So what is the latest manifestation of calcium deficiency in their spinal columns now? It has to do with how they plan to (NOT!) fight the Kagan nomination. Lifenews reveals that John Kyl, ranking Republican of the Senate Judiciary Committee is dismissing the tactic of filibuster in the Kagan case. Says the Senator, "The filibuster should be relegated to the extreme circumstances, and I don't think Elena Kagan represents that."
What is necessary, in their opinions, to qualify as "extreme circumstances"? Must the nominee in question be a reincarnation of Atila the Hun, or Adolf Hitler, or Joseph Stalin?
Ladies and gentlemen of the GOP, in case you haven't noticed, we are fighting for the soul of this country, if not civilization itself. We certainly are fighting for the babies being slaughtered by the thousands everyday in this country. Whether or not these seems like "extreme" statements, I defy any one of you to dispute the factual accuracy of them. Lose the "country-club, oh-so-genteel" veneer and realize the stakes involved here. If there is one thing you'd better learn from the Tea Party Movement, it's that the votes and support of conservatives can no longer be taken for granted; they must be earned. With this most irresponsible statement of John Kyl's, you have done much to alienate true conservatives. You'd better wake up and do your utmost to fight the Kagan nomination. We won't forget this November.
