LOL! The only way it could be better is if Sheets Byrd was on the back of Warner's horse with his arms wrapped lovingly around Warner. I was shocked during the press conference yesterday when Warner and Sheets started necking ... They really ought to wait until after 9 p.m. when the kids are in bed before they show that kind of smut.

I was surprised to find out that DeWine is very pro-life:

Lindsey Graham said every pending nominee is getting an up or down vote. One will go down, 7 get confirmed. Sorry, but I don't agree with your analysis. There has been a big change from just a week ago.

Kerry is supposed to have signed his Form 180 according to Kerry's spokesmam as reported by Brit Hume on Fox the other evening.

The reason I mention this is because Kerry's records should show he was pardoned or something like it by then Pres Jimmy Carter. I think the Warner was the Sec NAV at the time. He probably had a hand in this too!

Seems so. Too much power has shifted to DC from the states where it was/is a lot easier to keep up. One has to really be committed if there is to be any hope of corralling our reps. Most people I talk to don't even try. Hard to blame 'em; it ain't easy.

It would be nice if we could find a replacement for McCain too. Him or Hagel would be my first choices to replace.

Well done, FGS!

I repeat something I wrote a few days ago:

Compromise will invariably mean that at least two of the ten appointees will not be granted a floor vote. Not good enough! It’s got to be all or nothing! Compromise will signify that the spine transplant was not successful, and it will add one more item to the ever-growing list of evidence that Republicans do not comprehend the meaning of the title – or the responsibility incumbent in being – the majority party.

Hours away. The Republican majority was just hours away from invoking a crucial Constitutional option that would have at least served as a catalyst to restore a balance of power, and they capitulated.

Cowards. Sniveling cowards they are.

They are allowing leftist ideologues who govern by two sets of rules, and who bear no allegiance to this republic (and their allies, a handful who sit on our side of the aisle, apparently because they simply prefer the view – their seating arrangement having nothing to do with embracing a conservative ideology) to call the shots.

They are scuttling a last-ditch, completely Constitutional attempt to reclaim the American judiciary from blatantly leftist tyrants who have turned the term ‘justice under law’ inside out, who have declared the American Constitution subservient to global judicial whims, and who regularly scuttle our own citizen-cast ballots on local, state, and national issues, and decisions and laws passed by our elected representatives. Unconstitutional parliamentary maneuvers have been declared the rule of the day. Or, if it suits their fancy, they prefer to invent rules out of thin air, and declare the invoking of Constitutional options ‘tyrannical maneuvers’ capable of instigating a Constitutional crisis.

Senate history shows no uncalled-for examples of filibustering judicial nominees – and certainly no examples of doing so to a nominee who would clearly win a floor vote. That kind of unconstitutional partisan roadblock is historically unprecedented.

Yet two centuries of formal, accepted senate procedure has found itself stopped dead in its tracks by a minority party because that minority party has been in decline since the culture wars of the sixties. And over those forty years, they have succeeded in usurping much of the power designated to our elected branches of government and bequeathing it to an appointed, unaccountable judiciary that increasingly shares their leftist ideology. Commensurate with this unconstitutional shift in power has been a dramatic self-inflicted weakening of the backbone of their ideological opposition – namely ‘conservative’ legislators with a reverence for the Constitution (fast becoming an voluntarily endangered species).

Black has been declared white and white has been declared black … and the ‘conservatives’ remain silent.

The opposition has promised to behave, and to allow judicial nominees a vote, except for ‘extreme circumstances’. ‘Extreme circumstances’ no doubt include nominating judges who have declared a belief in God, a conviction that all newborns or nearly-borns deserve to live, or that the color of one’s skin must not elicit preferential treatment, etc. The ‘extreme circumstances’ loophole is big enough to drive a Mack Truck through (and I can hear those diesel engines roaring to life already).

What’s the sense in voting anymore? We may as well sweep in front of our own doors, take care of our own families, pray for the best, and allow the red-state ballot boxes to gather cobwebs.

The Constitution is in shreds. An activist left-leaning judiciary will eventually be the death of our republic. And in my dictionary, ‘compromise’ is now a four letter word, and ‘Republican’ is fast closing in on sporting the same label.

[We need someone now to take DeWine on.]

I was at a pro-life activist meeting the other night here in SW Ohio. A local Politician, a John Mitchel announced to us that he would be running against Mike DeWine. John is a retired AF officer. He is very Conservative and pro-life. All the attendees said they would support him. He appears to be a credible candidate.
