Not at all. If he would have lost, his nomination would
have died in committee.

libs

The usual suspects fuckheads... I suppose they'll be willing to let us be three Justices short, if it came to it, to wait until a dem got the presidency again.

Man, Biden has swung much further to left in the past 6 years or so. He used to be a bit more centrist. Kennedy, Feinstein, Shumer....no surprises there.

When is the senate vote to take place

Doesn't the commitee vote go through on a simple majority? If all the Republicans vote yes, then the Democraps can fuck off. The only way these shitbirds can stall a general vote is to fillabuster.

There are no centerist Democraps anymore. The only way they can appeal to their base and raise money is to bea complete Commie.

Judicial nominations are not like bills. They cannot be killed by a committee vote. The Judiciary committee only makes a recommendation to the entire Senate.

Robert Bork's nomination was rejected by the Judiciary on the 9-5 vote, yet he still got a vote by the entire Senate.
