  • Justice Stephen Breyer to retire

    Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring, Fox News confirmed, setting President Biden up with the first opportunity to fill a vacancy on the high court.

    A source close to Breyer told Fox News that the justice will step down at the end of the current Supreme Court term early this summer.

    A liberal will replace a liberal. Lots of noise as they try to get this done before the elections.

    Cynical prediction: the nominee will be LGBTQ+. Why do I say cynical? Because it won't be the most qualified but allow another check box to be checked.

      I put my money on a black woman, or a gay black woman. Must tick all the boxes...

        Curious if the Republicans will try to destroy their reputation going back to high school like the Dems did with Kavenaugh. I am guessing not.

          Looks a bit like Breyer and dems aren't confident in winning the next election, and don't want to chance a repeat of RBG's death during a Republican president

            I foresee pretty much the same which I think will hurt old Joe. He already has their vote sewn up but to do another Affirmative Action selection like he did with his VP, will be hard for the public at large to ignore.

            If he picks an Elizabeth Warren-Bernie Sanders approved candidate it will be hard to keep what is left of the remaining veneer of his being a moderate, intact.



            Still, as the ultimate long shot I'll again bring up the idea of his nominating Kamala. She's a former State AG and such a move allows old Joe a do-over for picking his replacement.

            I'm always still in trouble again

              With someone Breyer's age a number of things can come up rather suddenly leading to such a decision.

                Biden has already stated he will choose a black woman.

                    That keeps Harris in the running.

                      Yup, but she will have to check a bunch of other boxes, as well.
                      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                        Yeah they already have a black woman. They need LBGTQRSTUV+

                          That doesn't exclude her from also being LGBTQ+. The more checkboxes, the better.

                            They should go trans-species also. Maybe one of those people who think they are a cat?

                              Maybe a trans-gendered white woman who identifies as a black woman identifying as a lesbian who likes men!
