pretty stupid for the Democrats to play their hand on this nomination, considering they are replacing the devil incarnate scalia. Not much at risk of changing.

They should have held out if Kennedy or a liberal SC had to be replaced under this buffoon.
:werd: wrong hill to die on

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is slamming vitamins right now

It's going to suck for them when they die defending the wrong hill, and don't have filibuster available when ginsburg or breyer drops dead.

This whole OPPOSE TRUMP AT ANY COST NO MATTER WHAT plan seems like the dems are just shooting themselves in the foot.

say either one of them dies while Rs have senate. What's stopping McConnell from just doing this then? The ability to keep court conservative for the foreseeable future is hard to pass up.

The thing is, if they had acted like reasonable adults for the first however long and then made their stand at that time, that's a lot different from what we have now, which is that they're shrieking like hysterical retards at anything Trump does, and they're digging trenches to block a judge they ALL approved of and loved 11 years ago. They could have looked like intelligent people with ideological disagreements down the road when that happens, instead of crying babies.

Anyway, what's the problem with that? I don't think there's anything that specifies the court has to be half judges who respect the constitution and laws of the united states, and half loons who think their personal feelings should rule the country... am I wrong on this?

So in this example every D by nature is a loon.
