      here is that they ignore this completely. The premise, or premises, of the pro-deal arguments I've seen by their nature [imply] that Republicans are "making a deal," rather than getting their foot, boot, leg, hips farther into the door so they can blow the whole fucking place up.

      I've said it a bunch of times - but again: this stuff is not happening in a vacuum. That is the great mistake of the pro-deal group.

          related. Less judges overall means less justice for regular people. Which means a lot people get the shaft. Justice delayed is justice denied.
