 Whoever is running the vote counting at the White House is really good. The Flake compromise is artful. The nomination is now on the floor of the Senate, and he and Coons, Flake's bi-partisan comrade, have agreed that the FBI will investigate only the 3 current allegations and no new ones and that the investigation will take only 1 week or less.

The President has announced that he will do whatever the Senate and the Judiciary Committee want to do, that the goal is to bring the country together. So, the FBI will prepare a report that will be kept in a secure reading room, like the FISA warrants, the Senators will pretend to study them, and McConnell has a free No Vote to offer to either Collins or Murkowski (or 2 if Manchin does a deal and follows the West Virginia Governor's example and goes over to the dark side).

Even yesterday the odds at Victoria University's New Zealand casino were that Kavanaugh would not get out of committee. Now, the probabilities have completely flipped. If the present news flurry keeps the odds at or below even money, bet the good Catholic boy and get ready for the Notre Dame professor to replace Margaret Hamilton.
