Liberal insanity typified

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter wants to advance William Myers (blocked by Senate Democrat filibusters last year) to the floor of the senate because he thought him the best chance to get 60 votes. Always the "bipartisan" chap, Specter was allured by the bait-and-switch tactics used by liberal Democrat Ken Salazar last year to win a Senate seat from the pale "Red" state of Colorado. As state attorney general, Salazar strongly endorsed Idaho lawyer Myers for the heavily liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

As a senator, Salazar joined Democratic colleagues asking Bush to withdraw Myers's name. So ol' Sal liked Myers, until he realized that Bush did too. And what are today's Democrats saying? "Anything that Bush is for, we're against!" It seems that Salazar was enthusiastic about Myers, until ol' Sal was sucked into the national Democratic Party abyss that blows common sense all to hell, once in Washington. Careful, Sal...look what it did to Little Tommy Daschle!

This is a "Ken Salazar for Senate 2010" campaign commercial, a la John Kerry: "I actually did vote for William Myers...before I voted against him!"
