Related to my earlier post about asinine comment made by Senator McConnell regarding the need for Americans to have a voice (ain’t that special how he’s always thinking of us little guys???) are some thoughts wandering around the blogosphere this morning.
Actually, Americans did have a voice already. And we gone done and used it. (How’s this puky, folksy way of writin’ workin’ out for ya? Blasted annoying. I know. So I’ll stop. It was a tongue-in-cheek reference to a complete idjit unleashed on this poor, unsuspecting country about 8 years back. I cannot stand that woman. Didn’t then. Don’t now. Will never. World without end and all that jazz.)
Anyway, the conventional wisdom is that Senator McConnell just might have something with his bloviating about not letting President O make any nominations for the vacant SCOTUS seat because the American people must have a voice in the matter.
Here’s the rub that maybe the good old senator from Kentucky missed: we the people, the Americans he’s so concerned about, actually did have a voice. Twice. And we used it also. In 2008 and again in 2012. Two times we used our voice and in so doing, we elected the President of the United States and asked him to act in our stead.
I guess I need to thank Senator McConnell for pointing out this very basic fact.
Do you think he’d take my call?
Tee hee hee.
