Hey Speakdumbly, they didn't vote for Garland because of the Biden Rule.
Because of Dirty Harry you can't fillibuster the senate vote.
Because of Ginsberg justice nominies can't discuss their views on a subject that might come before the court.
Because Obama did such a crappy job the GOP holds both majorities
and last but not least if HRC wasn't such a loser that she lost to Trump who you say is the word's biggest loser you would not be in this mess in the first place.

There's no such thing as the biden rule, it's just something republicans invented to justify shredding the constitution:
Did Biden really say he would be against the president nominating a Supreme Court justice in an election year when political control of the Senate and White House were flipped?
We wanted to use our In Context feature to lay out what Biden said back then outside of McConnell's sound bite. Readers can determine if it's relevant now.
Biden's floor speech was on June 25, 1992, more than three months later in the election cycle than it is now.
There was no Supreme Court vacancy to fill.
There was no nominee to consider.
The Senate never took a vote to adopt a rule to delay consideration of a nominee until after the election.
Nonetheless, Biden took to the floor in a speech addressing the Senate president to urge delay if a vacancy did appear. But he didn't argue for a delay until the next president began his term, as McConnell is doing. He said the nomination process should be put off until after the election, which was on Nov. 3, 1992."
But if you say something on fox news enough, idiots will think it's true.
As for why republicans control government, it's because they are the best party at cheating.
