Letter: This is outrageous

Published: 9/26/2020 12:01:12 AM

All Americans owe Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a debt of gratitude for demonstrating with such sharp clarity the abject hypocrisy, arrogance, and disregard for any semblance of fair play by the Republican leadership.

I refer, of course, to the rush to appoint a Supreme Court justice before the presidential election in less than two months. When the exact same situation presented itself in the last 10 months of Obama’s administration, McConnell and company insisted the appointment be delayed, because, in Mitch’s words, “the American people deserve a say” in the process through whom they would elect as president.

So, I guess the American people no longer have that right, according to the Republicans. The word “outrage” should be reserved for extreme situations. This is truly outrageous.
