Republicans Now Have to Face Up to Merrick Garland


Everybody thinks Donald Trump will lose the general election in November. If that’s true, what should Republicans do about the Supreme Court?

  1. Go ahead and confirm Merrick Garland. He’s about as good as they’re likely to get from a Democrat.
  2. Continue their holdout and let Hillary Clinton nominate someone even more liberal next year.

Decisions, decisions. But it’s a live question. Garland is now officially a pretty serious dilemma for Republicans.
