CNN: Mitch McConnell's outrageous hypocrisy on a Supreme Court vacancy
Mitch McConnell didn't get to his vaunted role as the Senate majority leader by playing nice. Or even fair. He got to where he is by playing hardball politics -- and not really caring whether people liked it or not.
Which brings me to Tuesday in Paducah, Kentucky, when McConnell was asked what his "position" would be on filling a Supreme Court vacancy if a justice were to leave the court in 2020. Here's what happened next, according to CNN's Ted Barrett:
"The leader took a long sip of what appeared to be iced tea before announcing with a smile, 'Oh, we'd fill it,' triggering loud laughter from the audience."
That is a "wow." It's a "wow" because McConnell, back in 2016, refused to even meet with Merrick Garland, who was then-President Barack Obama's nominee to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Even though Scalia had died in February 2016, McConnell argued that an outgoing president -- even one with 11 months left in office -- couldn't make a court pick due to its lifetime tenure.
