Incredibly, the AP account of the departure of Mrs. Alito from the hearings today places blame on Senator Graham for her emotional moment. In fact Senator Graham was defending Judge Alito against the repulsive attacks of kennedy et al.
Lindsey Graham’s apology to Judge Alito for the bullying, mendacious tactics of the Roy Cohn wannabees among the Democrats –Senators Biden, Feinstein and Herb Kohl haven’t been bright lights when it comes to the law, or even coherent, when it comes to Princeton– neither have they been churlish, as have been Leahy, Kennedy, Durbin, Schumer and Feingold.
Their hard left fever swamp supporters may think this is what moves America, but the better bet is that this is the sort of behavior that disgusts the center. The Volokh Conspiracy is making the Joe McCarthy comparison to Teddy.
