The case for and against confirming Barrett - The Onion has it right

'Potentially inappropriate to appoint justices right before an election as noted by Judge Amy Coney Barrett in 2016.'

Read the rest here:

EDIT: Removed the three letter abbreviation, I think that's only respectful of Justice Ginsburg.

Stop with the ACB. Republicans are trying to make her out as on par with RBG. She is not. She is Amy Barrett.

I've only used that because the media has been using her full three names ... I presume that again is her or the Repubs' intentional choice.

Maybe I'll start a new nick for her, just as I have for Orange Dump and Cadaverman. I'll have to think for a bit... maybe Amy Creepy? Seems to fit.

They desperately have wanted her to be “cool” and acceptable. “Hey, the left has AOC! Our turn, right? Hello?”

RGB was truly badass. She earned more cred decades ago than Amy “lookit all my kids, that’s how you know I’ll be a great SCOTUS judge” Barrett ever will.

Ehhh, I like Amy Creepy better. To call her either Christian or Barbie is insulting to Christians and Barbie. I don't think most Christians believe in things like speaking in tongues, and Barbie has much better hair than Amy Creepy.

You are correct about programming thinking with the initials gambit. They are suggesting they are on equal footing, at least subconsciously by using that format. Far from it as people realize she is an inexperienced whack job. Whatever ex-CIA think tank operation came up with that might be the same outfit that suggested corporations are people.
