No SCOTUS without NRA approval says Mitch McConnell

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took his Supreme Court obstruction road show to the air this weekend, explaining on Fox News Sunday that there is no way, ever, that he will allow a vote on Merrick Garland. His overlords just won’t allow it.

WALLACE:  So, final question—just to make it clear—you’re saying no consider—no consideration of Judge Garland by this Congress even if Hillary Clinton wins the election?  No consideration by this Congress?  You’re going to stand firm on that even in a lame duck session?

MCCONNELL:  Yes. I can’t imagine that a Republican majority in the United States Senate would want to confirm in a lame duck session a nominee opposed by the National Rifle Association, the National Federation of Independent Business that represents small businesses that have never taken a position on the Supreme Court appointment before. They’re opposed to this guy.

I can’t imagine that a Republican majority Senate, even if it were assumed to be a minority, would want to confirm a judge that would most court dramatically to the left.  That’s not going to happen.
