Another (concurring) opinion on McConnell's SCOTUS scam

I grabbed a line from the following Washington Post editorial:

Trump can't break the Supreme Court

Here's the line, regarding Mitch's play to not let the Senate consider President Obama's pick to fill the Supreme Court vacancy that occurred when Antonin Scalia died.   Even though the Senate followed the scummy lead of Mitch the Bitch, President Obama nominated Merrick Garland.

McConnell’s gambit was a raw power play — to put it charitably — with scanty precedent at best.

I certainly agree with that assessment.
