Understatement. 

Every Senate seat up for reelection will be under intense scrutiny this election.   for MN Smith VS Lewis will be interesting.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t when it comes to filling the seat before inauguration. Piss your base off for not pushing a nominee through or piss off some moderates that want to wait to see who is elected. We all knew she hoped she would last until the next president took office., but now the opportunity has come where she could be replaced before the term is up. Sounds like Collins, Murkowski, and Romney are all signaling no votes before the next Congress. Seriously how the hell did we not banish Mitt from the party?!?!?

Any member with an ounce of integrity would not vote. McConnell set the precedent. Trying to fill the seat now that throws all of the "law and order" arguments out the door and would be the height of hypocrisy.

Covid is out the window.  Trump on the court.  Senators hide.  Both Dem and Rep.  Interesting times

This.

This is the #1 takeaway. 

100% of the focus will now go to the fight for the nomination and vote.

RGB in death has done a great service to the country, she will have in fact cured the plannedemic.

Dear Jesus.....and I mean....Dear Jesus.

May as well kick a hornets nest.

I'm done saying what next.....

2020 is full of what's next, still 3 months?

Trump and McConnell will start an additional rip into American politics with this one, could cost some incumbants at the polls in November.

More protests?

One thing we do know is Biden's list for a SCJ nominee can not be long. How many gay black females are out there to potentially meet the qualifications to get voted through? Under the current political,  racial and social climate what option does  he have left especially when pressured  from the AOC types.

Just went to a local grocery store. Masks not required. Two individuals walking in in front of me easily in their  late 70s......no masks. Table of 7 guys in little food area sitting around a table talking and drinking coffee. No masks. Not 6 feet apart. Definitely no goggles. Wish Redneksioux or Heydouch1 were there to shame them and tell them they are killing themselves.

Nah. But I’d shame any medical professional that supports eliminating pre-existing condition protections, any day.

When you leave your basement go ahead and try to find one.

Partially agree.....but the key difference in this case is that Scalia's death was truly a surprise.  RBG has been essentially clinging on by a thread for a year solely to try and avoid giving Trump another pick.  The reality is that she should have stepped down awhile back.

It is scary.  The Supreme Court is still the last bastion of common sense in this country.  Despite leanings of some members there aren't any crazy ones on the bench (even gulp.....the Trump ones).  All you have to do is listen to Biden try and speak at a town hall for more than a minute and you know he's not gonna be the one making that list.

Scalia died 10 months before the 2016 elections.  You think maybe the surprise had waned by then?

I would respectfully disagree, as a conservative libertarian, the two justices that Obama appointed are leftwing activist judges. JMHO. To me they've been highly disappointing.

Fair enough.  Does the left have it in them to take their foot off of the tired old masks for everyone and blacks are the only minority that matter narrative long enough to focus on the appointment that is coming?  Seems like Trump has the perfect cover to pick a 3rd justice.

Lots of people will hold their nose and vote based on their feelings about abortion. My state is solid blue so I'm voting 3rd party, but now it's anybody's guess who will win. My opinion is it helps Biden more since there are so many far left folks that weren't going to vote for him out of loyalty to Sanders, and this happened with enough time for them to do so now.

It's a no-brainer for Trump whether there's a confirmation vote or not......nominate a black female and watch the liberal hypocrisy spin start.

Yep, actually, it won't matter who President Trump nominates, the left is going to come unglued.

Also with Redfield/CDC stating masks will be as or more efficacious than a potential vaccine Burgum needs to call a press conference today, enact a statewide mask mandate and also mandate schools, K-12 and universities. open face to face 5 days a week all classes. All businesses back to normal requiring masks to enter. All indoor activities require mask wearing.

This goes to the stupid response hall of fame.

The principal at the school my boys attend told my wife he is certain it will go code red and distance learning for a while.
