Hillary lost and Harry Reid is gone.

Our side has Yertle the Turtle for a leader, no chance that he will go nuclear.
He wants comity with his friends.

No reason not to go with a majority of 51 or even 50 plus the VP you know the Democrats will invoke it the minute if and when they retake the majority.

When asked if `nuclear’ was an option, Twitch was quoted the other day as saying, “The nominee will be confirmed.”

The problem with Trump’s moxy is, when placed next to him McConnell seems even more Yertle-ish. Why can’t he say something like, “We’re going to grease the treads of our tanks with their living guts.”
heh makes KEK happy
