1. Here's a radical idea...vote on Garland first...

Confirm Garland and allow Gorsuch to be renominated to the next opening as a compromise. Then the balance of the court is maintained, the seat from Scalia is not stolen and the court can begin to appear less hyper-partisan.

The goddamn justices themselves should unite to make this proposition and bring some kind of sanity back to the nomination process. Let's be honest...if this is allowed to happen and Gorsuch is seated under these conditions, then the future of the court is no longer a non-partisan body...it is a full-on political appointment and the impartiality of the SCOTUS is lost.

This is NOT just about Gorsuch....it is about the abrogation of the process by McConnell and his goons and the politicization of the SCOTUS to levels that dammage the integrity of the institution itself.

Many have suggested that fighting hard on Gorsuch is pouting, temper-tantrums or futile...fighting on Gorsuch and restoring the sanity to the nomination process is as patriotic and important an act as can possibly be done right now.
