Predicting the Democrats’ moves is about as easy as predicting a sunrise.
They aren’t exactly the most complex of thinkers.
The problem is they have such a limited arsenal at their disposal, they tend to go back to the same tactics over and over again.
And with regard to SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, I think the Senate Democrats are planning a full-court, Bork-like attack.
There’s just a couple problems that I see with this silly plan.
First, this isn’t 1987.
When Senate Democrats slandered and smeared judge Robert Bork there were three television networks plus CNN and C-SPAN.
The “world wide web” was in its infancy so new media and social media were non-existent. Americans’ sources of news were limited to party-line, Democrat-supportive newspapers and news channels.
In other words, the media deck was stacked in the Democrat Party’s favor.
But there is no media monopoly on news and information anymore, is there?
In today’s information age, I don’t even think Robert Bork could get borked.
But there’s another significant reason the planned borking of Brett Kavanaugh won’t happen the way they hope.
And it’s one of the Democrat Party’s own making.
During the 1987 confirmation hearing for Robert Bork, the level of hysteria, hyperbole and vitriolic nonsense launched against him was completely unique.
That’s no longer the case.
The Democrat Party and their far-Left non-profits have kept the hysteria level at Spinal Tap 11 since November 9, 2016.
They turn themselves inside out on a daily basis over every little thing this President does, says or tweets.
The screaming, the rioting, the violent protests in the streets have been virtually non-stop for twenty months.
It isn’t going to be a shock when Senate Democrats smear a Trump nominee, join in street protests to chant nonsensical Leftist slogans, or make gloom and doom predictions of impending death.
When they did that to Robert Bork it was so outside of the norm that Americans were stunned into paying attention.
But now, that behavior isn’t outside of the norm for Democrats at all.
Democrats behaving like lunatics howling helplessly at the sky while predicting Armageddon is the norm.
In fact, it’s become standard operating procedure since Trump was elected.
This is what I mean when I say that Democrats push too hard and too far.
Borking Brett Kavanaugh could’ve worked if the Democrats hadn’t already spent the entirety of Trump’s term thus far shrieking like wet cats and calling every single thing he does a “constitutional crisis.”
For crying out loud. How many times have these idiots predicted that we’re all going to die?
At this point Americans are so sick of the hyper-dramatic histrionics they’re pretty much tuning it out.
Like I said before, it’s become white noise — easily dismissed — not to mention enthusiastically mocked.
The so-called “mainstream” news media isn’t even close to being “mainstream” anymore – if it ever was.
In fact, the majority of Americans don’t trust the news media today.
So having the “mainstream” news media help promote the Democrat Party shrieking points against Brett Kavanaugh won’t be nearly as effective as it was in 1987 against Robert Bork.
And it certainly doesn’t help that the Democrats have Hollywood in their corner either.
Americans have a very low tolerance for pampered celebrities telling us how we should think or vote.
And when those celebrities decide to turn into psychotic Cassandras issuing portends of “dictatorship” over a SCOTUS nomination, they only make us detest them all the more.
In a nutshell, the Democrats have overplayed their hand…
And this time, any attempt to smear and slander Brett Kavanaugh the way they did Robert Bork is going to backfire on them in a big, BIG way.
