Skip to comments.A WOMAN THE DEMS DON'T WANT TO HEAR
Posted on 01/12/2006 9:26:31 PM PST by george76
This is U.S. Appeals Court Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, a Clinton appointee who gave a glowing endorsement of her colleague, Sam Alito, earlier today, along with six other judges from the appeals court who appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee to support Alito.
Chuck Schumer walked out before the judges started to speak.
Teddy Kennedy showed up late, stayed for 10 minutes, then left.
Pat Leahy put on a dour face for a short time, and also bailed...
if Judge Barry were a screeching liberal moaning about Alito's threat to the female populace, the Dems would have been all ears--and Judge Barry would have been all over the evening news tonight.
But she wasn't...

I saw her on C-SPAN today, The Donald must be proud of his sister.............
Michelle Malkin hits the nail on the proverbial head once again.
The Donald in Drag!!
I listened to those Judges today and their testimony was nothing short of amazing. All I can say is that Sam Alito must be one fine human being
oops, that didn't post as well as planned. This is M. Malkin's quote.
I think it truly telling and at the same time unfortunate that these hearings are not more widely televised.
I've done next to nothing the last couple days so I could experience one of these hearings (my first that I've paid full attention to) and find it absolutely apalling some of the things the democrat senators are allowed to do/say/imply/manipulate/distort from their fancy leather chairs.
Ah yes, the necessary visual aid to go with the article. I'm a "sheila", but I do understand the need for our male FReepers to get their eye candy. LOL
Michelle Malkin is great.
Thank you Michele...if you are lurking.
Sam Alito is a good man and no matter what his political views might be, he and his family did not deserve the character assassination the Democrats have been waging against this obviously good man
There is no rule that the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have to attend the hearings?
They can just show up to bloviate, and spew bile when they feel like it, then go crap off the rest of the day or something?
Well, that's good to know.
FWIW, here is a list of all the members:
Arlen Specter-CHAIRMAN, PENNSYLVANIA
Orrin G. Hatch-UTAH
Patrick J. Leahy-RANKING DEMOCRATIC MEMBER, VERMONT
Charles E. Grassley-IOWA
Edward M. Kennedy-MASSACHUSETTS
Joseph R. Biden, Jr.-DELAWARE
Lindsey Graham-SOUTH CAROLINA
Russell D. Feingold-WISCONSIN
Charles E. Schumer-NEW YORK
Richard J. Durbin-ILLINOIS
They actually bailed on the hearings because they didn't like what they were going to hear?
What a bunch of creeps. These people aren't mature enough to be in positions of power.
You sound like a tasteless turd!
Is this really Donald Trump's sister? Seriously???
I don't think so! Those who have the backbone to speak the truth are very rarely challenged by the left. It's interesting to watch. The ones the dems attack are those who they believe they can cower to their will; or the dems have some dirt on them.
Evidently, this woman is her own person. A rare Clinton appointee who is not afraid of the Clintons.
OK, so you're an EXUBERANT tasteless turd.
Fox played portions of Judge Barry's testimony, and I have to tell you, I'd hate to be the lawyer who's trying to do the smoke-and-mirrors thing in front of her. She's one tough - and sharp - lady.
Wow. She was very clear spoken and eloquent.
I'll do that. Thank you.

Please FReepmail me if you would like to be added to, or removed from, the Michelle Malkin ping list...
More reason to keep the interviews to 2 days.
This is sort of a mirror image of the Swiftvets' situation with Kerry. Here the seven people most closely associated with Alito all testify to his superb qualifications and credentials to serve as a Supreme Court justice. In the Swiftvets' case the large majority of the people who were most closely associated with him in Vietnam all stated he was "unfit to serve." In each case the MSM is doing its best to ignore the testimony.
Interesting that the Pubs are able to present a panel with over 200 collective years of appellate judicial experience at the highest level, all vigourously supporting Judge Alito. The Dems can only respond with an associate professor of law (not even a full professor) from the nation's most liberal law school, Berkley. Game over, man.
Excellent clip from Michelle Malkin. Regarding the behavior;
"Chuck Schumer walked out before the judges started to speak. Teddy Kennedy showed up late, stayed for 10 minutes, then left. Pat Leahy put on a dour face for a short time, and also bailed..."
Well, it just shows what a childish bunch they really are. They no longer need discipline, but punishment for their deliberate and consistent bad attitudes and behavior.
Just watched the video clip of Judge Barry. They best not mess with her... Judge Barry is one judge you don't wanna tick off. She'll knock 'em into the middle of next week before they realize what happened.
"Are you a Democrat? Democrats claim moral superiority by calling someone a "tasteless turd" - very classy. "
I want to know how de Buillion knows what a full-flavor turd tastes like, so as to be able to identify a "tasteless turd" in comparison...
The Libs were never interested in a civil hearing or discussion. They merely wanted to attack all things perceived to be conservative about Alito with no rebuttal.
This episode shows what childish, petty jerks they are when they don't get their way. I also hope against hope that the Senate Republicans can see what can be accomplished when they stick together and smack down the BS from the Democrats.
All of the DUmmie Senators left the room when she and other judges who actually have worked with Judge Alito were speaking.
There is no search for the truth, here.
"I want to know how de Buillion knows what a full-flavor turd tastes like, so as to be able to identify a "tasteless turd" in comparison..."
He tried McDonalds versus BurgerKing?
Oops! We are talking birds here, so Church's versus KFC?
I cannot BELIEVE they were so RUDE to walk out on these judges testimonies!! ARRG! WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE! They must be the LEAST qualified people around. Ted Kennedy was asking for questions on his website. He can't think up his own questions? What exactly are these people paid to do?
The DUmmie Senators were usually reading questions prepared by "moveon" with no follow up questions. Just read the next written question.
"Alito shows an open mind, but will Senate Democrats?"
"One by one, the straw men set up by liberal special interest groups like People for the American Way and MoveOn.org have burned up quickly at the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito..."
"Alito has sworn that he will maintain an open mind on all issues that come before him at the high court...we can only hope the Senate Democrats will do the same when they vote on his nomination."
Seriously. It's handy to have a judge in the family - she performed the ceremony when The Donald married Melahhhhhnia, and also officiated when The Donald, Jr. married his fashion model a couple of months ago. :)
Egotistical, self-centered, immoral, and mostly law breaking jerks.
They actually make me yearn for some honest, well-mannered, sincere deluded socialists. It's pretty bad for the country when the main opposition party is led by morally bankrupt degenerates.
That doesn't surprise me. It just shows their contempt for the judicial process, and our constitution...
For Dems, the truth about Alito is like holding up a cross to a vampire
It is amazing...
"Sen. Edward M. Kennedy belongs to a social club for Harvard students and alumni that was evicted from campus nearly 20 years ago after refusing to allow female members."
"According to the online membership directory of the Owl Club, the Massachusetts Democrat updated his personal information -- including the address of his home, which is in his wife's name -- on Sept. 7, 2005."
"The club has long been reviled on campus as "sexist" and "elitist" and, in 1984, was booted from the university for violating federal anti-discrimination laws..."
Well, she sure seemed like a fine eloquent woman. Very solid and trusting. Someone I could be friends with. Just that kind of way she came across. Honest and sincere. :)
"Honest and sincere. :)"
Maybe she's not *biologically* related to The Donald, then. ;)
How do you suppose John Kerry gets away with missing almost all meetings of the committees he's assigned to?
Thanks for the link, as reading the article refreshed my memory regarding another dirty deed of Kennedy's. Was surprised to learn that any newspaper had the guts to write any of his nototious adventures. Makes me wonder if they are up to no good by doing this...
