We now present a tremendous example of New York Times/Leftworld fantasy.
Times columnist Paul Krugman believes that today‚Äôs guilty verdict of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen‚Äôs plea deal will make the Supreme Court ‚Äúfundamentally illegitimate‚ÄĚ if nominee¬†Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed.
Yes. Kavanaugh may yet be confirmed, but this will make the SC fundamentally illegitimate. https://t.co/gLLad36KrD

What does that even mean?
This is not a serious thought. It is an expression of angst. https://t.co/5Mp2rER0cS

"**Fundamentally illegitimate" ‚ÄĒ **To the Resistance, but otherwise same influence as any other SCOTUS in history. https://t.co/aRd2Xkawwv

This after Chris Hayes made it clear that the Left‚Äôs goal is to use these developments in an effort to prevent Kavanaugh from being confirmed.
Wasting ZERO time, Chris Hayes makes the Manafort and Cohen news about what the Left REALLY wants to stop https://t.co/VYoSs2XyBa

It has always been about the court(s) for the Left. Don‚Äôt underestimate their desperation to try to keep judicial power leaning their way.
