McConnell Pursues Scorched-Earth Tactics on Ground That is Already Scorched

The violent summer of 2020 made clear how combustible this country is when significant numbers of Americans conclude that the system is not on the level, that official power is untethered to principle, that familiar pieties about neutral law and blind justice are fraudulent.

The fall of 2020 has now arrived with what promises to be an all-consuming debate in which important people are not even pausing to mouth those pieties.

Within about 90 minutes of the announcement of Ruth Bader Ginsburgís death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced his narrow Republican majority is ready for an immediate battle over filling her seat with a nominee of President Donald Trumpís choosing, a contest that promises to be exclusively about power, with no whisper of pretense that anything else matters.

The confirmation fight will take place in a country still recovering from a summer of continent-wide domestic protests and riots, in the closing days of a presidential election in which there are questions about whether the votes can be reliably counted or the official result will be accepted by the candidates.
