Why is everyone acting so surprised that the Republican party is more concerned about who leaked the memo than its contents?

In any criminal organization, it is always the whistleblower who is punished.

When this leak came out the first thing I saw was very liberal newspapers doing the same thing "Supreme Court leak is unprecedented" rather than "Oh shit they literally just said every single right enshrined by the courts is potentially invalid". That's coming out now but the obsession with decorum is going to kill people.

@CountScrofula please see my comment about how drafting point and counter point arguments is literally their job .

@MarkS An appeal to "well that's the way it works" is a really convenient way to sidestep the politics.
MarkS · 51-55, M
@CountScrofula it works the way we created it to work .
The system is working exactly as designed .
Believe that. Lol

Like the fake dossier or the hunter biden laptop or....
MasterLee · 51-55, M
@CorvusBlackthorne yeah refuse. Lol

@MasterLee This tells me that your pathetic desire to feel superior to others overrides any desire you may have to educate.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
@CorvusBlackthorne actually it means I recognize you are pathetic and not worth the time it takes to scrape you off my shoe

Cuz that is the republican way. Get the attention off of what is really happening. Benifits the hypocrisy of the supposed law makers and leaders.
boudinMan · 56-60, M
because it is a violation of the law.
boudinMan · 56-60, M
@CorvusBlackthorne and how does whistleblower apply? were the justices doing something illegal?
CorvusBlackthorne · 46-50, M
@boudinMan Three of them were. If this decision is finalized, they will have lied under oath.
boudinMan · 56-60, M
@CorvusBlackthorne oh, so those justices swore they'd never overturn roe vs. wade? i thought there was no litmus test for supreme court justices.
I don’t think anyone is [b]genuinely[/b] surprised that they’re more upset at getting caught doing wrong than about doing wrong. That’s just who the GOP is.
Even during Watergate, it wasn’t the break-in, it was when folks started naming names.

The Democrats do the same thing. Both parties are a disgrace and think they should be able to get away with illegal activity.
MarkS · 51-55, M
It was a draft. Drafting point and counter point arguments is literally their job. Problem is now we know their real job description.
JohnOlinger · 36-40, M
Are you still shadowbanned or did they fix it
CorvusBlackthorne · 46-50, M
@JohnOlinger I suspect that I am not. However, that was the Shadowfire account, and I must do some investigating.

Not surprised at all. They leaked it, anyway. ...it's all smoke and mirrors.
