If Biden Wins, He'll Roll Over for the Left in a Heartbeat
Drew Angerer/GettyIf Democrats sweep the elections next week, their party better brace for an inner civil war over both strategies and policies.

It's unclear which faction will prevail, but some large part of the Biden constituency will be disappointed because pleasing both suburban Lincoln Project voters and the Bernie Bros is nearly impossible. Instead of hashing their differences out now and establishing some sort of mandate, Joe Biden and his supporters have blurred the lines that might alienate either faction. That's great for campaigning, but not so much for governing.

So, Biden is winning by virtue of not being Donald Trump, a huge "accomplishment" that, as a friend of mine recently pointed out, will be achieved on Day One. What happens for the next four years? Here's where things get a bit fuzzy.

The Amy Coney Barrett Sham Senate Confirmation Is Done. Now, Her Supreme Court Horror Show Begins.
Erin Schaff-Pool/GettyWith Democrats powerless and Republicans shameless, the foregone conclusion of Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation as a Supreme Court justice is, at last, concluded.

Justice Barrett was confirmed 52-48 by the Senate, and tomorrow, she will be sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts, in person at the Supreme Court. Fittingly, given her shotgun-wedding of a confirmation, Justice Barrett may get straight to work deciding cases, including two high-profile challenges to election rules.

Before the travesty fades from memory, however, we thought it would be useful to put all of the terribleness of her confirmation into one convenient top-ten list, summarizing everything that was wrong with this process from its beginning—all of one month ago—to now. Shall we?

Amy Coney Barrett Confirmed by Partisan Vote She Could Not Lose
OLIVIER DOULIERYTo get to Monday's vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court, Senate Republicans had to plow through a historically narrow timeframe, a superspreader event that infected the president of the United States and several of their own, and an eleventh-hour COVID-19 risk to the vice president planning to preside over the vote himself.

Ultimately, none of it mattered. On Monday night, the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Barrett to the Supreme Court by a vote of 52 to 48, with only Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) crossing party lines by joining all Democrats to vote no.

It took just 30 days for Barrett to be confirmed, and no high court nominee has ever been approved—let alone received a vote—so close to a presidential election. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed to get the confirmation done before Nov. 3, and he did so with a week to spare. And he didn't need Vice President Mike Pence, who has the power to break ties in the Senate as president of the chamber. Pence ultimately skipped the vote, as Democrats publicly urged him not to come after his chief of staff tested positive for COVID-19.
