    With a Democratic president and a Democratic Senate, we still cannot get our judicial picks on the bench. This is the kind of thing that makes me very bitter when people say judicial appointments are the reason I must for the Democrat, no matter how neoliberal they are, because we MUST control who gets appointed to the bench.

    Except even when we control the Senate, the Republicans get 4 out of 6 of their judges.

      that the Democrats want.

      I'm sure that most Dems will vote against this guy, but just enough will vote in favor that he'll get confirmed. And then the party shills here will say "But over 80% of Democrats voted against him! That proves Democrats are better!" and hope people forget that a Democratic president nominated him in the first place.

      It's disgusting.
