Everyone who pretended that Merrick Garland shouldn't be nominated because it was an election year is now free to admit that this was a bullshit excuse.

"Speaking at a Paducah Chamber of Commerce luncheon in Kentucky, McConnell was asked by an attendee, "Should a Supreme Court justice die next year, what will your position be on filling that spot?"

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."
