I think we all know this is going to happen.

Like I said before, “I’m not sure which administration created this.”

It doesn’t have to be about Trump to criticize it, nor does it get a pass because it wasn’t Trump. The bottom line is the system is an egregious violation of our rights.

And it think where it can get you when someone not-responsible is president. You don’t think he wants to use it? Aside from being peed on, what would make Donald Trump more wet than to be able to complain directly to your phone?

Actually accomplish something and not just sit around shooting themselves in the foot for 2 years is step two.

Win in 2020 is step 3.

It's a long road ahead. I have zero confidence that the Dems can accomplish step 2.

Ahhhh, gotcha. Apologies for misunderstanding. In that case, yeah, I definitely agree I don't want to spend time on that crap.

Wall Street Journal is reporting that the FBI investigation found no supporting evidence for the claims against Kavanaugh

Well doesn’t surprise me given the very short and very limited investigation! This guy will be confirmed sadly.

True, and sadly at the end of the day, on top of him being confirmed this will be loss for the Dems. This solidified the right’s view while the left is left with egg on their face.

Polling on this issue also looks bad for Heitkamp and Manchin.

The thing to do now is use Kavanaugh as a left RvW rallying point.

It’s a divisive rally call for both sides.

Just brutal and for decades to come. Unless the Dems can rally women and millenials (lol) it’s an uphill climb.

I don’t feel that worried about Manchin but Heitkamp is in real trouble.

We’ve known that the Senate map is horrible for the Dems this year. Taking back the Senate was always a long shot. The House looks good.

The bigger problem is what the Senate tells us — that we less and less live in a representational democracy. An enormous amount of political power is concentrated in the hands of a minority party. And the core of that minority is focused on cruelty towards the majority.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Fewer people decided then 2016 election than saw two Joshua Tree stadium shows.

On the bright side, putting Blackout Brett on SCOTUS should help the D’s in November.

So am i over analyzing or overreacting when i state that with Kavanaugh getting on the SC, and thus GOP controlling all 3 branches of Government, that they are not going to give up that power ???

While polls show Dems holding a lead in the House, we also saw the same thing for Clinton.

I’m sure there’ll be some October surprises and I’m almost sure Russia will fuck with the elections

It’s no guarantee that Dems take anything back.

Also in other news, Pence is blaming China for hacking and seems our rhetoric has been beefed up towards them. Pence is a Domionist nut who believes he’s been chosen by God to do battle against non Christian nations

Your concerns are absolutely on point and the GOP will do everything they can to suppress the vote where they can.

We can’t let them.

And Russian influence on everything — even Last Jedi reviews (!!!) — is not to be underestimated.

It's official.

It's all Amp's fault.

Maybe.

On the other hand they have the SCOTUS for decades.

Pretty clear which matters more. And the Dems don't have the balls to impeach Kavanaugh or Trump.
