Even if BK is confirmed, it's not all doom.

For all the talk about Kennedy being a moderate swing vote, i think he was a reliable right wing vote. While he voted with the left a few times, he voted with the right the majority. This is not a huge swing to the right.

Now, Clarence Thomas is 70. It’s possible he’ll be replaced by the next president. We must win in 2020. Samuel Alito is not far behind at age 68. There’s no guarantee he lasts much longer either.

RBG is an outlier with great genes. We must either win the Senate in 40’days and the WH in 2020, or hope she survives until 2021 and we win in 2020. Either way 2020 is our LAST CHANCE TO have any hope to shift the court.

6. Do you think Kavanaugh would vote Kennedy's way on Obergefell?

 

My one hope is that Justice Roberts becomes more moderate, knowing this guy and his obvious partisanship will taint his court's legacy on some of the more egregious cases this court is going to get for the next few years.

3. K&R, It also looks like there's no SOL in MD on the type of assault KNaw committed against Ford

Hopefully they make these complaints in MD during a dem president

7. I agree, but the doom will come if we don't slaughter them in 6 weeks in the midterms

If we don't annihilate them this November, it is over. As we can all see, the repubs are completely out of control and pretty much lawless thugs.

8. We can't sit around and pray for them to trip and fall

and MAYBE they'll croak

GOTV, take back the White House and Congress, and expand the court.
