All the Left had to do was NOT be crazy.
Or spend 24 hours a day crying on Twitter …
Guess that was just a little too much to ask of them. It started here with Brian Schaatz (note, this editor kept from making a childish joke about his last name and it was really, really, really, really hard).
Republicans are letting a Republican President overturn decades of bipartisan American foreign policy via a rolling, extemporaneous series of grievances because tax cuts.

Ooooh, he used BIG words so you know he’s super serious.
It’s not just tax cuts. They stole a Supreme Court seat too. https://t.co/MFOteFSRCu

MUAHAHAHAHA! That’s right! Republicans snuck into SCOTUS chambers and stole Garland’s seat even though he hadn’t been appointed. You know, this argument is almost as pathetic as the whole, ‘Hillary won the popular vote so we should dump the Electoral College’ bit … almost.
From here on out the thread just got more and more hilarious, even though we doubt seriously that Ian was amused.
Well, Democrats stole my health insurance, so let’s call it a wash…

Read the Constitution. It’s called ‘advice & consent’. Note the second word. It is not ‘assent’. There’s no rubber stamp. The Senate did not give its consent. It really is that simple.

How was it stolen? Explain how the Constitution was violated to “steal” the seat. You’re blowing hot air and you know it.

If people like Ian weren’t blowing hot air they’d have no air to blow in the first place.
Wait, that sounds bad.
They’re stealing August recess to appoint more conservative judges. Stealing, I tell you. Stealing

Yes. This. ^
Thank God. Gorsuch is a much better choice than Garland.
