The Senate is on track with a rare weekend session to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court by next Monday. Democrats decry the rush, but don't have the votes to block the installation of President Trump's pick before Election Day. https://t.co/YVV8uXHsRl— The Associated Press (@AP) October 20, 2020
The unfathomable thing about the four justices siding w PA Republicans tonight: they would’ve stripped a state supreme court of the authority to say what the law is in their own state.— Steven Mazie (@stevenmazie) October 20, 2020
That’s way beyond right field.
It’s judicial activism on steroids.
Um, not for anyone who actually who’s been paying attention:
Smart move by Senator Harris. Judge Barrett, who never tried a case, was so intent on lecturing a professional trial prosecutor about judicial canons that she didn’t see the trap until after she fell for it. pic.twitter.com/dg0LOOplmu— Christine Pelosi (@sfpelosi) October 14, 2020
Chuck Schumer is calling on Amy Coney Barrett to commit to recusing herself from cases involving the Affordable Care Act and the 2020 election if confirmed.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) October 11, 2020
Schumer says Barrett has "serious conflicts of interest."https://t.co/GB6EFJTXg4
Schumer: “Democrats will not supply the quorum” to Judiciary Committee for vote— Marianne LeVine (@marianne_levine) October 11, 2020
Short version: Our Very Brave Beltway Journalists are preening themselves over their demands that right this minute, Joe Biden disclose his plans on court packing AFTER THEY WATCHED REPUBLICANS DO IT FOR THE PAST TEN YEARS but don’t mind me, I’m just furious over the media compulsion to even things out by pretending Democrats invented partisanship.

HANNITY: “I was surprised Obama left so many judge vacancies.”
MCCONNELL: “I’ll tell you why- I was in charge.”

So yeah, spare us your disingenuous Court-packing Pearl-clutching. pic.twitter.com/yX8gQATtja
You have already packed the Court with incompetent judges and corrupt appointment processes. We will simply UNpack it and undo the corruption the Federalist Society has brought to the appointment process. https://t.co/YM6bq6SPNb— Howard Dean (@GovHowardDean) October 11, 2020
I look forward to hearing Judge Barrett explain the hypocrisy that will permit her to accept the nomination after arguing Merrick Garland could not be confirmed to SCOTUS 8 months before the 2016 election because his views were too different from Justice Scalia’s. https://t.co/aG7paSkrGa— Joyce Alene (@JoyceWhiteVance) September 26, 2020
