After reading your “McConnell is supremely embarrassing” editorial and a reader’s letter that agreed, I cannot compliment you enough for the humor your publication added to my day.
You spent a full quarter page stating the obligations of the Republicans to follow the Constitution. I know that for Republicans this may be news, but for Democrats it is so accepted that they will ignore the Constitution that it simply doesn’t make news, or it doesn’t fit your editorial agenda — that pesky obligation of the president to faithfully uphold the Constitution and enforce the laws of the land.
Please educate your staff or acknowledge the fact that you are simply writing to support an agenda. The Constitution does not state any time frame in which the Senate has to take up any nominee to the Supreme Court. In fact, the Constitution does not state that any nominee must make it out of committee to receive any vote. Imagine that, elections have consequences. It’s unpleasant if it is your ox being gored. If we are lucky as a nation, the issue will fade away with the election of a Republican to the presidency.
