I wrote this back in July. Of course we didn't know at the time how horrid Trump's SCOTUS pick would be, or how low the GOP would sink to push him thru. But - the argument here held up. This outcome was inevitable b/c of the GOP's lack of integrity. /1…
In fact (believe it or not), what has happened generally in this SCOTUS process (aside from the historically awful confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh) is following what I laid out as the "best case scenario". Yes - there were potentially worse (largely election-related) outcomes.
This final analysis is very significant this weekend depending the final vote. Joe Manchin may very well vote yes for Kavanaugh. But this gets down to my core argument: win the war. The Dems HAVE to win the Senate. A Manchin "Yes" vote is a strategic "margin vote". Please read:

You: We’ve finally hit bottom.
Me: Oh no we haven’t.

Trump & Putin stole the presidency. Mitch McConnell is about to complete the takeover of the judiciary. The coup is nearly complete.

If they win in Nov, it’s game over. Use your time wisely the next 32 days. /1
Be prepared for a full-scale psychological assault. Trump & team have no qualms about mind-f*cking the American public if it helps them reach their goals. The core assault will be stories, messaging & conspiracy theories that cause Dem & progressive infighting. Don’t fall for it.
There is one party attacking our intelligence agencies. There is one party attacking the free press. There is one party putting kids in internment camps. There is one party hell-bent on eliminating every woman’s right to choose.

The Mother. F*cking. Republicans. That’s who.

THREAD - Profiles In Cowardice: Republicans from coast to coast are refusing to debate their Democratic opponents in front of constituents. #DemsWannaDebate

A race-by-race rundown (incl. video/photos) of the most egregious cases of debate-dodging:
The bottom line message here: demand accountability and transparency in representation. And don't settle for anything less.

What follows is a series of quotes from Democrats who aren't having much luck coaxing their opponents into live debates. /2
Liz Watson wants to debate Trey Hollinsworth in #IN09. Where's @RepTrey? cc: @LizForIndiana

Trump was in North Dakota today. ND data, for Trump & @GOP:

316,000: North Dakotans who have pre-existing conditions currently protected by law that are jeopardized by the Trump Administration’s demand that the courts to strike down protections for pre-existing conditions.

30,100: North Dakotans that would have lost health coverage by 2026 under the GOP House-passed Trumpcare bill.

11,400: North Dakotans with Medicaid would have lost health coverage under Trumpcare.

4,151: North Dakota workers would have lost their jobs by 2022 under Trumpcare.
$3,140: More for premiums a family of four in North Dakota could pay for coverage due to GOP’s ACA sabotage.

$17,060: More for premiums North Dakotans could pay for coverage if they are pregnant under Trumpcare.

Never forget how far down the rabbit hole we are.

Kavanaugh should not be the deciding #SCOTUS vote. McConnell nuked precedent by kneecapping Merrick Garland & changed Senate rules to take away the judicial filibuster.

If the Republicans in Congress were doing the job our founders intended, the Intel Committees would be deep into ongoing, meaningful Russia & emoluments hearings. Info would have likely come out that made it impossible for the Senate to even entertain a Trump SCOTUS pick.
If the GOP didn’t suppress votes & gerrymander districts - the GOP wouldn’t even have the majority in the House in the first place. If they didn’t spread disinformation and race-bait, working class voters would know that voting for GOP policies would harm them - not help them.
