1. "His pick is getting confirmed regardless. There's no stopping it" In response to Reply # 0
I guess there's an issue of timing. Before the election vs after. But Trump is getting another seat. All the necessary people are on board.
Accepting that inevitability, the question then becomes what can be affected? What can be affected is the 2020 election. A new batch of senators and a president can be put in place to put a stop to future appointments for at least a little while. And maybe they can change the rules to lessen the impact of this appointment.
So I think there should be a cohesive strategy on how his pick is scrutinized to improve election chances. I don't think attacking character issues or weirdness like this handmaid's thing is the way to go.
Talking about the real life impacts of the selection is the way to go in my opinion. Get people talking about healthcare again (Republicans hate when that's on the table). Get people talking about the fragility of roe v wade.
I think Mcconnell is willing to sacrifice a couple of senators to get another supreme court pick. But the right approach could make it more than a couple
