Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Prime Time SCOTUS Nomination: WTF?

Dismal Don's pick to fill the open Supreme Court seat is Neil Gorsuch, a constitutional originalist who is anti-abortion, anti-contraception, anti-gun control, anti-LGBT, anti-labor, anti-consumer, anti-environment, anti-regulation, etc.  He pretty much fills the deplorable basket.

That Gorsuch is a right-tard's wet dream does not surprise me.  What does is that once again, our greedy whore media allowed itself to manipulated by Trumpistopheles.  A prime time announcement of a SCOTUS nominee is unprecedented.  And an unwise sell-out.  The damn "event" was hyped throughout the 90 minute local and national TV news window.  "We're interrupting our normal programming for special coverage!  Be sure to stay tuned at 8:00 p.m. for this really big announcement!"  Horseshit!

We'll have a hard time ending this circus if the media keep giving free publicity to the goddam ring master.

As for this court nominee, I'm sure the Dems have not forgotten the GOP's shabby treatment and obstruction of Merrick Garland.  I hope they filibuster Gorsuch till hell freezes over.
