The devils, er dems, were asserting that precisely because Ashcroft was religious he wouldn't be able to do his job.

Evidently only G-Dless moral relativists are allowed to serve their country.

You know, this has nothing to do with Alito at this point, it's all about one-upmanship by these narcissistic creeps.

Memo to the DC Sandwich King......don't mess with that long-time, experienced, wily old prosecutor/defense attorney, Arlen Specter.

For a minute there, I thought Senator "I'll Have a Doddwich to Go!" was about to pop his brain cell.

We just witnessed a DC-dick-waving contest -- something rarely if ever done in public, something we're not likely to witness again very often, or very soon.

It takes a lot for one A/H to provoke another with the cameras rolling live.

Leahy, Kennedy...all of the democrats are desperate now. Look for more outrageous and out of order requests by the dems. Most will be to slow down the proceedings, but Spector needs to stay tough, the democrats are capable of anything!

Coburn pointed out that Senator Durbin has done a complete 180 turn around on his Pro-Life position. And pointed out that Durbin wrote letters about his pro-life position up until 1989.

Ditto--I hate to say "I told you so," but I was one of Sen. Specter's few defenders several months back.

When this is all over, historians will look back and credit Sen. Specter with helping to usher in a new conservative era in the federal judiciary. He is keeping his end of the bargain.

"Don't be premature, Senator Kennedy."

I'm sure it's not the first time he's heard THAT before!




He should have told Ted, "We'll drive off that bridge when we need to."

He said Durbin was pro-life anti-abortion until 1989, and if Durbin can change his mind, so can Alito. It was great.

Chances are somewhere in D.C. this message will air from D.C. police dispatch...

Dispatch: All officers in the vicinity of ..... respond to a call from a local bar owner of ....... who has filed a complaint about a large angry intoxicated fat man screaming "I am a U.S. Senator and he won't be treated this way" and attempting to fight with other patrons in the bar.

Not funny to me. ARe you a fashion critic for a living or just have a lot of time on your hands?

??? What did my post have to do with fashion? I was referring to a grammatical error in which a singular noun (lady) was used to refer to two people (wife and daughter). Get a grip ...

Kennedy has released the letter he sent to Specter.
Tim Russert is somehow involved.

One good thing about this - Specter has so much experience stabbing the GOP in the back that he ought to be able to easily spot the shank in Leahy's hand before he gets a chance to bury it in Arlen's back.

I'm shocked that Senator "Kerry-Specter 2004: For Working Families" has genuinely grown a pair. Maybe Karl Rove has some interesting photos of the Senator stored under the weather control machine.
