You might think politics is way more dangerous than you thought. OK, ‘nuclear’ is not meant in a literal sense but here is what it means and why it’s important.
- Gorsuch is too conservative for the Democrats.
- He’s Trump’s nominee. Democrats are under a lot of pressure from their constituents back home not to give an inch on whatever Trump wants.
- The shitty way the Republican controlled Senate treated Obama’s own nominee to the court last year. Payback’s a bitch.
