@5: you should get butt hurt over the fact that republicans should not have had this nominee at all. Garland should have had a hearing. He probably wouldn't have been approved either, but they stole Obama's constitutional right to nominate a qualified candidate and have him voted on yea or nay. Then, they changed the rules when they didn't get enough votes for this guy. It's not his qualifications that are the issue or his political leanings; it is the republican's refusal to play by the rules and willingness to fuck over everything they say they hold in high regard whenever it gets in their way. Our country is over, and it is almost entirely republican's fault. We can blame dem voters all we want, but these guys gerrymander their power, and then actively destroy the constitutional laws when it serves their purpose to keep power.
