A group of Senate staffers inside a DNC committee meeting audibly griped and groaned after Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement was announced Wednesday.
“Justice Anthony Kennedy has just announced that he is retiring,” said public address announcer.
“Oh my God!” a meeting attendee cried.
“Not that he’s been any good on any of these recent decisions, but he was the one that was usually persuadable,” said another.
A third person seems to have broken into tears, as a fourth can be heard saying “this is not good.”
