that's one hell of a legal team to assemble so quickly, and included a PR flack as well. Seems like Ms. Hill did, in fact, have a "large entourage" as the senators pointed out.

It was a hit job from the get go.

I bet Biden had something to do with it.

Porchlight

I bet Biden had something to do with it.

Yep. Biden's role in that disgraceful episode was reprehensible. Just thinking about Clarence Thomas' account of it gets me steamed.

Jim Ryan

libs can blame Clarence Thomas.

Did you give the flight clearance, Clarence?

Jane

Me too Porchlight. That book has stayed with me as much as any book I've ever read.

Frau Roggenbrot

I bet Biden had something to do with it.
There has been a standing army ready to stop or neuter any conservative minority. Miguel Estrada comes to mind. Biden is VP for a reason, and it's not gravitas.

It's worth reiterating that when the current dysfunctional approach to treating enemy combatants like common criminals began, Justice Thomas was the only dissenter to favor the traditional approach of exercising the nation's war powers:

The Executive Branch, acting pursuant to the powers vested in the President by the Constitution and with explicit congressional approval, has determined that Yaser Hamdi is an enemy combatant and should be detained. This detention falls squarely within the Federal Government’s war powers, and we lack the expertise and capacity to second-guess that decision. [emphasis added]
I think it goes without saying that if he were in charge, things would be a bit better run.

He and Brown were the most vociferous opponents of Kelo, as well. Guess they have more realistic view of life than their elite bretheran.

Porchlight

I'm really glad to hear that, Jane. I knew you would dig it. I've said it before but in a perfect world it would be read by every high school student in America.

Jane

Some of the best advice I've ever gotten Porch. Thank you again.
