Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told reporters this morning that his committee will debate whether or not they should debate the merits of President Obama's yet to be named Supreme Court nominee tomorrow morning.
From The Hill:
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said the Senate Judiciary Committee will have a “full-blown debate” Thursday on whether to hold a hearing on a Supreme Court nomination.
“If you want to hear a full-blown debate on this issue, I think we’ll probably have one before our committee tomorrow while we’re also considering three of four judges and a piece of legislation as well,” he said.
I was going to quip that everyone should be allowed to debate whether or not they will do their jobs, but then nothing would get done. Someone has to do the work while Senate Republicans sit on their asses.
I suppose this is a step up from declaring that they won't talk about it at all, but that's not saying much.
