Nominating garland is the one thing that might get R voters to revolt. At least some who voted for Trump instead of Hillary did so as they didn’t want her picking SC justices.

Cocaine Mitch rolled the dice on garland and won. Time for Ds to accept that.

If you were a betting woman, Where would you place your money?


#1145

:rofl:


#1146

There is no denying that he won but to accept it was the right thing g is different. Nominating garland and having him shot down would take away very powerful democratic fundraising card


#1147

The republicans would have approved Garland. You know this.

I’m sure some people did vote for trump because of the SC. What is your point about that?


#1148

Here was McConnell’s response to this via Twitter…


#1149

At this point Kethledge. Some Rs like Ted Cruz are publicly opposing Kavanaugh and it sounds like Barrett is out of consideration.


#1150

Yeahbi mean it’s so bizarre to think McConnell took that huge gamble just to turn around and have him nominated now.

If D’s take the Senate and another vacancy opens next year then yeah, it’s probably garland. But that’s the only scenario I can see it happening.


#1151

Exactly. It would make no sense. Not too mention, as you pointed out, there would be plenty of the base that would be in an uproar over it.


#1152

Correct. I’m quite sure Trump won’t do it, and Cocaine Mitch would strongly object.


#1153

oh i know it will not happen, not worries about that my friend


#1154

Yep…it’ll be one of those two guys, and from what you’ve linked and I’ve been reading, likely Kethledge too.


#1155

Hopefully so. He sounds like a great choice. That is from the white male list. :joy:

#1157

He’d been off of there since 2015. As I recall, the MSNBC show didn’t do that well. I liked his radio show better.


#1158

Ah. Didn’t know that. Thanks brother!!


#1159

His wife had ovarian cancer ( I think it was) several years ago and he devoted much time to taking care of her. I wish her well, prayers and hugs for his family.


#1160

He hadn’t been on MSNBC in a couple of years. Most recently, he had a show on RT America.

RiP


#1161

Oh. As in Russian Times?


#1163

What’s this admin’s fascination with Russia and related?
