Here is what I do not understand.

They have a list of nominees. He can't be the only judge they've got who will rule like they want. Why doesn't Trump pull Kavanaugh or he recuse himself - not admitting anything, just to avoid tainting the court with speculation or until there is an investigative result. 

If they did, they could look reasonable. And then, well, he could nominate someone else, they could do their "thorough background check", and vote on him, all before the midterms (though really, they have till January). McConnell could easily call a special session, right? 

Why is "this man right now" their hill to die on? Can't they see what it looks like? It's like they just can't stand being opposed army all, even rightly, like they just can't admit to even a possible mistake. Or like they really think they're entitled to whatever they want.

Even if what they want repels much of the country.

It's not a good look.

I believe it’s because of the footballization of politics. And that man, in particular, doesn’t want to do anything he thinks looks like a loss.

Your suggestion makes perfect sense. While they're at it, can't they nominate a woman? Sexual assault and harassment allegations would be less likely, don't you think?
