Don't Forget The Kerry And Crew Filibuster

Think back to last year at this time and remember those looney liberals warning us how the country would fall apart if Judge Alito got confirmed. John Kerry was one of the leaders of the gang trying to filibuster the judge with the support of the town drunk and dunk Teddy. This even though Judge Alito was unanimously rated "well qualified" to fill the Associate Justice post by the American Bar Association. A description that will certainly never be used in the same breath as the name John Kerry or Teddy Kennedy.

At the time Kerry was trying to ingratiate himself with the donk party activists as he planned another pathetic presidential campaign. Well, he seems to have blown that with his recent bufoonery, but his pals need to learn a lesson also.

This memory from Kerry's page of pomposity.

“I support a filibuster of Judge Alito’s nomination. Judge Alito’s confirmation would be an ideological coup on the Supreme Court. We can’t afford to see the Court’s swing vote, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, replaced with a far-right ideologue like Samuel Alito.

“Judge Alito will take America backward, especially when it comes to civil rights and discrimination laws. His record speaks for itself. Rather than live up to the promise of ‘equal justice under the law,’ Judge Alito has consistently made it harder for Americans to have their day in court. He routinely defers to the power of the government, no matter how extreme. And he doesn’t believe women have a right to privacy that’s protected by the Constitution.

“The President has every right to nominate Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. It’s our right and our responsibility to oppose him vigorously and to fight against this radical upending of the Supreme Court.”

Remember all this when it comes time to vote next week. Remember how they tried to demean Alito's Italian ancestry. Remember how Kerry and crew have demeaned our troops, our nation and our values over and over and over again. Send the donks packing one more time.
