GOP Backing Down From Pledge To Block Obama SCOTUS Pick

I told ya so… (Via Washington Times) It took longer than I thought it would:

Even before Mr. Obama stated his case, there were signs that Republican unity was wavering on the notion of blocking any nominee out of hand.

SenateJudiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, didn’t rule out confirmation hearings and a vote by his panel on an Obama selection.

“I would wait until the nominee is made before I would make any decision,” Mr. Grassley said Tuesday in a conference call with Iowa radio reporters. “In other words, take it a step at a time.”

Asked whether he thought the controversy over filling the court vacancy might endanger his re-election chances this fall, Mr. Grassley said, “I think I have a responsibility to perform, and I can’t worry about the election. I’ve got to do my job as a senator, whatever it is. And there will be a lot of tough votes between now and the next election.”

His comments appeared to be a softening from a statement shortly after Justice Scalia’s death, when Mr. Grassley said it was “standard practice” not to nominate or confirm candidates for the Supreme Court in an election year.

 

But the anti-gun media keeps telling me…

… That the cops will just shoot the good guy with a gun when they arrive. Turns out that it didnt happen like that. Again.

Of course common sense tells you that 99% of the time the cops will be able to tell who the good guy is when they arrive, but we know the media is not about common sense.

 

Gun grabbers now count animals killed while hunting as ‘gun violence victims’…

Actual Headline over at the Huff Post:

The Victims of Gun Violence Politicians Won’t Talk About

And then they post cute pictures of Bambi. Seriously, they opine like its a Sandy Hook massacre or something. Its outlandish.

Meanwhile, everyone should be thanking hunters for the countless deer taken each year because of the countless lives that are saved. Yes, the whitetail deer is the most deadly animal in North America. Nationwide, 1 out of every 169 drivers will collide with deer each year… About 100,000 accidents each year.

Deer car accident

They should actually be thanking us.
