I just wrote to Mitch

I know he'll probably never read it, but I tried to call his office (202) 224-2541 and they are "experiencing a high volume of calls" and "This mailbox cannot receive messages at this time" and then got disconnected.
So I emailed him instead. Again, I have no illusions , but it felt good to write it down and send it out to the universe.

Mitch, whatever else you may be, you are a pragmatist . If you try to push through a replacement for the late Justice Ginsburg in the weeks before the election, you will be the man who costs the Republican part the senate. I know you think that packing the court with some Federalist Society -stooge will motivate your base. Our base is bigger. Our base is more motivated. Our base will flip the senate, you will lose your speakership. And if the future leader decides to play by your rules, you will be the man who lost the Senate for the Republican Party for at least a generation. Be a pragmatist.

2. "Losing" the Senate is not such a big deal for Mitch.

The senate goes back and forth. Stuffing the Supreme Court is a victory that lasts decades. Losing the senate is like sacrificing a pawn to gain a castle.

It's an easy decision.

3. It won't last long. Because as soon as the Dems get in they are going to increase the size of

the Supreme Court and add more justices in our favor.

I think I'll write him and thank him for that.
