The really frustrating part is we almost made it

1. It's worse than that. Breyer and RBG are both in the demographic for which this virus is very deadly

and if trump appoints even 1 more SCOTUS justice there will be no recovering from corporate-controlled right wing authoritarianism in our lifetimes.

3. I will hope that she and the rest of the court will now self-isolate at least until next January.

Failing that, once we control the presidency and the senate, it will be time to increase the number of SC judges. And Biden may indeed have sufficient political capital to pull that off.
