Unclear on the Concept
Prior to Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats detonating the nuclear option (boom!), Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said the following:
Be careful what you wish for. If the Democrats are bent on changing the rules, then I say go ahead. There are a lot more Scalias and Thomases out there that we would love to put on the bench.
That is: “If you dare to do this thing, then we’ll continue to nominate and confirm the same kind of judge we’ve already been nominating and confirming.” Someone needs to take Sen. Grassley aside and explain to him how to construct a threat.
