Debate tonight, remember.

TUNE IN FOR THIS ONE: CBS, 9PM Eastern time.  The question of judicial appointments – particularly those of Supreme Court Justices – just became really, really important.  Who these candidates would nominate is no longer a theoretical exercise.

RIP Justice Antonin Scalia.

You don’t need me to tell you the implications of this.  My condolences to Justice Antonin Scalia’s family and loved ones. He was a magnificent and eloquent Supreme Court Justice; and he will be missed.

You’ll have to bear with me, folks.

I have been dealing with a lot of people today – nobody in comments, relax – who seem to be determined to play with flamethrowers in gasoline-filled basements.  I am not in a kindly mood. I am, in fact, in the kind of mood that makes me want to bounce spoons off of people’s foreheads.

I’m sure that this will pass by the morning. Or maybe I’ll just start gibbering. Gibbering has its points.

My RedState post on Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s revolting base.

Found here. Short version: …yes, I made the pun. I REGRET NOTHING

My RedState post on Alan Grayson’s Congressional hedge fund.

Found here.  Short version: Alan Grayson was actually managing a hedge fund while in office. And he still doesn’t understand why his own campaign staff was and is screaming at him over that.  Because, hey, Alan Grayson.

Well, yes, the GOP is obviously prepping for a possible Sanders nomination.

Hillary Clinton does still have better odds to get the nomination, but between New Hampshire and the super-delegate fix being in there’s a nontrivial chance that her election campaign will implode on its own. There’s also a nontrivial chance that she gets indicted, honestly – or that the head of the FBI ends up resigning because Hillary Clinton doesn’t get indicted, which would be almost as practically useful, from the point of view of a partisan political hack such as myself*. So, preparations will be made in case Bernie Sanders somehow gets the nomination.  Contingency planning is rarely a bad idea, after all; better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it…

*Yes, of course I want to see the woman indicted. She’s guilty as Hell.  But if the opposition decides to give me a five-pound sledgehammer instead of a ten-pound one, what am I supposed to do? Not swing it?

Oh, yeah, there was a Democratic debate tonight.

Don’t worry if you didn’t watch it: it was on PBS, so neither did anybody else.  I only have even a vague idea what happened in it because apparently ten percent of my Twitter timeline apparently secretly hates themselves, and thus forced themselves to watch the blipping thing.  This will probably give you a good idea of what they went through:

Kissinger. The Bernie Sanders campaign had its fast-response squad respond to stuff about Henry Kissinger. And to think we thought that the Democrats would have trouble connecting with young voters!

My RedState post on New Hampshire Democratic super-delegates.

Found here. Short version: Hillary Clinton is doing unto Bernie Sanders what Barack Obama did unto her. Also: I despise Commies.  But you knew that already. God knows I’m hardly shy about expressing that opinion…

As Dan McLaughlin noted, this is what happens when you elect Democrats. Enjoy, Louisiana!

I have a question submitted for the Townhall Media/Change Politics Town Hall. Please upvote it…

…if you like it, of course.  You can also upvote some of the other RedState Contributor questions, if you care to. I personally think that it’s a pretty good question:

And I’d love an answer to it from all of the candidates.

Democrats inexplicably spurn Republican lifeline in Pennsylvania.

Awwww, shucks.

An effort by Senate Republicans to oust embattled Attorney General Kathleen Kane [DEMOCRAT] through a little-used provision of the state Constitution fell short this afternoon, with supporters of removal winning a majority of senators but not the two-thirds needed.

[snip]

Ms. Kane, who has been charged with perjury and other crimes, faces a second legislative initiative on the question of removing her from office. As the Senate debated this afternoon, the House by a vote of 170-12 adopted a resolution authorizing a committee to investigate her conduct and determine if she “is liable to impeachment.”

Oh, man, it’s a real shame that we can’t immediately have this woman removed from office before the April 26th primary in Pennsylvania. Nope. Can’t do it, more’s the pity. Guess we’re going to have to wait until the middle of election season before the actual impeachment. Golly gee, isn’t that just awful?
