Today, one of the more interesting stories on the political newswire is that Basement Joe Biden – in an attempt to rid himself of Sub-Basement Kamala Harris – has a plan to nominate her to the Supreme Court.
Ostensibly, this move would allow someone more favorable to the left to take the reins as VP and than parlay that into a more “credible” challenge against a Trump 2024 ticket.
You know, someone like US Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, who appears – in his utterly unqualified professional capacity – to believe in the “science” of Solar FREAKIN’ Roadways™:
Of course, this is all just speculation – an interesting theory with interesting implications.
Like this one (per Breitbart):
“If she is, in fact, nominated and confirmed, Harris would likely be the first Justice to have failed the Bar exam, the entrance exam to the practice of law.”
While this scenario is unlikely, it’s not impossible.
Supreme Court nominees must only be confirmed by a majority vote in the Senate, and replacement VPs require simple majorities in both chambers of Congress.
With the Democrats currently controlling both the House and the Senate, the votes – if nothing else – are there, if only by a hair. And, naturally, this has to happen soon, because according to the Vegas US House odds and Vegas US Senate odds – the left won’t control either chamber past the 2022 Midterms.
Now, we don’t expect this to actually happen.
That said, we do expect the requisite betting lines to crop up on the Supreme Court odds boards sooner rather than later.
After all, the rumor is newsworthy, and there’s already plenty of speculation surrounding whether or not a current Supreme Court justice will retire in the near future to make way for a Biden nomination.
You know, if the Democrats don’t simply pack the courts.
As for betting lines you can actually go on right now, there’s a fresh batch of “doubles” available at BetOnline. These are wagers where you’re asked to pick the official 2024 Presidential election matchup, and most of the lines have fantastic payouts.
Of course, as with all political betting futures, you shouldn’t bet the farm on these. Remember, the next Presidential election is a long way off, and anything can happen between now and then.
Nevertheless, here are the current odds:

As you can see, most of these don’t make a great deal of sense.
C’mon, man! It ought to be painfully obvious.
But just in case it isn’t, stay tuned for our next post where we’ll break these down and throw some touts your way for good measure.

Joe Biden Approval Rating By December 1, 2021
- TBA (Under 43%, -125; Over 43%, -115)
Well, today’s the day: December 1.
And while there aren’t yet any new Presidential approval rating odds posted for the next month (we expect those to hit the boards in short order), we can take a look at how we – and, presumably, you – did on this line.
As a reminder, we took the over back in early November when the cutoff was at 42%, primarily because we don’t trust #FakePolls anymore than we trust #FakeNews.
As of right now, Biden’s aggregate approval rating – as compiled (read “brazenly skewed”) by the leftist operatives over at FiveThirtyEight – is sitting at a pathetic 42.8%.
Remember when Trump was a media laughingstock and “national embarrassment” at about 48%?
The gaslighting never ends, folks.
