According to senate minority leader Harry Reid and his friends, democrats must block the constitutional appointment process in order to protect you from right-wing radical judges. They say they use the filibuster only in the most extreme situations, to block confirmation of extremely dangerous radicals to the bench for sake of all mankind.
Heroes they are really, at least in their own minds
I can almost see their point too. Who would want some extreme right-wing wacko deciding justice in America? I mean, what if judges actually just stuck to the written law and constitution and applied them to cases without any re-draft from their own personal agenda? Can you imagine what chaos it might cause if our judges left all the legislating to our legislature? Who would single handedly thwart the will of the masses if not a judge?
In order to understand what Mr. Reid and his friends mean by this assertion, we must first understand what they mean by right-wing radical.
Lets begin with the simple stuff. If you believe Teddy Kennedy is a drunken coward who should have gone to prison for leaving his girl friend to die in the icy waters of Chappaquiddick as he ran and hid from authorities, you are right. But if you believe this voids his credibility as a national leader, you are a right-wing radical and you are sadly mistaken.
If you believe Bill Clinton should have done more to protect this nation by strengthening the military and our intelligence community rather than destroying them while he focused his attention on using the White House as a personal play-pen, you are right again. But if you believe America was weakened by Larry Flint Lite living in the White House, you are a right-wing radical.
If you believe John Kerry should have produced real evidence to support his claim of war hero status instead of simply attacking the honor of decorated veterans and POWs who called him a traitor, you are once again right. But if you think America should reject a traitor for President, you are a right-wing radical.
Now for the basics - If you believe that the taking of innocent life for the sole purpose of personal convenience, not in self defense, is murder and therefore, not a constitutional right, you are correct. Just look it up under murder. But if you believe you have the right to call murder by its name, you are a right-wing radical.
If you believe that Americas greatness is a result of freedom instead of free-stuff, you are an evil rich selfish snob who happens to be right. But if you believe you have a right to your own earnings, a right to determine your own financial future, a right to work harder or smarter and receive the fruits of your labor and sacrifices or that you even have a right to risk failure in pursuit of your own happiness, you are a right-wing radical.
If you still believe America is the land of the free and home of the brave, that Americas strength rests upon the inner strength of its people and that it is threatened by a growing internal weakness among its masses, you are a right-wing radical.
If you believe that morals matter and that every action has a natural inescapable well deserved consequence, then you are brilliant - and you are a right-wing radical.
If you believe that judges should read laws not write them, you are a genius by todays standards and you too are a right-wing radical.
If you believe that freedom of religion does not mean freedom from religion and that freedom of religious speech does not include Jim Jones, David Koresh or Muslim extremist who preach killing innocent people as the center-piece of their doctrine, then you are highly intelligent and you my friend, are a right-wing radical.
So see, if you said yes to one or more of these qualifications, you are exactly the kind of extremist the democrats are trying to save this nation from. You are a right-wing wacko extremist whom this nation will no longer tolerate.
If you believe in the concept of right and wrong, good and evil, self-reliance and self-governance, the constitution as it was written, personal responsibility, the rights endowed by our creator as established in the Declaration of Independence, then you are no longer part of the mainstream in America, according to todays democrats.
You must be stopped from running roughshod over the masses, who have adopted the ideals of mainstream Americans like Teddy Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Franks, John Kerry, Hillary, Al Gore, Michael Moore, Larry Flint, Alec Baldwin, Howard Dean, Babs, Whoopi, Franken and Soros.
Old democrats like Joe Lieberman or Zell Miller must be sidelined because they too, can say yes to most if not all of these qualifications. By todays standards, that makes them just as dangerous to the DNC agenda as all you right-wing wackos.
You are an extremist, a right-wing ideologue, and here is the latest class title for people like you, an absolutist. You are in the eyes of the mainstream, simple minded, but no less certain about the difference between right and wrong and as a result, you are dangerous.
As such, you are no longer welcome in America. You represent a larger threat to America than Bin Laden, Hitler, Stalin and Marx combined, according to democrats.
So you must realize that it is vital to keep people like you off the bench. So vital to Americas future, that democrats must be allowed to filibuster the constitutional appointment process in order to save America from right-wing radicals like you.
If you were a hard core card carrying socialist, you would already know all of this. Since you are a right-wing wacko, I figured I better explain it to you in terms you can understand.
Your ideas harm the progressive agenda of an open society where all are equal, and I do mean all. How dare you think that America should be the best country on earth? America should be just like every other country on earth, equally poor, equally tyrannized by its government and equally miserable. As long as were not, we will not be appreciated in the world community and whats more important than that?
If you believe the founders got it all wrong, that America is one big feeding trough for the world, that the UN is more trustworthy than the US, that our weaknesses are our strengths and that only democrats can save you from yourself, you are NOT a right-wing extremist.
If your idea of national security is negotiating away your freedom to avoid a fight, you could never be a right-wing extremist - you just dont have what it takes.
But you can pass the DNC litmus test and you my friend, can be a judge No filibuster for you!

I have another one
If you believe the impeachment of Bill Clinton was about lying under oath you are right. But if you think he should have been removed from office for sexually harrassing Paula Jones, perjury and tampering with evidence you are a right wing radical.
That just about sums it up, don't it?
Well done. I must be a right-wing-whacko. I don't think there is a single thing in this article, I disagree with.
gah... if only I had been conducting that interview...
"That depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is."
"Sonny Jim, 'IS' means 'extant, real, or ongoing (if used in a compound verb)', being the third-person present (imperfect) form of the verb 'to be'. Got that? Good. Now... this IS a ball-peen hammer, each one of those ten little things sticking out of your feet IS a toe, and a memorable percussive introduction of these dissimilar objects IS your destiny if you try that dodge one more time."
If you got up on voting day, took a shower, cleaned your house, got breakfast for your 4 kids, had them all pile into the car with you, waited in line for an hour, voted, because you felt it was the most important thing you could do for the sake of your country ,and for the future of your kids.!Expected President to appoint strict constructionist to the bench [IF WE WON]and still want him to be able to keep that pomise without a few wacky ,lefto, liberal socialists, blocking him every step of the way, I guess that makes you a right wing extremist also!
Bookmarked. Great piece!
. . . sexually harrassing quite a number of women including Paula Jones as well as raping at least a few woman including . . .
Thanks for posting that. It's always nice to discover a new source of information and great writing at the same time.
The word "extremist" seems to be in currency again of late for anyone to the right of Lenin, especially if he or she happens to be a candidate for a judicial appointment. When you cheapen words this way they cease to lose their punch first of all, then their very meaning.
Playing games with the kids tonight,reading, making dinner, doing laundry, getting ready for church tomorrow. OOOOppps sorry I said the ''CHURCH'' word. Guess I'm outted now as just another[ Right Wing Extremist, RADICAL!!! ]Gotta watch that!
You're just about the funniest FReeper "in the house," King Prout! I nearly sprayed my coffee all over the monitor screen when I read this bit above. Just hilarious! Keep 'em comin!
Thanks so much. You made my evening!
"I BELIEVE that if you can't say something nice about someone, you must be talking about Hillary Clinton!"
Yeah, what Charlite said.
bump for later
