By now you’ve probably heard that the Senate has “gone nuclear,” paving the way to confirm a host of judicial nominees in waiting. What you may have missed is Majority Leader Harry Reid trolling Minority Leader Mitch McConnell with the best of them.
I’m old enough to remember when Sen. McConnell insisted on up-or-down votes for judicial confirmations. https://t.co/qEcBrh3yNR

I believe Harry Reid called himself old and then mocked Mitch McConnell with a Vine, and it was brilliant.
He’s right, by the way, Republicans only favor up-or-down votes when they’re picking the nominees.
As a bonus, this also made me laugh this afternoon.
Sen. McConnell spokesman: "I'm looking forward to President Rubio stacking the courts."
