Hm, I Wonder Why
The powerhouse witness against Samuel Alito, the one who was to testify that Alito was a member of a "racist and sexist" organization while at Princeton, has been inexplicably dropped from the witness list.
Stephen Dujack was set to testify that the group Alito claimed membership in when he applied for a political job in the Reagan White House, Concerned Alumni of Princeton, had the temerity to oppose affirmative action quotas, which clearly -- in Dujack's reasoning -- made it the moral equivalent of the Nazis. Then fate intervened, and the Democrats removed his name from the list.
"[It] wasn't immediately clear why Dujack was removed from the Democrats' witness list," writes the Daily Princetonian. But perhaps we can suss it out, kind readers.
Could it have had something to do with a previous comparison Dujack made between a different group of people and the Nazis, in a column Dujack wrote for the Los Angeles Times? That earlier group of people comprised everone who eats meat:
Like the victims of the Holocaust, animals are rounded up, trucked hundreds of miles to the kill floor and slaughtered. Comparisons to the Holocaust are not only appropriate but inescapable because, whether we wish to admit it or not, cows, chickens, pigs and turkeys are as capable of feeling loneliness, fear, pain, joy and affection as we are. To those who defend the modern-day holocaust on animals by saying that animals are slaughtered for food and give us sustenance, I ask: If the victims of the Holocaust had been eaten, would that have justified the abuse and murder? Did the fact that lampshades, soaps and other "useful" products were made from their bodies excuse the Holocaust? No. Pain is pain.
Back to the Princetonian:
On Friday, the office of Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), a strong Alito backer, circulated copies of the column. By that evening, Dujack's name had been removed from a full list of witnesses released by the judiciary committee.
There is, however, no proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the two events have any causal connection. Just another example of "the lattice of coincidence that lies on top of everything."
Not that Dujack will give up his crusade to keep off the Supreme Court anybody who doesn't embrace the most extreme form of "affirmative action" -- and veganism. He fights on:
The column has not been specifically cited as the reason for Dujack's removal from the witness list, and he said he still plans to submit written testimony about the alumni group to the judiciary committee to tell senators "how awful this organization was."
"I'm going to want to explain why those of us who know the organization can be filled with revulsion at hearing that a person who was selected to go our nation's high court was proud of his membership in that organization," Dujack said in an email.
But at this point, I think the Democrats are desperately looking for someone to sit on Dujack's head during the hearings. Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Margaritaville, would be an ideal candidate for this leadership position: he has a firm grasp of the fundamentals.

Now if we can people to realize jsut what a wicked and evil woman Sanger was, along with how alien to freedom Baldwin's goals realy were, we could start getting someplace good.
I think if a bright light was shown, as it was in the case of Dumbjack, we would find more and more of the defeatocrats just slinking away,a nd a real discussion and real advancement could take place in this country. Imagine if the Murtha's, Sheehan's, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and other anti-freedom hacks could could be called out as efficiently as this creep was.
We are shackled by phonies like Dumbjack. We can break the shackles anytime.

Are you saying he chickened out?
Borking took a big hit. The swimmer will have to do double duty next week.

My bet is that someone on the defeatocratside realized that having a certifiable wanker like Dumbjack, with a clear record of stupidity, and only PC driven drivel of a derivative sort to offer as 'evidence' was worthless this time: Thanks to rise of free media, the Borking seems to be getting aborted.

"The Democrats sin qua non has become to spend their every waking moment in slowly destroying every single bit of integrity left in the judicial process of electing a Supreme Court Judge, and turning it into a political farse."
