Special Edition 3 – -If You Can’t Say Something Nice
A lot of Lefties have the fire right now for a dick swinging Liberal firebrand to take Scalia’s place on the Court. Someone who would go in and just kick over every Conservative apple cart that comes before the court the same way Scalia did to us. Except, they are wrong. The BIGGEST insult to Scalia’s legacy in a moderate justice who would take a nuanced view on the issues and vote the merits of the case. If that means we lose some cases, GOOD, because if our cases are bad then we DESERVE to lose. But, if we have someone who has the long term interest of the nation, who truly sees the Constitution as what it IS, an evolving document that changes over time to suit the needs of the governed, then THIS is the antithesis of EVERYTHING Scalia stood for. I don’t want an idealist on the Court I want nuance, intellect, I want a slightly Left of Center Kennedy! I want a way a more Liberal Roberts, who understand the Court is the last bastion of reason and logic in an increasingly illogical system. I want a slightly liberal firewall to block the derp spewing up out of the hinterlands. Because if we don’t get that, if he appoint a Sanders level Liberal to the court, the stress fractures in our political system are going to bust open like the seams of my work pants when I squat down to pick up a quarter on the sidewalk.
