On a radio interview on Monday, John McCain said the following:
I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up. I promise you. This is where we need the majority.
That’s right, it doesn’t even matter who the nominee is, McCain is promising that the GOP will block them. It also puts the lie (again) to the Republican claim that they are blocking Merrick Garland because they believe the next president should pick the next Supreme Court justice.
It also really pisses me off about McCain. So much for his motto “Country First“. Or did he give that up when he picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate? He should change his motto to “I will debase myself in any way possible to get reelected”.
And what is his strategy? Leave the Supreme Court empty-handed and deadlocked until a Republican is elected president? Like that is going to happen any time soon (or if ever, given that the demographics against them are getting worse). And even if a Republican does eventually become president, does he think the Democrats will be cooperative and confirm after being blocked for what may be decades?
Our country is screwed.
