It's hard for the Democrats, or they're happy that it looks hard for them to strongly oppose Neal Gorsuch. I can say that because I'm only able to trust a couple of them anymore.
I have seen nothing but fawning over Gorsuch on most outlets. I realize he likes to ski and shed tears for Scalia on a trip down the slopes when he heard the news, but the man is nothing near being an honest juror from what I've heard. Let's see some proof!
Actually, I'm with others who say this man should not be allowed to occupy a stolen post, even if he's the world's nicest man.

There's nothing like gettin blomberged whit fake news. But I point out the obvious as only three people even listen to these stupid shows. Look at your blog has 6 hits. Oh boy.
This show matters about as much as a dog pissin on the carpet.
Your facts suck
your maths suck
try asking the elections hackers to do the math from lord monckton to splain what a tard you are for 13 years on climate maths

Manchin should be primaried, but a challenger from his left probably can't defeat him. A Republican in the general might take him --- or his challenger --- out in 2018, and after his vote for Sessions, it's difficult to see how that could be worse. If the forthcoming midterm is a blue wave --- I don't think likely, but it's too soon to predict --- Manchin will remain the most caucus-undisciplined Democrat in the Senate.
Lesser of two evils (a concept for voting I do not take to heart).

Since Brad replied to my previous comment here, as well as in his previous comment, I believe it appropriate to reprint my two replies here:

In response to Press4Pain @2:

Surely it's time to reject the contention that a more progressive Caucus, and therefore a more progressive Democratic Party would be somehow less attractive to voters and therefore blow any chance of regaining a majority in Congress.
If anything, Trump's message, regardless of how regressive it may appear to us, represents a deeply held desire in ALL Americans, and perhaps a huge swath of the human population. That neo-liberalism , embraced by both parties and so many countries, banks and real "bad hombres" for so long, needs to go...permanently.
If you're looking for good news, how about acknowledging that in some ways, even the most ardent Tea Party Republican shares with the rest of us at least a partial understanding of what's wrong with America and the World (political corruption, a history of failure of the corporate media, corporate control of policy, upwards redistribution of wealth etc).
As to who they're willing to trust to address these burning issues...well maybe we'll have to give THEM some time to absorb the reality of it all.
Be that as it may, from my point of view the Democrats have 2 options: business as usual and face a back-breaking rejection in 2018...or surf the call for REAL change...all the way to victory.
It's time to represent the People, Democrats. Or the People are just going to have to find someone who will.

When reading the vitriol written by ... Press4Pain, it's indeed "painful" to imagine that DeVos could make such a steaming pile of ignorance and hatred EVEN WORSE.

Brad Blog was where I coined the phrase "Bullshitistan" years ago.
I was a regular commenter here before I started a blog.
Bullshitistan is still around, unfortunately (The Shapeshifters of Bullshitistan).
But, on the upside Brad Blog is still around to resist Bullshitistan.

I don't get it.
If Don Siegelman was convicted in 2006 and sentenced to 78 months, why wasn't he out years ago anyway?

Larry @ 11
Siegelman was sentenced to 88 months in prison in 2007 and immediately taken into custody but nine months later got out of prison on bond in 2008 as he appealed his conviction. He was later re-sentenced to 78 months and returned to prison in September 2012.
He's still on the hook for ankle monitor, home confinement and media gag order for six months followed by 500 hours of community service and three years of probation.
