GOP claims about Barrett insult our intelligence

Barring the sudden emergence of a collective conscience, Senate Republicans will confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday. They have told the public -- and reiterated with a 12-0 vote of her nomination out of the Senate Judiciary Committee -- that this is a perfectly legitimate path forward, and that Barrett is a highly qualified judge who will follow the law. What they have not mentioned is her extreme ideology.

My son Rob is 23 years old. He follows politics, enjoys sips of whiskey, and loves baseball. He also has a rare form of dystonia, a feeding tube, and a tracheostomy, among other pre-existing medical conditions. He uses a speech-generating computerized device to communicate with us.

But far from a major Democratic win, the decision could spell bad news for the future of voting rights protections. The implications of this decision, with Judge Amy Coney Barrett waiting in the wings to cast the tiebreaking vote in a similar case if -- as expected -- the Senate confirms her nomination to be a justice, are enormous.

Analysis: Amy Coney Barrett's answers were murky but her conservative philosophy is clear

If Judge Amy Coney Barrett rules in the vein she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, Americans' personal privacy rights would be pushed back more than a half century. She would similarly diminish voting rights rooted in the 1960s. And she would, based on her scrutiny for regulators and apparent skepticism for the science of climate change, erect a tall hurdle for regulation of the environment.
