Sometimes I wonder if the woman’s entire career is based on trolling liberals. If so, this is a pretty epic one. Of course, in the end she’ll probably vote to filibuster and then vote no on the nomination. But she’s gone rogue on judges before. I doubt she’d do that as it this time as it might finally bring about a primary challenge (though that’s sort of a lemons into lemonade thing from my perspective).

But you have to give it to DiFi: she’s managed to represent some very liberal jurisdictions despite a record and rhetoric that on a bad day would put her to the right of Evan Bayh. That’s some talent for spin right there.

    Time to primary the remaining centrist, above it all, I like getting stroked by the press for going against my party, self interested dems and replace them with candidates that care about something besides themselves. I hope the fire is still burning hot enough that someone primarys DF from the left in 2018.

      Feinstein has always been on the right wing of the Democratic Party, and since 1998 or so it’s become increasingly painfully obvious. But she’s not stupid and has never made a big enough mistake to end her career altogether. Voting for Gorsuch would do just that, so for that reason I don’t think that she’d do it. But she’ll say some pleasant nothings to grease the way before inevitably opposing him.

    And it’s not like there’s any concerns about losing the seat to a gop unless the dems do something suicidal, like running two dems against one gop.
