Just reached 51 votes. I don't know if the voting is over. This is one Attorney General who will NOT be smuggling weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
Nope. Just blocking the advancement of black judges while calling them boy and complimenting the kkk, as long as they lay off the pot.
Man it'seems like Christmas every day watching the heads explode here. Sooo much winning.
Christ, did Matt just get transported back to 1960, is it back to the future where he meets his mother and the heard guitar licks over the phone for Chuck Berry. What an asshole.
Blocking the advancement of minority judges is just fine with liberals, IF they're conservative.
To block a very qualified minority conservative candidate - who might get elevated to the Supreme Court later - from being confirmed as an Appellate Court judge, the liberals pushed an alternative they felt had less potential. They filibustered the minority candidate repeatedly!
The alternative candidate liberals allowed onto the appellate court?
Mike G, you dipshit--I'm quoting what our new AG admitted to saying himself. And it wasn't in the 60s.
Congratulations to Mr. Sessions, as he's exactly what we need for a new AG. It was nice to see our liberal Senator Collins was actually supporting Sessions, although it will be interesting to see if she opposes any more of the Trump nominations... I'd imagine she will.
Matt, The KKK all across the South were all Democrats. Richard Byrd, the Grand Kleagle was a Democrat senator for about 50 years.
Matt you CS, do you have a source for that. lol
That should be" Mr. Dipshit " , show some respect!
Mike G, are you stupid or willfully ignorant? It's been documented everywhere. It was part of the hearings in the 80s that kept him off the federal bench. He admitted to saying this stuff, but said he was "joking." Always fun to joke about the kkk, especially in the context of the investigation of a murdered black man.
Roger, yes, I know. The solid south was all democrats. Until the republicans came up with the "southern strategy." You know about that, right? Reagan launching his campaign in a Mississippi town where three blsck men had been lynched, and declaring that he was all for states rights?
How about the Atwater (bush sr's campaign manager) interview from 1981--''You start out in 1954 by saying, 'Nigger, nigger, nigger.' By 1968 you can't say 'nigger' -- that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites.
''And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I'm not saying that. But I'm saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me -- because obviously sitting around saying, 'We want to cut this,' is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than 'Nigger, nigger.'''
Sure, the Democratic Party was the party of slavery and Jim Crow. (Of course, the republicans were only too happy to purchase cheap cotton for their textile mills, etc.) But the republicans literally made racism part of their core values after the fact, gladly stealing that mantle and running with it.
I would ask for a vote on Matts' question above.
Sure would have been great if some of the wonderful things that holder said about white people got as much press before his confirmation...........
"Matt, The KKK all across the South were all Democrats. Richard Byrd, the Grand Kleagle was a Democrat senator for about 50 years."
All the racists became Republicans in the 70's and 80's. It's the same people, they just switched parties.
The pundits said that Betsy Devos was the left's best chance at handing Trump a defeat.....looks like even with two r senators' help they couldn't make it happen............Trump just keeps winning and winning....... despite all their hyperbole and drama.

Break up the drug cartels, stop assaults on police officers, bring an end to violence on the streets - all things the lefties are against.
Sen. Tim Scott Stuns the Senate Floor by Reading His Hate Mail — ‘I Left Out All The Ones That Used The N-Word’
Perhaps those racists didn't get the memo.
A Coward says: All the racists became Republicans in the 70's and 80's. It's the same people, they just switched parties.
Just when did Byrd (Crooked Hillary's mentor) and the rest of the racist Dems switch parties? More fake reporting.
I'm sure they're referring to Strom Thurmond. But Dems just hide it better, by using dependence to destroy rather than more overt racial suppression. It's more effective too.
Come up with as many exceptions as you want, trying to argue that Democrats are more racist than Republicans is just silly. Do I really need to try and dredge up every email/letter that was sent to Obama when he got elected?
So Matt you have no source, can't even give me a link to CNN or WAPO on some fake news source somewhere.
Did you copy that shit from somewhere or is it etched in your brain from the 80s
You are full of shit Matt as usual
Is the congressional record a good enough source for you, doofus?
This is confusing Mike G.
Is it now Mr. Dip shit Doofus or
Mr. Doofus Dip shit ?
That WaPo Fact Check doesn't exactly support your position... He didn't admit to any of it, and several witnesses refuted the charges. It's not dispelled - but it's not proved either.
And as I showed in my earlier link, Democrats are happy to impede a minority's career when it suits them. And if they get Gorsuch on the Supreme Court as the result, it serves them right!
Byrd didn't switch parties because he grew to be a decent human being and admitted the error of his ways, you history-denying nutbags.
Odd that liberals can see change in their own, but not in anyone else.
Use the N work 40 years ago, and you are branded for a lifetime!
But a KKK Grand Wizard can still become a good Democrat!
Matt just because your boyfriend Jasper whispers in your ear these facts every night doesn't make them true.
The left with all of their name calling, shaming , hyper drama and physic trauma are just working really hard at ensuring a two term presidency for Trump.....They are so caught up in their own rhetoric they can't see that they are rehashing they same old bs that people voted against in November...everyone knows the definition of insanity....I think they really turned off blue dog democrats and they voted Trump and will do it again.
Mike G is all that AND a bag of chips.
Underminer if you despise me I'm doing good work
