John Kerry Obviously Reads this Blog

January 27, 2006

John Kerry obviously reads this blog and was swayed by Your Montag’s moving exhortation yesterday to invoke the puklear option and actually do something about the constitutional crisis we’re facing. So this post is made special, just for you, Senator.

Your Montag supports your efforts, Senator, to filibuster the Alito Supreme Court Nomination. Though I’m slightly disheartened that the leader of this charge is the same guy who once vowed not to concede the presidential election until all the votes had been counted, but quickly gave up the ghost saying:

“I would not give up this fight if there was a chance we could prevail. . . . There won’t be enough outstanding votes for us to be able to win Ohio, and therefore we cannot win this election.”

I am even more disheartened by the response, (the inexplicable, reflexive back-knifing response,) your filibuster effort has gotten from other Senate Democrats.

Minority Leader Harry Reid:

“No one can complain on this matter that there hasn’t been sufficient time to talk about Judge Alito, pro and con. . . . I hope that this matter will be resolved without too much more talking.”

Yeah. That’s real nice.

Go for it, Senator Kerry. Don’t let us down again. Go for it even if there aren’t enough votes to prevail. Go for it to let the record show which Senators lack the courage of their convictions.

    What’s the latest–8 Democrats are holding up the filibuster? Assuming these are all “Red State” Democrats, what do they have to lose by contesting Alito? They don’t have any real power, anyway. What, they might lose their seat in the White House cafeteria? Fuck ’em.

    I think they’re just lazy. That filibustering is a lot of work, you know! They must conserve their energy for their naps.

    They could be sleeping with the enemy. The GOP could go to them and say “we won’t fund your challenger’s campaign next time around…” (Stuff like that.)
