Liberals Turning Off Democrats

This was a stunner to read from someone who doesn’t like anything about Bush:

The Kennedy episode is the perfect example of what’s wrong with Democrats. Alito is a smart and humble man whose conservative views are a prime reason Bush nominated him to the Supreme Court. Kennedy tried to bring him down by outrageous attacks on his integrity.

The hypocrisy was breathtaking. From his two expulsions from Harvard for cheating to his leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to drown off Chappaquiddick to his notorious philandering, Kennedy has zero standing to lecture on ethics. But there he was, smearing Alito in ways that would have made Joe McCarthy proud. And not a single Democrat rebuked him.

Just think: If Dems take the Senate, Kennedy’s seniority would give him enormous clout and a committee chairmanship. You don’t have to love Bush to say, no, thanks.

From a New Yorker no less.
