So who will give the Ted Kennedy speech, to paraphrase, that in Gorsuch’s America, women will be impaled on coat hangers in back alley abortions, and blacks will go to the back of the bus, etc etc.????

It was very nice of Trump to invite Mrs. Scalia. He is a people person.

She was seated next to Mrs. Pence.

During the campaign, I had deep questions about Trump the nominee. But he gradually overcame my doubts on almost every issue, and the naming of Gorsuch as his nominee makes me very happy, and yes, proud, to have voted for Mr. Trump in November.

Thank you, Mr. President, for delivering Constitutionalists a nominee we can really get behind. You are a man of your word!

Neil Gorsuch is so squeaky clean that democrats will need to work overtime to manufacture some dirt on him that might stick somewhere in the universe.

Gorsuch will fill the vacancy created by the February 2015 death of Antonin Scalia.

Either Scalia walked around dead for a whole year, or some news-idiot needs a fact checker.

No posts are allowed on Supreme Court nominee announcements.

Didn't you get the memo?
