I’ve been posting like a madman about this Supreme Court nomination. Perhaps as a lawyer, it’s just something I’m geeky for. Anyway, Democrats should change the narrative here to something like this:
We won the nomination battle months ago when we stopped Frist from ramming all of Bush’s nominations through. We forced Bush to nominate a stealth candidate, someone without a strong anti-Roe record.
Spending political capital fighting this nomination is nonsense. It won’t work. Let the man through. All of the arguments contra are lame. He’s white and male. So? He’s only been a judge for a while. So? There’s no such requirement.
Save the real fight for when we get a nasty rightwinger.
