It has to be some kind of parody - no-one could possibly spout such absurdity with a straight face:
OVER the last two elections, the Republican Party regained control of the United States Senate by electing new senators in Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas. These victories were attributable in large measure to the central demand made by Republican candidates, and heard and embraced by voters, that President Bush's nominees deserved an up-or-down decision on the floor of the Senate.
Ah yes, I remember it well. The Republicans' Rock The Up-Or-Down Vote ad campaign was legendary in its devastating ruthlessness.
The right's embrace in the Miers nomination of tactics previously exclusive to the left - exaggeration, invective, anonymous sources, an unbroken stream of new charges, television advertisements paid for by secret sources - will make it immeasurably harder to denounce and deflect such assaults when the Democrats make them the next time around.
Oh. My. God. This guy is brilliant. I couldn't come up with stuff this good in a million years hopped up on goofballs.
(I can't help thinking of that "From you, Dad! I learned it from you!" anti-drug commercial...)
Those are the highlights, but he does go on to refer to Circuit Judge Michael Luttig as a "superstar", and the National Review's Cornerites as "sharp-tongued, witty and relentless writers" that potentially pro-Miers senators cowered in fear of.
Me like Bizarro World! Me want live on Bizarro World all the time! Me super good-looking and clever on Bizarro World!
