That empty chair on the Supreme Court is worth jack to us if Republican-controlled congress blocks every Obama nominee.— Jay Rachel Edidin (@RaeBeta) February 14, 2016
But by the same token, a Republican president's nominees are only worth the approval of *their* congress. CONGRESS IS SO IMPORTANT, Y'ALL.— Jay Rachel Edidin (@RaeBeta) February 14, 2016
If there's anything we can learn here, it's that she's a hardcore liberal who has issues with the GOP over any opposition they might have to surpreme court nominees, no matter how unreliable they may turn out to be. And no disappointment from her over how poor the Democrats' own conduct is by contrast.
There's another one she posted that's baffling:
If you're a citizen in a democracy, not voting is tacit support for the status quo / will of the majority. That's what citizenship MEANS.— Jay Rachel Edidin (@RaeBeta) February 14, 2016
And what does she mean by "majority"? That could easily suggest she disapproves of conservative majorities who disagree with Obama's politics. Or something like that. Not voting may not be a great idea, but neither is it a good idea to lambast conservatives so cynically.
