As more and more reports of Clarence Thomas’s opulent gifts from weirdo billionaire Harlan Crow come out, calls for Senate Democrats to do something grow louder. Unfortunately, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is Dick Durbin.
Durbin’s one of the up and coming septuagenarians in the Democratic gerontocracy that’s doing as little as possible while Republicans seize the courts despite being being overwhelmingly unpopular. They’d rather protect the feelings of Dianne Feinstein (D-Dementia) than the future of the nation. And why not? The rest of their days are measured in pudding cups rather than on a calendar.
