Yes, and the strict constitutionalists seem to agree that Obama could serve as president via succession. 

Edit: but my assumption is that Biden will appoint Obama to the Supreme Court.

 

I'm not opposed to this, but just to drive the point home I would love to see Merrick Garland get the nod as RBG steps down.  I know, politics, younger, seats, control blah blah blah.  I want to see a little justices for the justice. 
 
I thought Garland was a compromise choice that Obama thought he could get confirmed by the senate

 

He was. And the senate, led by that mealy fuckwit mitch mcconnell jr. blocked him for no legitimate reason.  Supreme court nominees should be a compromise. They should be people that we all agree can make rational decisions that would fairly consider the reasoning from 'our' side, no matter which side that is.  It's fine if they are conservative, or liberal, but they should be acceptable to all.  And Garland should have been. He was a good choice (even if the reason was compromise). He deserves that seat.   I know it won't happen because politics and the culture war we are in demands that we put the youngest possible person in place to have a reliable vote for the longest time. But that reasoning just gives the other side (no matter which side) reasons to question the legitimacy of the court, and it does it ofr the longest time. 

It's really important that people have faith in their government. The problems of the electoral college, and the disproportionate senate representational power are looming along with a growing distrust of the court. If nothing is done, we will eventually reach a tipping point where a sizable portion of the populace won't feel they have any recourse through the system they live under. When that happens what are their options?  If they can't get a 'bernie' style person into the system, they will want to opt out of the system. Then the only recourse the system has is violence to get them to comply.   I don't see how that ends well. Compromise has to happen somewhere. It may need to be forced. I would have given the fuckwit mcconnell jr. credit if he had accepted the olive branch that was offered, but he didn't. So I say offer it a 2nd time. If it Garland gets appointed it shows that at least one side is willing to not go full war political. If it isn't reciprocated later, then there is always time for a real revolution later.

I'd be surprised if Obama would want that gig.

I'm sticking with Katie Porter as the choice I'd like to see him make.  She is acceptable to conservatives (she won Red Orange county), she's bright, she's willing to take on just about anyone, and she has a "home-spun" natural way about her that will play well in the PA, OH, MI swing states (IMO).

Since Joe has promised to select a woman, she might be on the list. I kind of hope he chooses Kamala though. She's a frickin' pit bull who would be awesome at going after Trump while Biden could stay above the fray. And she'd be great in a debate against Pence. Altho there's some talk that Trump will dump Pence in favor of someone like Liz Cheney*. Or Nikki.

I guess I should try the Tim Horton's poutine or something basic like that. I had some at a fancier sit-down place that Welly took us to and dear lord it was horrible. They put like tarragon and blue cheese and all sorts of stuff that sounds like it should be good but it was inedible. 

 

Timmy's poutine is not so good. But neither is their coffee. Tim Bits on the other hand...

So good poutine is the Bigfoot of food then? 

Thanks btw I do what I can.

Coffee and whiskey all day. This is more lenient than what I do but that's the idea.


 

Results?  How long have you been doing it?  How much whiskey is 600 calories?
 

4 months? Or so. It's been fine, nothing dramatic. Down about 25# without really doing anything. I just realized I had a bowl of Raisin Bran today before I was fully awake. Lesson: always drink coffee first. I'm still under this mythical 600 calories but it just means I can't have that apple later. 

A half pint of whiskey is about 500 but it's keto so it doesn't count. At least that's what I tell myself.

600 calories ought to get you a couple of spoonfuls of gravy anyway.{#Wink}
