No, “republicans” are NOT blocking the nominee.

Rand Paul is fillibustering a nominee to call out 0bama/Holder’s policy of reserving the power to kill an American on American soil without a trial via a drone strike.

It’s my understanding the Rand Paul filibuster is a different matter.

I don't know but a good many of them do, she's probably a feminista and they seem to go that way.

I have noticed that the Republican parties gonads seem to be growing larger at roughly the same rate Obama’s approval ratings are sliding.

Liberal women are ugly and men never ask them out.

They figure if they look like men then they can ask other liberal women out.

They want their tweeter twiddled and they aren't gonna take no for an answer.

Yes, hopefully they continue. It’d sure be nice to see them keep The Won worked up and on the defensive, he’ll keep lying and many are catching on to that.

"Why do lib-women want to look like men?"

Women who want to look like men, whether in ecclesiastical government or in civil government, are always trouble for women in the church or in society who want to be women of Biblical/Traditional standards.

All I have to do is see a photo like this woman's or a Janet Napolitano, or others like them, and I KNOW ABSOLUTELY that the future for my daughters and granddaughters will be more difficult.

CONTROVERSIAL NOMINEE

You're right as rain, MS.

The enemedia and their love for the RATS seems to effect their balanced reporting.

I guess I really mean they're in the tank for the leftists.
