    Shows how little you know, sheesh. I thought you would have figured out by now that we had Stalin's DNA extracted, and had him grown in a tube in a top secret DNC funded Global Warming institute. We did alter his DNA just a tweak or two, you know got rid of the mustache, made him a little taller, gave him a new name....

    Yeh, I'd love to see the Repugs attack Sodomayor, and instantly lose every potential vote from Hispanic Americans. They are working on it, though.

Oh wait. Ted Kennedy made up all the lies he spewed from the Senate floor to discredit Bork. Everything that Kennedy said was proved latter to be lies but by then the Liberals got their way and the term Borked was born. So we need to keep our heads above the low level Kennedy set ans stick to the truth of her own record not to Bork her. No but to point out the facts and the truth before the unthinking Liberals ignore the truth and facts and rubber stamp her nomination because it's the Barack thing to do.
    Would you please substantiate your above allegations with evidence? I certainly would appreciate it. For example, what lies has she been telling? Upon what evidence do you base your conclusion that she's lying?

    What organizations that she has been a part of indicate she is a racist?

    What lies did Ted Kennedy make up that discredited Bork?

    It is tough to beat Democrats these days, who completely lack an ounce of integrity and are fine with just pandering to every minority out there through lies and victimization tactics.

    I don't think people have a long memory to remember stuff like this. I'm guessing that the majority of the Hispanic Americans are not watching the hearings or reading about the hearings and the treatment she has received from Sessions (talk about a jerk). I don't see that happening.

    I thought Lindsey Graham's questions about 9-11 and al Qaeda were weird. I thought his statement about how he doesn't like bully judges was obnoxious--just because she said she asked tough questions? These cases are addressing REAL people. I would like to think a judge would ask tough questions.

    I wonder what Graham thought of Rehnquist. I personally witnessed an oral argument where the attorney before the Supreme Court was having problems answering a question. Rehnquist got frustrated and yelled, "You're not answering the question!" The guy was so shocked, he sat down. Rehnquist yelled, "ARE YOU DONE, COUNSELOR?" I thought it made Rehnquist look like a complete a-hole.

    Republicans have forgotten how to "grill" someone. They could take a lesson from the Dems, and google "Bork".
    I agree. I saw them asking her some simple yes or no questions yesterday and instead of answering yes or no she made the long drawn out little speech. If that was me asking the questions I would be like "excuse me I didn't say give me a speech or book report to throw me off guard ,I asked a simple ****en question so please answer it."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
