    The Senate will hold a confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court this evening. We expect she’ll be confirmed.

    Watch deliberations live:

    Justice Clarence Thomas is expected to conduct the ceremony swearing in Barrett at 9 PM ET tonight (we’ll have a post on that, too).

    CONFIRMED

    Great jobs all around — Graham, McConnell, and fifty other GOP Senators.

    RBG’s death and this nomination just plain took the wind out of the Democrats’ sails, didn’t it?

    Even their threats of post-election rioting have begun to sound hollow.

    Dems will try to pack the court now. Republicans should pass an amendment fixing the court size.

    They could do it easily enough – just propose the amendment and propose packing at the same time.

    Dems will be forced to support the amendment.

    Of course the surrender monkeys in the caucus would find a way to make sure it didn’t happen.

      An amendment requires 2/3 of each house, and then 3/4 of the state legislatures. The Republicans don’t have 2/3 of the senate, let alone the house. If they propose both the amendment and the packing, the Dems will simply vote against both. Then when/if they take the senate they pass the packing.

        2/3 of the states may call for a constitutional convention and the proposed amendments are passed with 3/4 of the states approval. Does not require approval by the legislature.

        Has never happened this way,

        yet.

    Did Collins remain irrelevant? Here’s to Maine getting rid of a petulant servant of socialism.
