You know, I have this kind of a loose rule that I try to live by. I tend to try to avoid talking about shit that I know absolutely nothing about. Hell, I’m perfectly capable of making an ass of myself while talking about shit I’m conversant in. Why gild the lily.

With that introduction, Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Tom Cotton. Sitting GOP US Senator, obvious constitutional nincompoop, and motor mouth extraordinaire. Who obviously doesn’t share my philosophy.

Tom Cotton is furiously incensed. Which is nothing really new, he seems to live his entire life in a state of perpetual snit. Cotton’s cause de jour for the week is the disgusting spectacle of seeing US citizens peacefully protesting in front of the personal homes of lowlife judicial terrorists like Sam Alito and Brewski Brett Kavanaugh. And dammit, Cotton is As mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!

Cotton found the nearest Capitol Hill camera crew, and promptly vented his spleen; This is intolerable! We have far left mobs piling up in front of the personal residences of sitting judges, screaming at them while they’re actively considering a decision! And the silence coming from the White House and the DOJ is inexcusable! These people need to be rounded up, thrown in jail, and charged with a federal crime!

Jeez, the movie Network had nothing on this bozo. Question, Captain Vigilante. Exactly what federal crime would you like the protesters charged with. Illegal tamping down of the grass? Noise abatement curfew violations? Grammar violations for badly printed signs? What?

OK shitbird, class is now in session. In this country, we have a pesky little thing called the First Amendment. It came first because the founding fathers loved it the most. It allows citizens the right to publicly assemble and peacefully protest their government’s conduct. And whether you realize it or not, those 9 national nags in black muu-muu’s are federal judges. That’s right, we pay their salary. And when they’re about to fuck over 51.6% of the American population, we have the right to bitch about it. Period. Full Stop. I just wonder if he’d be so apoplectic if they were gathering in front of Sotomayor and Kagan’s houses?

But Cotton’s Trumper tantrum is also the height of hypocrisy. Because somehow or other, I don’t remember him running purple faced in front of a camera when a bunch of semi literate MAGA thugs toting AR-15’s tried to storm the Michigan statehouse to threaten the lawmakers from the galleries as they tried to do their job. Maybe I was out of town that week. And I sure as shit don’t remember Cotton screaming himself hoarse when another mob, or maybe the same one, of slobbering Trombies stormed to the front of the house of the Michigan Secretary of State, armed to the teeth, and screaming STOP The Steal! while she was in the house, trying to decorate a Christmas tree with her daughter. I must have been knocked out for my toenail fungus surgery that day.

Clearly Cotton’s ridiculous charade is exactly what it looks like. A desperate GOP attempt to make the leak the sole focus of attention, rather than the actual content of the leaked draft. Because that is toxic sludge for them going forward. 61% of Americans are telling the GOP in polls that they’re full of shit, and they’re telling those nitwit justices the same thing in front of their houses every night. Party on Wayne! Party on Garth!

  1. Yeah, I have not heard one GQPer say what law exactly is being violated and I too have been listening closely. Run the tapes of these nuts, dem ads ready to go.

  2. I don’t remember him having a cow when those two idjits in St Louis threatened peaceful protesters with firearms, either.

    • You mean peaceful protesters peacefully protesting some random White people they didn’t even know on their lawn after having broke a locked gate? Sounds kind of like breaking and entering to me. But then,again,I’ve never picked random people out and harassed them because of their skin color.

  3. The dumb dumb think it violates 18USC1507, but a lawyer friend told that that is Chapter 73 and covers only criminal law, not civil cases.

  4. Darn it, I should have saved the link to the DU post which told of the protesters outside of the Kavanaugh home that someone told a protester they should have some sympathy for his neighbors. The replay was “WE ARE his neighbors!” And, it appears, that was correct – the protest was largely composed of people living in the immediate neighborhood.

  5. I’ll be showing up at your house with a few hundred of my friends and we’ll stand around shouting, waving obscene signage, disrupting the flow of traffic and attracting a large police presence as we peacefully protest our objection to your opinion. So, when your children are afraid and crying as they ask you why so many scary people are shouting and waving signs with threatening messages, just tell them you support them and to just toughen up and get used to feeling like your life’s in danger because that’s the new woke reality.

  6. You’re cray, cray.
    The SCOTUS gets paid for by tax dollars… Most are not. I’m not deciding how to interpret the Constitution, the SCOTUS is.

    Do you feel the same way about protestors outside all politicians homes, or just where children are?

    I mean,when a bunch of 86 year old grannies took a self-guided tour through the Capitol Building,you guys said it was the French Revolution,so….

    “Question, Captain Vigilante. Exactly what federal crime would you like the protesters charged with. Illegal tamping down of the grass? Noise abatement curfew violations? Grammar violations for badly printed signs? What?”

    18 U.S. Code § 1507 – Picketing or parading

    “Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”

    It’s a pretty light sentence,really. I’m sure the 86 year old grannies would love to trade places with you,but you don’t have to worry because the government wants your kind of speech. They actually probably paid for and organized those “protests” in the first place.

  8. You just demonstrated that your loose rule is really loose, and that you have no understanding of the situation. Then you stooped to the typical liberal tactic of name-calling. You should be ashamed. But liberals have no shame.
