So instead of voting, Trumpletons are going and blocking early voting entrances for people that are voting. Just like the old saying - The moronic apples don't fall far from the cult leader tree.

Susan Collins just said that the person elected in November should nominate the replacement judge.

This is the wisest statement for any middle ground candidate.

Last night ActBlue shattered their hourly donation record twice. Two other Democratic downballot fundraisers also broke records last night.

Whatever happens. This is far more motivating to Dems than Reps and I don't really see how there's any debate here. 99% that they will place a nominee during the lame duck session. Doing it before the election would pretty much ensure the demise of the vulnerable Rep Senators. Right now, they can make the meaningless statement - "I believe we should not confirm a new judge before the election." Sounds good to those that don't pay attention. But again, meaningless.
For Dems, they now have a huge motivation to get to the polls. They know Trump will place someone, and with a 6-3 SCOTUS, you can be sure that the Senate is now top of mind, and importance. It may not bring voters out who weren't going to vote already. But I think it will bring out those that were not really motivated before, and will keep those that might have waited to vote til later, and then somehow end up not being able to, to vote early and be sure to be heard. Add to that a higher amount of donations and volunteers to make sure we have some counterbalance.

Shockingly, Susan Collins, actually made the meaningful statement, that the person that wins the election should pick the nominee.

Of course it will.

After Trump installs a hard right judge on the bench everyone's good to go.

In fact that might be the only saving grace - if trump realizes that there's literally no reason for Republicans to support his BS anymore now that they have their court.

Trump had no problem trying to dismantle every last thing Obama did, after all, so why shouldn't we play by those same rules?
What are the rules for reversing and removing as many judicial appointees as possible?

I’d argue the very dangerous precedent set forth is that rules don’t apply.

This is the next generation of what Pelosi/Pelosi/Gingrich gave us.

Congrats on your judges. All it took was selling your souls to a philandering criminal who's been responsible for more abortions than your local Planned Parenthood.

Just like Jesus would have wanted, amirite??

It’s time to break this shit up and figure out a new path forward.

There is no United Anything. There’s going to be a lot of pain, a lot of absolute shit but i don’t see how we reconcile anything.

Break the country up.

Yet she'll vote for Trump's nominee with furrowed brow.

This. Trump and the GOP are getting to do whatever the hell they want, rules of law and norms be damned. So if the Democrats wanted to follow that same playbook if they take back power, and conservatives had a problem with it, well.... I don't know what else to tell them.

Mind, I honestly doubt the Democrats would go that far, even if they had the opportunity and means to do so, because they're just not that kind of party. But considering how drastic the situation currently is, and how much effort it's going to take, if the Democrats win, to clean up all the mess Trump and his buddies left behind, it wouldn't surprise me if their efforts did require having to do a few things that aren't normally done, because they're doing so in response to a president who did things that presidents normally don't do.

And considering the fact that Trump is so compromised and was impeached in an election year over attempts to manipulate our elections, those would be rather special and serious circumstances that may require special and serious responses. If it were a Democratic president who'd been impeached for trying to manipulate elections in their favor, I guarantee the GOP would try and find a way to undo their policies or appointees or things of that sort.

Of course she will. She's a zero integrity sell out, and Baker endorsed her last week.

I can't imagine a worse fate than selling your soul on a daily basis to Donald J Trump. And that includes his kids and the rest of his family.

Not to mention that before he declared himself to be a pro life Republican (save for forced hysterectomies and kids in cages and trying to dismantle the ACA including for people with pre existing conditions and covid deaths it is what it is), he was a pro choice Democrat who donated millions to pro choice Democratic politicians.

But DJT is nothing but an empty vessel means to an end. The emptiest most corrupt vessel imaginable. Ho ho ho that boat, gently down the stream.
