Four Republican Senators (Collins, Murkowski, Romney and Grassley) are on the record as opposing looking at any nominations until after the election.  That's enough to deny Hypocrite Mitch a majority.

I'll believe it when I see it, of course.  I don't trust Republicans any further than I could piss a boulder.

Sad, but she lived a good life, like my mom.  But if you idolize dead Jews you are a Christian or a Marxist.

Dig up dead Bill Graham?  That would be cool for Halloween.

Obama is wanting that position.  Vote for Joe, maybe help Obama get his dream job.

I don't follow Susan Collins around watching her, but from what I've seen she always holds out as undecided until two days before the vote when she falls in line with the party.  I wouldn't count on her unless I were a Republican.

I was sorry to hear about Ginsburg tonight.  She was probably my favorite judge.

Learned it a few mins ago. Sigh. I'm so sorry, guys.

I was selfishly hoping she could stay with us until 2021. She was one of the good ones.

I would be happy if none of the SCOTUS ever get replaced, since that is my least favorite branch, so no problem for me if they wait until 2021.

Pretty much, but she did go on the record... she's in enough electoral trouble this year that she can't afford the slightest mis-step, and she knows damn well that her rolling over and playing dead on Kavanaugh is exactly why she's in trouble.

Yet another reason we need to get Trump out of the White House in November, before he can fuck us over even more. We don't need another joker like Kavanaugh making a mockery of the Supreme Court.

It's five GOP Senators on the record opposing a vote on a SCOTUS nominee in an election year.  Lindsey Graham even dared people to keep the tape of him saying so.  His re-election race is neck and neck -- if he rolls over and plays dead for Senator Yertle and the Oval Orifice, I give it about five seconds before the ads start airing using that video... with, say, 'hypocrite' or 'liar' being appended to his name.

T.rump's short list apparently consists of three women. I wonder how they found three ladies he hasn't molested?

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”
Mitch McConnell, FEBRUARY 2016

“I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination."
-- Lindsey Graham, March 3th, 2016, on blocking Barack Obama's Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland.

"Well, Merrick Garland was a different situation. You had the president of one party nominating, and you had the Senate in the hands of the other party. A situation where you've got them both would be different. I don't want to speculate, but I think appointing judges is a high priority for me in 2020."
-- Lindsey Graham today.

I would be willing to bet my life's savings that we will have a brand new conservative SCOTUS justice in place prior to the end of this presidential term.
