  • This is a lightly edited version of a post on Threads. #
  • I understand why the Dems don't want to be the first to use the new rule passed by the Supreme Court, but I think they should consider this plan:#
    • Arrest the members of the Supreme Court who just voted for the new rule about presidential immunity.#
    • Nominate six replacements, sorry no Repubs this time.#
    • The Senate ratifies them.#
    • Once they're installed, they hold an emergency session to restore Roe v Wade, and to undo all the other crazy BS they did and then revoke the new rule, and re-assert the rule of law that especially applies to the president.#
    • And I don't know what they do with the ones they arrested but frankly I don't care. Leave them in jail until they figure it out.#
    • And it's about time Trump was arrested and held without bail, so he can't do any more damage to the US while awaiting trial. #
  • Patrick LaForge, a longtime friend who works at the NYT: "I think the distinction here is that the president can't be prosecuted for violations of law but they would still be acts unsupported by law that a court could block or an agency could refuse to carry out. But they sure have created a mess."#
  • My response: Maybe starting to do it is enough to get the courts to undo the mess asap.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
