1. If that's because of the folks having a hissy-fit because RBG did not retire: yes indeed

As I said the other day in the same vein: Neil Gorsuch. There was just no way in hell Mitch McConnell was going to let Obama have another judge.

When asked afterward how he'd handle a similar situation during Trump's admin, Moscow Mitch said flat-out, without a trace of shame, that he'd hustle thru a conservative in record time.

Please, God, let RBG hang on.

2. It was a bet with house money

If Clinton won, then the Garland nomination would have gone through just as it would have/should have while Obama was president. It cost McConnell nothing to delay, except for some liberal malcontents insisting on a president's constitutional prerogatives. But when the three rail billiards shot successfully drew to the inside straight on the hail mary pass and Trump won, McConnell's intransigence paid off bigly.

4. We are going to be paying for this for a lifetime.

It all worked out perfectly for conservatives.
