|Oh damn, did I say that out loud?|
"I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up," McCain said. "I promise you. This is where we need the majority."
This was said during an interview on 1210 WPHT Philadelphia radio, and later the Senator's office tried to walk the statement back:
"Senator McCain believes you can only judge people by their record and Hillary Clinton has a clear record of supporting liberal judicial nominees," communications director Rachael Dean told TPM in a statement. "That being said, Senator McCain will, of course, thoroughly examine the record of any Supreme Court nominee put before the Senate and vote for or against that individual based on their qualifications as he has done throughout his career."
Yeah you know I tend to think that what McCain said in this unguarded moment is probably a lot closer to the truth then that prepared statement issued by his office to save his ass.
Remember the Republicans have been blocking the confirmation of Merrick Garland since way back in February, and clearly have no intention of EVER letting a Democrat choose another Supreme Court justice.
In other words they have no intention of DOING THEIR DAMN JOBS. Not now and not once Hillary becomes out next President.
Just another reminder of why it is so very important for the Democrats to regain control of the Senate.
Oh, and Fuck John McCain!
