If I had a quarter for every time in the last 72 hours someone told me that Vice President Kamala Harris would be President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court pick, well, I could buy a large bottle of root beer.
Here are some recent texts:
“This is how they get rid of Kamala. I’ll bet money it’s her.”
“The intrigue will be if they try to unload Kamala by making her Supreme Court nominee. People are saying this is the route to make Hilary president without her having to be voted in.”
“Kamala will get to cast the tie-breaking confirmation vote — for herself!”
And my favorite conspiracy:
“Breyer retires, Harris to court, Hillary to VP, Joe to be suicided, Hillary to be president.”
I quickly rebutted these, and the one fellow didn’t yet take the bet.
You may recall I have no time for Harris; heck, I have a whole page to prove it.
In essence, she’s a vacuous bigot who fails at every job because she is unqualified, inept, and disinterested. I wrote the moment she was selected — only because of skin tone and gender — that she was the worst running mate option.
So let’s again make it clear: Kamala D. Harris will not be nominated to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Harris has no qualifications for the job; no one really supports the absurd idea; and, as she does at everything, she would fail.
Yes, the Biden administration probably is desperate to get rid of her. I can’t blame them.
But the Supreme Court is a lifetime appointment, not three years. Do you want multiple decades of this charlatan cackling and bumbling in a black robe? We already have a token choice on the bench.
Harris is also an authoritarian.
In a presidential debate before she flailed out, Biden informed the Californian she cannot ban rifles by executive order. Insouciant of the Constitution, despite being a former district attorney and state attorney general, Harris scoffed, “Let’s say, ‘Yes we can.’”
Democrats lose so often at the ballot box — and this fall should be similar — it’s clear they want the high court to legislate, but adding the hard left former senator would be hilariously transparent. And she’s only replacing another liberal.
Joe Biden announces he will not consider any person for Supreme Court unless she’s a black woman. This means he isn’t considering 94% of the American population for this job. It also means he’s doing a tremendous disservice to his eventual nominee. pic.twitter.com/4ql23Zmu4c

After the nominee has been selected, there will be confirmation hearings, where Sens. Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar will genuflect; Mazie Hirono will speak unintelligibly; Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, and Mike Lee will compile social media clips; John Kennedy will lend amusing anecdotes; and Lindsey Graham and Chuck Grassley will try to restore order.
And this summer, despite handwringing that “Republicans say the nominee’s history-making credentials — being an African American woman — is not enough to sway them,” probably 50-55 senators will consent to the pick. There will be no “white supremacy” and the show will be over.
Harris has about the same chance of being nominated for the Supreme Court as I do of having dinner with the Queen of England tomorrow.
