On one hand, we have some rational and reasonable Democrats talking rationally and reasonably about why selecting a replacement for the Notorious RBG should not take place until after a new POTUS is inaugurated. These rational and reasonable Democrats include Mitt Romney, Princess Lisa “Merkin” Murkowski, and the Ladies of The Bulwark.
On the other hand, we have some Democrats threatening to peacefully protest America to death if they don’t get their way.
So I ask myself, what would the Democrats do if the situation was reversed?
A: They would stick it in and break it off, and never feel a twinge of guilt or shame.
If we had a Democrat POTUS and a 50/50 Senate that was only controlled by Democrats due to the VP tiebreaker, and the day after a landslide victory by the GOP a conservative SCOTUS justice dropped dead, the Democrats would jam thru a replacement during the lame-duck session with a confirmation vote of 51-50. And the news media would back them 110%.
So what should PDJT and Cocaine Mitch do about the vacancy caused by the death of RBG?
A: They should stick it in and break it off. Then in Trump’s second term they should focus on defenestrating all RINOs from the GOP. Disloyalty should be punished.
