Okay, I’ll admit this is a good bit of trolling, but I can’t help myself this morning.

You remember Merrick Garland? He’s the guy Obama nominated for the Scalia seat, but who never got a vote. That was like an injection of hot sauce into the veins of Democrats.

The liberal freakout over the recent confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was just a preview. If another vacancy opens up this summer, we’ll see the main attraction.

And just so you know, there is already talk of another vacancy.

Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, April 7, 2017, on a straight up or down vote.

That up or down vote will happen after Democrats filibustered the nomination by getting 45 Democrats to vote against closing debate.

Republicans then exercised what usually is referred to as the...

I’m not sure the Republican Party ever has been united. There always were factions at odds with each other and at each other’s throats.

It reminds me of the Tom Lehrer song National Brotherhood Week, paraphrasing:

The buzz overnight is that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch criticized President Trump for attacking the Judge who granted the TRO against the Immigration Executive Order, and also the 9th Circuit.

Both Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal and Republican Ben Sasse said the terms “disheartening” and “demoralizing” were used.
