The 3 boxes of freedom; the soap box, the ballot box and the ammo box
WASHINGTON – The Senate debate over Supreme Court nomineeSonia Sotomayor turned bitter Wednesday, after Democrats warned the GOP it would pay a steep price for opposing the judge who would be the first Hispanic justice, and a top Republican charged they were playing destructive racial politics.
Majority Leader Harry Reid implored Republicans Wednesday to join Democrats in voting to confirm Sotomayor next week, warning that GOP opposition would bring the same sort of public backlash that followed the party's spirited opposition to measures that would have given some illegal immigrants a chance to gain legal status.
"I just think that their voting against this good woman is going to treat them about the same way that they got treated as a result of their votes on immigration," said Reid, D-Nev.
Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, the head of his party's Senate campaign committee and a Sotomayor opponent, shot back that Reid and other Democrats were trying to exploit the nomination and "giving cover to groups and individuals to nurture racial grievances for political advantage."
Kliphnote: It is not what she stands for, it's because she would become the "first Hispanic justice".
Doesn't matter that most of her rulings have been overturned by a higher court.
And she thinks it is just fine to re-write the Constitution, not interpret it.
The same Democrats that threatened to filibuster a GOP nominee to the Supreme Court.
Isn't politics an ugly game?
CBS anchor Dan Rather acknowledged for the first time yesterday that there are serious questions about the authenticity of the documents he used to question President Bush's National Guard record last week on "60 Minutes."
"If the documents are not what we were led to believe, I'd like to break that story," Rather said in an interview last night. "Any time I'm wrong, I want to be right out front and say, 'Folks, this is what went wrong and how it went wrong.' "
Kliphnote: Could it be Oh Danny boy, you were wishing you had Bush on something?
The "very survival of American democracy" will get by without you, Dan.
BTW "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?" What is it, Dan?
