Who doesn’t love it when a good plan comes together? More than that, who doesn’t love it when their opponents’ own actions come back to bite them in the butt? Both of those things came to a head this week when Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he was calling it a day, opening up a second seat on the high court for President Donald Trump to fill. The announcement caused liberals to lose what was left of their collective mind.

The plan was to elect a Republican president; a box the American people checked by rejecting Hillary Clinton. The butt-biting was that Democrats were so irrational at the success of that plan that they effectively disarmed themselves by using the last obstructionist tool they had – the filibuster – leaving them with nothing but anger and regret.

When President Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to replace Antonin Scalia, Democrats had a choice – oppose, but allow the confirmation of a conservative judge who wouldn’t change the ideological make-up of the court, or go nuclear to appease their rabid base. They chose the latter, effectively leaving them sitting on the sidelines in any future Supreme Court nominations while they remained in the minority.

There was no reason to attempt to filibuster Gorsuch, they knew it would lead to the full “nuclear option” they had exercised when they were in the majority. With the balance of the court not in play, their actions were inexplicably stupid.

I have a friend who works at NIH. Many of his coworkers are absolutely deluded. Many stopped coming to work for days or weeks after the last election. Now the hysteria has been ratcheted up again. He hears them fretting about “ homosexuals being hung from lampposts “ and “ concentration camps being built for undesirables “.
They actually claim to believe these things.

He has worked at NIH for quite some time, and during the zenith of the Obama years, these same people who are in a panic now were incredibly mean to him when they discovered he leaned conservative.
