Look, I understand why frustrated blue-collar workers in the Rust-Belt states voted for Trump. When you’ve been screwed over by both major political parties as much as they have, you tend to do irrational things like vote for someone who has about as much in common with you as you would with a sheep dog.
Let me state this as bluntly as I can. If you think for a moment that Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because of the way he handled the Clinton email server investigation last year, I would strongly advise you to stay out of Vegas for the foreseeable future; you’ll lose your shirt and
Golfers call it a Mulligan, named after the golfer David Mulligan who, after slicing a shot on his first tee, replaced his ball with another. He originally referred to it as a “correction” shot, but later amended it to say it was a Mulligan. The term stuck and today it is widely understood by most
Let’s start with the good news: First, the decision of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was unanimous. All three judges – one of whom was appointed by a Republican president – rejected the Trump Administration’s request to stay the Temporary Restraining Order of the District Court. So much for this being a political
While Democrats rightly insist that the vacant seat on the Supreme Court was stolen from Barack Obama and should do everything in their limited power to prevent Donald Trump from filling it, there is another, potentially more cumbersome problem that could gum up the works, and not for Democrats but for the GOP. Did Mitch
If you needed any further evidence that Elizabeth Warren should be Hillary Clinton’s running mate, all you had to do was watch her speak at the ACS Convention. Usually I don’t pay much attention to speeches from politicians. Most of them are boring and as predictable as dirt. We’re great, they suck, yada, yada, yada.
Okay, so Merrick Garland isn’t Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Who is? One thing he isn’t, though, is another Antonin Scalia. And that’s good enough for me. Barack Obama’s decision to nominate Garland to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court came as something of a surprise; most believed he would pick Sri Srinivasan, who is fourteen
Okay I get it. On paper it made sense. A moderate Republican replacing one of the most conservative jurists to ever sit on the Supreme Court. Kind of like Eisenhower replacing Reagan as president. Politically, it would’ve put Mitch McConnell and the GOP in a very tough bind. How do you justify blocking a nominee
The reality of the situation that this nation finds itself in, for lack of a better word, can only be described as grim. In an election year where it seems the impossible becomes possible, with the candidacy of Trump serving as evidence of the absurd, the situation just became a tad more complicated. On Saturday afternoon,
I’ve never been one to hold back and mince words. I’m not going to wax poetically or pine over the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Legal scholars will trip over themselves heaping praise on him, and they’ll be quick to point out how brilliant a jurist he was. So what? He was a Supreme Court
