What’s that? A bunch of hairy chested white guys are already huffing and puffing that they will make America great again by blocking any – any! -Supreme Court nominee if Hillary Clinton makes it to the White House.  That’s their latest riff to show a woman that Capitol Hill is still a male force field.    Hurrummphhh!!!

Leading the assault on Clinton before its time are three of the stooges – Sen.John McCain, Sen.Richard Burr, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Yep. Larry, Curley and Moe.

You may recall that it was  McConnell who vowed to make Barack Obama a one-term president on the day that America’s first black president set foot in the Oval Office in 2008. McConnell, a humorless Kentuckian, is a hard nut to crack. So eight years later he’s still trying to mess up the order of things by limiting the Supremes to eight seats instead of the nine that were to be filled for nearly 150 years.

Why? To save a salary?  Ha. Ha.  The GOPers have never turned to prior assessments of unidentified nominees.  Must be something to do with a possible woman in the White House to freeze the court to eight until a Republican president arrives, or Doomsday, whichever comes first. .

If she wins, she should play the game, too,  and nominate someone with the first name of Jesus. Can you imagine a headline saying Senate Republicans had turned away Jesus?

By the way, Burr has had to apologize for joking that gun owners  could place a target on Hillary.. These guys, a la Trump, never know what they’re saying.

    Quite a change from the GOP’s initial cry that the next president should choose the next Supreme Court justice. Being Republicans, they couldn’t be honest and say what they really meant which was the next REPUBLICAN president should choose the next court justice. It’s quite akin to Trump’s I’ll-accept-the-results-of-the-election-if-I-win. Standard GOP crybabies. If they can’t win they threaten to take their ball and go home. Instead of focusing on obstructing everything a Democratic president attempts to achieve they would be better served by attempting to rebuild their shattered party which they self-destructed. Not that I don’t feel they absolutely deserve what they’ve done to themselves. It’s given me a lot of entertainment.
