The Republicans claim that President Obama is “playing politics” with the Supreme Court vacancy by having the nerve to tell them that he will nominate someone to the court despite the GOP’s firm stand against him because he’s not really the president any more, or, to some of them, never was. Besides, if you want to play politics, you have to really do it right.
Like this guy:
“It’s a different situation,” Johnson said. “Generally, and this is the way it works out politically, if you’re replacing — if a conservative president’s replacing a conservative justice, there’s a little more accommodation to it.”
That’s how it’s done, folks.
I can’t wait until Russ Feingold whips his ass.
