Stupid Things Liberals Say

This week’s “TheoLib” Award:
“John Roberts is a Roman Catholic. How important to him is his religion? Do you think it might affect him as a Supreme Court Justice?” –ABC’s Barbara Walters

Affirmative Action Court:
“In the end, it may take a president who looks more like Sandra Day O’Connor to pick a court that looks more like America, than tokenism. Just imagine what could happen if a woman president chose justices who looked like her.” –Susan Estrich

This week’s “Leftmedia Buster” Award:
“NPR’s Nina Totenberg, who last week tagged Supreme Court nominee John Roberts as ‘very, very conservative’ and ‘very, very, very conservative,’ on ‘Inside Washington’ over the weekend described him as merely ‘very conservative.’ But she couldn’t resist adding a modifier every time she applied the conservative label, also dubbing him ‘a really conservative guy,’ ‘a hard-line conservative’ and ‘a clear conservative.’ Plus, she emphasized how he’s ‘a conservative Catholic’.” –Brent Baker of the Media Research Center (who is not a liberal)

Is it Watergate yet?
“In the same summer in which Deep Throat has been identified, that remodeled phrase from Watergate keeps reappearing: What did the ‘fill-in-the-blank’ know and when did he know it?” –MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on the non-story story

From the Clintonista Media Sycophant Department:
“President Clinton, as you well know President Bush has been under fire recently because Karl Rove allegedly released the identity of a CIA agent to reporters. President Bush has said it’s a fire-able offense now if a crime was committed, but in your view is the ethical violation enough to warrant dismissal?” –NBC’s Katie Couric querying former Prevaricator-in-Chief Bill Clinton **Evidently, Katie considers Mr. Clinton a preeminent authority on presidential administration ethics!

This week’s “Sagacity” Award: “George Bush is not as clever as he thinks he is.” –Rep. Maxine Waters on John Roberts’ nomination
**”Maybe the President isn’t as clever as he thinks he is, but he’s still way more clever than Maxine Waters.” –Rich Galen++

From the “Separation of Powers” Department: “You wouldn’t run for the United States Senate or for governor or for anything else without answering people’s questions about what you believe. And I think the Supreme Court is no different.” –Sen. Evan Bayh failing to distinguish between how one is seated in the legislative versus the judicial branch ++

From the Litmus Test Files: “We simply want to determine if Judge Roberts is a mainstream thinker. … This is not, and let me emphasize that, this is not a game of ‘gotcha’ and document requests and in general, information requests are not an end, a goal to prove something. They’re a means to simply determining Justice Roberts’ judicial views. That’s all we want.” –Chuck Schumer

Hysterical Revisionism: “The President and his Right-wing Supreme Court think it is ‘okay’ to have the government take your house if they feel like putting a hotel where your house is.” –DNC Chairman Howard Dean, getting the facts as wrong as he usually does.

From the “Politically Challenged” Files: “At a time when Washington remains gripped in partisan warfare based on the Bush administration’s narrow and ideologically driven agenda, it’s a good time for Democrats to look beyond the Beltway and talk honestly with each other about what we should stand for. That will be the primary purpose of the DLC 2005 National Conversation.” –Democratic Leadership Council press release describing the group’s meeting this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio **Bad news when they need a focus group to figure out what they believe.++

“Now, I know the DLC has taken some shots from some within our party and that it has returned fire too. Well, I think it’s high time for a cease-fire, time for all Democrats to work together based on the fundamental values we all share.” –Hillary Rodham Clinton Rodham **Funny how empty a word “values” can be coming from a Clinton.
