A question for Sen. Chuck Grassley: How dumb can you get?

One would think that the ranking Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee would know what it means to “pack” a court.

But, in the case of Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, one would be wrong.

“Court-packing” is a term that dates back to the administration of Franklin Roosevelt, and it refers to expanding, or trying to expand, the number of seats on a given court for political reasons.

A president who merely nominates candidates of his own philosophical persuasion to fill vacancies on a certain court is not resorting to court-packing. He’s just doing what presidents always do.

But Chuck Grassley seems not to understand, as we see here.
