This above report on CNN caused poor Papa Snob’s head to explode. It apparently caused the folks at Crooks and Liars to suffer an brain aneurysm as well.
You see, Alabama Sen. Jeff Session’s was once up as a judicial appointee and was accused of being a racist for making remarks he would later claim were “jokes,” like … saying the NAACP is un-American, calling a white lawyer who defended blacks a “disgrace to his race,” calling a grown black man “boy,” and making statements somewhat sympathetic to the Klan. (Apparently he thought they were cool until he learned some of them were “pot-smokers.”)
O Rly, Dana Bash? Jeff “Just Kidding!” Sessions = Sotomayor? REALLY? Was it a slow news day? Are you part of some revisionist history commission to whitewash (pun unintended) the reality of WHY Sen. Joe Biden, et al, beat the crap out of him during his confirmation hearings? Crazy Grandpa Joe wasn’t being a dick just because he felt like it that day.
But suuuuuuure, Dana, somehow this thing is EXACTLY the same as that, only it is NOT. But thanks for muddying the waters with your extra fluffy puff piece.
More after the jump.
