Actor James Woods offered an elegant piece of advice to Republican senators when President Obama nominates Supreme Court appointees to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia — just turn the president’s own tactics around on him.
Late Sunday afternoon he tweeted:
This could not be simpler: absolutely do not confirm an #Obama SCOTUS nominee. Don’t discuss it; just ignore him, as he does the law.

Simply stated, yet elegant and true. https://t.co/8cwjeQlOX2

But it really doesn’t matter who Obama appoints, so long as the GOP Senate follows Woods’ sage advice.
@RealJamesWoods great post!

@RealJamesWoods Unlike countless Obama actions, the Senate has every constitutional right to ignore his nominee.
