Conservative Republicans immediately politicize Scalia's death

Justice Antonin Scalia died yesterday. And within a few minutes, Conservative Republicans have politicized his death by fretting over his replacement on the Supreme Court. The man has been dead for less than a day folks. Can't we mourn his death and celebrate his life?

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) has said he wants the next president to pick his successor. What the .... ? Dude, President Obama has 340 days left. This is the Supreme Court. Decisions need to be made in a timely manner. These are critical decisions that affect the nation. Let me guess. he wants a right wing judge. Because if she's a liberal or moderate, the right wing is afraid of decisions that don't fit the conservative mode. I'm sorry but the needs of the nation trump conservative fears. It's simply despicable that conservative Republicans put their political views ahead of the welfare of the nation.
