The Doomed Senator from Pennsylvania
Some are suggesting we're trying to change the law, we're trying to break the rules. Remarkable. Remarkable hubris. I mean imagine, the rule has been in place for 214 years that this is the way we confirm judges. Broken by the other side two years ago, and the audacity of some members to stand up and say, "how dare you break this rule!" It's the equivalent of Adolf Hitler in 1942 "I'm in Paris. How dare you invade me. How dare you bomb my city? It's mine."Remarkable hubris? Hmm.. a saying about pots and kettles is at the tip of my tongue... Also, quite noteworthy is the rank hypocrisy of Sen. Santorum invoking Hitler within a few months of saying this about Sen. Robert Byrd's unfortunate Nazi reference:
"Senator Byrd's inappropriate remarks comparing his Republican colleagues with Nazis are inexcusable," Santorum said in a statement yesterday. "These comments lessen the credibility of the senator and the decorum of the Senate. He should retract his statement and ask for pardon."Risking the wrath of Quirk's Exception, I'll simply say this: It just doesn't pay to invoke the Hitler comparison. It may be apt or it may not. But it doesn't matter. No one in America will listen to you anymore once you say it.
I actually posted my first comment ever on another blog on this subject.
