Tomorrow at roughly 5 ET, the nation will learn who Donald Trump will nominate to fill the opening on the Supreme Court. At roughly 5:01 ET, if history gives us any guide, every Democrat and liberal-progressive interest group will declare that person a threat to the Republic who must be stopped by any means necessary. That will create the kind of contentious confirmation hearing of the fever and pitch we saw in 2018 with Brett Kavanaugh, not to mention the confirmations of Neil Gorsuch, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, and so on.
I still haven't fully recovered from the Thomas hearings, so I don't think I'll be watching the presumptive Barrett hearings. Let me know how they go.
