Some Friday Political Frolics

First, from the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.03.22 (Evening Edition), Don Surber catches the  NYT Admiting Biden Is In Over His Head and Vox Popoli, The Truth About 2020, like a broken watch, the Russians occasionally tell the truth, when there is no other option. At Red State, Sister Toldja highlitghts a Chuck Todd Meltdown Over GOP Midterm Messaging Strategy that Is 50 Shades of Delicious. Vicky Taft at PJ Media, Biden and Democrats' 'Let Them Eat Cake' Moment in Face of Exploding Gas Prices. "Go live in another country. . .!"

From the AZ SunT, Arizonans for Voter ID Act Makes Ballot, and 15 Election Integrity Bills Have Passed the Arizona House. Democrats apoplectic. From Star, in Tennessee, Bill Establishing Residency Requirements for Federal Candidates Passes Key TN House Subcommittee. This would stop Morgan Ortagus and some guy from running this year. KT at Haut Hair reports that Arizona Governor Ducey officially closes the door on Senate run

Yesterday, I short shrifted the upcoming confirmation tussle over Ketani  Brown Jackson's nomination for the Supreme Court, so this a make up day. According to Da Wire, Hearing Dates Set For Ketanji Brown Jackson Nomination To Supreme Court, to start March 21. At the Daily Consult, Biden’s Supreme Court Pick Faces Little Opposition From Voters "46% of voters say Ketanji Brown Jackson should be confirmed, while only 17% say she shouldn’t." So less than half really want her? Rajan Laad at Am Think thinks (no, not yet) that The confirmation process of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court is an opportunity for the GOP. But also dangers. Vet hard, but vet fair. Mediaite, Tucker Carlson Demands to See Ketanji Brown Jackson’s LSAT Scores: ‘Americans in a Democracy Have a Right to Know’. AllahPundit at Haut Hair shocked at Tucker: Why won't Joe Biden show us Ketanji Brown Jackson's LSAT scores? But he has a point, why bother, she's a judge now, judge her on her record as a judge. Wanna see my GREs? I'm not sure I could find them. WaPoo whines Republicans telegraph their attacks on Ketanji Brown Jackson, "The Supreme Court nominee’s critics on the right have begun an assault, charging that she is a ‘radical’ promoted by ‘dark money’ — and in one provocative case, demanding to see her LSAT scores."   Ilya Somin at Volokh,  Ketanji Brown Jackson on Race and Judging, "At her confirmation hearing for her current position on the court of appeals, KBJ testified that "race would be the kind of thing that would be inappropriate to inject in my evaluation of a case."" But is that what she really believes?  Speaking of Ilya, from the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.03.22 (Evening Edition) Volokh, Ilya Shapiro Shouted Down At U.C. Hastings and  John Sexton at Haut Hair reports,  UC Hastings law school student protesters shout down Ilya Shapiro. Law students who shout down speakers should be expelled. But they won't be. At City Journal, Jim Copeland is  Assessing Biden’s Nominee, "Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will give progressives much to cheer but may also produce some libertarian-friendly rulings." Terence Jeffrey, Biden Nominee Argued Against Free Speech -- Near Abortion Clinics.  At the Wa Free Bee, Biden’s Supreme Court Pick Shielded Top Clinton Aide Amid Email Scandal. At Da College Fix, Academics say Biden SCOTUS nominee should recuse herself in Harvard admissions case, since she sits on their board of overseers. I agree. And from the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.03.22 (Afternoon Edition)  a Flashback from Weasel Zippers, Biden Vowed To Filibuster Potential First Black Female Supreme Court Nominee…

At NewsWeek, Canadian Conservative parliament member Melissa Lantsman For Trudeau, There Are Only Canadians Who Agree With Him—and Nazis. Vladimir Poutine. At PM, Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich SHACKLED in court. Don't give the J6 persecutors any ideas.  Rex Murphy at MSN: Trudeau's inexplicable use of the Emergencies Act must not be forgotten. Sultan Knish, The Left Goes Full Orwell. At the Babylon Bee, Trudeau Suffers PTSD Flashback After Driver Politely Honks To Tell Him Light Is Green "Trudeau has been hospitalized and will, of course, receive free treatment under the Canadian healthcare system, though he is on a six-month waitlist for psychiatric care."

Zero Hedge, US Trucker Convoy Swells As It Moves Across Country To DC. At KOAM Oklahoma, The People’s Convoy rolls through Oklahoma and Missouri, " is now time to re-open the country." Anna Taylor Sassy American@AnnaTay59833185, "The People’s Convoy is now 7,000 vehicles and 30 miles long as per state troopers in OK."   From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.03.22 (Evening Edition),The Federalist: What I Saw At The Truckers’ Convoy In Missouri. "My children witnessed something grander than words can describe—miles and miles of hopeful peace-loving Americans who have come together to protect our rights: the right to come together, the right to make medical decisions for ourselves, and mainly the right to protest when the government tries to chip away at our freedoms."

At Weasel Zippers Ted Cruz: “Most Out Of Touch State of the Union Speech I Have Ever Heard”…. A high bar indeed. Julio Rosas at Town Hall Clean Up Duty: Psaki Explains Why Biden Didn't Mention The 13 Troops Killed In Afghanistan. Not enough time? Scott Johnson had a few observations After Last Night "The stupidity in the speech was pervasive. It is lethal. There is no known cure for it." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.03.22 (Evening Edition),Mark Steyn: The State Of The State Of The Union, "The third-rate Beltway dinner theatre became a substitution for anything real. Tonight America takes it to the next level: third-rate Beltway dinner theatre by a man incapable even of that, squinting as the world burns."

So I left the bins for culture war and J6 untouched for tomorrow.
