“Until Justice Scalia’s death, America’s system functioned despite a minority party’s ability to veto Supreme Court nominees largely because we had strong norms against an opposition party refusing to confirm anyone named by a sitting president.” ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? Get a book or something and look up BORK (ie “Borking“ a Supreme Court Nominee). Pay particular attention to which party is causing the obstruction. 2 SCOTUS appointments are enough for ANY president either Republican or Democrat. Especially when Justice Ginsberg basically confirms they are largely lapdogs given her inappropriate comments on the current election.
