Rush Limbaugh: Alito Attacks Boomerang on Cro-Magnon Democrats ^ | 1/12/06 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 01/12/2006 6:17:07 PM PST by wagglebee

RUSH: Of course we all know the circumstances surrounding Mrs. Alito leaving the hearing room in tears yesterday. You know what the laugher about this one is? The AP, the Associated Press, the first story crossing the wires tried to blame "Vice President" Lindsey Graham for this. They tried to blame the Republicans for making Ms. Alito cry. Anybody with a brain -- half a brain, a quarter of a brain -- watching these things understood what was going on with all this yesterday. We'll have the audiotape of that incident here. A very emotional time, by the way, in the Senate judiciary committee hearing, but the guy's going to be confirmed. The Democrats are unable to stop him, they have been unable to compete with him on substance, on jurisprudence, so this is all about manufacturing conspiracy charges and all these horrible things. The CAP thing, the Committed Alumni of Princeton blew up on Ted Kennedy yesterday like we hoped that cigar once had blown up in Fidel Castro's face -- another botched CIA operation, by the way, back during the Kennedy presidency.

When I found out what this group was -- and I've known on the periphery what this group was -- but when I saw that Bill Rusher was part of this group -- Bill Rusher is a friend of mine. Bill Rusher was a former publisher of National Review. He's 82 years old. He lives out in San Francisco now. He's retired, but still active, and I'll tell you what this group was. This group was an early forerunner to those who were fighting affirmative action. Whatever this group was about, they were not trying to deny admissions to anybody at Princeton. What they were trying to do was keep Princeton from lowering standards so as to meet quotas of various assigned minorities. Pure and simple. Kennedy has not had the decency to apologize about that. He wanted to take the Senate into executive session, big stunt, try and make it look like there was something sinister in Alito's past. So Bill Rusher said, "Well, I haven't even looked at these records from 30 years ago. Go ahead and look at them. I hope Senator Kennedy finds something in here entertaining." There's not one mention of Alito in them. Nothing there. It's a total bust and we said it was going to be yesterday, but the worst thing, or not the worst, but one of the secondarily bad things about this is that they attempted to once again mischaracterize people who are oriented and promoting excellence, mischaracterize them as bigots and as racists and so forth, and sexists.

They try and portray this group as people who didn't want any people of color or women amongst them and they thought that they're inferior, and they didn't want to have anything to do with that, which is what the left's comic book version of what a conservative is. That's the template version, and that's not what this group was. This is no different, what this group was doing, than people have said, "No, we're not going to lower the standards to pass the test to be a firefighter, because we're not going to end up with the best firefighters we can get."
But we had to do that. We had to change the way firefighter tests, the physical aspects were taken, so as to allow women to join fire departments, and there was a huge debate about that. The same thing about women in combat: you have to lower training standards in order to get them to qualify. That's all this group was about. And then if you look -- and I mentioned this both days on this program. Ted Kennedy, a member of the Owl Club himself at Harvard. Do you know what the Owl Club was? Exactly what he was trying to make people think that CAP was at Princeton, a bunch of rich white kids who only wanted to associate with themselves, and you had to have certain financial requirements and certain legacies like that to even become a member of this club. It was very private, very exclusive. If the enema that Sam Alito and his family have been given this week were turned on Senator Kennedy and some of these other senators on the Democrat side, I shutter to think. We would need laxatives, folks, and you know how irritating those are. So I look at these guys and I see an enema; I see laxatives, and I see irritation.

That's what they have become to me. But they're sealing their own fate. They're sealing their own doom. You look at the Democrat websites yesterday, and they're all excited Mrs. Alito broke down in tears. They're excited this happened. They don't care. I sometimes wonder if they really don't care about winning or if they're just so fed up they just want their hate constantly articulated by the people that they vote for, because their hate is practically uncontainable now, and it's only going to get worse, because, I'll tell you. As I said in the Morning Update today, folks, in the old days, the Democrats, when they ran the show, we'd have had some exciting stuff rather than these horrid attempts to characterize a decent man as a bigot. We would have had pubic hairs on Coke cans. We would have the sexual harassment accusations. We would have had all kinds of lists of videotapes that he had rented from Blockbuster.

We would have had security guards bring in massive sacks of garbage that had been secured from Alito's homes over the course of his life, and they would pore through the garbage and they would find what he had been reading. Well, we got nothing, and look it, we heard that the left-wing kook base invested 15 million for television ads and special interest group work, and the Democrats blew up on them. Democrats didn't give them diddly-squat, for all they thought they were going to get, the Democrats let them down and now they can't get a refund. They can't get a refund on the money they have wasted on these Democrats. It's been a totally, not only wasteful exercise, it has hurt them even more than they realize, and that's quite a bit. They're not even really aware. Some of them still think they're winning. Some of them still (interruption). Oh, they do. Some say, "Oh, yeah, this is good! We're exposing these people." They think that Alito has been exposed. Whether he gets confirmed or not he's been exposed, and that's good because we need to know who conservatives are. I kid you not.


RUSH: Yesterday, I said that this was a seminal moment and a seminal week. Not only does the Democrats' politics of personal destruction playbook no longer work, it's now a boomerang. It now boomerangs on them. Senator Kennedy and the rest of these guys got sliced up with razor blades yesterday. They are bleeding, folks, because of the boomerang of their politics of personal destruction playbook. It has not been updated in 30 years. When you combine the hate-filled and despicable questions by Ted Kennedy and his band of thugs, with the intellectual command and obvious decency of Judge Alito, and then you throw in that very moving moment in which Mrs. Alito cried and left the hearing room, you had a political bomb that detonated and will scar the Democrat Party for a long while to come. There was shrapnel in that room yesterday afternoon when all of this blew up on these people. Let's just review this for a moment. What are the important things the hearing has taught us so far?
Number one: The president's conservative nominees to the court are intellectually outstanding; their judicial temperaments are first rate, and they are -- it seems to me by every account I can run into -- admirable human beings. They are people who have pursued excellence and they have achieved it, and it is on display. It is inspirational to watch, motivational to watch. It is on display, and it is clear that the intellectual firepower in this country when it comes to the judiciary and pretty much everything else now resides on the right. As I have been saying, the left has not had to engage in anything intellectual for so many years because they never had to debate anybody. Their opposition was never treated with any respect, never given any coverage, and so they got accustomed to just dominating by their existence. Whatever they said -- however ridiculous, however off the wall -- got repeated and amplified and became the law of the land or the conventional wisdom of the land. But no longer. And as we see, they are not prepared to compete intellectually. They think their best and brightest are on this judiciary committee, and it's an embarrassing bunch of arrogant, condescending fools. The Supreme Court nominee's grand inquisitor on ethics, of all things -- this is another thing we've learned -- is Edward Kennedy. Ted Kennedy! He is the grand inquisitor on ethics. I told you yesterday that Feinstein, she'll take on the feminist issues. Today she tried to make hay out of the National Security Administration spy scandal again. Durbin will take on torture. What's his name, Schumer will take on abortion. Leahy will take up, you know, whatever he read under the apple tree up in Vermont this summer. But it is Ted Kennedy. Ted Kennedy somehow ends up choosing, selecting, or being assigned the Democrats' grand inquisitor role on ethics, of all things. Ted Kennedy, if you ask me, ranks as one of the most despicable people in political life. Think about it, folks.

The Democrats chief attack dog on this committee is a man who is responsible for the death of a woman he was on his way to having an affair with at Chappaquiddick -- and, no, you can't repeat this too often. He failed to report the drowning of Mary Jo Kopechne until after it was discovered ten hours later -- and no writer who has seriously studied the events at Chappaquiddick and the ten hours that took place after the accident has believed Kennedy's account of it. Nobody ever has. You have to ask yourself: What universe do these people live in? I can answer it. They live in the universe where nobody... How do I describe it? They live in the universe of arrogance. They live in the universe where people don't remember these things; people don't think of them. They live in a universe where they are totally unaware that there is an alternative media that is not permitting them to get away with the same old same old any longer. Another thing we are learning -- and it's on vivid display -- is liberalism is intellectually exhausted.

It's not over with, and I'm not saying it is dead. Don't misunderstand. I'm saying it is intellectually exhausted. The reason Ted Kennedy is going after these nonexistent ethics issues is because he and his clownish colleagues were beaten like a drum on matters of judicial philosophy. They have been beaten by every nominee. John Roberts. Bill Pryor. You name it. Janice Rogers Brown. They have been beaten intellectually by every Bush nominee. They are being embarrassed, and they do know it. When they get to their cloakrooms and they discuss these things with themselves, they know. They know Alito was going to be confirmed after the first day. They know Alito was going to be confirmed before the first day. They know that they have not done well. They know that their tactics don't work. But they should have learned that the last five years and they don't.
When their tactics don't work they simply redouble the same tactics. They shout them louder. They make more wild accusations. They don't learn from this. But they do know that they are being embarrassed, and because they knew they were being embarrassed, they had to change the channel. They had to try to change the subject. But in changing the channel, they've revealed their true modus operandi, to try to grind really fine people to dust, to employ ugly tactics in an effort to smear the name of a really good man, destroy his reputation, destroy his career, and destroy his life. That's all they can do, because they can't compete with this man intellectually. They can't hold his coats. They can't. They can't lick his shoes. They're not fit to lick Sam Alito's shoes, and I think that the arrogance in the Democrats allowed them to miss something. I think what Senator Kennedy and the others didn't anticipate is that Judge Alito would not fold. They thought he'd cave, because he's a conservative.

"He's a phony. He's really a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, and if we could just get to the bottom of this and shake him up and make him admit it, we're home free!" They really do believe that about Alito, and that was their job to bring that out. So they can't compete well intellectually, didn't anticipate that he wouldn't fold -- and of course they didn't anticipate his wife's very human and moving reaction of tears in the hearing room -- and make no mistake, folks, that touched the heart of tens of millions of Americans, and it's not being reported, but you don't know how outraged over that people are. You don't know. The AP and all these liberal groups can try to sit there and say it was Lindsey Graham that made this happen, and that just infuriates people more, because you can't insult people's intelligence anymore like this. The AP doesn't get it. These guys, I tell you, they have no idea. That's why I say there were razor blades in this boomerang. There was shrapnel in the bomb that they threw yesterday, and they are the ones bleeding. We conservatives are going to win this debate hands down, and we are going to emerge both proud and energized and impassioned by it.

The liberals, folks, they are like an angry animal that's dying and desperate, and in the process of that they're prone to making terrible mistakes. They've succeeded... Talk about intellectual? I don't understand it. I can't be made to understand how they can put Ted Kennedy -- an old, bitter, enraged, hateful, burned-out left-wing corrupt Ted Kennedy -- as the face of the Democratic Party. But they do! They think it's a winner. For what? For fund-raising? To continue to keep the hate in their party ramped up, maybe, but for winning anything? Did you see the way Kennedy looked when he showed up today? He looked like he came straight from the bar. Things are not well with this bunch, folks. You can talk about all these people in the Democratic Party, but I think the one person perhaps more harmful to the Democrats than Howard Dean is Teddy Kennedy. It's been a revealing week. It has been a really, really good week. Liberalism has been unmasked big time, one more time -- and it'll happen again, and again, and again, this time in a very large stage. The anger we all feel for the injustice that Sam Alito had to endure will be vindicated when he becomes the 110th justice to the Supreme Court. He's going to serve his country and the conservative cause with honor, and Ted Kennedy will continue to sear into the American imagination the fact that he's one of the most odious, offensive, and out-of-place. It's over, sir, for you men in public life.

RUSH: What do you think the biggest news coming out of the Alito hearings is, Mr. Snerdley? What do you think the biggest news coming out of the hearings is? (interruption) It's not that he will be confirmed. It's not that he's going to be confirmed. That's not the big news. (interruption) I know. (interruption) It's not a trick question. There's a myriad possibilities here. I just (interruption). All right, I'll tell you. I'll tell you what I think the biggest news coming out of the Alito hearings is. I think it's beginning to sink in to the liberals and the Democrats, I think they are starting to realize -- I was mistaken, by the way; I theorized this would happen earlier, but I think they are starting now to realize that they are no longer in control. I think for five years, they have really believed they still can run the show using their old tactics. They can't stop Bush from doing a lot, but they can try to get Bush in trouble. I think what's happening this week is cementing the notion that they are really starting to get it. The liberal crowd, those who think of themselves as the best and the brightest, the smartest guys and gals in the room, are finally starting to get it.

They are not the majority. They can't stop these nominees. They are not in control. They can't do their filibuster. The votes are not there. I think they're starting to understand, they do not speak for America. Look at it this week. Ted Kennedy has talked about the public outcry over the spy scandal. There is no public outcry over the spy scandal. There's none. There's no public outcry over this congressional scandal, by the way. If you look at the polling data on that, there's no public outcry over that yet. There may be. We don't know. But if there is a public outcry over it at some point it's going to ensnare some Democrats, too -- and they live in this dream world where not only was it Lindsey Graham who caused Mrs. Alito to cry and leave, that this whole thing is a Republican scandal. But I think they secretly know that's not the case. It's starting to sink in to the liberal minority that they are a minority. Now, I don't expect that we will ever see them act that way, don't misunderstand what I'm saying, but they can't keep losing. This court thing, folks. For all the talk about the security and the NSA thing and the Abu Ghraib and all, that's nothing compared to what this means to them, and that's why they have lost it and become unhinged, because this court is about to become a 6-3 court. The Roberts court is going to become a 6-3 court. It isn't going to be a 5-4 court. It may be on a couple of issues. Obviously it will. But the Roberts court will become a 6-3 court, and then you know what happens when liberals are on the losing side of things, ah, it's not any fun. What will Ruth "Buzzi" Ginsburg do? What will John Paul Stevens do? What will Breyer do? What will Souter do? What will they do? Are they going to want to hang around and be on the losing side of every case, or a majority of cases? What are they going to do? What are they going to do when their quest to look to foreign law blows up on them, because Alito's dealt with that just like John Roberts did in his hearings. It isn't going to happen.

Combine these guys with Scalia and Clarence Thomas. There will be another nominee, is my point, and they will lose that. They are going to lose that. When I'm thinking about this, I have a vision. How many of you saw "2001: Space Odyssey"? Remember nobody could figure it out. You watched the beginning of the movie and nobody could figure out what it is. It starts out with some prehistoric age with a bunch of Neanderthals running around picking up bones and rocks and stones, and they try to, you know, peacefully co-exist, you know, fighting over the Butts sisters, and they try to peacefully co-exist out there. But one of them is an antagonist, the protagonist. Ends up all hell breaks out, and this guy gets the heck beat out of him by another Cro-Magnon or whatever with a rock. "Ugh, ugh, ugh," and then a black obelisk shows up out of nowhere.

"What the hell is the black obelisk?"
Then in the follow-ups it shows up on the moon. All this Stanley Kubrick stuff, you can't figure out what it means. Well, I think the liberals are the apes. They have been visited by a black obelisk. The black obelisk is the symbol of wisdom, and shazam! The apes realize that rocks could be used as tools, and so they're still out there throwing rocks. But we are the wisdom and the hope and the optimism of the black obelisk, and they can throw all those rocks at the black obelisk they want, and they just bounce right off, and they're bouncing off with such force that they're coming back and beaning the very people throwing them. Just if you want to know who the liberals in this country are today, go rent it if you haven't, or go buy it so you don't have to take the movie back. It's worth keeping. I never rent movies. You have to take them back. It's a time-value thing. Go rent it. Look at it, if you haven't seen the opening. That's all you have to watch if you don't want to watch the whole thing. But you will watch the modern-day Democrat liberal trying to function in a modern world with his old-fashioned behavioral techniques. No doubt about it. Here's Chip, a cell call from Cleveland. You're up first. Welcome to the EIB Network. Nice to have you with us.

CALLER: Thank you, Rush. Mega dittos, and happy birthday from Cleveland.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: I'm calling because, looking ahead in the future, just think if like a Ginsburg were to retire. What do you think would happen? Do you think they would keep the same playbook, the Dems, keep the same playbook? Because if they do, you know, W might come in and have even a more conservative judge to appoint.

RUSH: I hope he does. I don't know how he could, though, Roberts and Alito are pretty much... There's still a lot of great candidates he could choose from out there, folks. Michael Luttig would be fabulous. Janice Rogers Brown. I mean that would be the pièce de résistance after all this, but you ask, would they use the same playbook. Let me ask you, what other playbook do they have?

CALLER: There is no other playbook --

RUSH: Okay, right. So you answered your own question. What are they going to do?

CALLER: Well, that's the thing I don't understand this week, because if they continue to do this, and they win the '06 elections and they retain the House and Senate it's just going to get uglier for them, and it's going to be a 7-2 court.

RUSH: You know, look, you and I can look at this and see it plain as day. We can see it clearly. They can't. If they thought this was hurting them, they would stop it. You have to look at how they define success. I think they have a different definition of achievement than we do. Our objective is to put the finest intellectual people we can on the Supreme Court. Their objective in this is to stop this person, but then there's something else. They've got a pack of rabid dogs out there that are their contributors and supporters, and these people are filled with rage and hate, and they are willing to spend gazillions of dollars investing in people who will articulate this rage and hate -- and so, yeah, they may not have stopped Alito, but on the surface they kept their kooks happy. But have they? Is People for the Liberal Way happy about the outcome here? Do you think that ultimately, when this all is over, is going to be happy about this? Are they going to be satisfied with the hate-filled rhetoric of Senator Kennedy yesterday?

For a while, but then they're going to start asking, "What good is our money here?" and they're not going to ask themselves the seminal question: "What's wrong with us?" They will not say, "What's wrong with our idea?" because they are arrogant. There's nothing wrong with their ideas. It's just that things are being stolen from them on Election Day or you are stupid and simply don't understand just how brilliant they are and what they offer the country. It's not just these committee Democrats that start to have to ask these questions. It's It's these left-wing fringe groups. It's People for the Liberal Way. It's the NAGs. Is membership in any of these groups growing? Probably not. But you have these people who will do the same thing these other Democrats are doing, they will not examine what's wrong with them. They'll try to change tactics, but more than likely the people that contribute to these people will get on their case, say, "You know, you're not spending our money. You're not worth our investment. This guy could have been stopped. Everybody knows he's a bigot. You blew the Princeton thing. You didn't go about it the right way."
Remember, they still think that the nature of the evidence in any of this is irrelevant. It's the seriousness of the charge. It's how their playbook is 30 years old behind the times. They simply think all they have to do is say this guy sexually harassed Anita Hill, or this guy didn't want blacks and women at the same university he was going to, and, bammo, he's disqualified. They still think that those kinds of accusations have power. There's nothing else in their playbook. Do you see them saying, "You know what, I think Ted Kennedy is the wrong spokesman for us." Do you see them saying that? I don't. Do you see them saying, "I don't think that this Durbin guy is actually who we want carrying our water"? Are they going to say this? And what control over it do they have, anyway? Look, don't misunderstand. I'm not saying it's over for these people, because politics -- there is another party that can screw up, too. Big time. Sometimes people will put the out-of-power party in power just because they get so fed up with the people in power. You know, the incumbency fatigue.

I'm just telling you as an intellectual exercise, as an intellectual pursuit, as a force of dominance, liberalism is on the wane. Yeah, they still have academe. Yeah, they still have some of these cultural institutions. They still have Hollywood. But let me ask you a question. We're going to have the Academy Awards. When are they? February or March, and Jon Stewart's going to be the host. How many of us are really going to watch, especially when we find out that Brokeback Mountain is going to win everything? Really, how many of us are going to watch? So Hollywood is doing the same thing the left is doing: "Oh, you don't like what we're doing? Well, here is more of it until you like it! Open wide," and they're trying to stuff it all down our throats, and they know what makes money, and they refuse to do it if it doesn't fit their ideology out there. Yeah, they still control these cultural institutions. But they used to control a lot more. All I'm saying is there is progress galore being made. It's been on the march here for 40 or 50 years, and it's going to keep on marching, and as an intellectual pursuit, the days of liberalism being able to automatically sway massive public opinion -- ask Dan Rather -- are over.


RUSH: Proving once again the independence of my staff -- and to show my utter professionalism, by the way -- all during the most recent 15 or 20 minutes of the program, when I have been describing to you what I think is the implosion of the Democrats, their realization that it's over for them, that they're no longer it is dominant influence, driving force ideologically in America anymore, and not dead yet, but, you know, it's waning and there's no end in site for it because they don't have what it takes to fix themselves, Snerdley is giving me these stares of incredulity in there like I am the biggest idiot and what happened to me on my birthday. "Did I lose the other half of my brain?" He's looking at me like this. But I'm thinking he can't possibly be disagreeing with me because this is so brilliant, it makes so much sense. So I'm thinking, "Well, Brian's moving around in there like something's wrong. Do we got a technical problem that I don't know about?"

None of this distracted me, but I noticed it all. So during the break I said, "Snerdley, what's your problem? We have a technical in there?"


"You just think I'm totally wrong?"


So I asked him to explain. "How am I totally wrong about this?"

He said, "What if they take your advice, and what if they drop all this personal attack stuff and just get back on their message?"

"Fine, let 'em. What is their message?"

"Well, the message is the little guy doesn't stand a choice in the American court system, and the little guy doesn't stand a chance in life."

I said, "Let 'em do that. That's the whole point of a representative republic and freedom."
I will tell you people a little story. I went to Afghanistan in February, and went with Mary Matalin. We were watching the first season of 24, 16 hours straight on the way over to Dubai, and before we started, because actually we didn't start the DVDs for an hour, so we're talking about the Democratic Party and where they're going and what they've gotta do, and I said, "To me it's real simple. They have to do what we did."

"What do you mean?"

"Look, Mary, 50 years ago, conservatism began to articulate what it believes, and it stuck with it, and it had people working in the basements in obscurity and anonymity and they were producing brilliance, and that brilliance slowly found its way to other people in the country, and they absorbed it, and finally people in the media who had been raised and had been educated with these principles and beliefs found their way to reach massive numbers of people, such as this program, and the whole thing just spread like a snowball -- and through it all, we were losing. We got humiliated in 1964 with Barry Goldwater. We didn't get Reagan in '76. We had the embarrassment of Nixon and Watergate. We had Jimmy Carter. But we stuck with it. The stuff that goes back and predates us to the forties and early fifties. We finally got Reagan in the 1980s, and what did we do the whole time?

"'Here's what we believe. Here's who we are,' and we went out, and we engaged in a battle for the minds and hearts of the American people. The libs are going to have to do the same thing. They're going to have to go convince people of what they actually believe -- and they can't do it."

"Well," she said, "They can't do that. They can't be honest about what they believe."

I said, "They may think so, but they have no other chance. The days of being able to fool people about who they are, are over. They're not going to be able to fool people anymore. They're not going to be able to make people believe they're the big, sensitive, compassionate types when they seek nothing other than personal destruction of their enemies. They can't do it. They're going to have to go out and make the case for tax cuts. They're going to have to go out and make the case for abortion. They're going to have to go out and make the case for partial-birth abortion. They're going to have to go out and make the case for affirmative action and quotas and hiring less qualified people and more qualified people don't get to work because that's fairness. They're going to have to go out and make their arguments about public education must remain average and mediocre in poor black neighborhoods in order to protect our union members. They're going to have to go convince people that this is the best for America."

Now, you're saying, but they can't! You never know, folks! Go back to 1940 or '50. Everybody told the dinosaurs of our leadership back then, "You think you can beat these liberals? You think you can beat FDR? You think you can convince people that the welfare state is not good for them, that the war on poverty is not something really great and testimonial about how great this country is? You go try it."

Well, they did. Now, I know that what the liberals have to sell is anathema. But that's how you do it. You go out and you create voters that are going to vote for you so that when you're elected you have a mandate. Even after they get elected they don't have a mandate because they haven't stood for anything or the things they say they stand for they really don't. They're liars. They live in an era of deceit. Their motto is: "How can we fool 'em today?" Their success stories are Bill Clinton, semen-stained dresses, being found in contempt of court for lying in a grand jury deposition. And that's what they think is great. But the only chance they have is to be honest because it ain't working this way.

This will go down as one of Rush's all time classics.

Absolutely! I was trying hard not to laugh because he was nailing them down on every point!

I particularly liked his 2001:A Space Odyssey analogy, because it was spot on!

I haven't listened to Rush in a long time, but I was smiling throughout this read. It rings so true.

Brilliant analysis.

The biggest joke going is what a "moron" Rush Limbaugh is. What's an even bigger joke is how "stupid" the people who listen to him are.

He knows exactly what he's doing.

No it wasn't. The obelisk was the sign of a great leap forward in evolution. Compare it with the Apes and Dave.

Ted Kennedy, if you ask me, ranks as one of the most despicable people in political life. Think about it, folks.

I don't think Rush has a very good opinion of drunk fat ted. It matches my own.

It wasn't about who Alito was, it is about who the Democratic Senators are...a Vile , spiteful, self-serving , harsh group of people. It sure shows in those pictures....and it ain't pretty.

I would like Rush to play that old song "In My Merry Oldsmobile" over Sinator(sic) Teddy talking.

The hearings reminded me of the McCarthy hearings, with Kennedy playing the part of Joe.

"He's a phony. He's really a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, and if we could just get to the bottom of this and shake him up and make him admit it, we're home free!" They really do believe that about Alito, and that was their job to bring that out.

No, the Democrat Senators don't really believe that. But the types do, and the Democrats have to keep those voters to have any chance at all in future elections. Thus, the Cro-Magnons were playing to keep that group pacified - a high-risk strategy that counts on swing voters being too detached from politics to remember any of this in November.

Can't argue with El Rushbo. But the Maharushie seems to have used Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon interchangeably. That's a no-no, Rush.He did add "or whatever" after Cro-magnon so perhaps he gets a pass.

All of this may well be true, except for spelling the the end of Demonrat success at the polls. Never underestimate the ignorance and stupidity of the Demonrat voter.And they are legion.

The success Democrats have are from having a voting block with a major financial interest through unions or government employment.
Democrats try to grow government employment and unions.
With taxpayer money they have also raised salaries and benefits above what is found in the private sector (WHICH I FIND CRIMINAL).
