And Then There Were Two

Another story about Kavanaugh sexually assaulting someone has been published.

There’s a strange calculation here:

The more K becomes tainted, the more the GOP will turn off voters, which increases the risk that they will lose the Senate, which increases the pressure to get K seated before they lose the chance to seat anyone, which makes them look even worse, which increases the chance they’ll lose the Senate. GOTO 10.

Their alternative is to not vote on him, risk their base staying home, but possibly lessen the retaliatory vote, and maybe retaining the Senate to give them another chance to seat someone else after the election.

I think they’ll keep the Senate.

But I hope they’re losing sleep trying to game this shit out.
