    "Those senators most upset by the fate of the Garland nomination can take a major step toward liberating the process from the political paralysis that ails it by giving Gorsuch the full and fair consideration that Garland should have received." Really? If the Democrats were to approve someone in the Scalia mode like Neil Gorsuch, do you think there‘s a chance the Republicans would approve someone in the Brennan-Marshall mode like Geoffrey Stone or Erwin Chemerinsky if nominated by a future Democratic President? The Garland incident shows that trying to reach an accommodation with thugs like Mitch McConnell is like trying to reach an accommodation with North Korea.
