Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I, Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, is at it again. Relevant quote from Her Imperial Majesty, with my comments:
“What I would like to see is a democratic majority that actually has the chance to make that choice right now the Democrats have very few tools at their disposal to stop the Republicans from going full speed ahead and engaging in the kind of unprecedented behavior as they did with the Garland nomination. So I’m not in favor of either unilateral disarmament or Defcon-10. I think there has to be some effort to try to get back to regular order, try to get back to having a system, a process in place so that we are not subjected to the hardball behavior of the Republicans that we saw in the Garland nomination, and we’re not subject to the outrageous denial of the information that was requested on Kavanaugh.
It’s worth pointing out that Senate Democrats had several times as much data on Judge Kavanaugh as was presented for prior candidates.
“I mean, there can’t be one set of rules for Democrats and one set of rules for Republicans.”
“That’s one of the reasons why people don’t have any confidence in the Congress. How can you? You don’t know what’s going to happen from day to day.”
This is true; back in the day you didn’t have shrieking maniacs being led out of Senate hearing chambers in handcuffs during the confirmation process of a Supreme Court justice nominee. And, pray tell, who were those shrieking maniacs? Hint: They weren’t NRA members or College Republicans.
I remember back in the Thomas hearing when senator bird was asked what he was going to do, and he said in a situation like this we should give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country. And that’s what the Republicans should be doing right now, from the White House down Pennsylvania avenue to the Senate, give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country.
So, True Believers: Is Her Imperial Majesty running again in 2020? Because this interview sure seems like it’s intended to position Herself for another run. Republicans all over are salivating at the thought, but who knows? Besides, a nasty primary fight between Her Royal Highness and Fauxcohantas Warren would sure be entertaining.
