Who Knew Fran Drescher Was Such A Commie? Comments (0)

I think we have a winner for the most left-wing entertainment figure—Fran Drescher, who made her biggest mark playing a big-hearted nanny with decidedly bourgeois taste, won't support any of this year's candidates for president, finding all of them too capitalist.

Even Bernie Sanders, she argues, is “just a shill 4 Billary” who has no integrity.

I guess Gov. Paterson (yes, he was a real person) could've really shaken things up if he'd installed her as a senator back when Drescher campaigned for the privilege.

 
Obama To Nominate Judicial Moderate Merrick Garland To SCOTUS Comments (0)

President Obama will nominate Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, to the Supreme Court today, according to multiple sources.

Garland, called “a fine man” by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) days ago, has impeccable experience (he's no Harriet Miers!).

According to Think Progress, Garland's creed as a moderate jurist is well-documented:

In 2003, for example, Garland joined an opinion holding that the federal judiciary lacks the authority “to assert habeas corpus jurisdiction at the behest of an alien held at a military base leased from another nation, a military base outside the sovereignty of the United States” — an opinion that effectively prohibited Guantanamo Bay detainees from seeking relief in civilian courts. A little over a year later, the Supreme Court reversed this decision in Rasul v. Bush. Although, in fairness, it should be noted that legal experts disagree about whether the decision Garland joined was mandated by existing precedents.

The former prosecutor also has a relatively conservative record on criminal justice. A 2010 examination of his decisions by SCOTUSBlog’s Tom Goldstein determined that “Judge Garland rarely votes in favor of criminal defendants’ appeals of their convictions.” Goldstein “identified only eight such published rulings,” in addition to seven where “he voted to reverse the defendant’s sentence in whole or in part, or to permit the defendant to raise a argument relating to sentencing on remand,” during the 13 years Garland had then spent on the DC Circuit.

Garland is also 63, so would not be likely to sit on the court for 30+ years, adding to his appeal as a compromise candidate who would still be a giant leap away from the hard-right Justice Scalia.

Obama appears to have outfoxed the Senate Republicans, who have refused to so much as meet his nominee, by presenting them with a moderate who should for absolutely no reason by denied this position. If the Senate blows him off, the Democrats can make hay of it all through the election. If the Democrat (likely Hillary Clinton) wins that election, the nominee could change or stay the same and we'd still have a far more open-minded person on the Court. If they confirm him, he ain't Ginsberg, but he ain't Scalia, and the court tilts to the left.

I'm going to miss this president.

Polls Show Trump Winning FL & IL, Not OH; Clinton Ahead In All Three (But, What's Up, IL?) Comments (0)

A batch of new polls promises that Tuesday night will be ... unsettling. Or very, very, very settling, as in nominees could be settled.

Worth noting: Florida and Ohio's delegates are winner take all on the GOP side. This Tuesday involves voting in those states plus Illinois, North Carolina, Missouri and the Northern Mariana Islands (for Dems).

The polls show Trump cleaning up in Florida and Illinois, but losing Ohio to Kasich, who is, at this point, no more than a spoiler/contest-convention-hopeful. Rubio/Kasich? Romney/Kasich? Cruz/Kasich?

The polls also show Hillary ahead by miles in Florida (I don't particularly understand that) and Ohio (ditto), but leading by a slim margin in Illinois, her actual home state. This sort of makes sense in that I don't think Illinois feels like her home state and Illinois has a very Michigan feel (but so does Ohio, so..?). It would probably embarrass her to lose Illinois again; last time, Obama was such an Illinois hometown hero, it was a foregone conclusion.

What would work out best for the Democrats on Tuesday—presuming Hillary is going to be the nominee anyway, which regardless of your preference is a pretty safe presumption—if for her to win them all, relegating Bernie to “you did surprisingly well, but are not going to win” status. He's already had a big impact on the race, so I wouldn't say he should or will quit on a dime ... (Keep reading after the jump)
