Committee for Justice (CFJ) chairman C. Boyden Gray, which defends and promotes constitutionalist judicial nominees, today reacted to Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O Connor s retirement.So it is the Left (you know, the side funded entirely by "the pornography industry") that needs to "resist their natural impulse towards exaggeration"? That seems fair.
"We call on the Left to take a breath and resist their natural impulse towards exaggeration. We call on Democrats to resist the temptation to use their attack machine against a qualified nominee. All parties should withhold judgment until a fair and sober analysis has occurred.
"But we're familiar with the special interests on the other side and what is demanded by their financial backers the trial lawyers, the pornography industry, the teachers unions that want to block equal educational opportunity for the inner city. We know they will attack almost any non-liberal nominee in hysterical terms.
"We will be watching Senate Democrats and intend to link moderate and red states senators to their liberal Senate colleagues and outside groups. If Sens. Kennedy, Schumer, Durbin, Leahy, and Boxer attack, it will be Ben Nelson (Neb), Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln (Ark), Robert Byrd (WVa), Bill Nelson (Fla), Tom Carper (Del), Debbie Stabenow (Mich), Jeff Bingaman (NMex), Evan Bayh (Ind), Byron Dorgan (ND), Mary Landrieu (La), and Tim Johnson (SD) who will be held accountable."
It is also interesting to note that certain Democrats are going to be held personally responsible for whatever is said by other Democrats. That seems fair.
Oh, and did I mention that Boyden Gray, while serving as head of the Committee for Justice, is also serving as a "Supreme Court analyst" for Fox News? I guess that seems fair too.
