Will House Democrats "Kavanaugh" themselves?

Yes­ter­day I wrote this about the Democ­rats and the house:

lot of cra­zies man­aged to win in deep blue states mean­ing that the left will be dying to go full pussy hat while Pelosi tries to make sure her cau­cus doesn’t have a Kavanaugh moment that so dis­gusts vot­ers that those 30 dis­tricts she flipped go the way of the Senate

It didn’t take much time to for the Democ­rats to start along that path:

Judi­ciary Com­mit­tee rank­ing mem­ber Rep. Jer­rold Nadler, D-N.Y., revealed plans for House Democ­rats to inves­ti­gate and impeach Jus­tice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged per­jury and inves­ti­gate and impeach Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump for alleged trea­so­nous col­lu­sion with Russia.

In post-​election chats with var­i­ous callers while rid­ing the Acela train from New York to Wash­ing­ton, Nadler gave advice to a newly elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive and dis­cussed poten­tial 2020 Demo­c­ra­tic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nees with another. He also lamented iden­tity pol­i­tics and the thriv­ing econ­omy and wor­ried about Democ­rats los­ing working-​class vot­ers while gain­ing elite for­mer Repub­li­cans and sub­ur­ban women.

One of the advan­tages Democ­rats had in their house races is there was no taint of the attempt to rail­road Judge (Now Jus­tice) Kavanaugh which proved fatal to many in the sen­ate, if Nadler fol­lows through, (now that this is out pub­licly they’ll be plenty of angry activists, crazy left­ists newly elected and democ­rats in safe seats who want to pro­tect their left flank from a Bernie Bro Crazy pri­mary who will demand he play along) those folks in swing dis­tricts that the democ­rats won this time around like va 07 or IA-​01 or fl-​27, and pa4-​8 will have a nasty deci­sion to make.

Now Nancy Pelosi will do her best to pro­tect as many of those folks from such a vote but there are plenty of NYC Cortez wannabees who will demand their the fresh­men in mn-​03, va-​10, and Nj-​11 come out pub­licly for impeach­ing Kavanaugh and Trump along with it.

If they don’t go along with the left’s mob they might find that there is a Bernie Bro wait­ing to pri­mary them in ca-​25 and Co-​6 and Ga-​06 and if they DO go along then the gen­eral elec­tion votes in KS-​3, SC-​01 and NY-​22 who were will­ing to vote repub­li­can the last time might decide they’d rather have dis­tricts like OK-​03, IA-​03 and wa-​08 back in the hands of the GOP.

If Pelosi had a larger major­ity then she could pro­tect ca-​48, Il-​14 and tx-​07 with­out much worry, but with a slen­der major­ity it will be a tough deci­sion to decide to give cover to ut-​4, Ny-​14 or Mi-​08 or Az-​02 CA-​49 or Il-​06.

Paul Ryan dis­cov­ered that keep­ing all sides of a major­ity was like herd­ing cats. Pelosi is far more skilled at this game and she’ll need every bit of that skill to save these seats par­tic­u­larly with POTUS trolling the house in gen­eral and her in particular.

It might be a lot of fun to watch it happen

Yesterday I wrote this about the Democrats and the house:

lot of crazies managed to win in deep blue states meaning that the left will be dying to go full pussy hat while Pelosi tries to make sure her caucus doesn’t have a Kavanaugh moment that so disgusts voters that those 30 districts she flipped go the way of the Senate

It didn’t take much time to for the Democrats to start along that path:

Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., revealed plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury and investigate and impeach President Donald Trump for alleged treasonous collusion with Russia.

In post-election chats with various callers while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, Nadler gave advice to a newly elected representative and discussed potential 2020 Democratic presidential nominees with another. He also lamented identity politics and the thriving economy and worried about Democrats losing working-class voters while gaining elite former Republicans and suburban women.

One of the advantages Democrats had in their house races is there was no taint of the attempt to railroad Judge (Now Justice) Kavanaugh which proved fatal to many in the senate, if Nadler follows through, (now that this is out publicly they’ll be plenty of angry activists, crazy leftists newly elected and democrats in safe seats who want to protect their left flank from a Bernie Bro Crazy primary who will demand he play along) those folks in swing districts that the democrats won this time around like va 07 or IA-01 or fl-27, and pa4-8 will have a nasty decision to make.

Now Nancy Pelosi will do her best to protect as many of those folks from such a vote but there are plenty of NYC Cortez wannabees who will demand their the freshmen in mn-03, va-10, and Nj-11 come out publicly for impeaching Kavanaugh and Trump along with it.

If they don’t go along with the left’s mob they might find that there is a Bernie Bro waiting to primary them in ca-25 and Co-6 and Ga-06 and if they DO go along then the general election votes in KS-3, SC-01 and NY-22 who were willing to vote republican the last time might decide they’d rather have districts like OK-03, IA-03 and wa-08 back in the hands of the GOP.

If Pelosi had a larger majority then she could protect ca-48, Il-14 and tx-07 without much worry, but with a slender majority it will be a tough decision to decide to give cover to ut-4, Ny-14 or Mi-08 or Az-02 CA-49 or Il-06.

Paul Ryan discovered that keeping all sides of a majority was like herding cats.  Pelosi is far more skilled at this game and she’ll need every bit of that skill to save these seats particularly with POTUS trolling the house in general and her in particular.
