Karma’s A Bitch Ain’t It?

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) held the Senate floor for roughly 15 hours in an attempt to launch an old-school filibuster to block Judge Neil Gorsuch from getting on the Supreme Court. He ended it around 10:30 AM Wednesday morning.  Poor Jeff, bless his heart, blathered and babbled pointlessly to an empty chamber in an elaborate political stunt meant to attract attention that cannot and will not stop Republicans from putting the president’s nominee on the bench of the country’s highest court.

Before Merkley “held the floor”, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed a motion to vote to end the debate on his confirmation. That motion paved the way for a vote on Thursday to confirm Gorsuch to a lifetime appointment as the next Justice of the United States Supreme Court. 

Democrats have Harry Reid to thank for what the despondent Democrats  have called a “stolen seat”.
