This is the only picture that matters right now. There’s a reason they’re fighting so hard for this nomination. What we are witnessing is the endgame of a strategy 40 years in the making. Karl Rove’s quest for a “permanent Republican majority” can’t happen in free and fair elections where every vote is equal, so a plan was put in place to 1) control voter turnout and counts and 2) take control of the judiciary to favor voting restrictions. That’s why it has to be Kavanaugh and no one else. He has been carefully groomed for this position probably since college. It’s been said before it bears repeating. Democrats play checkers. Republicans play chess.
