Although confirmation hearings for SCOTUS nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh won’t start until September 4, major MSM entities, such as the New York Times and The Washington Post, are reporting that it’s a lost cause for the left. According to the left media, shortcomings in resisting Trump’s nominee include a lack of grassroots coordination, lack of a clear target, and any blemish on Kavanaugh’s record to try and sink an increasingly likely successful confirmation. The “resist” efforts also appear foiled by the possibility of opposition from moderate GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. In short, Justice Kavanaugh was a done deal even before his nomination was announced.

The New York Times and The Washington Post both featured pieces this weekend chronicling the air of inevitability around Kavanaugh, made worse by pervasive lethargy and inertia in Democratic ranks.
