Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Conservatives Can't Hide Their Crazies

To be fair, all conservatives are crazy in their own way, but some are crazier than others. One of them from the Bush administration, General Boykin was suppose to testify against Kagan, but things didn't work out well.

The GOP abruptly scrapped plans Friday evening to call a retired Army general who drew criticism for church speeches casting the war on terrorism in religious terms to make the case against Kagan in Judiciary Committee hearings scheduled to begin Monday.

Just hours after announcing he would testify, Republicans said Lt. Gen. William G. "Jerry" Boykin's past comments painting the war on terror as a Christian fight against Satan and suggesting that Muslims worship idols would distract from Kagan's actions.

But they kept plans to call three other military witnesses who are expected to strongly criticize Kagan's decision to bar recruiters from the Harvard Law career services office over the prohibition on openly gay soldiers.

That would be equivalent to Republicans having a current or past Klan member testify against affirmative action or have Fred Phelps testify and then quickly scrapping them. Republicans are a bunch of bigoted assholes, some more than others and it's as important to highlight who they scrap as their speakers as who they allow to speak.
