US President Barack Obama had a short list of three names of judges to replace deceased Associate Justice Antonin Scalia on the bench of the US Supreme Court. The president then nominated Chief Justice Merrick Garland of the DC Court of Appeals.

Republican Senators have vowed not to hold any hearings to provide “Advice and Consent,” as specified in the US Constitution, because Obama is a “lame duck” outgoing president! In an election year the selection process should be left to the incoming president, which Democrats have argued when the outgoing president was a Republican, e.g. George W Bush!

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest reports he overheard the following conversation occurring prior to the official nomination ceremony.

  • President Obama: Justice Garland I would like to nominate you for a seat on the US Supreme Court?
  • Chief Justice Merrick Garland: No, Schmuck do you think I’m some kind of Nebbish, who just fell off the onion truck, to get in between you, Senate Democrats and Senate Republicans. I’ll get all kinds of Chicken Crap from everybody thrown at me and my family?
  • President Obama: I will protect you!
  • Chief Justice Merrick Garland: No, I’m not a sacrificial lamb!
  • President Obama: Here’s an offer you can’t refuse. Do this for the USA, or I will have you transferred to the Antarctica Court of Appeals and Vice President Joe Biden will use his shotgun on the kneecaps of both your legs!
  • Chief Justice Merrick Garland: Yes

We certainly do live in “interesting times!”
