Republicans say Conservative Activist Judges are better than Liberal Activist Judges.

Republican have no shame. Let’s take a look at their hypocritical stand on judicial activism and the disturbing silence by the media and Democrats .
First, didn’t we have impartial judges once upon a time? Second, why are we supposed to assume conservative activist judges are better than liberal activist judges?
The Republican point is, once you accept the idea that everyone is a strict partisan, activism is no longer a problem. 
That’s when you get what Sen. John McCain puked out of his face hole the other day:

This is why we need the majority.” 

Yea, if only Republicans had a one party system where they could ignore everyone else and politically poison everything, including the judicial branch. That would bring us back to where the founding fathers hoped we’d be as a nation. Imagine if there are two or three justices openings?
Even better, the idea that a complete narcissist sociopath got praise for his own choices for the court…oh, never mind:

Trump has earned praise from some conservatives for floating roughly 20 names, including Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), as potential Supreme Court nominees should he win the White House. 

Yup, Sen. Mike Lee. Why? Holy crap, look at his credentials:

3. Federal Disaster Relief and FEMA should be deemed unconstitutional.
4. Social Security should be unconstitutional.
5. The Violence Against Women Act is also unconstitutional. 
6. Medicare and Medicaid are unconstitutional.
10. Sen. Lee had a minister claim Obama needed to put down his Koran and “come up with his hands out” in surrender to them.
