Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court this morning. Republicans are rejoicing, but it is a hollow victory. In order to accomplish this, Mitch McConnell had to gut Senate rules. The process was so politicized that it mars the Court, which is supposed to be “above” partisan politics. By ramming through a hyper- right judge, who is much disliked by the Left, Republicans have proven that they are willing to create a political Court.
Also, in all of McConnell’s arguments against Democrats, he rarely, if ever, mentioned Merrick Garland, the centrist jurist who would have represented the LAW and not a segment of society.
Get MAD and vote blue.
