(UPDATED) Justice Coathanger

From our pals at electoral-vote:

As expected, the vote was along partisan lines, with only Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) crossing the aisle. That leaves us with a final tally of 52 to 48. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who apparently couldn’t resist a little gloating, took a few potshots at the Democrats before the vote, asserting that they don’t believe in “legitimate defeat,” and that they only want “activist judges” on the Court. Very classy stuff; no wonder he gets along so well with Donald Trump.

They have a pretty good post up at the link which lays out possible scenarios for restoring some semblance of balance to the SCOTUS.

Maybe more later, I’m still processing.

UPDATE 1: What she said –

UPDATE 2: Well, since it was a “legitimate defeat” Ampy be-chinned #MoscowMitch doesn’t have to worry about giving away the game any more:

UPDATE 3:

    If a religious zealot with barely any experience on the bench being forced through by a highly partisan conservative lot isn’t the very definition of Activist Judges, I don’t know what is.

    Bah. This was so predictable that saying the Sun will rise in the east is a wild guess by comparison. We need to be thinking about how the Democrats should respond when they get power — and which of our senators and congresspeople (and maybe Biden himself) will need to get a few pallets of forceful letters from their constituents to chivvy them into action.

    If Amy had any integrity she wouldn’t have accepted the nomination under the presence circumstances. And so she’s now a Supreme. Did the Covidiot get the first dance with her?
