It might surprise you to know that I said yesterday to a friend that the Dems were going to push a flaccid, by-rote rejection of whoever Bush nominates, provided he/she was anywhere right of say, Ted Kennedy.

I personally think Roberts is too far to the right, and I'll get behind any grassroots effort to dissuade my Senators from casting a confirmation vote for him, but the larger point is that the mainstream Dems are simply lost. I don't even think they know what they oppose, only who.

"None of this troubles the loop. Trump watches and emotes; he excretes and consumes. That a great and greatly conflicted experiment in self-government has come to this—a whole nation trying to talk a shitfaced trust-fund lout into a cab so that he won’t mow down everyone on the sidewalk, and then talking about what a fantastic job he did barfing in the ashtray—is one thing. It’s many things. But none of those things are complicated."
