This Could Be Significant

The Acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has taken a stand:

In a letter to the Justice Department, Yates wrote: “I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right.”
“At present,” she added, “I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful.”

Yes, Trump will fire her. But if we can block Sessions (if we can't get three Republican motherfuckers to vote against Jefferson Fucking Beauregarde Sessions III we should resolve to dissolve the Republican Party next time the Democrats are in power; they're domestic enemies), we could slow some things down.

Or maybe it will accomplish nothing.

Still, Sally Yates is a hero tonight and I'll be raising a cold one to her later this evening. And next time we have a Supreme Court opening we get to fill, she should be on the short list. But goddamn, that seems so far away.
