    Monday, Senate Majority Leader McConnell said the Senate would be voting on Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court this week.

    “The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close. Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is out of committee. We’re considering it here on the floor. And, Mr. President, we’ll be voting this week,” said McConnell.

    Well that settles it. I have complete confidence now.

    Didn’t he say there would be a vote last week, too? And the week before, and the week before?

    Well, maybe they really will vote someday. I won’t hold my breath but I can quietly hope.

    Is it just me, or does McConnell look a little gaunt?

    Is this a procedural part of a motion to end debate?

      no

      I think it was just a Senate meeting where this was simply announced

      likely Friday, FBI background checks will be sent to both parties where McConnell will call on an official vote

      Democrats will grandstand over the weekend

      vote happens Sunday or Monday

    The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close.

    I think any reasonable person would agree that, when dealing with Democrats, “the time” should have closed about 1805. It didn’t happen then. I’m not yugely optimistic that it will happen now, either. Maybe we’ll see next week. More likely we’ll see Lucy jerk the football again . . . and again . . . and again . . .
