K-Lo, we can only hope the GOP is paying attention. I disagree with the Democrats, but I have long admired their appreciation of how central the courts are to their program. It has been much underappreciated on our side. You say their all-out fight is “not going to go over” with the American people, and I think that’s true. But I think they don’t have to “win” in a democratic sense to win in a bottom line sense. If they prevail in the filibuster fight, they keep originalists off the courts and incrementally accomplish their agenda. That’s far more important to them than, say, Iran’s nukes. They can lose some seats over this struggle and still win big-time if they block a lot of judges. It’s critical to understand how important this is to them, and to respect that instead of continually being nonplussed by it.
