Once again, the Democrats prove what we already knew

Abortion

The Democrats continue to be absolutely and contemptibly worthless.[1] It shouldn’t even be news at this point because it’s just the same old thing,[2] but of course the Hill covered it[3] anyway because that’s what the Hill does. But, oh yeah, vote blue no matter who.

And this should be completely unsurprising:

The Supreme Court is set to gather Thursday [May 12] for the first time since the disclosure that it voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, and there’s no sign that the court is changing course from issuing that ruling by the end of June.[4]
