Chris Murphy is smart. Every Democratic senator needs to listen to Chris Murphy

I think they do this intentionally just to be trolls.

If I were a SCOTUS nominee, I’d be unable to resist the urge to have my answer to every question about stare decisis be “I will respect the Court’s recent precedents exactly as much as the Court’s current majority respects past precedents.”

Literally any Republican senator could force a vote on literally any issue by simply announcing that they are a "no" vote on Kavanaugh until their pet issue is given a vote.

Sure. Still, I found it surprising, in part b/c the game is ostentatiously progressive on some issues while seeming completely unaware of the way criminal justice politics have shifted. There're pride flags hanging from random buildings, for example, but also Nixonian law & order

It’s a good game, but the plot is like something from a Nixon stump speech on acid. I didn’t find it offensive, but it was weirdly anachronistic. There’s a major plot point where all the inmates break out of prison and somehow take over the entirety of New York City.

I would read a dystopian graphic novel about an academy that grants eternal life to scholars, so long as they continue to place articles in select journals — but kills them instantly if they fall behind.

There is literally nothing in the Constitution that says this. The Constitution requires a degree of process for a criminal trial, not for a job interview.

Twitter would fix so many problems if it let you automute anyone with that X.

Probably the former, but motivated reasoning is a hell of a drug.

I imagine it is only a matter of time before red states start requiring workers to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital if they want to join a union.

The poor cops will have to rely on exceedingly minor traffic violations!

Like, isn't there an oil company they can sue some environmental group on behalf of? Why waste your attorney's limited time with this bullshit?

Obviously this is wrong, but why would a state official choose this particular battle? Pick your spots dude. Not even Alito is going to sign onto this crap.
