A Column From Michael Kelly’s mother

I have not been able to bring myself to remove Michael Kelly’s name from the permalinks on the right. This may keep it there permanently.

The Democrat Filibuster

I recognize this senate testimony by Professor Tom Eastman is tough reading. Well worth it though.

Here is his conclusion:
In sum, there is good reason that the filibuster has only rarely been used in the context of judicial confirmations, and never before against a circuit court judge. The use of the filibuster thwarts the will of the majority, and is therefore not only undemocratic but very likely unconstitutional. Moreover, should the Senate decide on its own initiative to repeal the offending use of the filibuster rule, any attempt to use the filibuster to entrench the filibuster would itself be unconstitutional, and would provide grounds for court intervention either by nominees, by individual Senators, or perhaps by the President himself, to insure that the constitutional norm of majority rule is given effect.

Suicidal Democrats
Of Course! John Podheretz has figured out the answer! Here’s a quote:

May 9, 2003 — FOR all you conspiracy theorists out there, I’ve got a hot new one for you: Based on the available evidence offered over the past few days, it appears key Democrats on Capitol Hill are secretly in the employ of the president and his political adviser, Karl Rove.
What’s more, these double agents are using some useful idiots in the media to advance their nefarious effort to discredit the Democratic Party and hand the 2004 election over to George W. Bush without a fight.

It’s the only possible explanation. How else can you decipher the suicidal decision of several important Democrats to make a stink about Bush’s speech on board USS Abraham Lincoln last week?

Fighting the Good Fight
The American Center for Law and Justice is a great site to check the latest in the ongoing battle to preserve religious liberty in this country. Check out the teacher’s aide fired in Pennsylvania for wearing a cross to an elementary school.
Here’s the story from The Washington Times.
