44. The ignorance is simply astonishing
I work in a large law firm. By and large, the political apathy among LAWYERS regarding a Supreme Court nominee was simply astonishing. Some are Republicans, but when I pointed out that Alito (they didn't get the "Scalito" reference ... sigh) was anti-choice, they were quite surprised! SURPRISED!!

Imagine how surprised they'll be when these laws start getting passed.

I've just f'ing given up on hoping "the masses will wake up."

They won't.
