Obama Nominates Nickelhead Merrick Garland To Supreme Court?

Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have been falsely accused of allegiance to this despicable band, but it is well know the Obama Administration is full of Nickelheads and Merrick Garland is part of this cabal.

Separated by Nickelback? Merrick Garland and Prof. William Jacobson

Legal Insurrection: Meet Merrick Garland (that statement by Orin Hatch might be a problem)

Hot Air: Crafty! Especially right after Trump's big win.

Volokh Conspiracy: Initial Thoughts

Ben Shapiro: Three Options

AoSHQ: Some guy

Rule 5 and FMJRA

Rush Limbaugh: Obama is not serious about GarlandSchumer took out Rubio and Kasich: The GOPe's last best hope

This pick is intended to drive a wedge into Republicans (do they take a "centrist" who is 180 degrees opposite of Scalia on gun rights) or wait for a Trump or Hillary pick?  If he goes down, they use it as an issue in the election. If he goes through, Republicans are demoralized. I do not think it much of a surprise.  Still, there is really no answer other than this:

#NeverGiveUpNeverSurrender: Let President Cruz Pick

RedState: Come back in August


  1. Are you really sure he is against the 2nd Amendment? Reading his judgements he seems to support the US Constitution.

    1. He was part of the panel that got reversed on the SCOTUS Heller decision. The general consensus is he is not seeing an individual right under the Second Amendment (or certainly a much weaker one than what Scalia and the other conservative justices supported).
