Who’s Out of the Mainstream?
Michelle Malkin has this quote from GOP Sen.Lindsay Graham at today’s Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Judge Samuel Alito:
Let me tell you another thing that's not good for the country. [Reading from a news article:] "With little chance of stopping Judge Alito's confirmation to the Supreme Court, Senate Democratic leaders urged their members to vote against him in an effort to lay the groundwork for making a campaign issue of his decisions on the court."Graham’s statement reminds us of this quote in an article by Democrat operative, Dan Gerstein in Sunday’s Wall Street Journal:
I'll just tell you right now. We welcome that debate. We'll clean your clock.
I mean, Judge Alito is closer to the mainstream of America than Citizens (sic) for an American Way.
We'll win that debate, but the judiciary will lose if we continue to do this.
We don't have any leader in power who will tell our base that we're not going to become a majority party again by telling the majority they're out of the mainstream.
