To be clear, I wanted McConnell to refuse to hold hearings for Garland because I didn’t want Garland on the court. I want the hearings now because I do want Trump’s pick on the court. That’s the way the game is played, you dumb whiners. It’s not “hypocrisy,” it’s just politics.
And this is the right response. Stop trying to justify it on any other basis. We didn’t want Obama’s pick and Republicans had the power to prevent it, so we wanted that power to be used. There’s no shame in that. Stop being scared of playing the cards you’re holding.
