Here’s Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), who had been wavering slightly on the nomination issue, parroting the same moronic nonsense about the tradition of presidents not nominating Supreme Court Justices during an election year – the same nonsensical bullshit we discussed in this post with Marco Rubio.
I urge Pres. Obama to follow a tradition embraced by both parties and allow his successor to select the next Supreme Court justice. (4/5)

It is genuinely amazing the kind of lockstep fealty the GOP can muster, getting non-comatose members of Congress to publicly say things that are completely nonsensical with a straight face. They’re like derptonian robots.
The only positive thing is reading the Twitter thread will restore some of your faith in humanity. It actually kept me laughing for a good ten minutes. Seriously, it’s choice and hilarious.
