This is a great clip, sent out by the GOP this afternoon. Andrea Mitchell herself admitting on NBC’s broadcast news that Barrett is superbly qualified with a terrific life story that will make it incredibly hard for Democrats to just wave the NO wand.
This is the reason, you see, that they are attacking the process. They knew before this started that if Barrett came into that room they’d be in a TOUGH spot. And now they are. And they know it. And NBC knows it.
Tomorrow the Senators begin their questioning of Barrett. They will try to make her an “extremist”, as she was called to her face today by Dick Blumenthal.
How’s that gonna work out? We’ll see.
