To the United State Senate:
Re: Supreme Court Nominee Replacement for Justice Scalia
Given that Justice Scalia saw the “Big Marfa Lights,” here are my snarky thoughts.
Rather than bitching and thwarting any name that President Obama suggests to replace Supreme Court Justice Scalia, why doesn’t the Congress and the American people submit names for his consideration? I have a few suggestions.
How about Moses? The Texas State Board of Education seems to think Mr. Moses (did they have last names back then?) was a Founding Father.
How about Ted Cruz? He is the only Republican serving on the Senate Judicial Committee and definitely should recuse himself from the debate. But since he will not do so, please send Senator Cruz your old Dr. Seuss books to assist his filibuster and to assist in his waste of time.
How about Texas Governor Greg Abbott? A handicapped person would complete the official Supreme Court portrait. Goodness knows Governor Abbott has plenty of experience bringing lawsuits against the Highest Court, so he should be able to make rulings.
What if we reverse the process as defined by the US Constitution and let the Congress submit names and then the POTUS will approve?
What happens if you get your wish and the next president gets to make the appointment to the Supreme Court? What if your party is so split that Hillary or Bernie is elected and gets to make the appointment?
Here’s what I’m thinking – I wonder about your thoughts if Jesus was the nominee. I bet you could not even agree on His nomination – hair too long, too white, loves everybody regardless, wears sandals so he must be a liberal, wears a white robe instead of a black one, has super powers like changing water into wine, and last but not least – can perform miracles. Perhaps He can make all of us sane and love and respect each other.
Submit your nominees to The White House, Washington D.C.
