Democrats consider letting Gorsuch through →

Why would they do this? Are they managing to get some liberal coup? No, they want to preserve their ability to filibuster the next Supreme court justice. As if Gorsuch’s previous decision haven’t problematic and that he would likely live a long time. What is the big bad that the Democrats are saving themselves to fight? Are they afraid that Trump will nominate himself? If the Democrats do go along with this, the Republicans will just change the rules for the next nominee.

I guess at this point, we should expect this for the democrats, throwing away a perfect opportunity to do good and retaliate for a stolen nomination for the misguided idea that it will give them some imaginary power in the future.
