A post on TomCat's blog. One thing this week which seems to me to demand the intervention of the Greek Furies.

All of these stories are so very sad. Unbelievable! The list is scary! How low can he go? Pretty low, imho.
Of course...the Republicans will shout and cheer for this guy. What a total A--Hat!
I wanted to see Merrick Garland to be in the SC, we see/heard where that went.

Furies, you've got your work cut out for you with this one. Best to each of you!!!

Thank you, Joanne for post.

Thanks, I think...a couple of these horror stories, with apparent intentional ignorance of the law involved in decisions, are hard to stomach...most worthy of the furies Joanne

From Wikipedia: Gorsuch is a proponent of originalism, the idea that the Constitution should be interpreted as perceived at the time of enactment, and of textualism, the idea that statutes should be interpreted literally, without considering the legislative history and underlying purpose of the law.

I don't think you can get more conservative – and heartless – than that, and these philosophies make him about the worst choice for SCOTUS, which doesn't only ultimately checks if an earlier ruling is carried out correct and fair, but also must seek adjustment for outdated laws. Given Gorsuch's record, there's no chance of that happening for the next 40 years or so if he's appointed.

His rigidness may also be a disadvantage to Republicans, but Gorsuch has opined that giving money to politicians while running campaigns is a "fundamental right" that should be afforded the highest standard of constitutional protection, known as strict scrutiny. That is probably why the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation put him so high on their list and what made Drumpf pick him. And it should make even Manchin, or any other Republican on the fence, embrace him, so you may reconsider having Megaera and Tisiphone join Alecto in stiffening Democratic backbones and having them RESIST & PERSIST to the bitter end.

Ah, a young Scalia-Alito-Thomas clone. If he's confirmed, I hope he's bitch-slapped by RBG, gets a whopping case of hemorrhoids, and is haunted nightly by the ghost of William O. Douglas.
