      I'm pretty sure that my party has never nominated anyone to the SCOTUS, friend. You really should know what you are talking about before committing it to print.

      That aside, you are referring to Merrick Garland, I take it, but the Republicans in that instance did not savage Judge Garland, say he was unqualified, or anything of the sort.

      No, they just dug in and refused to confirm him

      But there is nothing comparable there. The Republicans did not find fault with Garland. They simply refused to change the rules that the Senate had been working under and which had been established by the Democrats when they had the majority--and without consulting the Republicans. The Dems were merely victims of their own deviousness.

      I would be interested to know how that is supposed to make sense. It looks like the GOP will win out with two seats on the Supreme Court and the Democrats will gain none. That's thanks in part to the changes made in Senate procedures when they, the Dems, were in charge.

      Problem is that not all Republicans will vote to confirm as of now and elections are coming up in November and I seriously doubt that they will hold the senate

      You are certainly out of step with all the political experts--on both of those guesses. We will just have to remember this exchange when we see what has happened in November.
