Speaking of our Liberal friends, Harry Stein notes Charles Pickering's new book A Price Too High and asserts that what that distinguished gentleman experienced at the hands of Liberals has no precedent.
More dramatically than any confirmation battle in memory, the Pickering case demonstrates that liberals will seemingly say anything—and tarnish even the most sterling character—to keep control of the nation’s courts.
Of course, cynics see this as merely part of the game. Politics, they’ll say, ain’t beanbag, and weren’t many Clinton nominees to the federal bench similarly done in by Republicans? No, not really—never with the same degree of ruthlessness.
