Feeling Pretty Good Right Now

7 - 2.

Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in the majority. 

Thomas agreeing that the President does not enjoy unlimited immunity from prosecution. 

I can wait to see his tax returns.  I think Congress ought to be reined in if they are just looking for trouble.  The details were always less important than the fact that he was bitching about it at all.

The arguments were spurious and the Justices saw through them.  This delights me. 

I've been worried about our institutions and their ability to withstand Trumpism.  For today, at least, my anxiety has lessened.
Okay, that's the part I'd say in public.  For you, though, there's this:

Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in the majority.  Oh, this makes me smile so hard my cheeks are aching.

Can you imagine the noise from the Orange Menace when he heard?  Can you imagine how pissed off he must be? 

All of a sudden the reality sinks in - he can't always get what he wants.  Even the people who owe him a life-time appointment can say no and there is nothing he can do about it.

He's ruined our country's reputation. He's sending secrets to Putin.  He's creating super-spreader events. 

I'm not a nice person for wishing ill on anyone, and I'm feeling vaguely guilty about typing this, but I'm honest here in The Burrow, and right now my inner bad girl is doing a happy dance.
Big Cuter wants me to emphasize that if the Court had ruled differently, the tax returns would be available to Congress immediately, giving the Trump campaign one more distraction from any positive message they might possibly find to convince someone to re-elect the man.

I don't think anything will change the minds of those who want to vote for him, or those who will never vote for him.  For those in the middle...... if our planless pandemic isn't enough for them, they're already lost.


Talk back to me! Word Verification is gone!
