The fight has already started in the Senate, with liberal warrior Elizabeth Warren taking the spotlight by trying to shame the shameless GOP with a letter from Loretta Scott King opposing Sessions' appointment to a federal judge position in 1986. Based on the fact that the guy is racist as all hell. The Republican senators found it to be too mean to poor Mr. Sessions, so they declared that Warren wasn't allowed to talk about him anymore by invoking an old, obscure, never-used-anymore rule. Mitch McTurtle barely tried to justify this by saying: "She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."
Again, it gives me hope that old fascist regimes (the ones that Republicans have been pulling plays from) never had to contend with always being watched by the common people. Or with Twitter.

Thanks for that rallying cry, Mitch. We will persist.
