Kavanaugh Confirmation Heads to Full Senate With Flake Calling for FBI Probe and Delay on Final Vote

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I really don't think there's much to be excited about here, unless Mark Judge suddenly develops a conscience. (He won't.) If Republicans were going to vote no, they would have done it based on yesterday's testimony. Like the theatrics we saw earlier today, the FBI investigation is merely to give the “maybes” cover for when they end up voting yes, which enough will.

As for the so-called blue wave that is coming, let's talk about what it really means. In all likelihood, we will be lucky to break even in the Senate, meaning still no power. And all control of the House will do is allow us to stanch the creation of more hideous policies, most of which have already been enacted. And even if we win the Senate, the damage to the Supreme Court is already done thanks to the stolen seat. This appointment (or an equally horrible replacement) is the beginning of GOP Phase 2: overturning Roe v. Wade and reducing marriage equality back to a state issue -- and so on -- and there is nothing we decent people can do to stop any of it.

Have a great weekend!
