OK I have to admit that I’m impressed with the hard line taken by the GOP on Obama’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Here’s Mitch McConnell defending his decision this morning:
I fully expected them to cave completely by now, but they’re holding strong, even if there are a few stragglers. And it must be noted, that even if they relent and have hearings and a vote, that doesn’t mean they’ll approve of the nominee. For once, it looks like the Republicans are playing it smart.
