The Democrats’ latest Dumb Idea

Dumb idea

Within moments of Justice Kennedy’s announced retirement, Senate Democrats were immediately demanding that Senator McConnell not take up the confirmation until after the Midterms.

See, McConnell didn’t take up Merrick Garland’s confirmation arguing the so-called “Biden rule.” Specifically, the Senate would not confirm a Supreme Court Justice during a presidential election year. That way the new incoming President could nominate his own Justice.

So now Democrats want to use the “Biden rule” for the Midterms – mostly because they’re retarded.

Speaking of retarded.

Now, set aside the fact that this “Biden rule” concerned a presidential election year.

Trust me. The Democrats know that.

Once again, they’re banking on their base being too stupid to know the difference.

But on its face, this is a really dumb idea.

In fact, the only way this dumb idea wouldn’t be dumb is if there really was a Blue Wave coming and they’re poised to retake the Senate.

Spoiler Alert: They’re not poised to retake the Senate.

Let’s review, shall we?

Claire McCaskill is dangling by a thread. Heidi Heitkamp is probably doomed. Then there’s Tammy Baldwin and John Tester – both of whom are facing a tough battle to keep their seats.

And unless the Democrats manage to transplant every Puerto Rican into Florida before November, Nelson is also at risk of losing to Governor Rick Scott.

With the filibuster rule gone (thanks Harry Reid!) and the Republican majority looking a hell of a lot more secure, waiting until after November seems like an aggressively dumb idea.

The only possible reason I can see for demanding McConnell delay this confirmation is they believe that this open SCOTUS seat will finally fire up their base enough to deliver victory in November.

And in order to think that, these guys would have to believe there’s actually a Blue Wave on the horizon.

Yeah, there isn’t.

And they know it.

Which explains why they’re reduced to sputtering, furious, hysterical mewling.

The Senate Democrats destroyed the filibuster.

They brought this on themselves.

As Donald Trump himself pointed out nearly five years ago:

They’re powerless to stop it.

And they know it.

So aside from giving their base one more reason to “Reeeeeeeeeeeeeee!” what good would it do them to wait until after the Midterms?

All that will happen is instead of Trump’s nominee getting 51 votes, he or she will get 54 or 55.

How on earth is that a win for the Democrats?

    Who’s to say that the Republicans will actually wait for the midterms? they’ll probably just confirm her or him before October.

      They’re not going to wait. McConnell already said that. The Democrats are just demanding it. They can demand all they like; they’re impotent to stop it. I’m just pointing out that their demand is deeply stupid and pointless. You know, just like the Democrats.

        Good I’m glad to see the Republicans finally grew a pair of balls and are starting to stand up to the Democrats it’s about time

    Ruth will probably wake up sometime in September & wonder if Justice Kennedy has been working out.
