12 Oct 2005 Patrick Leahy: On Miers, No Dissent Permitted
Senator Patrick Leahy speaking on conservatives (apparently), Harriet Miers and the Supreme Court nomination:
“…no faction should be permitted to hound a nominee to withdraw before the hearing process has even begun.”
What’s the plan, Pat? Repealing the First Amendment or simply inventing a penumbra that conveniently invalidates it in cases of political dissent?
