You think I am enraged? Perhaps it doesn't mean what you think it means?

Ridiculing and marginalizing is something people angry at the world do. Not people interested in working with others.

So I don’t think it means what you think it means.

Most people... heck most Democrats aren’t... you make it sound like that’s a biblical text for us. Sorry to disappoint you. I have never met a single person who has ever written or spoken about that book. But it sure did work to scare the dickens out of conservatives.

The Trumpetttes peeing their pants over protests where alt right bad guy interlopers set fires. But neither they nor their fearful leader Trump give a damn that three states on the west coast are up in flames from Climate Fires. Burning unprecedented numbers of acres, homes, national parks, and killing Americans - firefighters, and private citizens, both democrats and republicans. Voters all!

Trump should choose “his” Cuban - Lagoa. She’ll take the bench, then shit on him. Happened to George HW Bush with Souter. Happened to Trump with Gorsech. She knows Trump’s destroying American institutions, democracy, and elections. She’ll use him, then turn on him. Watch. Especially as he becomes even more unpresidential, unstable, and symptomatic.

Why should they? When Trump tried to help stop the riots, the local politicians told him to go back to his bunker.

There he was simply inflaming things. The two items are totally separate issues.

Again, that is only if one of the Conservative justices goes the other way. Which is what I mean when I say he's more worried about a political crisis than a Constitutional one, because whichever Conservative were to cause such a deadlock would immediately become Public Enemy #1 of the entire Republican party.

---------------------------

As to the politics of all of this, now that I've had some time to think about it, while I initially had some reservations about whether it would be political suicide for the Republicans to confirm a new Justice before the next Presidential term begins, I've ended up on the side of confirming one ASAP for the reason that Democrats would then be deflated going into the election. If Republicans either wait or attempt but fail (ie, not enough Senate votes), THAT would galvanize the left to show up in record numbers at the polls. But if they are already defeated on this issue before election day, it may dampen turnout.
Galvanizing People around judges is usually a Republican tactic. Democrats don’t get much mileage out of it. It’ll actually galvanize them if you confirm somebody, not deflate them. I would be very careful if I were the GOP. You’ll have a massive number of enraged Democrats over how it was handled by Trump and McConnell.
This could easily boomerang back as far as with independents. I know of several pro choice people who are usually apolitical that this could coax to the polls.

So far Collins and Murkowski have announced they don’t want a vote before the election. So that’s 2 of the 4 needed to sink somebody.
