    If Ginsberg kicks the bucket before the election, certainly the Senate will delay any confirmation proceedings like they did when Garland was nominated early in 2016....Right? LOL.

    That was a Republican majority Senate holding up a Democratic president's nomination... this would be a Republican Senate acting on a Republican president's nomination.

    I still don't think they could pull it off. They're nothing if not incompetent after all.

    I'm confused, you don't think they could pull what off, delaying confirming the nomination until after the election? They DID pull it off with Obama's nominee in 2016... they won't try it with Trump's nominee. Maybe if it was a Democratic Senate. For a Republican Senate to sabotage a nominee from their own party would go way beyond incompetence...

    incompetence? How about intellectual honesty?
    The excuse for holding up the Garland nomination was that such a big decision should not be made in an election year. That argument doesn’t change based on the party of the current president. At least it shouldn’t, unless they were just pretending to be acting on principle to cover for partisan politics.

    If they proceed with a Trump SC nomination this close to the election after Garland, they expose the lie. Maybe they don’t care though.

    You have to be kidding. Logic and consistency ain't strong suits for Party members.

    (in the vein of intellectual honesty I shall henceforth refer to Democrat and Republican alike as simply Party members)

    And you know damn well they weren't acting on principle.

    I don't think they were even pretending to be acting on principle. That may have been the excuse for delaying, but the REASON for delaying was they didn't want to confirm Obama's nomination, so they put it off until after the election hoping Trump would win. And it worked, because the Republicans had the majority in the Senate.

    They still have the majority, and a Republican president. So why would they delay until after the election? HOPING a Republican would win?

    They already have that, so they wouldn't. If Trump has the opportunity to make a nomination, they will make SURE he/she is confirmed before the election.

    and prove they serve nothing but “The Party” as TK very astutely pointed out.

    Party and Trump Uber Alles...just like the Dems.

    Yes, exactly.

    But the suggestion was the the Republican senate would do the same thing to a Republican president that the Republican senate did to a Democratic president.

    They won't. That was my point.
