Republicans have already succeeded at packing state supreme courts

An article in the Washington Post outlines the recent addition of seats in state supreme courts by Republicans and their actual court packing. The false umbrage at Democrats purportedly wanting to pack the Supreme Court is just more of their ridiculous hypocrisy. For whatever reason, the mainstream media prefers to paint Democrats as the culprits wanting to pack the Supreme Court. Unpacking our courts is what is required. Democrats will have a steep hill to climb after Biden is inaugurated

unqualified by a neutral board.

5. I agree

Republicans have appointed too many inexperienced and unqualified zealots to the bench.

2. They've been doing this for many years...

at all levels. All while whining about "leftist activist judges."

6. Trump isn't the only Republican guilty of projection

When they blame Democrats, we should look at what they've been up to.

7. I won't ever forget Roberts' role in installing Bush as president

He's a right-wing Republican who sometimes disguises himself as a moderate. I don't trust him at all.

4. The Projection is Strong by the Bullies.

Personally, I'd like an 'in your face' response by the Democrats;

eg., " Hell yes we're gonna pack the courts and end your war on democracy".

8. Yes, Democrats need to change their approach

What we've been doing hasn't worked all that well. There's no reasoning with zealots, ever!
