Wrong Again, Republicans!

On a scale of -3 to 0, how shocked are you that legal scholars say "Republican arguments for next president to choose Antonin Scalia's successor lack legitimacy within constitution and supreme court precedents"?
Republican calls for Barack Obama to refrain from nominating a successor to deceased supreme court justice Antonin Scalia are "odd" and "absurd," according to constitutional scholars and experts.

"The arguments that they are making – that this is a matter of principle – are nonsense," said Michael Dorf, professor of constitutional law at Cornell Law School. "It's just that they politically want some different kind of nominee."
Back to the drawing board at GOP HQ, I guess!
