Eberly: Sorry Sen. Cardin, but Judge Gorsuch is mainstream

By Todd Eberly

In a recent interview, Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin argued that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was no mainstream judge and described him in some cases as “more extreme” than Justice Samuel Alito.

Maryland’s other senator, Chris Van Hollen, has echoed Cardin’s statements and has announced his intent to filibuster the Gorsuch nomination as the well.

The Democratic filibuster is expected to trigger the so called “nuclear option” where Republicans change Senate rules with a simple majority vote and eliminate the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees.

That statement is Cardin and Van Hollen's wya to say something without simply sounding like a typical partisan politician! Thank goodness we have the intelligence to see through their cr@p!

If anyone is out of the mainstream it is Ben Cardin. All regular, normal people have a job to earn their living. Ben Cardin has NEVER held a job and has sucked off the taxpayers his entire life. If that's considered mainstream then God help us.

At least Gorsuch Doesn't have Chuck Schummers' hand up his ass like Cardin. If I was elected to anything and I had to survive or be taken
amongst the fraternity by the manipulation of ANYONE I'd want to die on the spot. Bob Aswell....Realist
