McConnell says Republicans would fill 2020 Supreme Court vacancy

Jordain Carney, The Hill

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Republicans would fill a Supreme Court vacancy even if it occurs during the 2020 presidential election. The Senate GOP leader has viewed confirming judicial nominees as his top priority and one of the party's best chances at having a long-term impact. With 53 seats, Republicans could confirm a nominee over the objections of Democrats. Democrats quickly blasted McConnell over his comments, with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) calling him a "hypocrite." McConnell indicated during an interview with Fox News that which party controls the Senate and the White House is a crucial factor.

What we should be concerned about in this case and so many others is the fact that this went on for so long, allowing someone like Joe Biden to excuse it in his own mind as acceptable. Here’s a newsflash I thought unnecessary for the 21st century: It’s not what the perpetrator is thinking, it’s what he’s doing and what the women being targeted are experiencing.

Calling Harris "shrill" has nothing to do with her sex and everything to do with her behavior and politics.  The Kavanaugh hearings revealed who she is -- a vindictive, hypocritical opportunist and past master of the politics of personal destruction. This is a woman who, despite her having been district attorney of San Francisco, would have indeed sunk Judge Kavanaugh "by any means necessary" without the slightest need for evidence or the rule of law.  Even more, she did her best to destroy him for unproven allegations while his daughters were sitting there --how feminist!
