Video Games

Everybody be flip-flopping. :lol:
Yup. President Obama in 2016 was still calling for a vote on Garland in October.

Hoooo boy. RBG was a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, and I rarely agreed with her, but she was a brilliant and dedicated jurist. The timing of this is gonna be a huge trainwreck.
