A Democratic Party lacking the White House, majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate, and the Supreme Court imitated strength in practicing rudeness.
Unable to rely on an institutional or the democratic apparatus to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, they embraced a by-any-means-necessary strategy.
Democrats, already driven to vote this November given their distaste for the president, did not need added incentive. Rather than boost Democratic turnout, the Kavanaugh hearings instead inflamed Republican voters and alienated many independents.
The brat-fit Democrats threw because of their minority status does not block another conservative from the court and may very well prevent Democrats from regaining either house of Congress.
