You have to admit, it is so satisfying to watch someone set a trap for a person they hate and then end up falling into it themselves.
Especially when the intended victim has a stellar reputation for honesty and integrity.
The Democrats decided to filibuster the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as the next Supreme Court Justice because, as touchy-feely liberal, snowflakes put it, he will base his decisions on constitutional precedent instead of his feelings! God forbid a judge should rule according to what the US Constitution says!
So now, the Republicans will use a little thing called the “nuclear option” to confirm Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and that will have the Democrats foaming at the mouth, since it was supposed to be there only for Hillary to use.
From Right Wing News:
It is always satisfying to see an enemy fall into his own trap. In fact Psalm 7 says that those who “dig a deep pit to trap others” will “fall into it themselves. The trouble they make for others backfires on them.” And that is exactly what we see with Gorsuch confirmation process. The Senate Democrats, while Obama was President, voted to change the process for confirming nominees. At the time they believed it would help their side and their nominees be confirmed more quickly and over the objections of the Senate GOP. This process is known as “the nuclear option.”
The “nuclear option,” also known as the “constitutional option,” is a Senate parliamentary procedure that allows them to override a rule or precedent by a simple majority of 51 votes, instead of by a supermajority of 60 votes. It was put in place and meant to be used by Democrats, most especially after Hillary was elected President, so they could cram through her Liberal nominees to the Supreme Court. There’s only one problem with that, Hillary lost. And now “the nuclear option” is on the table for the Senate Republicans to use in getting Gorsuch confirmed over the objections of the Democrats.
Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said this week on Fox News Sunday, “Judge Gorsuch deserves to be confirmed. Unanimously well-qualified by the American Bar Association, my counterpart, Sen. Schumer, once called that the gold standard. I think it is noteworthy that no Supreme Court justice has ever, in the history of our country, been stopped by a partisan filibuster — ever.”
He insisted, “We’re going to confirm Judge Gorsuch this week.”
And for the Democrats that insistence means only one thing; that the “nuclear option,” the weapon they created to use against the GOP, just might be used against them instead. And that is some excellent poetic justice.

Isn’t it ironic when despicable people who try to stack the deck in their favor end up being the victims of their own evil schemes?
It’s even more enjoyable when the end result is watching the good guys win!
