This is where I will put my upsets, resentments, reasonings and logical commentary on why liberalism is a threat to the United States of America! Dagney Taggert is a character from Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged", but she was also my teacher. She taught me the fallacy of my liberal upbringing. If you are a liberal, you may see some of the fallacy of it here, too...unless you're braindead!
The heated exchange between Kennedy and Arlen Specter today, wherein Specter accused Teddy of trying to take over the committee, left me wondering what Arlen's true upset was all about. You know how we humans will blow up over some little nothing of an issue, when there is a far deeper reason for the blow-up? I got the distinct impression that there was something far deeper eliciting Mr. Specter's angst-filled response. Anyone know what it was truly all about? Here's a transcript of the exchange:
"SPECTER: Quite candidly, I view the request... If it's really a matter of importance, you and I see each other all the time and you have never mentioned it to me, and I do not ascribe a great deal of weight. We actually didn't get a letter, but --
KENNEDY: You did get a letter, are you saying?
SPECTER: Well, now wait a minute. You don't know what I got. I'm about to --
KENNEDY: Yes I do, senator, since I sent it.
SPECTER: Well, the sender does not necessarily know what the recipient gets, Senator Kennedy. You are not in a position to say what I receive.
SPECTER: If you'll bear with me for one minute --
KENNEDY: But, uh, uh, I am in a position to say what I sent to you on December 22.
SPECTER: You're in a position to tell me what you sent.
KENNEDY: I renew my request, senator, and if I'm going to be denied, then I'd appeal the decision of the chair.
SPECTER: Don't be premature, Senator Kennedy. I'm not about to make a ruling on this state of the record.
KENNEDY: Mr. Chairman, I'd, uh, appeal the ruling of the chair on this.
SPECTER: There has been no ruling of the chair! "
Did anyone wonder why the Republicans did not treat Justice Ruth Bader Ginzberg to similar treatment when Clinton nominated her? I certainly have...except I understand that the GOP does not want to be seen as petty, unlike the donks. Unfortunately! This is a woman who has suggested that the Constitution may make marriage illegal, who thinks we should have coed prisons, and other ideas that only a far left liberal could come up with...but did the GOP didn't rake her over the coals as they have done with all GOP nominees dating back to Judge Bork. These donk paragons of virtue treated Clarence Thomas like a sex offender, with absolutely no proof of wrongdoing! They have accused even Janice Rogers Brown of being a racist!!
As much as we, hubby and I, hate what they are doing to this fine man and his family, there is a tiny chuckle that rises up when we think of the consequences this will have for the donks in November.
