MITCH MCONNELL, WILL HE GO BACK ON HIS CLAIM THE PEOPLE SHOULD DECIDE THE NEXT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE?

While respectable people have stayed out of the fray the passing of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia has brought to the presidential election, Mitch McConnell just could not wait to make it political and declared no appointment until after the people vote in November.  Well in a national poll the people have voted, and they want the cry baby Mitch McConnell to stop obstructing government.

Only 43% of the people say the next president should fill the vacancy.  Only 33% say the Senate should block any nominee put forward by President Obama. 

Rasmussen Reports  For the record Rasmussen Polls is known for being biased for the conservatives.

Enough Republican Senators have now said they believe there should be a vote to give Obama a majority of the Senate in favor of a vote.  More polling in the days to come will only force more and more Republicans to break ranks with McConnell. 

Blocking the vote will only work to help the Democrats. McConnell has only further damaged the Republican brand.  Right now the Republicans could force a moderate choice.  But if this battle delivers the White House and Senate to the Democrats then we will see a left leaning nominee.

STILL NOT FEELING WELL

I though maybe on Tuesday night, but by Wednesday morning I knew for sure - I have having a full attack of diverticulitis.  Other than a liquid died and bed rest there is nothing any doctor can do.  A sustained 101-102 fever will get you an antibiotic from the VA. I could have gone yesterday because I have been at a sustained 101, but there is no way I could have made the drive and then sat there for up to 8 hours as a walk in.  Because of liver damage I cannot take Tylenol which is made with acetaminophen.  When you have diverticulitis you cannot take aspirin or aspirin family based products.  They can encourage bleeding.  So I am drinking a lot of water and allowing the fever to take its course.  My diverticulitis on a liquid diet normally clears in three days.  Even though I have diffuse diverticulosis, there is only one little bastard which keeps on getting infected.  It is at the very end of the sigmoid colon.  The other diverticula while there, never get infected.
