Thursday Short Cuts

“Pro-tip: If you don’t want one unelected justice to be worth so darn much, don’t used the court to make laws.” —@hale_razor

Upright: “Judge Kavanaugh seems to impress anyone with whom he crosses paths — at least those who haven’t blindly announced, in a fit of partisanship, their opposition to this nomination before he was even named.” —Mitch McConnell

The BIG Lie: “[Republicans] use the one nonelected branch of government, the judiciary, to sneak people onto the Court.” —Chuck Schumer

Braying Jackass I: “I’d like [Trump] to go to one of his rallies and say, ‘We don’t think that we should protect families with preexisting conditions.’ … He wouldn’t dare say it. But I’ll tell you what he will do: He’ll sneak a Supreme Court justice onto the bench who will do just that.” —Chuck Schumer

Braying Jackass II: “President Trump should not meet with President Putin alone. … The president needs to remember that, as Commander-in-Chief, his duty is to protect the American people from foreign threats, not to sell out our democracy to Putin.” —Chuck Schumer

Alpha Jackass: “We’ll be DAMNED if we’re going to let five MEN — including some frat boy named Brett — strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights.” —NARAL

Non Compos Mentis: “I will sue when the Supreme Court [overturns Roe v. Wade].” —New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (Good luck with suing the Supreme Court.)

Dezinformatsiya: “Based on where Americans stand on the issues … do you think it’s appropriate to continue to take such a strict, originalist view of the Constitution, given it’s 2018 and not 1776?” —MSNBC anchor and “living constitution” advocate Katy Tur (For the record: “The year the Declaration of Independence was ratified, the Constitution was not written and signed until 1787.” —The Washington Free Beacon’s David Rutz)

Village Idiots: “Some more establishment, corporate Democrats get very scared by this term but if being a democratic socialist means that you believe health care, housing, education and the things we need to thrive should be a basic right not a privilege then count me in.” —actress and New York governor candidate Cynthia Nixon

And last… “Pro-tip: If you don’t want one unelected justice to be worth so darn much, don’t used the court to make laws.” —Twitter satirist @hale_razor
