As the left begins to consume itself

All Communist/Socialist groups do this and nobody bothers to learn their history.  They always think that they are important - they will not be eaten like those other people over there.  From Legal Insurrection:

Blowtorch Sheldon Whitehouse fights Blowhard Dick Durbin for top Dem spot on Senate Judiciary Committee
Dianne Feinstein recently announced that she would not seek to remain the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee for the next congressional term starting in January 2021.

Feinstein came under a lot of fire from fellow Democrats for not savaging Amy Coney Barrett the way Democrats savaged Brett Kavanaugh. Feinstein was practically burned at the stake as a heretic for a modest embrace of Lindsey Graham at the end of the Barrett hearings.

Feinstein’s departure has set off a scramble to replace her on the Committee. If Democrats win both Georgia Senate Runoffs, that would mean Chairmanship of the powerful committee, including control over judicial nominations.

Dick Durban from Illinois is the most senior Democrat on the committee after Feinstein, so by seniority the slot should go to him. In the Senate, seniority counts for a lot. But Durbin is a blowhard. No one fears him.

A lot of liberals are not happy with Durbin's claim to slot, he’s viewed as not sufficiently progressive and not enough of a fighter. Durbin is a blowhard, but not a blowtorch, and Democrats want a blowtorch.

Heh - the really dumb guy gets the post because of senority. Some of the progs are pushing Senator Sheldon Whitehouse for the post - he is the next in line after Durban. Much more at the site - some fun reading.

Also, Feinstein did not step down voluntarily - she was pushed by Chuck the Schmuck.
