Why Conservatives Should Applaud—and Liberals Fear—Neil Gorsuch’s Nomination
I’ll probably disagree with almost everything this guy does (I am of the school of thought that Jeffersonian-principles stopped being a useful judicial north star about seventy years ago, but that’s just me), but at least he’s a real nominee, and not some Trump buddy.
Still, the fact remains, the way the system is supposed to work, this pick shouldn’t even exist. The GOP made up this ridiculous “run out the clock” strategy back in March of last year to avoid confirming (or even talking about) a much more centrist pick in Merrick Garland. So I don’t really care what crazy resistance tactics the Democrats come up with (even though they won’t work) – the Republicans haven’t operated in good faith, as a group, in years. So do whatever you want. I’m not interested in defending behavioral norms for one side of a two-sided debate.
