    speaking of the supreme court, what do you all think about thomas and his wife?

    in a normal, normal time, a supreme court justice might be called upon to resign in a situation like this. a chief justice could maybe lean on someone to resign.

    but we are not in normal times. and thomas will probably stay on and continue to erode the credibility of the highest court in the land.

    She should know better but obviously didn't. At the same time, she is not him and it isn't fair to punish Thomas for his wife's actions.

    but he ruled in favor of things that she was affiliated with.

    he is the only dissent in the 8-0 decision to release trump related records to the jan 6 commission. he dissented to protect her. is that not a huge conflict of interest? 

    and if he is willing to vote that way, what is keeping him from doing the same in other cases?

    The GOP screams bloody murder over anything and everything.

    I understand the concern but I trust that the judge doesn't listen to his wife on how he should rule his cases. If there is solid proof that he did do this, kick him to the curb and replace him with a democrat. I just think it would be hard to prove.

    Him being the only one to dissent on that records case tells you all you need to know....well, if you really care to know, that is.

    Yeah. He honestly should resign. They should look into impeaching if he doesn't. It is a shame they don't really have ways of being held accountable. His wife was literally planning to overthrow the incoming government with the current administration and then he is magically the only justice who dissents? Gee, you don't think he had any inclination that his wife's text messages were in those docs? 

    Shockingly, Fox News mentioned this zero times yesterday, while blabbing about the president's son's laptop countless times.

    I’ve been married for 30 years I’m pretty sure I’d know if my wife was planning on helping and coordinating ways to overthrow a president! There’s zero chance Thomas didn’t know about his wife’s dealings!

    Thanks M.  Strange that my Googling can't come up with a date. 
    If you are right, that leaves a week for the few of the Senators on the fence to go either way.  Sure hope she gets in.

    I read somewhere that if we all asked Google the same question, most of us would get different suggestions for which link to hit.  I think my Google matrix was set up by some cruel programmer who said, "I think I'll fuck with this guy's head and set his up so his Google so that searches make little sense."
    No wonder I lean toward being a bit Luddite!

    Probably the same reason 48 Senators voted against confirming Amy Coney Barrett. She was nominated by the opposing party's president.

    No this is different than that. Barrett was a staunch conservative replacing a staunch liberal and her confirmation was rushed through in a matter of weeks before Trump lost the election.

    This is a liberal replacing another liberal 3 years outside of the next presidential election. These are the types of confirmations that typically garner more bipartisan support.

    I think those days are over and every Supreme Court nominee vote from here on out is going to (mostly) go down party lines.

    No this is different than that. Barrett was a staunch conservative replacing a staunch liberal and her confirmation was rushed through in a matter of weeks before Trump lost the election.

    This is a liberal replacing another liberal 3 years outside of the next presidential election. These are the types of confirmations that typically garner more bipartisan support. 
    I think those days are over and every Supreme Court nominee vote from here on out is going to (mostly) go down party lines. 
    Well there are going to be some Republicans voting to confirm this time for the reasons I laid out. You can more understand them doing that under these circumstances than Democrats doing that in the Comey Barret example.

    honestly, what LEGIT reasons do R's have to not confirm her? 

    Probably the same reason 48 Senators voted against confirming Amy Coney Barrett. She was nominated by the opposing party's president. 
    at first I was annoyed at the response being the usual "well the other side...", but you're actually kind of right. I mean, people decrying ACB for not committing to upholding Roe v Wade, yet saying that KBJ has every right to abstain from answering questions about hypothetical future rulings is pretty hypocritical. 
    I think I'll move to Australia

    LB10 I believe you are not accounting for the importance of belt buckles re ACB
