What's a shame is I don't have to read any of these comments to know the vast majority don't like her. They wouldn't like her under any circumstances.

Notice all those articles coming out within a couple of days after Barrett's nomination was announced. I seemed to recall that in the 1950s and 1960s that, with the exception of Abe Fortas (a crook nominated by LBJ), nominees sailed through with hardly a whisper of controversy. This current fuss is what happens when the Supreme Court takes on the role of a super-legislature, one that can't be voted out and never admits to mistakes. Nominating a new justice becomes like electing a new president.

The left basically taught everyone that law is politics, then lost to people who were better politicians than they were. The sad truth is that they have been defeated. Their wailing about Barrett just confirms it.
