You want hypocrisy? How about Mitch McConnell blocking Barack Obama’s 11th hour Supreme Court nomination while defending his “duty” to push through Donald Trump’s nominee with a pious excuse about the “will of the voters” (whatever that was supposed to mean).

You want hypocrisy? How about Chuck Schumer and the Democrats screeching about Republicans’ hard-line questioning of SCOTUS pick Ketanji Brown Jackson after the circus Democrats subjected us to during the confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh.

The point, I suppose, is simply this: Neither Republicans or Democrats have a moral high road to claim when it comes to hypocrisy in politics. At the end of the day, both sides — all of us — are going to pick a hill to die on, based on whatever political ideologies we hold nearest to our heart.

About the Author: Ben Garrett

I am a journalist and erstwhile web designer from East Tennessee. Home is on the eastern border of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area. I write for a living, but not here ... because nobody is paying money for my opinions (except the New York Post, just once, and Donald Trump retweeted it).
