Last night I saw Amy Klobuchar interviewed on CNN and the reporter pressed her to say that Breyer should resign while there's a Dem president, was wondering why no one wishes RBG had resigned when Obama was president, but of course there was Merrick Garland.#
On the other hand, in hindsight, we should have had the fight over the Supreme Court when Garland was nominated and McConnell refused to confirm. Obama could have taken that as an affirmation, and seated Garland. It would have been a better time to fight.#
I said it at the time. If McConnell won't vote, then after a decent amount of time, Garland takes the seat. Set a new precedent, if the Senate abdicates its responsibility, we go forward without them.#
The good guys have been scared of a fight, and the Repubs have been walking all over the Constitution. You can't be nice always, sometimes you have to hit back. We've been delaying and delaying. And btw, where are the indictments of Trump, Mr Attorney General?#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
