Default Sen. Schumer and Amy Coney Barrett

I do not imagine that Sen. Schumer realistically believes that the Democrats (as unhinged as they are) can stop Amy Coney Barrett, from replacing the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Rather, I believe, he is just appealing to independents--and trying to fire up the Democratic base, also--in order to help the Democrats re-take the Senate soon, and attenuate their House losses.

I think you are spot on.
