Three and a Half Predictions About Biden’s Supreme Court Pick

 

Prediction 1: To replace retiring Justice Breyer, Biden will nominate a hard-left whackjob in the mold of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Prediction 2: Every Corporate Media outlet will describe the hard-left whackjob as a “solid, centrist, mainstream pick.” (Including Fox News.)

Prediction 3: Republican Senators Murkowski, Collins, and Romney will vote for the hard-left whackjob. Sinema and Manchin, too.

Prediction 3 and a half: The hard-left whackjob may or may not be Kamala Harris. Romney and the other DIABLOs will vote for her.

    What a neat way to move Kamala out of the picture, with honor, so to speak. By the way, I hear that Nancy Pelosi is planning to run again. Fun times.

    CTH says it was decided last year that Kentanji Brown Jackson would replace Breyer.  She was promoted to DC circuit in June 2021 and will now be put onto SCOTUS.

    …at which point Biden dies and President Romney nominates Pepe Silvia as his Veep.

    I think the Harris for SCOTUS prediction is solid. Solves a lot of problems that the BidenGuys have caused for themselves.

    Bidens? Bidengeoisie? Bidenists? Doderists? Wanderists? Vagueoisie?

    What should we call these idiots?

    I think I might enjoy watching Kamala before the Judiciary Committee. But I don’t think she will be appointed. However I think she may be pushed out—needs more time with family—and the new veep would not be Romney.

    I can think of a few ways it works out.  But it doesn’t seem like Hillary would accept VP even if it was a sure thing that Biden was going to resign and she would “ascend” to the presidency.  She wouldn’t want to inherit the mess that Joe and Kamala have created, and if she were then defeated AS THE INCUMBENT by Trump in 2024, wellll…..

    Your major point is well taken; however, “we” did not let this happen. I sure as hell did not let this happen, and very few people I know let this happen. The thoroughly, deeply, completely corrupt Big City Democrat machines caused this to happen with the inexplicable assistance of the Never Trumpers, some of whom prosyltolyze here on this “Center Right” venue, but never, never, never admit the egregious nature of their error. And, here is a full description of the entire weight I give any statement made by Bill Kristol about anything:  [Self-Deleted in compliance with Code of Conduct].

    To the OP, can a sitting President appoint a new VP? My understanding is that Gerald Ford was elevated to President as a matter of structural process when the higher offices were vacated.

    I believe Nancy Pelosi would have to become VP if Harris was to resign to join SCOTUS. The only thing she could do to avoid it would be to resign her seat in the house.

    Kamala Harris is not up to the job of Supreme Court justice?

    What on earth does that have to do with anything?

    She can vote liberal in that legislative body just like she does in the Senate.  Not a lot of deep thought required.  She’s not there to interpret the Constitution.  She’s there to create laws that favor leftism.  Just follow Kagan and the wise Latina.  How hard can that be?

    Her competence won’t prevent Biden from choosing her for the court, any more than it prevented him from choosing her for VP.

    If anybody believes that intelligence and competence are over-rated, it’s Joe Biden.

    No. The 25th Amendment, which is how Gerald Ford was eventually elevated to the presidency, would give Biden the right to nominate a new VP with a vote of consent in the Senate. But with a 50/50 Senate a vote along party lines would be forever deadlocked.

    Yes, my mistake. The 25th amendment applies when everyone is still alive.

    FWIW – I think the Republicans would agree to move Pelosi out of the House.

    OMG . . . the Dems do have a strategy!

    Harris resigns as Veep, then she may or may not make it past the Senate hearings.  Doesn’t matter.  Replacing a turd with another turd changes nothing.  However . . .

    Biden could make a solid new Veep pick, one that would run in 2024, or could even fill his shoes should he “trip and fall” down some steps in the White House.  Hmmm . . . who is known for lots of people showing up dead?
