Nope, Didn't Happen

Noon came and went, and no Supreme Court nomination from the President:

U.S. Circuit Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court expired at noon Tuesday, clearing the way for President-elect Donald Trump to fill a vacancy Senate Republicans held open for months with an appointee championed by conservatives.

That means Roe is probably in deep trouble sooner rather than later.

It also means, I think that the possibility of Obama taking any of the other out-of-the-box actions we've thought about, has shrunk to almost nothing. And no, #TrumpLeaks, you're not going to get the President to do anything unless you have tapes or e-mails of Trump or his people communicating directly with the FBI or Putin's camp.

I, for one, do not welcome our new orange overlord.
