Bag of Randomness for Friday, September 25, 2020

Well, well, well, Cinderella decided to bring a knife to the fight.

I’m a very loyal and proud member of USAA, but I liked them a lot more before they started an advertising blitz.

Four years ago, I felt strongly that Moscow Mitch should have held a hearing for Merrick Garland regarding the vacant Supreme Court seat left by Justice Scalia. He said that voters should have a voice, and I believed the voters did when they reelected President Obama. Four years later, I still believe McConnell should hold a hearing for the vacant seat RBG leaves behind, as much as I don’t like it. However, I think Moscow Mitch should be consistent with his actions, and his excuse for this opportunity differing from what happened four years ago is poor and hypocritical. Even though he may not have the country’s best interest at heart for the long term, at least how his actions will affect future Senate actions by creating precedent, I’ll give him this, he makes the most out of any opportunity given him and he’s a shrewd political party leader.

I’m reading John Dickerson’s new book, The Hardest Job In the World – The American Presidency. He quotes Lincoln as saying, “If you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

Dickerson also share’s this story, which proves Nixon had more integrity than McConnell.

1968 was the last time there was a court seat at play this close to an election. A group of Senate Republicans tried to block President Johnson, saying he shouldn’t be able to fill a seat in an election year, but the Republican leader Everett Dirksen blocked them. When those GOP Senators threatened to filibuster, Republican presidential candidate Richard Nixon said they shouldn’t.

I actually remember these being in their restaurants. I think they also had small aluminum ones with the logo stamped in the middle.
