What they want is someon ...[text shortened]... r thinks that the Constitution is an allegory kinda like how some view the stories in the Bible.
No, what we want is a SCOTUS who will not act on what he as already said in his court cases, that the president should be LITERALLY above the law and that is the EXACT reason T picked him out of all the other right wingers. T cares less about union rights, women's reproductive rights, medical issues, environmental issues. He picked K BECAUSE he thinks he will get a 'get out of jail card' from SCOTUS if K is selected.
The other anti abortion, killing Roe V Wade, killing union rights, environmental issues, medical issues, all that is to T just icing on the cake which will ensure his 30% base will be with him no matter what.
My fondest wish is after K gets confirmed, Democrats take over the house and get 68 or so seats in the senate.
THEN see what happens to that creep Kavanaugh. They will pass constitutional amendments overriding whatever K tries to change like R V Wade. and the rest, and with a 2/3 majority, it doesn't matter if T vetoes or not, their bill goes through and K will choke on it but be unable to change it since it would now be a constitutional amendment that say, Roe V Wade, for women's reproductive rights will be law and SCOTUS can sputter and spit all they want but they cannot go against the constitution.
But that will probably not happen since the rightwingnut republicans are afraid of Trump and cannot grow any balls to counter the craziness inherent in the mind of Trump and while Democrats may take both houses with a majority, it will not be a 2/3 majority so any such legislation will just be vetoed by our literally unhinged POTUS.
