The Tule Fog Democrats

Email Email Print

The Tule fog is a Central Valley driver’s nightmare:

The visibility in Tule fog is often less than 1/8th of a mile, about 600 feet, but can be less than 10 feet. Visibility can vary rapidly in any area, with sudden decreases to near zero in only a few feet. It is situations like these that often lead to multi-car accidents where one car follows another into a fog bank.

After watching some late night “highlights” of the Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats’ collective meltdown yesterday –thank you again, Joe Biden
I was reminded of those massive pile-ups on California’s I-5 or the 99 when the fog descends but the drivers insist on plowing ahead into the murk.

Beginning with Pat Leahy and continuing all day and into the evening, Democrat after Democrat drove at high speed into a brilliant jurist with 15 years of appellate court experience backed up by prosecutorial chops.

Like they were ever going to lay a glove on him.

Lileks writes occasionally about Senatitus, a peculiar condition that infects United States Senators with an overwhelming hubris, the result of never being contradicted by staff or constituents. Their inevitable surprise at not being the smartest person in the room is a joy to watch, as is their indifference to embarassment.

It all starts again in a half hour, and the smart money is on another round of charges up the hill. Perhaps Senator Biden will take on Harvard today, or Chuck Schumer will bring a copy of Madison’s Notes on the Convention to hold up. More charts. More Roy Cohn imitations from Russ Feingold. More theater and more laughs all around.
