“Why is it always our people? Why us? Bork, Thomas, Alito, and now Kavanaugh. Why us? Because it’s a noble cause in their eyes to destroy a conservative judicial candidate, and I hope it blows up in their face. I hope politically they pay a price for this … losing [the confirmation fight] is not enough, they need to pay a price at the ballot box.” — Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
He is right. Until the Democrats pay a price at the ballot box their incivility will only increase. When you are trying to train a dog not to make messes on the floor you need to rub their noses in the mess they made and say “No.” If you think what they did to Kavanaugh is acceptable, if you want to give political violence a pass, if you are good with virtue-signaling mobs destroying peoples lives stay home on November 6, or go ahead and vote Democrat. If you are tired of this behavior, vote them out of office.
Traditionally the out-of-power party makes big gains in the election after a close Presidential race.And as Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) keeps saying all the Democrats needed to get that kind of sweep was not act crazy. But they cannot manage even that low bar.
If the Republicans end up holding the House and making gains in the Senate, that should send a powerful message from the electorate to the Democrats. But for that to happen people have to turn out and vote, and vote against the Democrats.
I leave readers with this thought:
Remember, remember, the sixth of November,
The Kavanaugh smear and plot.
I know of no reason why the Kavanaugh smear
Should ever be forgot.
