I never in my wildest imaginings ever thought I would say/think this

Please do not die or resign Clarence Thomas (at least until February 2021)

2. Agreed 100%

I loathe Clarence Thomas and have for decades (more than Scalia, but less than Alito)
But getting that seat is pivotal.
Replacing Breyer and Ginsburg keeps the status quo
Getting Thomas' seat shifts the Court

5. Nothing new that I am aware of

I just keep my fingers crossed
What I'm concerned with is that il douche loses in November, Thomas calls it quits right after and McConnell crams a new justice through
Some uniquely qualified justice whose background is in watch repair and falconry

12. Naive thinking says McConnell will allow a Democrat to nominate anyone to the court ever again

while he runs the Senate.

13. So, you're okay with some early 40's Judicial hack

getting that seat?
Because that is what you will get.
With a Democratic president at the very least it will not get filled, at the most we get someone. Especially with a Democratic senate

11. Who is going to invoke it?

The confirmation of SCOTUS is 100% under the control of the Republicans, so if they want to confirm a new Justice they will. There is absolutely nothing that can be done about it.
