For those of you who have your eyeballs glued to things other than Twitter, vulnerable Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) left a political suicide note today by stating that she’ll be opposing Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. See below:
Voting for Kavanaugh was probably Heitkamp’s only shot at shoring up her right flank in deep-red North Dakota. She’s been getting crushed in the polls lately. RCP has her down 8.7% and a particularly damning Fox News poll came out this week putting her 12 points behind her GOP challenger, Rep. Kevin Cramer.
I’m basically interpreting this as a Democratic Senator who has decided that it’s better to die with honor than live in shame. Naturally, I’ll be watching Aliens tonight and relishing in Private Vasquez’s heroic sacrifice, one of the greatest in American cinema. What remains to be seen is if Republican Senators Jeff Flake (AZ), Susan Collins (ME), or Lisa Murkowski join Heitkamp in clutching the grenade.
HOW CAN YOU BET THIS? I’LL SHOW YOU.
BOOM. Grab a few NOs. Easy money.
Thanks for six good years, Senator Heitkamp.
