Smack Downs of the Week


Stolen from Bring It On:

On Wednesday, March 1st, 2006, in Annapolis at a hearing on the proposed Constitutional Amendment to prohibit gay marriage, Jamie Raskin, professor of law at American University, was requested to testify.

At the end of his testimony, Republican Senator Nancy Jacobs said: “Mr. Raskin, my Bible says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?”

Raskin replied: "Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You did not place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible."

The room erupted into applause.

And then there's Molly Ivins. Finally, someone says it. For months now, in other blog comments, I've pointed out that Hilary's problem is, people hate her. No more sugarcoating. I hate her. Why isn't she for censure? If Blue Gal can grow some, so can she, except that it's all about her, innit? And it's too late now, honey.


  1. Hillary is the media's Dem candidate.

    So we're gonna hear much more about her.

    Hillary and Joe and Joe. The "acceptable" Democrats.

    Spare me.


  2. Jamie Raskin for President. Or something. Anything.

    I'm with Molly: I will not vote for or support Hillary Clinton. Period.

    What is it about the woman? Aside from her inability to take a correct stand, I mean. A female Lieberman, as it were. But over and above that, she's just plain annoying.

  4. I agree 100% No one can tolerate her, especially other women. She would be death to any ticket, and I'm sure the Republican's are hoping she's on one.

  5. As Doug says "a female Lieberman". I find both voices annoying, both to be opportunistic and distinctly lacking in charisma, chutzpah and a "democratic" comprehension of the issues. Why is Russ Feingold the ONLY one to stand up for censure if not impeachment? I realize Quick Draw Cheney would be no improvement but at least the real leader would be visible.

    Ah, America, I'm getting my mourning rags ready. How much longer will we have any semblance of freedom left?

  6. Oh, the Republicans are just begging us to throw them in that briar patch.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
