, “51-50”.

    From everything I know about her, she’s a strong accomplished woman who doesn’t suffer fools lightly. Maybe we can enjoy the spectacle, and maybe a few Republicans will vote for her as they did in other confirmation hearings…

  3. I have a small hope that tshe’ll squeak through, but my Quatloos are on the Three Amigos Dirtbags turning it into a train dog whistle shitshow of deafening proportions. Dingoes in Australia will wake from a dead sleep to think to themselves “He called her a WHAT??”

    A passel of Greg Stillsons just gonna racist themselves for the base while the impeccable Judge Brown Jackson moves through this fetid sewer to take her rightful place on the Court. Sending her every good wish I can muster and thinking all manner of stabby thoughts for theracist shite-bags who were fine with rushing the federalist handmaiden to do her part in whatever the hell it is that’s their end game.
