I genuinely hope someone murders Mitch McConnell when he tries to ram through a pick as quick as possible

The rules saying they can’t do a thing really only applies to Democrats

Tell him that if he seats a new justice then after Biden is elected, either Kavanaugh or the new justice will be murdered and replaced with a 20 year old liberal. Malia Obama or something.

If (when) the democrats take all three branches, day one needs to be getting rid of the filibuster and bringing the total justice count up to 13.

This is where they try to run up the score and nominate someone who makes Kavanaugh look reasonable.

They’re going to find someone who thinks that whether the president is bound by the constitution or not is an interesting question

I dunno Chuck, if you fight eventual McConnell horsefeathers on this the way you have all the other judicial nominations the past 3.75 years, we'll see 5 reincarnated Antonin Scalias confirmed before Inauguration day.

Is it better for the republican machinery to try to ram a nominee through(which I’m guessing will be unpopular even by gop governing standards), or is it better to turn the election into judges v Biden instead of Trump v Biden?

GOPers are going to replace RGB. That's that.

The Dems only choice to save Roe v Wade is to pack the court starting Jan 20 and get it done before a legal challenge can actually make it to the court.

Ram through. A confirmed justice is worth more than a 10% improved odds of a presidential term
