5. I'm glad it happened in this way--so cynically and in-your-face and smugly

If it had any veneer of legitimacy (yes, it was legal obviously, but it was illegitimate after what McConnell did to Merrick Garland), that would be one thing. We'd have to just put up with it.

But this absolutely smacks of "whaddaya gonna do about it"? Well, you'll find out, Mitch. This absolutely provides a reason for the Supreme Court to go from nine to eleven. Only six of the nine justices on the court were nominated by presidents who had won the popular vote in their most recent election. That's a problem.

Also, this will motivate young voters and people worried about losing their coverage for pre-existing conditions. I don't know why the GOP didn't wait for nine days to do this, because they certainly could have and gotten the same result, but if this were going to happen I'm glad it's happening now. It's just one more disgusting reason to get out there and vote.
