A new survey by the Brennan Center for Justice shows just how out of touch the five right-wingers on the Supreme Court are. According to the survey – 69% of Americans reject the Supreme Court’s Conservative argument that unlimited corporate spending in our elections won’t lead to corruption.

On the other hand, only 15% of Americans believe the Supreme Court ruled correctly in its Citizens United case. To put that in perspective – 34% of Americans believe in ghosts, 23% have actually seen a ghost, and 19% believe in witchcraft.

That’s right – more Americans believe in witchcraft and ghosts than believe in the Citizens United decision.

I would like to see a poll on how many people actually know what the Ruling for Citizen United really says and how much thier opinions are based on the Mis-information put out by pundits.

Will Democrats Filibuster Neil Gorsuch?

After months of talking about "resistance", Senate Democrats finally appear to be putting their money where their mouth is.

After days of testimony, Senate Democrats have seen enough of Neil Gorsuch - enough to know that they're going to try to filibuster him.

Chuck Schumer made that very clear during a speech yesterday on the senate floor.
