These clowns would be funny if they weren't so dangerous. They have no problem with a Ginsburg, former lawyer for the ACLU/NAMBLA/ MAN BOY LOVE, but these upstanding citizens they try to tear down and mind you I am Pro-Choice (first three months)
Red State traces the document back to the DNC – and also finds the document was originally titled “how they made their $$, personal holdings, the whole deal”
Now, this is interesting - because even Tip O'Neil's flack (Chris Matthews) thinks it's not only bad politics - it's just offensive.
Despite the Democrat's attempt to make this document "Not for attribution" - let's go ahead and attribute it, shall we? Because the technical wizards at the Democratic National Committee never got the "don't forward Word documents" memo. You can download the document here.
HOST: we’ll have it live as soon as it begins. Wait for that, more on the nomination of Samuel Alito is chris matthews. Of course, conservatives extremely happy.
HOST: Let’s cut to the chase. Do you think we’ll see a filibuster?
MATTHEWS: I don’t know. I think the democrats, i’m sitting here holding in my hands a disgusting document, put out not for at try bution. the democrats are circulating it. it’s a complaint sheet against judge alito’s nomination. the first thing they nail is he failed to win a mob conviction in 1988. they nail him on not putting italian mobsters in jail. why would they bring this up? this is either a very bad coincidence or very bad politics. either way it will hurt them. this document, not abortion rights, not civil rights but that he failed to nail some mobsters in 1988. this is the top of their list. amazingly bad politics. .
HOST: why not attack him if you are a liberal, why not openly say we fear for abortion rights?
MATTHEWS: i have to ask that. why did they put this document out. this will hurt the democrats. they shouldn’t go after ethnicity. as a prosecutor, a judge, a yale law grad. i don’t understand this kind of politics. unless they have someone who nut on the top of 20 items. the guy being than i talian american not nail a conviction in 17 years ago? interesting.
HOST: what you have in your hand, who signed it?
MATTHEWS: i was given it by one of the producers of nbc, called democrats are circulating this document. they are trying not to put a signature on it. it’s from them.
HOST: and is it a good move for president bush to have this nomination come on the first weekday after scooter libby indicted and resigned?
MATTHEWS: i think they had this list honed. they were going through a favorite list, probably a couple more in line behind him. they have been in this process for a long time. they knew the judges in the supreme court were getting on in years and they would have an opening and roberts did well and this one is of the same quality perhaps. we’ll see what the issues will be raised by the democrats. i think it will be an interesting fight. does it trigger extraordinary by the gang of 14? there it be a filibuster? the subquestion isl the 14 hang together and make sure there is a vote here? the republicans are in the mood for a nuclear option here.
HOST: you and i have discussed this before, whether a woman would have been nominated. his own wife said she would prefer to have a woman. sandra day o’connor has also been vocal about it. what will be fall-out be?
MATTHEWS: i think there’s a lot of phoniness about trying to find balance on the court. why not have gender balance. so many him like yourself coming out of the best law schools. you know going through harvard just as many women as men are coming out. why wouldn’t you go for them if you are looking for young talent? i assume the law firms are doing the same. they went for harriet miers, not top of the class and now they figured we tried. that’s enough. a lot of phoneiness about gender balance here.
