I don't want to take away from the RIP RGB post. Ruth Bader-Ginsburg was an astonishing woman who left her mark on the world. It will take an incredible person to fill her shoes.
“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” — Mitch McConnell, March 2016.
MARCH!! And it is already September.

Not only that, but early voting in Virginia started today. They’re going to argue that we need a 9 person court in case they need to rule on the election. We had an 8 person court in the 2016 election and for over 400 days while they held up the nomination of Garland.
There is one rather large difference between now and 2016. We knew we would have a new president, regardless of the outcome of the election. This time, we don’t know. We can hope, pray, burn sacrifices to all the gods that are holy, but the outcome of the election might not result in a new president. That’s the excuse all these blowhards will give.
