Hoping for an asteroid

Susan Simpson from The View from LL2 sums it up:

The GOP has always had the votes to do whatever they wanted. But the veil has been lifted now. There is nothing they won’t do to gain and maintain power. There is plenty of damage they can inflict in a month before the election with Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. The misogyny was only the most obvious problem. There’s still voting rights, healthcare and Trump’s special investigation problem. Collins and Flake do this kind of thing all the time. I hope Flake doesnt have political ambitions after this. As for Collins, she may think her contituents will forget. I’m betting they won’t.
