RICK SANTORUM JOINS THE RANKS OF THE DISQUALIFIED!

Okay, here it is.  We all knew he was a lost cause, but last night Rick Santorum joined the club of  those who have disqualified themselves from the Presidency, because he does not understand his oath of office, the Constitution, the separation of powers, the role of the Supreme Court and his belief that Congress has the right to pass laws that overrule constitutional decisions of the Supreme Court.  Guess he never heard of US v. Dickerson (2000) which ruled 18 USC 3501 (congress' attempt to overrule Miranda) as unconstitutional.  Amazingly written by Miranda hater Chief Justice William Rehnquist, it stands almost equal in its defense of the Court with Marbury v. Madison.

Santorum believes the framers never intended for the Supreme Court to be an equal branch of government or the final arbiter of what is, or is not, constitutional.  So he does not feel slighted:  he is a moron, an imbecile and an idiot.

Last night on Rachael Madow's show he showed his total ignorance.   You have to watch this, and if you are not screaming at the screen after about a minute and half, you are a better man/woman that I.  And this guy was (I am so grateful to be speaking in the past tense.) a US Senator.

God, wherever she may be, help us from those who love America, but hate the government that makes us America.  Thank God for Donald Trump.  In the words of Neil Young:  "Long may you run", whether as a Republican or an Independent.  He may manage to sweep the Democrats not only into the White House, but the Senate and, at least much closer, in the House of Representatives.

Speaking of the House of Representatives, keep your eye on Tallahassee and the redistricting of those 8 congressional districts ordered by the court.  Expect another suit and another order, and possibly contempt requests, if they don't do it right his time.

Quelle surprise! A baby boomer, me-generation lawyer is completely in the bag for the Democrat Party!

"Professor", don't you have any updates for us on who is running for County Court judge in 2018?

Apologies, youre right. I got you two confused. As penance I will pretend Hillary Clinton does not race-bait, pony up to any corporation or foreign nation throwing her cash, and never lies to the American people.

I was a Republican all my life. I worked to get Reagan and daddy Bush elected. The republicans of the last 15 years have been such profound intelligence insulting assholes that I've had to leave the party in order to make sure I am not in any way associated with them. The modern Republican doesn't mind armed agents of the government shooting or choking Americans over bullshit or arresting people for "verbally disrespecting" them but screams bloody murder if people are mandated to pay for their own health insurance. The professor has pointed out in detail that a candidate for the presidency does not know the constitution. Rather than respond the right wing fox minion accuses a democratic conspiracy. Fuck you 1:16. Respond directly to the professors accusation or don't you understand it?

focus on the low life's attorneys that act as parasites scrounging for cases from the scum sucking bail-bonds people that dwell in the projects west of the REG. They are the problem. You never see those in federal court or at 73 west flagler street
