I read this FIRST thing this morning. OH! It's going to be a GOOD DAY! (emphasis in article below is ALL mine!)
Democrats to force Dobson to testify?
Senator wants to know if he's hiding Miers' pro-life views
Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee might subpoena James Dobson during the confirmation hearings for Harriet Miers to probe the family advocate about "confidential" information he has about the Supreme Court nominee, a Capitol Hill source says. (Yeah, Like Dobson now has confidential clearance that U.S. senators do not have...uh,huh,yeah, that's the ticket,eh?)
Dobson recently said his endorsement of Miers was founded on "confidential" information he was "privy to" but "not at liberty to talk about," according to the political weblog Ankle Biting Pundits. (Sounds almost like a witness protection program deal! And I thought blogs (conservative blogs) were just a bunch of pajama wearin' fools.....)
Although not a Judiciary Committee member, Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., has taken up the cause, pitching the idea to top Democratic staffers on the panel.
"It seems to me, all of the [information] the White House knows about Harriet Miers should be made available to the Senate and the American people," Salazar said. "If they're making information available to Dr. Dobson – whom I respect and disagree with from time to time – I believe that information should be shared equally with a U.S. senator." (If You tell him you HAVE to tell ME? Now EVERY word uttered must be available to a U.S. senator? Would you like to know what we had for dinner last night?)
Citing "insiders," the weblog says Salazar believes Dobson should be called before the panel to answer what he knows about Miers, when he knew it and who provided him with the information. (Bwaaahaaahaaaaahaaaaaa!)
The unspoken suspicion is that someone in the Bush administration – presumably presidential adviser Karl Rove – told Dobson that Miers is pro-life and has pledged to vote against Roe v. Wade should she be confirmed, the weblog says. (So now SUSPICION of a converstaion is worthy of a Congressional subpeona? Like FAKE but ACCURATE? Or more like SERIOUSNESS OF THE CHARGE?)
Some of Salazar's colleagues, however, including Minority Leader Harry Reid, believe calling Dobson before the committee as a hostile witness would be seen as a disastrous public relations stunt that would further alienate the Democrat Party from Christian conservatives. (DUH!? YA THINK?!?!? But don't pay no attention to US, that ship has sailed! DO you really think that ONLY Christian conservatives would find this a bad idea? LOL!- Oh, yeah that's right- we are the stuuuupid red-staters. The rest of the country is just like the MoveOn.org/Sheehan?Daily KOS kids.......)
"We're not going to conduct an Inquisition," one top Hill staffer told the weblog. "Salazar's idea is half-baked." (DING! DING! DING! WE HAVE A WINNER!)
But another Hill staffer said Sen. Ted Kennedy, a Judiciary Committee member, likes the idea and is trying to craft it as a "separation of powers" issue rather than a religious issue. (hee heee heeeeee, the sheeple are soo stuupid. hee hee heeeee, yeah SEPERATION of POWERS, heee heee heee)
It might work, Kennedy believes, if Democrats can make it an issue of President Bush withholding information. (Drink another one Teddy, and then see how you can DECEIVE the AMERICAN people AGAIN- just for your own lust of power......creating issues is just perfect.....)
If you would like to sound off on this issue, participate in today's WND Poll.
This is just a PERFECT example of WHY the Democrats keep LOSING ELECTIONS! It's like a high school track runner sneaking into the locker room and filling his opponents sneakers with itching powder, only he actually sabotaged his OWN sneakers.
