A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.



Monday, January 23, 2006
A number: Three Republicans voted against Ruth Bader Ginsburg for the Supreme Court. Nine Republicans voted against Stephen Breyer for the Supreme Court. Twenty-two Democrats (50 percent of Dems in the Senate) voted against Chief Justice John Roberts for the Supreme Court. Between 30 and 40-some Democrats will likely vote against Justice Sam Alito.

On Fox News, former Democrat Sen. Dennis DeConcini (N.M.) tried to downplay the disparity in how Democrats treat GOP nominees and how the Republicans have treated Democratic nominees for the nation's highest court.


It happens on both sides of the aisle. And the process is to ask the questions. My best judgement is that Judge Alito will be confirmed and the vast majority of Democrats will vote against him as they did against [Chief Justice William] Rehnquist. And that happens to be the process. And a number of Republicans voted against Ginsburg and also against Breyer. That's the process.


I would hope that the next time there is a Democrat in the Oval Office (hopefully shortly after I die of old age), that the Republicans remember "the process" and make sure a vast majority of them vote against whomever the Democrat president nominates. Hopefully that vast majority will be large enough to ensure an embarrassing defeat.

Comments:
And why didn't the show host follow up with a rebuttal to Deconcini's comments? When the response isn't challenged it gives credence to their answers.
 
Dennis DeConcini represented Arizona in the Senate, not New Mexico.
