Prediction ...

Before this year is out, there will be a lot of Republicans wishing they'd put Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court when they had the chance.

5. You're probably right

But if you want to play the "What if..." game, let's say AG Garland had been approved for the Supreme Court. Who would President Biden have nominated to be Attorney General? Wouldn't that person have been someone of equal veracity and temperament who would uphold the rule of law? I believe President Biden would have found another equally honest and dedicated servant to that role.

In short, I believe Republicans have been running roughshod over our laws and Constitution for so long that any competent and legitimate AG would have the same field day before them at the Department of Justice. Any superficial examination of the Republicans actions over the last 12 or so years would expose rampant corruption and our hypothetical AG would be just as focused as Mr. Garland appears to be.

However, without a doubt, Republicans must be suddenly trying to cover their fat, corrupt asses.

14. You and I know ...

... that Biden would have chosen an AG of equal ability - but the Republicans don't know that.

I'm sure many of them are thinking that were Garland on the SCOTUS right now, a less diligent AG might have wound up in the position.

Keep in mind that under Trump, Republicans were used to incompetent people being appointed to the highest offices in government - and therefore probably assume that Joe would have followed suit and chosen some inept political crony, had Garland not been available.

I, for one, love the fact that the GOP are shitting themselves over the idea that Garland as AG is their worst nightmare - despite the fact that anyone Biden appointed would have been just as bad for them.

8. EXACTLY!!!

As proof that great minds think alike - - - Yesterday I came out of the grocery store, got in my car, turned on the radio to hear a report about something happening to Giuliani. Called my DC attorney lawyer daughter and asked her if she had heard any news about Rudy. She told me of the search and my first comment was: "Republicans will be sorry they did not put Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court!!!"

The fun is just beginning now that we have an AG who actually enforces the law and does not serve as personal attorney for the President.

16. I agree but I also think that the Repukes will never realize the irony

They don't do irony or regret very well. They also aren't much for self introspection.

But that's OK, we'll get it even if they don't.

37. There is no humor in a Republican brain

they are missing the part that responds to humor. When I was a kid I didn't have many friends, but every one of them made me laugh and I made them laugh. That was really the only criteria for friendship or hanging out together, and it usually worked just fine. I am glad that's how it was.

19. When does the fireworks begin?

We have all these investigations into the orange turd and there were all these predictions about how he would be perp walked as soon as he left office. So where are they? Nothing. Crickets....... I don't think they will move on him even if they have proof of all his crimes. This country has never indicted a US president for a crime, let alone tried or convicted.

39. I can definitely see your point.

But I also think that's why these multi-billion dollar lawsuits taking down right-wing media and big name donors abandoning Q-publicans may still play a roll. I hate to think that because it just shows how far we've slid towards fascism. That's where we are right now.

Further, I believe that many Republicans are going to regret hitching their carriage to Donald Trump's ass. Even now, they defend the man. Once he is indicted for whatever crimes he committed, watch as they attempt to cut the harnesses on that ass.
