Readers: How are the Amy Coney Barrett hearings going? Did she truly sit through five (5!) hours of opening statements on Monday? Why couldn’t she have been resting at the Trump Hotel while the politicians talked about themselves?
This video shows that Judge Barrett’s daily driver is a Honda Odyssey minivan. Have the senators therefore questioned her on the big question for 2021: should we loyal Honda owners jump ship to the new Sienna minivan?
If you can live with seven seats, the top-of-the-line Siennas feature these Gulfstream-style recliners:
An expensive option? The Court disagrees! The entire top trim Sienna costs less than a single FAA-certified seat for a business jet.
How about this grille?
For comparison, the 2021 Toyota Avalon:
And the Audi e-tron (electric!):
Who decided that we needed cars with huge grilles?
Circling back to the Supreme Court nominee, let’s check my Facebook feed… From a Democrat who fled Manhattan:
A woman who hates women for the Supreme Court; it’s great, she can join a black man who hates black people (tap dancers get the bad rap but Clarence Thomas IS the ultimate Uncle Tom) and sit with the white guy majority who hates everybody. Bye-bye civil rights, bye-bye civil behaviour. Voting T-rump is the greatest act of self-hatred (and planetary destruction) currently available. Unmasked rage disguised as pride; wear it well. My absentee ballot has been counted in Maine.
From a righteous computer programmer:
I don’t know what Barrett will do once she’s seated on the Supreme Court. But it’s perfectly clear to me what the man who nominated her expects her to do. And it’s perfectly clear to her, as well.
(i.e., even after she gets her lifetime job, her thoughts and actions will be determined by a man)
From Maskachusetts Congresswoman Katherine Clark:
#AmyConeyBarrett says she doesn’t have an agenda. But she does have a record—and it stands as an affront to women’s health and rights.
From a divorced mom, part of the most reliable Democrat voting bloc, over a YouTube of Senator Klobuchar’s opening statement:
Please Vote. We can’t just stand by. We have to turn out. #vote2020 #vote
(but her friends are mostly in coastal elite states that are already 100 percent guaranteed to vote for Presidents Biden and Harris!)
From a university employee who describes herself as a “cat person, voter”:
This is not a drill. If Barrett is named to the Supreme Court, I and millions of others will lose access to health care.
(she needs some tips from folks who arrive via caravan over the southern border! Show up at the hospital, don’t give an address, and say “I’m undocumented”!)
- NYT headline: “Barrett, Declining to Detail Legal Views, Says She Will Not Be ‘a Pawn’ of Trump” (i.e., the nominee talked about people who are and aren’t pawns of the evil mastermind Trump); NYT article body: “I would certainly hope that all members of this committee would have more confidence in my integrity than to think that I would allow myself to be used as a pawn to decide this election for the American people,” she said. (i.e., no mention of Trump specifically!)
