I saw a few seconds -- all I could stand -- of the insufferable Senate judical debate. Mark Dayton (D-Minn) was commenting on inflammatory statements ("The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior") that House Majority Leader, Tom Delay made about judges a few weeks ago. Dayton noted darkly that we should be concerned because Delay had previously been an exterminator.
It would have been a lame and tired as a joke; but Dayton seemed to be seriously concerned that Delay wants to actually exterminate liberal judges, in stead of, you know, impeach them. Compare Dayton's comment to the testmony of George Galloway that I previously commented on. Galloway forthrightly denied the charges against him, denounced the commitee for convicting him in advanced, accused the senators of supporting an illegal war. Irrespective one's opinion of Galloway, he openly expressed his views for all to hear.
If Dayton had half a brain he could come up with numerous arguments against Bush's judges and the nuclear option. Instead he must insinuate that his political enemies are latent murderers.
