    Mitch will probably replace her by the end of tomorrow. Also remember that Ted Cruz was on Trump’s shortlist of nominees.

    Fuck! RIP

    You think McConnell gives a fuck about what’s right? He sacrificed the 2018 midterms to get Kegger Kavanaugh on SCOTUS, there’s no level low enough he won’t sink to replace RBG before the election. The Dems had damn well better planned ahead, because shit’s gotten real in the worst way.

    He literally said it doesn’t matter if the they have control of the Senate years ago. All he’s been doing since Trump has been elected has been ramming conservative judges through. This is his coup de grace. Don’t even be surprised if a lame duck Trump fills the seat

    There was a report recently about Trump wanting to put Ted Cruz and a few others on the Court.

    Wow. It just got a whole lot easier for Trump to steal this election. This is devastating.

    The optics of McConnell doing nothing to help the nation with Covid-19 since March over six months, and then scurrying a rushed Supreme Court nomination in the six weeks before an election when his own seat is up...

    He might do it at his own risk. This is literally his endgame.

    The Biden campaign could take McConnell to court to delay it. Not sure they would think to do this.

    RBG's death is sad news for the United States of America. Shame on McConnell if he tries to do for Trump what he refused to do for Obama.

    The issue is the lame duck session. After the election nobody needs to worry. Senators like Collins will know whether they are out of a job in January or safe for 6 years. At that point they won’t care. If you lost, who cares, you are leaving anyways and your Republican buddies will love you. If you won, 6 years from now so much will that it likely isn’t a factor.

    Biden winning and expanding the Court is probably the only option left.

    With Ginsburg's death, the Dominionists have a clear road to impose another judge on the rest of us that will help shape our rightward push for decades. There is no bridge McConnell wont burn to accomplish that. Its LITERALLY the culmination of decades of scheming, manipulation and obstruction of progress. If he dies knowing he stopped America from progressing past white supremacy, greater wage and power disparity in favor of the elite few over the unwashed masses, and anti-Christ 'Christian' fundamentalism for another several decades, he'll do so with the closest thing he can get to a smile on his melted-turtle face.

    This is Endgame for all of us, whatever side of the aisle you stand on, politically.

    This honestly. It will take drastic action at this point or Civil Liberties will be in jeopardy for a lot of our lifetimes. There is no way Mitch and trump wont replace her before the Inauguration if they lose. They don't care about how it looks with what they did to Obama.

    It can't be understated how big this is in the list of tragedies following 2016.

    Oh btw in case you we’re wondering, all those Never Trump Republicans that were potentially going to vote for Biden.... let’s see what they do when the sacrifice is 4 years of Trump for 20 years of 6-3 conservative majority. Something tells me those lifelong Republicans are going to think s bit on it.

    Can’t stress this enough, this is the absolute worst case scenario

    So, Murkowski, Collins, Grassley, and Romney have all gone on record as to not voting on a new SC nominee until after the inauguration. After the shit with Justice Kegger, I just won't believe it until I see it.
