BREAKING: President Obama Calls on Gov. Pence Not To Appoint New Indiana Supreme Court Justice

President Obama released the following statement today calling on Governor Mike Pence not to appoint a new Indiana Supreme Court Justice until after the election:

“Indiana is in the middle of a highly consequential gubernatorial election. Hoosiers should determine their next Supreme Court justice by their votes in November. I believe Indiana will be best served by a justice who holds the Indiana Constitution in the same high regard as Justice Dickson did throughout his distinguished tenure on the Indiana Supreme Court.”

Now, that sounds pretty f*cking stupid doesnt it? It should because it is Senator Dan Coats statement calling for President Obama not to fill Justice Scalia’s seat.

Point made!
