Democrats have a simple strategy to make the Supreme Court vacancy painful for the GOP

Twenty-one years later, Reedy sees an all-time high deficit, beyond questionable extensions and abuses of federal power, astounding private sector corruption, "and a president who insults everyone who calls him out on his lies as fake, weak, nasty dummies."

"That little red-and-blue pachyderm represents something different today than it did at the end of the Clinton years," she writes.
