At a pro-abortion rally outside the Supreme Court today, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed that Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch “will pay the price” if they don’t bend to pro-aborts’ will.

That explanation may be good enough for the same media firefighters who would’ve called for, say, Mitch McConnell’s head on a pike had McConnell said the same about Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor. But why the hell should we be satisfied with it?
