Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, during Judge Sotomayor’s meet and greet tour of the Senate on Tuesday:

But in the gushing department, Schumer was no match for Reid, who gave a lunchtime news conference of his own where he announced that Sotomayor “is going to be a fantastic, superb Supreme Court justice.”

Is there anything in her record that could cause trouble? “I understand that during her career, she’s written hundreds and hundreds of opinions,” Reid said. “I haven’t read a single one of them, and if I’m fortunate before we end this, I won’t have to read one of them.”

Yeah, I always take people seriously when they make such grand declarations while admitting that they have no basis whatsoever for making them.
