Also keep in mind you cant filibuster this. Remember when people saying DONT YOU DARE take away the supreme court filibuster when it was obama.  So of course that was the first thing trump did. So this will be Jammed through...because they dont want this after the midterms

In a way republicans played this well holding up the supreme court. Because they knew Republicans factor in the supreme court in voting more then Democrats. So that makes people turn out who might be on the fence. And people were saying "It now way you can hold up the court for 1 year. The dems will come at you to hard"

But then the republicans went

"Naaa the dems are pussies" and did it. Yea it generated some heat from that...but not much.

Elections have consequences. Well, that and Mitch McConnell is a piece of human garbage who I hope gets mauled by a gorilla. Slowly.

But But Heard some commentators say Dems could filibuster for FOUR YEARS!!!! The nom

Dems failure is they didnt tell the importance of the supreme court. Given what the rep did with obama pick they should of REALLY hammer this...by not letting them steal a suprem court pick. Since in important on voting laws, wages, campaing finace, social issue, basic human rights. Voting laws are going to get fucked with. Preproducrtive right are going to get fucked with. union stuff will get fucked with. Like the travle ban ruling probally wouldnt have happen if it was a leftist picks...yes evil if was the the evil neoliberal guy. That ohio shit probally wouldnt have hapen

Some reporter say trump wont pick someone that out there. Becuase he want to do it before midterms. But why. No republican going to vote against his pick if it before mid terms. It nothng Dems can do to stop them. If you were for money out of politcs...how you doing to do that now even if you have a progressive president next time. How with this supreme court.  We had a change for the the court to lean left for the first time..well since maybe ever. And lean HARD left with Kennedy leaving..since he was still pretty to the right. He just was not as insane

While I might disagree with some of the Jill voters, I somewhat see what they were doing. If you really cant vote for what you think is a lesser of two evil because they think she would cause world war 3 or murdering reporters. Ir they mad at what they did to  bernie

It the people who stayed home I dont get. Because if Jill got 5 percent that means more funding for 3rd parties, which massivly importnat Or the ones that screams we need 3rd parties but only come out to vote for them in the president election is faulty. Becuas they then will have no infranstucture


Or another smart move is if you against close primaries...Bernie running against, register Dem then register back after you vote for him. Be a big fucked you that a next day we see people all unregister...but most arent going to do that

Pffff-HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Nooooo, no no no, the Corporate Dems are waaayyyy to pussy to do that. Their billionaire donors will tell them they don't like the market uncertainty created by not knowing whether a pro-corporate justice will be appointed, and they'll shut up like the good little bitch dogs they are. Sure, a handful of legit progressives will fight, but that's, being generous, maybe a quarter of the dems in power. Might as well be zero for all the effect that many votes will have.

You guys are really freaking out about this huh?
Adult Swim handled this correctly.

Roe vs Wade being overturned along with  a potential detente with Russia might almost make this election worth it.

I doubt Roe v Wade will be overturned.  I remember when people thought Bush was going to do the same thing.  It's akin to when Republicans think any Democrat in office will take their guns any day now.

I think  restrictions with exceptions for rape/life threatening complications would be reasonable.

But it's entertaining seeing left wing women spaz out and threaten mass suicides in order to murder their children unrestricted. Great for perspective.
