Not only are Republicans dim they’re quite stunningly slapdash fuckall brainless stupid.
“Well we have 80 years of precedent of not confirming Supreme Court justices in an election year.”
You are wrong.
“80 years not confirming…he was confirmed in ’87.”
You have become dangerously unsound…please refrain from talking.
Watch Debate Moderator Attack Ted Cruz Over His CORRECT Scalia Answer (VIDEO)
This was amazing…
Cruz rightly pointed out it’s been precedent for 80 years not to do this… Dickerson said he wanted to get the “facts” out there. There’s only one problem.

It IS amazing. The way Ted Cruz somehow ends up CORRECT after having CONFIRMED he is, in fact, Bungholio-élan stupid. Senator Lee pipes up:

It is “standard practice” to not confirm nominations to the Supreme Court in an election year, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said Saturday, following news of the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.
As a result, he said the Senate shouldn’t confirm President Obama’s nominee to replace Scalia.
“The fact of the matter is that it’s been standard practice over the last 80 years to not confirm Supreme Court nominees during a presidential election year,” Grassley said.
