"Of course, you know, this means war!" *



Well, at least it should:
Frist calls Alito Democrats' "nightmare"
Frist-Alito
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told Republican Party activists on Friday night that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito was the "worst nightmare of liberal Democrats."

Frist, a Tennessee Republican, made the remark to fellow Republicans during a private tour he gave them of the Senate chamber when the Senate was not in session.

Frist was not available for comment following his remarks.

Asked about the senator's remark, Frist spokesman Bob Stevenson said that Alito "is a thoughtful mainstream conservative jurist who is well respected by his peers, by Democrats and Republicans alike."
Nice spin Bob.

Seriously, Frist is talking trash, laughing it up and telling his cronies that the other side is fucked and what are the "liberal Democrats" doing about it? I'd like to see some of our so-called leaders step up to the plate and become Frist's worst nightmare. A filibuster would probably make his head explode.

* "Of course, you know, this means war!" - Groucho Marx, Duck Soup (1933) as well as Bugs Bunny, Porky's Hare Hunt (1938) and numerous other Bugs Bunny cartoons. From Wikipedia:
Worrying that audiences would lose sympathy for an aggressor who always won, (Director Chuck) Jones found the perfect way to make Bugs sympathetic in the films by having the antagonist repeatedly bully, cheat or threaten Bugs in some way. Thus offended, (usually three times) Bugs would often drawl "Of course you know, dis means war" (a line which Jones noted was taken from Groucho Marx) and the audience gives Bugs silent permission to inflict his havoc, having earned his right to retaliate and/or defend himself.
Democrats, you officially have my permission to inflict havoc on the antagonistic, bullying, threatening cheats otherwise known as Republicans.


Comments:
Inflict havoc?
Perhaps you don't realize that the Democrats have done all the "dirty" fighting as of late?

Come on, all the Dems can do is DEMAND that only they know what is best for the Judiciary. If you want to get all bent out of shape about ideology, perhaps you might to ask why the Dems put up Ruth Ginsburg (ACLU Counsel) for the bench.

While you are at it, ask why the Democrats often repeat fiction about others. Seems that the lobby scandal is starting to hit the dems as well--that explains why Harry Reid is shutting up all of a sudden
