Former Democrat Presidential Nominee and head of the Democratic party, Senator John Kerry on why he is filibustering Judge Alito;
"“If you need proof, just look at the response of Ann Coulter. Ms. Coulter is as inflammatory and as conservative as anyone in the country. She makes her living through character assassination. She denounced the nomination of John Roberts. She attacked the nomination of Harriet Miers, calling her completely unqualified and lamenting that President Bush had ‘thrown away a Supreme Court seat.’ Yet she celebrated the nomination of Samuel Alito, stating that Bush gave Democrats ‘a right-hook’ with this ‘stunningly qualified’ nominee. This from a woman who said that Republicans need to nominate a person who ‘wake[s] up every morning . . . chortling about how much his latest opinion will tick off the left.’
"“Failed Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork had a similar reaction. He denounced Miers’ nomination as ‘taking the heart out of a rising generation’ of conservative constitutional scholars and ‘widen[ing] the fissures within the conservative movement.’ Yet he praised Alito’s nomination as ‘substantially narrowing’ that rift. In fact he called the nomination something to ‘rejoice’ because, if Alito were confirmed, it would only take ‘one more justice of the Roberts-Scalia-Thomas-Alito stripe to return the Court to’ so-called ‘jurisprudential respectability.’
"“And let’s not forget conservative stalwart Pat Buchanan, who denounced the Miers nomination as revealing the President’s lack of desire ‘to engage the Senate in fierce combat to carry out his now-suspect commitment to remake the Court in the image of Scalia and Thomas.’ Apparently Buchanan believes that the Alito nomination demonstrates the President’s change of heart. He heralded the nomination as one that would unite and rally the base.
"“They say you can tell a lot by a person’s friends. These three individuals are consistently on the furthest edge of the ideological spectrum. Their positions rarely advance the interests of average Americans."
Hahahahahahahahahahaha. Can you imagine being the woman he married for her money? HAhahahahahaha. Money can't buy you hapiness. It buys you John Kerry.
