Democrats Get Screwed Again by Mitch McConnell
It has been confirmed after a forty-five minute speech, that Senator Susan Collins will be voting for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, adding yet another conservative on the bench. And I hate to say it, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg isn’t getting any younger. The funny thing, since when is President Trump a conservative?
Regardless, Mitch McConnell has the votes he needs to appoint Judge Kavanaugh and it is a formality come tomorrow morning to appoint the most bi-partisan judge the Supreme Court has ever seen.
Now, were the Democrats looking to delay Kavanaugh’s vote till the midterms? Of course, there’s no denying that, and that is why some of you need a reminder. Don’t forget what got us here: the McConnell Rule.
The McConnell Rule is comparable to when as kids you are playing a game and make up the rules as you go along. As such, President Obama’s pick, Merrick Garland, never even got a chance at a Senate Confirmation Hearing because per McConnell’s rule that he made up out of nowhere, a President cannot appoint a Supreme Court Justice in an election year.
Well wait, what do we have going on now? Oh, that’s midterm elections and so that doesn’t count per McConnell.
So, while the Democrats lose again due to dirty tricks and then Republicans cry about being partisan, let me repeat myself when I say don’t forget who started this. The results? It’s going to get really dirty from here on out and with a President that condones such behavior, you are going to see the ugly side of politics like never before. Maybe even the Democrats continue to investigate the allegations of sexual assault to impeach Kavanaugh, but that is an incredibly risky move, but honestly, if the roles were reversed, I have no doubt that the Republicans would do it.
The frustrating part of all this: where was Susan Collins when Republicans were playing games with Merrick Garland? What about Chuck Grassley? Nowhere!
Hopefully, the country and especially women, remember and vote them all out in November.

The Senate just voted on whether to proceed with a confirmation vote for Judge Kavanaugh.
We are looking at three firsts when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee.
The FBI investigation is just step one. Step two: impeachment.
