It’s called “the Biden rule,” Kurt. Named after its author, Democrat Senator Joe Biden. You might have heard of him. He was Democrat President Barack Obama’s Democrat Vice President for the last eight years. Anyway, Joe came up with the Biden Rule in 1992 when the Democrats controlled the Senate, to stop Republican President Bush from naming a conservative to the court during the last quarter of his Administration. Some might have considered that a partisan act.
And a Republican-controlled Senate seems, shall we say, somewhat unlikely
to tip the ideological balance of the Senate leftward, Kurt, when they
have been armed with a weapon of pure partisanship — the nuclear option —
forged by Democrat Harry Reid. You might have heard of him, too. Reid
once used Senate trickery to pass ObamaCare over the strenuous
objections of 41 Republican Senators — including a brand-new Republican
Senator sent there by the people of Massachusetts, Kurt, for the express
purpose of stopping Reid’s partisan antics. But Reid was a wily devil
and overturned a couple centuries of Senate rules and traditions to pass
the most partisan major legislation since… ever, maybe.
So if the GOP installs Neil Gorsuch — who earned his previous
position with the vote of every single Senate Democrat — without a
single Democrat vote, it will be thanks to the normalization of
hyperpartisanship… by Democrats.
It might not be a very tasty sandwich, Kurt, but it’s Biden and Reid’s recipe.
"I never support violence(except when I think I can get away with it)!"
Including the mayor:
These asshats are getting worse, and sooner or later the pushback is going to be a lot worse than they expected, and their support from anyone except other leftists will be a lot less than they think.
Of course, they may not care; since they seem to actually believe they're against a bad national socialist(as oppose to their 'good' national socialist selves), they may not care how many people they alienate, and make enemies of.
And when you've got the faculty of universities working to make this worse...
