      It’s from https://nypost.com/2022/01/26/speculation-ramps-up-about-kamala-harris-as-joe-bidens-supreme-court-pick/ .

      As news broke about Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer retiring, speculation ramped up that President Biden could tap embattled Vice President Kamala Harris to replace him — keeping his promise to appoint a black woman to the High Court while opening possibilities of a less politically tainted running mate for 2024.

      White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday endorsed the unlikely notion that Harris could get the nomination as a way to end to the controversies surrounding her.

      “I think it’s a theory that could be credible,” McEnany said while co-hosting the “Outnumbered” show on Fox News.

      Biden has said repeatedly that he would pick a black woman as his first Supreme Court nominee and Faulkner said that “it’s hard to not to see, at least, [Harris] makes the list.”

      This just goes to show that Louise was wrong

      All you got to be is a black woman to make it (and be stuffed with rice pudding  between the ears).

      If Hillary Clinton is chosen, my feeling is Joe Biden’s existence on this planet will be shorter than expected. Nobody will deny HRC.

      Of course they could be stupid enough to install Hillary. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Then Biden dies/resigns/whatever, and Petey steps in as Veep anyway.

      I’ll be honest. I would rather see Kamala as a supreme than President.

      Though this could be a trap. If Harris indicates interest it could be said that she comprehends how weak her position is, that she doesn’t have support among the party’s establishment, most of the donors, the base, or the swing voters, and has admitted that.

      Or it might not be a trap, but it could become one if Harris plays her hand poorly, and then things fall apart.

      Her presence would lower the collective IQ of the Supreme Court by at least 10%. Not that it has been a place filled with brilliant legal minds since, I don’t know, 1970?

      Nowhere, California to snag VP and mention of SCOTUS.  Especially given her awesomely poor primary performance.  The Dems have no trouble at all throwing other folks with the gender and race cards to play, under the bus.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

        Forcing out Skamala in favor of a gay white man might piss off some of their upper middle class white liberal base, you know–those soccer mom types–so they’ll avoid that by shuffling the Whore for Power to the Supremes where she can whore at large.

        Or maybe they won’t. For Skamala, it’s all about Skamala. And she’s a narcissistic sociopath, so it’s hard to say what will float her boat the best in her eyes.
