Really? Really?! Senator Al Franken – someone who is in desperate need of an update on his persona as a clown – actually wastes his time addressing the next nominee for our great nation’s Supreme Court by asking her about Perry Freaking Mason?!
It’s a circus, an absolute circus. The Democrats aren’t even bothering with the pretense of appearing fair, even-handed, and bipartisan; they’re flat out making love to this woman in public, praising her nonstop (I swear, I heard one senator this morning repeat the word “good” about five times in five minutes while describing her), or they’re flat out clowning around. It’s disgusting!
Perry Mason… I’d love, love to hear what Minnesotans have to say about their new Senator now. Who wants to bet he’ll be a one-term wonder?
I’m so sick and tired of this whole Sonia Sotomayor mess. I tried to listen to the questioning again this morning, but after a few mind-numbing hours, I just couldn’t take it anymore. Each and every time she said “suprene court” instead of “surPREME court”, I just about wanted to scream. I say if you can’t even pronounce the court you’re being nominated for, you shouldn’t actually sit on it, don’t you think?
I’m sure she’s a lovely woman and all, but I just can’t get past the idiocy displayed by some of these senators, and her absolute nerve in expecting us to believe her each and every time she flat out contradicts herself with regard to her many, many controversial past statements. Either she lied by misrepresenting herself over a 15+ year period of time, or she’s perjuring herself now in changing her story. Neither option is very appetizing, but it has to be one or the other. Honestly now, which one do you think is more likely, hmm?
And sure enough, I knew this would happen, but her repudiations of her past comments are ticking off certain liberals who used to just love her to pieces. Check it out. Big surprise. What’s that old saying? If you try to be everything to everyone, you’ll soon end up being nothing to nobody.
Just tell the truth, Sonia, whatever it is. Isn’t that the honorable thing to do?
