Moderate GOP Senators slice the GOP hamstring

--posted by Tony Garcia on 5/23/2005

Today 14 Senators made a deal to avert the big showdown over judicial nominees. Of course, leading the way on the solution that will kill the GOP later was John "I left my backbone in Vietnam" McCain ("R"-AZ).
"We have reached an agreement to try to avert a crisis in the United States Senate and pull the institution back from a precipice," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., adding the deal was based on "trust, respect and mutual desire to .... protect the rights of the minority."

John, with all due respect (which is very little, to be honest) you are a hyperbole spewing moron. There was no "crisis in the United States Senate" to avoid. The instution was on the precipice of preventing the unprecedented (meaning never done before) filibustering of judicial nominees.

It gets 'deeper'.
"We have lifted ourselves above politics," agreed Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W. Va., "And we have signed this document....in the interest of freedom of speech, freedom of debate and freedom to dissent in the United States Senate.

OK, you lying sack-of ****, at no time was freedom of speech even close to be threatened. At no time was the ability to debate being threatened. (Remember, a filibuster is ONLY endless debate.) At no time was the freedom to dissent (which is done by casting a NO vote) going to be curtailed...in fact it was on the 'precipice' of being required.

I hate Senators. They are slimy, lying, two-faced, forked-toungue assholes.

With that in mind let us know explore the Democrats side of the deal. They will not filibuster three of the nominees now (Priscilla Owen, Janice Rogers Brown and William Pryor), but they still are able to filibuster two others (Henry Saad and William Myers).

Wait, it gets even stupider (on the part of the Republicans that made this deal).

The agreement said future judicial nominees should "only be filibustered under extraordinary circumstances." And guess who gets to decide when those "extraordianry circumstances" are. That's right, the same Democrats who already were blocking these nominees because the circumstances are extraordinary.

"Are you GOP Senators stupid or something?"
"Stupid is as stupid does."
"Then you must be extarordiarily stupid."

Here is what is going to happen. The Democrats will block any conservative that is appointed. I should say, they will filibuster any non-radical liberal that Bush appoints...especially if it is for the Supreme Court. Then the GOP Senators will say, "they breeched the agreement, we will change the filibuster rules." Then the Democrats will say, "these were extraordinary circumstances and therefore the deal was still in affect. The Republicans broke the deal." The media, in the pocket of the far left, will report the whole situation that way. The general public (moderates) will follow the pulp that the MSM prints on the issue and the GOP will lose twice: once in the public polls and once in losing their nominees in the long run.

Why will they change the rules and then still lose the nominees? Because of spineless Senators like McCain who will do anything they can to not lose favor of the MSM.

I don't know who to be more disgusted with. The Senate Democrats for being so slimy (this plan is so transparent that it is like a bad, predictable B-movie) or the Senate Republicans for being so retarded as to enter this deal.

*sigh* Someday there may be a real Republican majority. But those times aren't now.
