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

Ginsberg fucked us by not retiring with a dem prez and senate when she had the chance. That being the case, dems should've started immediately planning for this inevitability.

Of course, they didn't. So as always they'll be playing from behind rather than having had a proactive strategy in place for what was obviously going to happen once Ginsberg made her awful decision.

Once you hit 70 you need to hang up the fucking robe and gavel

Brewsters Million ran on “None of the above!”

My slogan for 2022 and beyond: None of the above...65!!!

I knew that was wrong typing it but left it by accident and it's too late to edit. Damnit.

The affluent "suburban housewives" that Drumf is so heavily courting favor the ACA and support abortion rights. So focusing on the ideology of the nominee is the better strategy.

The GOP favor turning this into a fight over the appointee's personal life. You can see it the way Graham is justifying his flip-flop.

going back to his HS days doesn’t work. You have to go at their positions.

We all did dumb shit in our teens. No one will care if this woman lied on a term paper in HS or college. That only works when the GOP does it to Dems.. lol.
