Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who has pledged to vote for the so-called “nuclear option” to lower the votes needed to break the filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee, said Tuesday that it was a “dark day for the United States Senate.”
Reuters reported Monday that McCain said he would support the filibuster rule change, “because we need to confirm [Supreme Court nominee Neil] Gorsuch,” McCain said. Democrats on Monday reached the 41 senators necessary to filibuster Gorsuch, even as he passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee on a party-line vote.
One of the greatest acts of journalistic malpractice is that our failed media bruited that Grandpa Walnuts is some sort of maverick. Has Walnuts ever gone against his own party in a vote? He always talks a good game, but then falls in line.
