Diane Feinstein Votes Racist Leslie Southwick Through Judiciary Committee

In this episode of 'What lie should we tell the dumbDemocrats?', Dianne Feinstein is Charlie Brown and Leslie Southwick is Lucy.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

The Republicans have been lying to the Democrats for six years.

Their judicial nominees have been especially skilled at this. Both John Roberts and Samuel Alito said they would follow precedents; then they voted to throw out 35 years of civil rights jurisprudence and limit the time limit for damages for employment discrimination cases to six months. Congress just passed legislation to restore the law they passed so many years ago.

Dianne Feinstein has been claiming to be surprised and shocked that Roberts and Alito lied to her. But when she had a chance to keep another neo-Paleo-conservative off the Fifth Circuit, she blinked.

She voted to let racist Leslie Southwick's nomination proceed to the Senate. Because he said he would be good. Just like Roberts and Alito promised to follow precedent.

He said he wouldn't do it any more. And she believed him!

Feinstein said she decided to break with her party over Southwick because she had met him and determined he is a "qualified, circumspect person."

"I don't believe he's a racist. I don't believe I'm a racist. I believe he made a mistake," Feinstein said.

Dummy. Doesn't matter how often they lie to you. You still believe them! Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Call your Senator and ask him/her to vote against this joker. I'm going to ask Kerry & Kennedy to filibuster his ass:

Congressional Switchboard: Senate (202) 224-3121
