Abandoning All Intellectual Honesty, Democrats Attack One of Elena Kagan’s Loves

Democrats cannot help but beclown themselves over Neil Gorsuch. After Barack Obama’s election, Democrats convinced themselves they would never, ever again be in the minority so it was safe to scrap the filibuster for nominations.

Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer whipped the Democrats into line and forced through the change. They did not scrap the filibuster. They just determined it did not apply to nominations. They carefully exempted Supreme Court nominations. But, so convinced were they that Hillary Clinton would win the Presidency and they would retake the Senate, Reid and Schumer preemptively announced they would scuttle the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees in 2017.
