Excerpt Of The Day #2: Coulter On The Alito Nomination
“Sam Alito marks the final purging of the Bork experience.
All the Democrats could do was scream about his inactive membership – back in the ’70s – in CAP, Concerned Alumni of Princeton, which had a magazine called Prospect, which once ran an article, apparently satirical, complaining about Princeton admitting co-eds. In my mind, the only potentially disqualifying aspect of Alito’s record was that he wasn’t a more active member of CAP, a group opposed to quotas, set-asides and the lowering of academic standards at Princeton.
Then this week, we found out Sen. Teddy Kennedy still belongs to an organization that doesn’t admit women. Oh – also, he killed a girl.
I’m fairly certain I’ve mentioned that before – I don’t recall, Mr. Chairman – but I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t mention it every time Senator Drunkennedy has the audacity to talk about how “troubled” and “concerned” he is about this or that nominee. I bet Mary Jo was “troubled” and “concerned” about the senator leaving her trapped in a car under water while he went back to the hotel to create an alibi.
It’s not as if Democrats can say: OK, OK! The man paid a price! Let it go! He didn’t pay a price. The Kopechne family paid a price. Kennedy weaved away scot-free.
But the Democrats are “troubled” about Sam Alito’s membership in Concerned Alumni of Princeton 30 years ago. If they’re “concerned” about lifetime appointments for people with memberships in “troubling” organizations, wait until they hear about Bob Byrd! (Former Kleagle, Ku Klux Klan.)” — Ann Coulter
