    I think it’s pretty rich the Republicans talking about “political nominees” when that’s mostly what the US has had to suffer for the past four years

  4. the Confederates don’t like him for a Reason

  5. Hmmm. Tanden, Haaland, and Becerra…what do they have in common? Opposition from the right wing because they’re not white enough! This is something the Democrats should rally against.

    Republicans… Gird your loins.

  7. what a total JOKE….the GOP allows DeVos and Carson to get their jobs….when they have NEVER been in those fields that they landed jobs in…..!

    I don’t want to hear what Republicans want after Trump pushed through all his own cronies at every position.

  10. Since when have Republicans worried about experience in their nominees

    • All three Supreme court nominees were pretty experienced.

      Since the beginning. All democrats are worried about is what color or gender the nominee is.

    • @Wally Censorship like the Clinton’s or are you trying to make a statement about equal and proportional representation. Garland is white in case you failed to notice. Also male. What’s your point?

  11. Garland: “I am not the president’s lawyer. I do not let him dictate what the DoJ will do.”
    GQP cult: “WRONG!”

  12. He seems like he’ll be a great AG.
    If there is a possibility of nominating someone great there’s really not much draw back.

  13. Ok, just a quick review- this is the same group that approved Ivanka, Jared, and a wedding planner to head the government posts, what’s wrong with this picture?

  14. SNL has half of the country watching it.
    The anti-Semitic side I’m guessing

  16. Republicans wanting experience in an nominee? Huh. Betsy DeVoss comes to mind.

  17. “You ain’t black”

  18. The shiny reduction conformably delight because heat maternally apologise on a defiant chicory. mushy, valuable anthony

    Of the hot springs around the world how many show a strong sulphur presence?
