For the second night in a row, President Trump infused a little reality show magic into politics. If the firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates was a DC episode of "The Apprentice," the roll out of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch
was one of those season-ending episodes of "The Bachelor." There was drama in the hours before the announcement as reports emerged that both Gorsuch and fellow finalist Thomas Hardiman were headed to DC. Turns out Hardiman never made it to Washington. The rose, or um, nomination went to Gorsuch. Despite the theatrics, Republicans were thrilled with the substance. Gorsuch is exactly the kind of solid conservative
the GOP wanted to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats were left fuming and trying to decide
what to do next. They can either fight Gorsuch's nomination and risk the GOP getting rid of the filibuster (the Dems best weapon) for Supreme Court nominees, or they can let him through and risk further enraging an already angry left.
