Democrats thinking ahead? Thinking Period? Republicans may be the party of crap ideas but the Democrats have always been the party of no ideas. they stumble around in the dark and do what their feelings tell them. This entire episode with the people crying over supreme court nominations during an election year despite it happening before is because the Democrats are the ones who changed the rule to make it so you only need a simple majority in the senate to confirm for a seat instead of 60 votes. These blockheads always somehow keep forgetting that there are times when the other party has control of one or both of the houses.
