Democrats Hit Possible Snag Ahead of Alito Hearings (Jane Roh, 1/06/06, Fox news)
A key witness to the character of Judge Samuel A. Alito has been removed from the Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats' testimony list, FOXNews.com has learned.

Stephen R. Dujack, editor of The Environmental Forum magazine and fellow Princeton University alumnus, was expected to testify about a controversial student organization that counted Alito as a member. Dujack confirmed to FOXNews.com late Friday that he was no longer testifying, but said he could not elaborate.

A spokesman for Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn, a committee member, said he had been notified of the list change shortly before 7 p.m. EST. Earlier on Friday, Cornyn's office circulated a 2003 Los Angeles Times editorial in which Dujack compared animals killed for food to victims of the Holocaust.
It's fine to compare Republicans to Nazis, but not every meat-eater in America.

Rush covered this today. (Still the best in the business).

What this country could do with some "loyal (not moronic) opposition.

The Gang that Couldn't Shoot Straight stikes again.

Which gang? We knew those people, all of them, were unhinged, and that the Alito nomination was a flash point in an internal war of civilizations.

By blowing the story early, the Republican senator squandered the opportunity to expose the greenie moonbat on the stand. It would have been much more effective to let the guy testify, then cross him on his own, "Your Mommy Kills Animals," connections.

I don't listen to Rush, but I made the mistake of watching a bit of Keith Olberman today. He had a list of the worst people and, in order, they were a teacher who slept with her underage student, a judge who sentenced a child molestor to 60 days, and worst of ALL, Rush Limbaugh who made a mistake talking about FISA warrants surrounding Moussoui (sp?).

There we go again, defaming a patriotic American for the sole purpose of silencing him! When will we learn that it's the seriousness of the charge that's important, not the messenger or his/her truthfulness or biasses.

You do get the feeling that, at least going in, Dujack would consider the Young Republicans chapter at Princeton to be "a controversial student organization."

Either that, or Alito worked part-time at Gino's selling Kentucky Fried Chicken while he was in college.

Update: Dujack has withdrawn as a possible witness and Alito's colleagues on the appellate bench will testify for him. Pretty nice, huh?
