How they will attack Amy Coney Barrett.

While the spot is not open yet, it is a decent bet it will open in time, so let’s throw out how they will attack her and how it should be countered.

1 - Kavanaughing her with sex allegations is out of the question. She is a woman, good luck with that same tactic.

2 - The race card. She has two adopted minority children. Not gonna work.

3 - She is a practicing Roman Catholic. So is Stephen Colbert, who the left loves; not-to-mention there are many leftwing Catholic judges. If she is no good for the court based on that, then neither are they.

I really feel this woman has her bases covered. They will try and fail. I do not see them getting to a point of a last minute hearing on her like they did with Kavanaugh.

1. Financials, maybe.

They’ll ask for financial records so old she doesn’t have them, and then demand to know what she’s hiding. That’s my guess.

2. They will attack her for her Christianity.

They will say it will make her biased. They will say that since she is pro-life, she is against the rule of law. It's ok to be a christian if you are pro abortion, that's why those on the left get a pass.

3. Yes. Lefty hates Christrians. Catholics are just the most visible.

6. I think they hate the evangelicals more but the Catholics are easier targets

However, Catholics are also much more sympathetic. They have a long history of good works for the downtrodden, the evangelicals get grouped with the TV preachers.

10. So "Lefty" HATES evangelicals.

Quite harsh. Someone refers to a group as "Lefty" and yer all in without question.

So do tell, what is your definition of a "Lefty", and how do they differ from a "Righty"?

11. If there is any religeous groups the left and progressives do not like, it is the evangelicals

Since evangelicalstend to be the most active in voting and supporting faith based issues. Catholics are easier targets, but are probably less hard core opponents. Sort of surprised they do not take on the Mormons, but most serious lefties are urban and LDS is more common in the suburbs and small town. The one religion lefties seem to be afraid of is Islam. They excoriate evangelicals over gay issues but tolerate worse behavior from muslims.

12. You unequivacally stated that "they", i.e. "Lefty",

HATES evangelicals. Those are your words, not mine. As "lefty" is IMO quite ambiguous, as it differs significantly depending on the source, I suggested you provide a definition of same, which you failed to do. For example, some distinguish between the two as merely being on separate sides of the political spectrum.

I hope you would agree that if two parties cannot agree to, or as in this case one refuses to even supply, a definition of a widely used term then any further discussion is pointless.

So please try again. Exactly WHO are those you and Da Mannn, who you defer to, refer to as "Lefty", and upon said definition what evidence do you have that this group actually HATES evangelicals?

4. Expect a 'let the people decide' argument if it happens in 2020.

And expect cocaine mitch to issue some vague 'harrry Reid says hi' response, around the time ACB is confirmed.

7. I am not a Christian, but would be fine with her on the court

Then again I would have been fine with Merrick Garland and am good with Kavanaugh.

Part of me expects Trump to pull a different name out of the hat just to screw with his critics.

8. True...

Politically...

Trump has to appoint a woman.

So realistically it's Barrett... Or

Meg Ryan, b. 1964 Former USMC JAG.

Joan Larsen, b. 1968 6th Circuit Court of Appeals

Allison Eid, b. 1965 10th Circuit Court of Appeals



Trump likes ACB because... Dems hate her the most!

9. I fully expect them to go with #2 adopted children notwithstanding

They will find some useful minority idiot to claim she used a racial slur against them. Preferably a black person of course.
