how we've grown

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 21, 2005

"It is offensive to suggest that a potential justice of the Supreme Court must pass some presumed test of judicial philosophy. It is even more offensive to suggest that a potential justice must pass the litmus test of any single-issue interest group."

-- Senator Edward M. Kennedy, 1981, at the confirmation hearing of Sandra Day O'Connor (via QandO).

'The key question is whether [John Roberts] will uphold core constitutional and statutory principles," Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, said in a speech on the Senate floor. 'Americans deserve to know if nominees will be on the side of justice and individual liberties, or if they will side with powerful special interests."

-- Senator Edward M. Kennedy, 2005, quoted in today's Boston Globe article, "Democrats Vow to Learn Court Pick's Abortion Views."

    Diogenes, someone ought to send these two quotes to all the media outlets in the country before the hearings begin... showing just how ridiculous Sen.Kennedy is... using his own words!
