You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is

"Never get involved in a land war in Asia." But only slightly less well-known is this: "Never play poker with a Kenyan Marxist Socialist."

Word leaked today about our Sekrit Communist President's plot to pack the Supreme Court after the death of Reputed Patriot Antonin Scalia:

He's planning to nominate a moderate Republican Latino who's now the Governor of Nevada.

Said Guv, Brian Sandoval, was previously nominated to a federal District Court seat by Obama's RINO predecessor G.W. Bush, and was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2005.  Sandoval then left the federal bench in 2009 to take the executive position in the Silver State.

Obama is fucking brilliant. By considering a Republican, and the first-ever male Latino, for the job, he basically dares Mitch McChinless and the bare GOP majority to deny hearings and a vote to one of their own.  If that happens, the 2016 campaign will be about the Senate composition as much as about the Presidency- and here's why:

Our new President- be he (or she) our first female, first Jew, first Canadian or first space alien to hold the job- will take the oath of office on January 20, 2017.  But the new Senate gets sworn in on January 3rd; this election's third of the open Senate seats includes a larger-than-usual component of vulnerable Republicans, some of whom are already polling badly for going along with their party's "no hearings, no vote, no nothing" stance on Scalia's replacement.  That could give Lame Duck Obama more than two weeks to nominate a far-left radical, or Saul Alinsky, or Karl Marx, or, hell, even himself, to the job with a potential Senate majority to confirm the nominee before even a Potential President Asshole takes over.  Even cooler would be if Ginsburg and Breyer, the older members of the Court's liberal wing, announced their own resignations between Election and Inauguration days if that Senate configuration was known, giving Obama the potential for three out-the-door long-term liberal appointees.

Moral: take what you can get if you can get it, assholes.  Because the will of the people could result in far better consequences if you keep up this alpha-male crapola.
