Everyman Senator Teddy Kennedy has already come out and said that he will oppose any of Bush's Supreme Court nominees that threaten to "roll back the rights and freedoms of the American people." By "rights and freedoms" the happy-hour ham doesn't mean things like, say, property rights, but instead true American freedoms: abortion, gay marriage, the right of city governments to take a house from a senior citizen and replace it with a Starbucks, etc.

It's funny that the swimmer actually thinks that filibustering a judicial nominee protects our "rights and freedoms." Wouldn't you think that being able to have the duly-elected President have a nominee confirmed by the duly-elected Senate represents our freedoms better than having Ted Kennedy stumble through a harangue on the Senate floor for 16 hours just to avoid an up-or-down vote on the judge?

Maybe the gentleman Senator should think more about getting his party elected to a majority (which would take 6 seats) rather than downing 6 drinks and talking incessantly on the Senate floor, which is already a boring-enough place as it is.
