Democrats are desperately trying to figure out how they could go about delaying the confirmation of President Trump’s upcoming Supreme Court nomination. Among those floating ideas is the Washington Post’s “conservative” writer Jennifer Rubin, who suggested this doozy on Bill Maher’s show last night:
.@JRubinBlogger had good idea on Bill Maher: Boycott LL Bean in Maine and Alaska cruise lines until Sens. Collins and Murkowski, both pro-choice, vote to delay SCOTUS until after the midterms.

Politics today: With Bill Maher, Michael Moore and WaPo 'Right Turn' blogger Jennifer Rubin debate how best to defeat Trump SCOTUS nominee. Moore wants protesters to surround the Capitol. Rubin wants anti-Trump boycotts targeting Maine and Alaska. https://t.co/i9Vh7KWFyP

And then some.
She's the author of "Right Turn" at the Washington Post, you see. https://t.co/aNfJrJr4jo

If Rubin’s WaPo’s most conservative writer we’re afraid to ask what their most liberal thinks.
Yes, it's a great idea to boycott totally unrelated private businesses and see if you can get some utterly uninvolved employees laid off so you can achieve your naked political ambition.
Journalism is great, isn't it? https://t.co/gM5fmR3kyq

Would it kill @WashingtonPoint to have a STAFF FULL TIME opinion writer who is conservative for balance?
(The Rubin, Will etc moderates or out of touch Republicans do not speak for us.) https://t.co/flEtLVPR0Z

Prediction: Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist will write a piece in praise of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez before November. https://t.co/WzeqbT4kun

It probably won’t be very long:
