Democrats Do The Supreme Court Twist

Senate Democrats who demanded Republicans give a vote to Merrick Garland in 2016 are now insisting the "McConnell Rule" be followed by delaying a vote on President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee until after the midterms.

Democrats are still fuming over the refusal of Senate Republicans to hold a hearing and vote for Garland, President Barack Obama's selection following the death of Antonin Scalia in 2016. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.), citing then-Sen. Joe Biden (D., Del.) in 1992, said the American people should have a say in the selection of the next Supreme Court Justice, since it was a presidential election year.

The Washington Post called Democrats' charges of base hypocrisy "bogus," since McConnell made clear he was talking about a presidential election year.

Trump will make his second nomination to the Supreme Court in as many years following the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, leading to liberal fears of a longtime conservative majority on the nation's highest court.

These lawmakers, who don't know the name of Trump's nominee yet, have changed their tune from two years ago in calling for a vote to be put off until after November.

Give a Democrat a good Enema and there is nothing left to bury.
