Now: To add to the list of stupid ideas coming out of the shadowy, cobwebbed mind of President Biden(‘s handlers) comes this trial balloon: Apparently they are floating the idea of making history’s worst Vice President a Supreme Court Justice. Because, you know, how could she fuck things up even worse? Excerpt:
Two CNN reporters penned a piece on Sunday headlined “Exasperation and dysfunction: Inside Kamala Harris’ frustrating start as vice president.” The article cited nearly three dozen officials in Harris’ office and the White House as their sources, and few had nice things to say.
But there was one passage that caught everyone’s eye.
“Defenders and people who care for Harris are getting frantic. When they’re annoyed, some pass around a recent Onion story mocking her lack of more substantive work, one with the headline, “White House Urges Kamala Harris To Sit At Computer All Day In Case Emails Come Through.” When they’re depressed, they bat down the Aaron Sorkin-style rumor that Biden might try to replace her by nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy. That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” said the piece.
That small “rumor” prompted The Daily Mail to write: “Harris’ approval rating has plunged even further than Biden’s in recent months, with rumors swirling that the president is considering appointing her to the Supreme Court as a backdoor method of selecting a new VP.”
Wow. Just… wow.
Bear in mind that this nomination would stand a snowball’s chance in Mumbai of getting confirmed in the Senate. I mean, Heels-Up’s own party despises her, and there’s no way they would ever get even one Republican to vote to put this cackling harpy on the Court.
But consider, for a moment, the utter impotence of this administration, to even float just such an idea at this – a stupid, stupid idea. I’d point out this is what happens when your primary criteria for a VP candidate are brown skin and a vagina, but that would be belaboring the obvious.
This is just a rumor, maybe not even up to the level of an “official” trial balloon. Still, it sure does look like we’re getting closer to the point where the long knives come out, doesn’t it?
