What can we say? Vox is gonna Vox.
The Supreme Court faces a legitimacy crisis. Here’s what we can do about it: https://t.co/G5x9xOtg0l

From Vox (sorry!):
But the crisis truly arrived this summer when Kavanaugh was nominated to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy — likely the last justice to frequently vote contrary to what his party affiliation might suggest in some high-profile cases. With his replacement by a more predictable ideological justice, the notion of the Court as an institution above the political fray seemed very much in jeopardy.
And the past few weeks made the situation even worse. Sexual assault allegations, toxic hearings, shocking statements, and shameless political maneuvers over the final days of the confirmation battle led to one of the closest votes ever for a Supreme Court nominee. The debate over Kavanaugh sparked passionate conversations all across the country, took center stage in political campaigns from North Dakota to Maine and generated outrage among senators on both sides of the aisle.
Shriek shriek! Kavanaugh!
"Legitimacy crisis" = "not controlled by Democrats." https://t.co/eCYxnfTJTJ

Notice how every time Democrats lose they try and change the rules or they blame the system. They can’t accept that maybe, JUST MAYBE, their ideas and policies stink … that’s the real crisis.
You know what institution is really facing a legitimacy crisis?
The press. https://t.co/rt38agDJqL

And damn right the media is facing a legitimacy crisis.
"Broken system" = "we lost an election"

Like how they’re attacking the Electoral College now.
Like Rush keeps saying they are out to de-legitimize our form of government. The court, the constitution, and our system of election. They will never stop. The days of compromise, even in the smallest dose, must end here and now.

Sad but true.
Why Democrats have lost all legitimacy as serious lawmakers “conservative majority would block progressive reforms”@voxdotcom constitution not activism!

A 5-4 Court stays 5-4. Crazy legitimacy crisis!

OMG, IT’S THE SAME AS BEFORE.
They are almost too stupid to insult.
Vox sucks. Everybody knows this, right?

All of Vox’s problems with the hearings came from the Democrats. pic.twitter.com/C9UpK18fPk

Kavanaugh something something.
Read As: We lost so we must now erase the Senate, pack the Supreme Court and get rid of the Electoral College.

They’re not interested in changing themselves, they just want to rig the system now.
Good luck with that.
