    They'll do it before the election to whip the MAGGATs into maximum frenzy.

    Shouldn’t he be worried more about keeping his job in another six weeks?

    Should we be very concerned that she actually took a stand? And can we count on her following through given that Graham and Moscow Mitch reversed their stands when it became incredibly convenient for them?

    She has no choice if she wants to have any hope of being re-elected.

    McConnell can afford to let her loose and for her to be all offended by what he’s about to do. That said, I truly think the GOP will sacrifice everything to get this done, if they need to. Mitch would hold Collins at gunpoint if he needed to. They’ll do this the morning of inauguration if they have to, no matter how stupid it looks.

    Decades of doing nothing has rendered the legislative branch utterly impotent. Reps and senators won’t vote on anything difficult so they can avoid primaries and stay in office and they’ve ceded those responsibilities to the courts and POTUS. And now we’re dealing with one of the many disasters from that trajectory. Getting a third young conservative on the court is worth almost anything to Republicans. They’ll gladly give up the majority if it means they get this seat.

    She will do nothing to stop the vote. She will vote. And she will vote confirm trump’s nominee regardless of when the vote is held and who is nominated
