Senator "Nightrider" Byrd Praises Roberts

I wonder if the Kosmonauts will still be calling him an American Hero:

"One's life is probably in no greater danger in the jungles of deepest Africa than in the jungles of America's large cities," he writes. "In my judgment, much of the problem has been brought about by the mollycoddling of criminals by some of the liberal judges who have been placed on the nation's courts in recent years."

Mr. Byrd essentially endorsed Mr. Bush's primary stated strategy for picking Judge Roberts and other judicial nominees. "The high court's share of the responsibility for our increasing lawlessness lies in two areas -- its zeal for bringing about precipitous social change, and its overconcern for the rights of criminals and its underconcern for the rights and safety of society," he writes.

Mr. Byrd detailed the advice he has given presidents about the importance of naming conservatives and strict constructionists to the bench.

Okay, I guess I agree with that, but...

One's life is probably in no greater danger in the jungles of deepest Africa than in the jungles of America's large cities?

Africa? Jungles? Cities?

Did I mention this guy used to be in the KKK?

Como se dice "racial code words"?

Jeepers, even I'm offended. And Lord knows I'm not the easiest person to offend.

Thanks to NickS.
