You have to hand it to Dick and Dole, they are shameless hypocrites of the highest order. And whiners to boot. After joining their Republican colleagues in obstructing almost every decent piece of legislation to cross their paths in the Senate, now they're complaining because the mean old Democrats won't give a reactionary corporate judge a cushy job for life.
Plus they're threatening to shut down the Senate if they don't get their way. That would be fine by me - because there are few things more important than keeping extremists like Robert Conrad off the bench.
In this last year, President Bush has nominated several persons who are extremely controversial when it comes to civil and consumer rights. For the Fourth Circuit—already the most conservative court in the country—Bush has nominated Robert Conrad, who has never ruled for a plaintiff in an employment discrimination case ...
And by email from NARAL:
Robert Conrad has called Planned Parenthood a "radical, pro-abortion fringe group" that "promotes a radical abortion agenda." What's more, from 1983 to 1986, Conrad served on the board of directors for a so-called "crisis pregnancy center" that provided medically inaccurate information about pregnancy, contraception and abortion.
Just in case you had any confusion about supporting Kay Hagan in November, this should put that to rest. We need Kay to take Dole out.
