If you’re familiar with Monty Python’s ‘The Holy Grail,’ you know the scene between King Arthur and the Black Knight quite well.
If you’re not familiar with this movie STOP READING this right now and go watch it. Now. Seriously. Shoo. You are missing out.
Anyway, that’s exactly the scene that popped into this editor’s head when reading Kamala Harris’ tweet where she gets all big and bad about Trump’s SCOTUS nominees. Like she honestly thinks she can do a damn thing to stop it?
The President’s list of potential SCOTUS nominees are complete non-starters. They are conservative ideologues, not mainstream jurists. We cannot and will not accept them to serve on the highest court in the land.

Sorry, Kamala, but thanks to your fellow Democrat, Harry Reid, there’s not a whole lot you can do about it.
Hey, we warned you all way back when.
Oh, you will tho

Not a bit.
And Kamala likely knows this BUT she has to pretend she can stop it so her base will support her and then when Trump appoints whoever he wants she can say SHE FOUGHT IT.
Good talk. You can’t stop it and you’ll be accepting one of the 25 as part of a co-equal branch of our representative republic.

Good talk indeed.
Not much you can do about it tbh.

HAHAHAHAHAHHHA! Bet she thinks the most overturned 9th Circuit is “mainstream”. She also was the AG the CA pregnancy centers sued. ???https://t.co/CvWrrMe45T

D’oh! Hey now, the 9th Circuit is a beacon of objectivity and law.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.
Oh, our sides.
Bet you’re really wishing Reid didn’t go nuclear now, aren’t ya?

We’re not entirely sure why, but this totally cracked us up.
LOL! These are the top jurists in America, with unsurpassed knowledge of the Constitution. The people you want have no real knowledge of the Constitution and are out-of-touch with the mainstream (as are you).
America isn’t like California.

Karma is a real @HillaryClinton huh? ??????

Not quite, but one day when she ‘grows up,’ maybe.
"Mainstream" apparently doesn't mean what you want it to. You consider anyone to the right of Lenin to be a right wing nut job.
You have no credibility and no platform other than "Hate Trump".
Get a grip, madam. Your side is losing, and you refuse to understand why…

Which only means they will keep losing.

You know maybe calling Republicans a bunch of Nazis knowing that you have to work with them later I wasn't the brightest idea?
You earned this.
