    To play the political game like Republicans...cause they definitely whooped us on this one

    •  Get counsel to ask the questions.... (none)
      I've suggested and I've heard other people do the same.....the senators need to hire outside counsel to ask the questions in these things and keep their mouths shut.  They mostly just make asses out of themselves.
    •  Playing like republicans (none)
      means playing to win.  I'm not sure that a filibuster actually wins us anything tangible.  I would vote no on his nomination but I'm not swayed that filibuster is our best option.

      •  after they own the courts... (none)
        there will be no options, only conformity and compliance or punishment.

        Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night.
