Traitor Robert Novak Says Ted Kennedy Looks “Terrible” Filibustering. I Guess It’s Not As Becoming As Outing A CIA Agent

Reported by Ellen - January 31, 2006

Traitor and FOX News Contributor Robert Novak, the latest recipient of FNC’s Republican Rehab, actually had the nerve to tell Alan Colmes last night (1/30/06) on Hannity & Colmes that Ted Kennedy “looked terrible” standing up for his conscience and trying to filibuster the Supreme Court confirmation of Judge Samuel Alito. This from the same Robert Novak who recently told a national television audience that his only regret about outing CIA Agent Valerie Plame were the repercussions for himself.

The discussion began with a clip of an emotional Ted Kennedy arguing against the confirmation of Alito. Colmes said, “The Democrats clearly didn’t have the votes for a filibuster but sometimes isn’t it important to speak up, make a statement, stand on principle, even if you know – I mean you know he’s going to be confirmed, right?”

Novak condescendingly said, “I think Senator Kennedy really looked terrible today. I’ve been watching Senator Kennedy – we’re about the same age, in fact – since he started. And when he doesn’t have the goods, he yells. The more Teddy yells, the worse his case is. I thought he looked really terrible today… The only thing he was saying is that we have to have a liberal judge that agrees with me. The way to get the kind of judges that Senator Kennedy wants on the court is to elect a Democratic president.”

Wrongo, Mr. Loose Lips. President Bush could have named a consensus nominee, the way President Clinton did with Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Republicans know full well that the Democrats would have worked with a more mainstream conservative, the way they did with Justice Roberts. Had the Democrats mounted a more effective opposition, they could have pushed Bush into a more acceptable nomination.
