Amy Coney Barrett: not only a Shoe-In But a Leg-Up
« on: October 15, 2020, 07:37:36 PM »
I would not have blamed Ms. Barrett if she had turned down Trump’s nomination rather than subject herself to a Senate inquisition. As it turns out, she powered through partisan posturing, by the likes of Amy Klobuchar, as though she was there to school a Junior High debate team during her lunch hour. She not only acquitted herself flawlessly, but boosted Trump’s political capital. :

“By an 8-point margin, voters say that the Senate should vote on Barrett’s nomination as soon as possible, rather than wait to see if the president can defeat Democratic nominee Joe Biden on election day.“

I would love to be a fly on the wall when she elaborates on her criticism of Chief Justice Robert’s error in his ACA reasoning. It seems Scalia has returned... as a woman.
