Last night, while appearing on Don Lemon’s unwatched show, has-been TV anchor Dan Rather feigned concern for the future of the Republican Party.
Yes, he’s so very concerned.
You see, according to Dan Rather, if the Republicans confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the GOP will go extinct just like the dinosaurs.
And the super worried Don Lemon and Carl Bernstein agreed.
This confirmation will destroy the Republican party.
And heaven knows Dan, Don and Carl do not want that to happen.
They only have the Republican Party’s interests at heart when they urge Senate GOP members not to vote yes.
Who’s buying that?
Rush Limbaugh always says the Left will tell you whom or what they fear.
And they’re terrified that Kavanaugh’s confirmation will hurt the Democrats.
Dan Rather isn’t trying to do the GOP a favor.
Not at all.
As I said last week, if the Democrats or their handmaids in the news media are offering election advice to the Republicans, always do the opposite of what they advise.
Neither the Democrats nor Dan Rather would shed a tear if the Republican Party shot itself in the head this close to the Midterms.
And given that, any advice they offer or portends of doom they predict are about as reliable as the HuffPo’s 2016 election prediction that Hillary had a 98% chance of winning.
Here’s the real reason Dan Rather wants the Republicans to cave – well, two reasons.
First, after the disastrous nothing-burger story from the New Yorker and the entrance of creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, the news media realize they’ve pushed this smear campaign too far.
They’ve dug themselves into such a deep hole, the only hope they have is if the Republicans decide not to go forward with Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
They also know that the obscene “guilty until proven innocent” rhetoric from Senate Democrats is backfiring among the American people.
Both the media and the Democrats have been exposed for the corrupt, venal, irresponsible monsters that they are.
It’s too late for them to pull back. So their only hope is Republicans give up the fight and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
But if Mitch McConnell’s angry speech on the Senate floor is any indication, that’s not happening.
“Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man’s personal and professional life on the basis of decades-old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated. … This is what the so-called ‘Resistance’ has become. A smear campaign, pure and simple. Aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate.”
And that brings me to the second reason.
Dan Rather and the rest of the media/Democrat complex aren’t used to Republicans fighting back.
And because Republicans are fighting back, Americans are getting to see the Democrat Party for the vile and vicious smear-artists that they are.
The longer this drags out, the more hysterical and unhinged the so-called ResistanceLOL becomes.
And McConnell’s right. It isn’t just far-Left activists who are becoming ever-more unhinged. The Senate Democrats are as well.
I’ve said before that Americans aren’t comfortable around the crazy. And we sure as hell don’t want to vote for them.
But the Democrats, as always, are pushing too hard and too far.
This smear campaign is backfiring on them.
It’s emboldening and coalescing Republican voters.
I hear this kind of thing from so many conservatives who are not Trump fans. I feel the same way. https://t.co/JzzVYwkfsc

And it’s also emboldening Senate Republicans.
Y'all, after talking to a key Senator tonight, I really do think we'll all need to send thank you notes and flowers to Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer after Kavanaugh is confirmed. One non-Judiciary Committee fence sitter is now a yes vote for confirmation.

They’ve lost control of this smear campaign and they know it.
Trust me. Dan Rather knows the party at risk for extinction here is the Democrats, not the Republicans.
And this faux concern is nothing but a badly made trap to ensnare the Republicans in order to save the feckless and exposed Democrats.
But at this point, I think that’s shutting the barn door long after the horse escapes.
