I hate to keep adding to the "Comey firing" flap of the past few days. Your story from the recent Register contained the concerning statement of Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) suggesting 45 nominate the snubbed Merrick Garland, Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court, ignored by Mitch McConnell for 10 months.
Hello? Even if 45 consider it, that nomination should be rejected by Democrats because it will remove a Democratic-leaning judge from the bench, and in will come a Republican conservative judge to the already-burgeoning roster of Republican federal judges.
The irony is palpable: Can you imagine the fight in Congress, Republicans supporting Garland, and (hopefully) the Democrats arguing against him? Love it.
