Maybe he should get a medal for his honesty.

Do you think it would be a happier ending if he had missed all of his shots altogether? Or maybe the victim should just be thankful that he was there with good intentions?

Isn't she the former news anchor who lied about being ill to go on vacation? All I remember is that she ran against Constantine and lost and she's part of some sort of creationism institute.

So is the Florida cop also a bad cop for not firing four shots into the man's chest instead? Because I keep reading comments here about how quickly a suspect without a gun can cover the distance to a cop and murder them dead, so cops need to shoot to kill because real life is not like to where cops shoot at a leg.

Maybe, but my point is I think Pres. Obama considers it a serious nomination and out of respect for Garland will continue to treat it as such.

That would be the only achievement I would help that asshole achieve.

I dunno, it just seems like if Obama decides to withdraw the nomination, it's like saying that this was not a serious nomination. It's kind of tacky, like disinviting someone whom you were going to take out to dinner for their birthday. (Not sure if that's a good analogy, but hopefully it gets the general idea across.)

I suppose the way he could put it is that he has decided to defer to his successor to make her own nomination, but otherwise, if Garland doesn't request it, I just don't see a withdrawal.

Cory Booker's first name is misspelled - FYI.

Pretty much says all you need to know about the kind of expert in national politics he is and why it's two reporters who cover local politics that the Stranger sent to Cleveland instead of its national political reporter.

I don't see Obama withdrawing Garland except at Garland's request. He seems unlikely to jerk a third party around just to screw with his adversaries.

Indeed! I can tell you that in the last couple of decades in Seattle, I have never feared a Soviet nuclear strike.
