Of Barnyards and Chickens

(Sep. 19, 2018) — In the normal course of events, your humble servant labors diligently in his posts here at The P&E to avoid profane or vulgar verbiage.  As he has frequently noted, words are important, because they can convey important information, concepts and principles.  However, the use of profanities and vulgarities – even if part of contemporary colloquial speech – to “drive home” the significance of that information or those concepts and principles — does not further the objective.  Rather, it detracts from that goal. Stated otherwise: pejoratives, yes; profanities, no.

On the other hand…, there are certain occasions and events which are so unprincipled and despicable, that the temptation to resort to more “colorful” language surges to the forefront.  Your humble servant has reached that point…, almost.

Specifically, the unmitigated deceitful, juvenile and petulant antics of the Democrats on the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary regarding the nomination hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh simply underscore, for the umpteenth time, why liberals and the Democrat Party – the term “Democratic Party” is intellectually flawed, not unlike the term “Affordable Care Act” – have forever forfeited any claim of right, ability or acumen to govern a free people in a constitutional republic such as ours.

The Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have not only forfeited any claim of right, ability or acumen to govern, they have dedicated themselves to digging their pit of vile darkness deeper and deeper, and with no end in sight.  Thus far, however, there has been no credible evidence to support (or refute) the rumor that the favorite nightstand book of those senators is Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth.

The slimy, barnyard tactics being utilized by these Democrats to metastasize the Constitution’s “advice and consent” powers into a bludgeon to be wielded at Judge Kavanaugh are beyond reprehensible.  They are cowardly.  The Democrats on the Committee have become the Beltway’s premiere political chickens, cowardly fowl petrified that a constitutional originalist dedicated to the rule of law – instead of the rule of the fist – might actually become the next Justice of the Supreme Court.

A trial lawyer will counsel that when you are weak on the facts, pound on the law; when you are weak on the law, pound on the facts; and when you are weak on both the facts and the law, pound on the table.  The cowardly Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are now furiously pounding on their side of the dais desk in a volcanic snit of their own manufacture.

Speaking of angry snits, and following up on the barnyard analogy and the antics of the Democrats on the Committee, it might be said that their slimy tactics constitute a common chicken snit.  Or that other word… oh, come on…, sounds like… ummm… ahhh… oooo…, never mind, it will come to me.  Eventually.
