    Most people use nauseous to mean “feeling nauseated.” But its original definition is “causing nausea.” So someone who’s smelly and has bad breath could be nauseous even if they feel fine.

    You mean like Benghazi? Refresh my memory, which side was constantly, mindlessly chanting “Lock her up!”?

    And speaking of Benghazi, remember Hillary testified under oath for eleven hours. Trump is too cowardly to show his makeup-smeared face in front of the J6 committee for even a single question, and he’d probably burst into flames if he tried to swear to tell the truth.

    The screaming, red-faced urgency shown by guys like McCarthy and McConnell over the threat to Kavanaugh’s life stands in stark contrast to their blasé indifference to the dead children in Uvalde.

    Alito went even farther back for his opinion; he cites Matthew Hale, a 17th-century judge who also sentenced women to death for witchcraft and believed it was okay for husbands to rape their wives.

    Exactly! That’s why I never knew if any of my teachers were married when I was a kid.

    That’s the logic of Plessy v. Ferguson: the federal government should not be telling states whether or not segregation codes are legal, but instead let states decide. As I recall, that didn’t work out too well.

    We’ll see. So, what do you think of Alito’s theory that only “historically grounded” rights are actually valid? Or would you, like Varvel, rather not discuss the actual implications of the draft?

    Be sure to save these takes in case it turns out to have been one of Thomas, Barrett, or Alito’s lunatic right-wing clerks. Or possibly Ginni Thomas, since we know she has no problem with violating the law to overturn an election.

    Anyway, the actual decision is far more vile than the leak, but Varvel knows that, which is why he won’t try to defend it.
