re: #285 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

Mitch is in control regardless of anything Donny wants to do. In no way is it possible that Trump actually knows these judges, or even what he is supposed to do. Trump’s goal is to keep working the religious right, so all Trump has to do is “nominate” whatever name the GOP machine in the Senate suggests to him.

The strangest part of the judicial nominations during Trump’s term (at least for me, as someone who used to run in those circles) is how many of the nominees were just not qualified. There are plenty of competent conservative lawyers out there who have actually handled a sufficient number of cases to be well qualified.
