Skip to comments.Zell Miller Warns Fellow Dems for Axing Pickering

Democrats will pay a political price for their Borking of U.S. District Judge James Pickering of Mississippi. That warning comes not from President Bush, who was shamefully late in defending his nominee, but from Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga.
"The political repercussions are too obvious to ignore," Miller said a day after the Democrat-ruled Senate Judiciary Committee voted on party lines not to let the full Senate decide on elevating Pickering to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
You have to wonder how Judiciary kingpin Patrick "Leaky" Leahy of Vermont avoided being struck by lightning when he replied, "I don't look at judicial nominations through a political prism."
(Why did the 10 Dems refuse to give the Senate the choice of approving or rejecting the nominee? Notice how those who claim to be "pro-choice" are anti-choice on practically every issue?)
Miller said he was "very disappointed" by the defeat of Pickering, a "good and brave man."
"This action may very well elect a Republican governor in Mississippi and it will certainly make it even more difficult for Democratic candidates to be successful in the South," Miller said in a statement.
The committee Democrats' disgraceful smear of Pickering provides Miller the perfect opportunity to switch parties, as Republicans have been dreaming of. After all, the Dems couldn't have killed Pickering in committee if Sen. Jim Jeffords of Vermont hadn't left the GOP to become an "independent." It's about time to repay the favor and even the playing field.
P.S. To those NewsMax readers who have asked for the names of the anti-choice 10 on the Judiciary Committee (all Dems, of course): Leahy, Bush's chum Teddy "Ladykiller" Kennedy of Taxachusetts, White House wannabe Joe "Plagiarism" Biden of Delaware, Herbert Kohl of Wisconsin, Dianne Feinstein of California, Russell "Trash the Constitution" Feingold of Wisconsin, Charles Schumer of New York, Dick Durbin of Illinois, former Internet millionaire Maria "Can't Pay" Cantwell of Washington and White House wannabe John Edwards of North Carolina.
You got that right!!!! Stupid Buzz Dasshit has WAY underestimated the south. He'll learn in November.
Trent Lott has redefined the term "Spineless" on so many occassions I've become pretty cynical. I'll hold out and hope one more time...
Still, what's my alternative? Hillary 2004? *barf*
Pat "The Slime" Leahy of Vermont, Teddy "Ladykiller" Kennedy of Taxachusetts, Joe "Plagiarism" Biden of Delaware, Herbert "Baldy" Kohl of Wisconsin, Dianne "The Dyke" Feinstein of California, Russell "Trash the Constitution" Feingold of Wisconsin, Chuckie "The Knucklehead" Schumer of New York, Dick "Head" Durbin of Illinois, Maria "Can't Pay" Cantwell of Washington and John "The Slick" Edwards of North Carolina.
Funny how another 30 years have demonstrated that Spiro Agnew was absolutely correct about the "left"....... Well, he should have known, eh?!
Then there are the Middle-States bigots like Mikulski. If post-generational reverse deportation were lawful, she'd be the one I'd wish to be first in line.
