Around Washington it has often been said that we have 3 branches of government: The Executive branch, Legislative branch, and Justice Anthony Kennedy. Good news! But a proper conservative on the bench can sometimes fool people. What seems conservative to us peasantry may not always pass Constitutional muster with a 'constitutional conservative'. But we'll take it.

There isn't going to be a Dummycrat resurgence - not this year, not with some of the awful hatred they've been spreading. Peter Fonda being a case in point.

Conservatives will probably have nearly free reign in interpreting law on the Supreme Court. There will be a reaction. No doubt about it. Liberal SCOTUS decisions made in the 1960's and '70's were major motivators of the conservative movement.

The conservatives on the court have been all over the map on some issues because, being conservatives, they actually look at the legal issues at hand and try to make some legal reasoning. The liberal justices are all lock-step, very predictable, because they don't give a crap about legal reasoning. The just want preferred liberal outcomes, because it's about power, not about building a legal edifice that conforms to the Constitution and provides a sound legal basis for society. Kennedy tried to act like a conservative sometimes, but often ended up writing stupid crap in decisions like Obergefell to justify his preferred outcomes, regardless of legal principles.

Rappers, I, too, am not totally convinced that the Dems will enjoy a comeback in November. Whatever, it will be a fascinating election.

Well, Bob, 'the good Lord giveth and the good Lord pisses in the beer! It was ever thus!

Thanks, Doc, and welcome to D&N!

Wise words, David. We couldn't move forward without swinging left and right.
