I mostly agree. There's an argument that the Democrats shouldn't have removed cancelled the filibuster for non supreme Court seats a few years back. GOP was blocking almost 100% of Obama's picks for no other reason than to strangle the government, but still I think it would have made a better campaign issue. Hard to say. On the other hand, even if they didn't do that probably McConnell would have changed the rule to confirm Gorsuch anyway. McConnell is a next level piece of shit, possibly the most horrible person in government in a very crowded field. Whatever the case, impeaching Gorsuch would cause me great joy.

"We can't have a confirmation vote during an election year" is some expert level spin. Not that it hides the intent all that well. It was just so boldly false. McConnell, Kennedy, Ryan and a bunch of others seem way too cocky about the party's long term success or entirely don't care about their legacy. I singled out McConnell because he's made a series of decisions that have amped up the hostility. I also hate his face
