The portrait of a HYPOCRITE. Graham and people like him are concerned with only one thing - their power and money for their benefactors. They could care less about the people of the U.S. or having a functioning democracy.

The monster turds have zero shame.

This man is soulless scum.
I wonder how they can sleep at night.
I guess if you have no conscience, like a mass murderer, you can function pretty well.
Sleeplessness is for the rest of us to wrestle with.

he recently said the that unemployment would increase by $600 over his dead body. He finally found a cause to die for: stop working poor from getting a little extra money. And y’all are saying he has no conscience.

U.S. political institutions have lost their legitimacy.

vampires don’t sleep at night. They are busy sucking the blood out of whatever democracy is left in the United States.

Politics is the practice of gaining and exercising power.

Someone should tell the Democrats about that.

Couldn’t agree more. Elections have consequences and this is merely another example. I’d expect Democrats to do the same if circumstances were reversed.

With each of these naked hypocrisies the American people find themselves further and further entrapped in a political insane asylum.

Ultimately the entire structure will collapse, but not before horrendous poverty, death and likely nuclear war is foisted upon the world by people like Trump and Graham.

These are very dark and cold days, but are the result of the stupid electorate of cowardly, close minded Republican voters. Let them eat their guns, money and bibles.

Lintseed and Beijing Mitch make such a lovely couple. Hard to tell who has the more punchable mug.

One step away from total shamelessness. Stalin–or Putin for that matter–would make certain there would BE a vacancy. I hate giving them ideas.

Reptilians apparently have no need for sleep. That’s the only way I can explain it…

The fact that the U.S. senate exonerated a pathological liar; a man with no morals or scruples; a man who has a rap sheet as long as your arm; a man who hangs out with porn stars; while cheating on his wives ( it would not surprise me also with Melania ); man who cheats on his taxes so much that he is so terrified he took it to the Supreme Court; and a man that rapes women, including one in daylight, in a women’s dressing in a New York Department store and too much more to post here, corroborates your post 100%!

These old rich white men know their time is coming to an end, they are grabbing anything they can get before being voted out of the political circus. One of the few things left they can do is to pack up the courts with extreme right wing judges.

We need to smarten up republicans. Part of the reason for setting precedent is to AVOID hypocrisy.
Maybe Pelosi could try to stop the appointing of other federal judges as well. We must wait for the people to vote in November. Sounds just as stupid as it did when Garland was screwed over.

Republicans are such psychotic assholes.
And too often, the Democrat leadership* lets them get away wit hit

Clarence Thomas’ remaining SCOTUS tenure is likely one generation at best, not in conformance with the GOP’s goal to stack courts with young fascist judges who are likely to remain on the bench for at least two generations. Graham is simply notifying us that Thomas will retire in 2020 to enable Trump to appoint a two generation fascist judge…probably Scalia’s son.

I don’t even want to think about anything happening to RBG this year.
