McConnell blocks court nominee on 'principle' - poor guy doesn't have a dictionary

In response to an FT piece by Barney Jopson on March 21st 2016, entitled 'Republicans dig in heels over Supreme Court nominee'

'Mr. McConnell said his refusal to consider Mr. Garland was about principle — that Supreme Court vacancies should not be filled in the final year of a president’s term'

Whatever else this is about, it is absolutely nothing to do with any such 'final year principle'. Indeed the word 'principle' coming from the mouth of a Demopublican leader is a contrarian indicator. It is also another straw on the back of people who are utterly sick of the lies that spew from the Congress almost every time one of them opens their mouth.

And they still don't get why Donald Trump is on a roll and Bernie Sanders is still in the race...they're dumb as well as corrupt.
