Let’s work together to get nothing done.

So, what’s happening in the Justice Department?

President Obama announced Saturday that he would nominate U.S. Atty. Loretta Lynch to be the nation’s next attorney general

I’m sure Republicans will cooperate with this:

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who is expected to become the Senate majority leader next year, did not indicate whether Lynch would be acceptable to his party. But he said the confirmation should be voted on by the new Senate.

“Ms. Lynch will receive fair consideration by the Senate,” McConnell said. “And her nomination should be considered in the new Congress.”

That would be shorthand for McConnell saying they’re going to filibuster so she won’t be confirmed this year and it’s quite likely that she won’t be confirmed next year either. And if President Obama wants it to go forward this year, I guarantee that Republicans and many a newspaper will decry him for not working with the Congress.
