I really hope they don't. Would be far better to go back to near unanimous consent with a few standard bearers raising the concerns. Would be better for civility and our democracy.

Railroad…seriously? You seemed to forgotten how the left tried to railroad the Kavenaugh nomination…false allegations in which every friend of hers refused to corroborate. A political hit job based on Democrats lies.

Dems control the WH and both houses of Congress…the only obstruction we’ve seen so far in the failed Biden Presidency has been from his own party.

Glad Beyer is retiring.

I'm sure it will be a silky smooth process.

I think this could happen. Since there is no stopping confirmation, McConnel won't waste the opportunity to show the contrast between the GOP and the Dems in confirmation hearings. And before some of you scream about Garland - there were no hearings so no opportunities for GOP Senators to act like total asses like the Dems did with Kavanaugh and Barret.

LOL, so becuase there were no hearings you don't think the GOP didn't act like assholes about Garland, is that right? JHC!

Re: Supreme Court vacancy

Its cool ... the nominee will swear under oath she respects the interpretations of prior SC cases in which Kyle Rittenhouses of the world = "a well regulated militia" .. then once shes on the bench will side with any State making unconstitutional restrictions on guns.

Perhaps interpret the word 'arms" as meaning only musket powder.

Yeah know, we want to be strict constructionists and all. Want to take the plain meaning of the words as they were meant and defined in 1791. No living breathing document crap here.

New justice should be confirmed much in the same way anti abortion hand maiden Barrett was. Very quickly and railroad the minority party.

Went over your head head, huh? Please list stupid unsubstantiated attacks by GOP Senators on Garland. Heck please list any attacks on Garland even if not stupid - (They weren't done due to McConnel shelving his nomination). You may say McConnel shelving the nomination was an asshole thing to do but it really wasn't an attack on Garland - more of one on Obama.

Re: Supreme Court vacancy

Love the fact Breyer wasn’t even allowed to announce his own retirement and effectively bullied out by dark money, corrupt Dems org.

Weird this was leaked in the winter and not the usual, after session summer. Oh for the “norms”

Re: Supreme Court vacancy

The process of appointing a SC Justice is simple math now. Its a numbers game, do you have the Presidency and Senate.

There is no "advise and consent" or filibuster now, its just a simple majority vote.

30 day confirmations for young politically entrenched nominees are the new normal.

SC is broke. House is broke. This democracy is broke. Just put the head down, work, eat, drink, smoke, procreate, watch tv and then go to sleep.

Go home team!

So, I asked if you could provide a list of attacks on Garland when he was nominated (stupid or otherwise) and this was your response. I'll take that as a concession on your part. Now that that is out of the way we will have hearings on Biden's nominee and there will be stupid attacks but it is still an opportunity for McConnel to show a difference in how the GOP approaches a nominee and how the Dems did. He can do this by marginalizing those GOP Senators that behave poorly during the process which would be a marked contrast to how the Dem Senators acted in Kavanaugh's (especially his) and Barret's hearings. Unlike the Dems, I just don't see the utility in getting shit all over yourself when you can't stop the nomination.
