America is facing a crisis of political legitimacy

Just when you thought American hyper-partisanship and civic rancor couldn’t get any more intense, the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has plunged the country into an even more intense cycle of anger and recrimination on both sides of the partisan divide.

Will Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) bring to a vote on the Senate floor President Trump’s soon-to-be-announced conservative nominee to succeed the liberal Ginsburg, even though it violates the principle he enunciated in order to justify blocking President Obama’s nominee to succeed conservative Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016? Of course he will.
