I had to jump out of bed early on this Sunday morning, to take a screenshot of this tweet by the Senate Democrats, because, the ‘poll’ not yielding the results the left want, I expect that it will be deleted:
I thank the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for that ad for the re-election of President Donald Trump! In 2016, there were a whole lot of conservatives who were less than enamored with Mr Trump, and it was only the specter of Hillary Clinton nominating Supreme Court Justices; perhaps that was just enough to have put Mr Trump over the top in states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, states he was never expected to win.
I voted, for Justice Kavanaugh, of course, which is why the voting results thus far are displayed. Several respondents posted pictures of Amy Coney Barrett, a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, who was stoutly opposed by the Democrats. It was Mrs Barrett’s nomination which drew Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) criticism of the nominee being a devout Roman Catholic:
The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for for years in this country.
Yup, this is just the thing that will help President Trump win a second term! Conservatives want moral people serving on the courts, people who will take judicial decisions based on the law and tradition and good, common sense, rather than the wild-eyed stuff we’ve seen from liberal judges. Just because not every conservative is Catholic does not mean that most conservative voters wouldn’t be very pleased with decisions taken by Mrs Barrett which were informed by her Catholic faith. I just wonder what rocket scientist working for the Senate Democrats thought that this tweet was a good idea.
Nothing quite like a good laugh early on Sunday morning!
