In an open letter printed in The Des Moines Register, a high school student named Jake Smith blew a hole right through the argument of several Senate Republicans. They've contended against holding hearings for Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland. And while Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said that justice should not be picked by a "lame duck" president, Smith, a mere teenager, pointed out that by the same logic—as a "lame duck" senator— Grassley should have to relinquish his powers until the election as well.
