Boucher: 'All's Well.' Swell.

I read an interview in the Richlands News-Press ("Boucher: SWVA economic future looks good") with our Congressman-for-life Rick Boucher with a high degree of bemusement. My thought as I read the piece was, "Does he live in the same Southwest Virginia I live in?

Let me summarize the interview:

Yeah. He's To Be Believed.

Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), a man who should be in prison today with somebody named Buck chasing his fat ass around the exercise yard for what he did to this employee of his but instead thinks of himself as being the grand duke of the Democratic Party, wants us to believe that Supreme Court Justice nominee Samuel Alito has no credibility.

Right.

A letter to the editor appearing in today's Washington Post:
Alito's Credibility Problem
By Edward M. Kennedy

Every Supreme Court nominee bears a heavy burden to demonstrate that he or she is committed to the constitutional principles that have been vital in advancing fairness, decency and equal opportunity in our society. As Judge Samuel Alito approaches his confirmation hearings next week, the more we learn about him, the more questions we have about the credibility of his assurances to us. (link)
I was going to post an opposing view but, as a famous jounalist often writes with regard to Kennedy,
Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.

Prominent Dem Worries That We Might Win

Byron York, writing for National Review Online, has a fascinating quote from one of the many Democrats who are hoping we lose the war on terror. Congressman John Murtha (D-Retirement Village, PA) is worried ... that we might win:
"A year ago, I said we can't win this militarily, and I got all kinds of criticism." Now, Murtha told the strongly antiwar audience, "I worry about a slow withdrawal which makes it look like there's a victory [my emphasis] when I think it should be a redeployment as quickly as possible and let the Iraqis handle the whole thing." (link)
Give the man credit for his honesty if not for his perfidy.

Murtha, the traitorous scum, should have his fat ass trotting around the exercise yard alongside Kennedy for all the love-starved convicts to savor - forthwith and forevermore.
