“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.”

- Cocaine Mitch McConnell, February 13, 2016.

Well if we're not even gonna pretend the court is apolitical then +++++ it, lean in.

 

Bring on court packing 

If they can successfully pull this off AND Trump loses AND the Dems win the Senate I think the Dems might actually try to either expand the court or impose term limits on Justices. In a year with a global pandemic, intense riots regarding racial injustice, hurricanes, and half of the west coast on fire, the Supreme Court is about to be front and center in this presidential race.

If they push this through a lame duck, then I’m with you. I pray better angels prevail, but I assume they won’t.

Some smart Senators could stop it.  But doubt they will and I fear the repercussions

I assume you mean riots if the GOP puts  through a SCOTUS pick. Is that what we have been reduced to? Threats of Violence and destruction to intimidate US senators.

Just a reminder that this situation wouldn’t exist if the filibuster on judicial nominations still existed. 
 

Ok. Please proceed with how the GOP is killing Senate norms. 

Uh wait.  What was the vote to end cloture.  I think it passed with unanimous Rep support and Dem opposition.
