Democrats and their armies of far-left activists are prepared for a fierce battle to deny President Trump from filling Ruth Bader Ginsburg's vacant Supreme Court seat but are worried that one of their leaders isn't up to the fight.
There are rumblings that Senator Dianne Feinstein who is the top Dem on the Judiciary Committee where the appointee will be savagely smeared may be too old to put forth the effort needed to keep the seat open when they contest the election.
Feinstein who like Ginsburg is 87-years-old has been noticeably slowing and has lost a good deal of her savage cunning skills that were critical in the despicable campaign that was waged against Brett Kavanaugh.
In a bombshell report by Politico, concerns of "more than a dozen Democratic senators and aides" that Di Fi can't be relied on to do what is necessary to sink the nominee who is expected to be Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
As is standard operating procedure for stories in the mainstream media, the sources are anonymous.
As the Senate prepares for yet another brutal Supreme Court nomination fight, one particularly sensitive issue is creating apprehension among Democrats: what to do with 87-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee.
Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate, is widely respected by senators in both parties, but she has noticeably slowed in recent years. Interviews with more than a dozen Democratic senators and aides show widespread concern over whether the California Democrat is capable of leading the aggressive effort Democrats need against whoever President Donald Trump picks to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The Judiciary Committee is the critical battleground in the Supreme Court confirmation process. At stake, her own Democratic colleagues worry, is more than just whether the party can thwart Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in his rush to fill the seat. Some Democrats privately fear that Feinstein could mishandle the situation and hurt their chances of winning back the majority.
Feinstein sometimes gets confused by reporters’ questions, or will offer different answers to the same question depending on where or when she’s asked. Her appearance is frail. And Feinstein's genteel demeanor, which seems like it belongs to a bygone Senate era, can lead to trouble with an increasingly hard-line Democratic base uninterested in collegiality or bipartisan platitudes.
According to one unnamed Dem senator: ‘She can’t pull this off.’”
The irony is hilarious due to the Democrats insistence on keeping the upper ranks of their party filled with aging 1960s radicals like Pelosi, Feinstein, Cummings, Lewis, and RBG who are dropping faster than the classic rock stars whose music served as the soundtrack for that tumultuous era.
According to the report, Feinstein vehemently denied suggestions that she wasn't up to the task:
In a phone interview, Feinstein pushed back hard against suggestions she could no longer effectively serve as ranking member of the Judiciary panel or is incapable of handling the upcoming nomination fight.
“I’m really surprised and taken aback by this. Because I try to be very careful and I’m puzzled by it,” Feinstein told Politico. “My attendance is good, I do the homework, I try to ask hard questions. I stand up for what I believe in.”
With a babbling, half-mummfied Joe Biden as their presidential nominee and a declining flock of geriatrics led by Pelosi and Feinstein leading the charge against Trump's choice, it is probably fairly safe to say that this is the last gasp of the Haight-Ashbury hippies who got their revolution decades too late.
